Welcome to another Monday! I love music as much as books, so Monday is a chance to share a little of what I’ve been listening to this week.
This year for Christmas Santa brought me The Beatles (The White Album) 50th Anniversary. I haven’t listened to this album in a while (Abbey Road is always my go-to Beatles choice), and I had forgotten how many great tunes were on here. Just one fantastic song after another.
Here are my five favorites, although it’s hard to pick. Truthfully, I started this post with my top four, but I just couldn’t leave Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da out.
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Many would argue this is George Harrison’s best song.
I look at the world and I notice it’s turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps
Who knows how long I’ve loved you?
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime?
If you want me to, I will
Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia
When I cannot sing my heart
I can only speak my mind, Julia
I’m So Tired
I’m so tired I don’t know what to do
I’m so tired my mind is set on you
I wonder should I call you but I know what you would do
Happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she’s a singer with the band.
Ob-la-di Ob-la-da life goes on bra
La la how the life goes on
Rules from Lauren:
Every Monday share one or two of songs you’ve been enjoying lately. It doesn’t have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites – just something you’d like to share with others. If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).
