Friday Music


My 8 year old son is seriously into the Beatles: in particular post 1966 era Beatles- the time whn they got interesting. He prefers the original albums and not compilations. Funny thing is, although slightly older, this era also marked my musical awakening. I also preferred the original albums (I have never fully understood people who only want ‘Greatest Hits’ of any group- listen to a full work: it’s highs and lows).

So this is another Friday music in tribute to him, who when it comes to music I often say ‘I am your father, Luke’.

This track also used to be my favourite Beatles track- it is his as well.

I have chosen this as:-

1: You can’t go wrong with ‘The Beatles’. You really can’t (OK maybe ‘Why can’t we do it in the road?’ Or ‘Revolution number 9’).

2: One of my sons has, in his continuing musical odyessy,  rediscovered ‘The Beatles’ and plays them loudly often.

3: A few days back, he was listening to this when I came into the room. At one point, as the key changed he said ‘Dad- is this the middle 8?’
