Ah, back to early Beatles. I can’t read sadness into early Beatles even if i try. It just gets dicey around “Paperback Writer” and “Eleanor Rigby.” Music is the only drug i’m on… aside from my antibiotics.
Has “Penny Lane” ever made you cry? I’m sort halfway to tears right now, and of all the Beatles songs i could think of that’s the one that popped into my head. I think it’s the reminiscent quality of “Penny Lane” … it’s a lot like Paul is recalling it, or saying goodbye to it, but he’s not really a part of it even though he used to be. Wow, this is gonna be a depressing night for you all and I, isn’t it?
