I have always been a huge fan of The Beatles…..ever since my neighbor when I was 5 used to make me listen to the Abbey Road record over …..and over. Her name was Kathy and I thought she was the coolest with the her very own record player in her room. At the time, I didn’t care so much for the songs playing on it…an Octopus’s Garden? Oh! Darling! (a little foretelling?)Bang, Bang, Maxwell’s Silver Hammer came down, upon her head? Huh?
As I grew, The Beatles always stuck with me and Abbey Road became my favorite album. I loved how different each song was. My favorite song quickly became Here Comes the Sun. When my daughter was born, we had an instrumental version of the song that we played over and over for her. It is simply one of those songs you never tire of.

Atleast I wasn’t over there during the anniversary fighting this:
