My God. I thought about that after my post and realized I don't know if there's a bass!

"Tell Me Why" knocked me down when I was a kid

I mentioned recently in a thread I started that I am a huge Beatles fan. Therefore, by nature, I don't have a favorite because, to me, they created so many great recordings. But somehow the uplifting "Penny Lane" always makes me feel warm and good whenever I hear it.

I remember when it came out in early 1967 when I was 12, with "Strawberry Fields Forever" on the other side of that 45 RPM single. It was the first record I ever bought with my own measly money. What a great record!

This particular record, in large part, is what I meant when I said in my other thread that The Beatles brought me in my youth from a flat, mono, black-n-white world to 3D, stereophonic psychedelic color. (Meanwhile, BTW, TV had just made the total transition from B&W to color by early 1967, with the major push to convert occurring the 1965-1966 season.)



Then came their Sgt. Pepper's LP:

How much The Beatles' look and sound had changed drastically in just three years. Three years!

"Come Together" and "Don't Let Me Down" are the reasons I want a Rickenbacker.

So many songs to choose from, and such a broad spectrum over the years!

But I would say:

(1) You're Going To Lose That Girl

(2) You've Got To Hide Your Love Away

(3) a fun one:
"filling in the ticket in a little white book
in a cap, she looked much older
and the bag, across her shoulder
made her look a little like a military man"

You've Got to Hide Your Love Away. Especially the video from the movie (Help!).

Wow, alcohol and threats of bodily harm. Acceptable standards for moderator behavior have certainly changed since I held the mouse.

No one ever said I was acceptable. But you still get that Sam Adams for making people smile.
