Taking a Sad Song and Making It Better...

but how is that possible??

...i forgot to mention possibly the best band i have ever heard....

...the sweet melodic sounds of the beatles...

...how silly of me.

, today, another eventful day driving home from work and these lyrics went through my ear drums (that are slightly enflamed due to my cold, sure you needed to know that) and i all i heard was this:

i wonder if paul realized he would be used by Jesus today? oh paul (using the ever small-lipped british accent)

"...and anytime you feel the pain
Hey Jude refrain
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it's a fool
Who plays it cool
While making his world a little colder
La Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na"

"So let it out and let it in
Hey Jude begin
You're waiting for someone to perform with
And don't you know that it's just you
Hey Jude you do
The movement you need is on your shoulder."
(THAT'S BONNIE IN THE PICTURE)
in memory of dear bon.

..to be completely honest with each one of you this song took me back to room 4 with Bonnie D (perhaps it was talking to spiro last night as well and our long conversation that i enjoyed ever so much) but really. Bonnie and I spoke through Beatles songs, it was just something that was in us. and that, my friends, is a rare and hard find for people these days. if any one of you has a friend that they can speak through beatles songs with do not, i repeat, do not let them go. they're a gift.
(this song was written for john's son julian, right?)
so real quick. top five beatles songs that remind me of bonnie: (i couldn't just put up my favourite 5. thats impossible!)

5. Ob-La-Di-Ob-La-Da (dancing around the room from bed to bed)
4. Mother Nature's Son (i had to take out calico skies because...its not a beatles song and there is just no excuse.) (thank you spiro)
3. Martha My Dear (this was more second term, eh.)
2. Dear Prudence (oh, she was ALWAYS singing this one)
1. Freakin' Penny Lane

Alright, I'm done for now.

You do realize that Calico skies isn't a Beatles song... (even though it's one of the best ever written by Paul...)

and that no one can post comments on your blog unless they have an account. I would suggest taking off this sort of block if you want people to post comments.

i attempted to explain why calico skies isnt a beatles, but is, but instead just put in a good beatles song...we all sang to that one too, right?
