1-2-3 1-2-3!

That's what John Lennon yelled right before tearing into a rocking rendition of "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" on the Anthology 2 album. That is such a gorgeous song, I love it. In my opinion it has some of their tightest harmonies. So, anyone else on here a huge fan of The Beatles? I'm turning my poor kids into fans, too. My two year old recognizes Paul McCartney's photograph and my four year old was actually able to name his favorite Beatle without me prompting him with their names. FYI, he and I have the same favorite--Ringo.

I am totally in love with all the Beatles merchandise I can buy on Etsy. Ja is getting a Yellow Submarine mei tai in the mail. I am saving my money--ha ha "saving"--to get a Rocknrecycle bag for college next semester. The hard part is picking out which one I like best. So far I'm leaning towards this one. I know it's not Abbey Road, but it appeals to me. I like how they're just hanging on the beach, having fun. Too bad it's such a cold day, though. You can just tell that Paul is standing there shivering. The others had the good sense to leave their long sleeved shirts on. That Paul, always wanting to be different. He'd fit in good on Etsy. Who knows, maybe he's already there selling tie-dyed socks and mens' shirts.


  1. I love when a Beatles song is playing when my mom is around, she starts telling me stories about when she was a teenager!

  2. I have to say I have never been a huge Beatles fan. I like a few of their songs but they just don't do it for me. I'd rather listen to some Buddy Holly, or the Doors, or Led Zeppelin. :)
