I love 'Alligator' and 'Appreciate', but 'On My Way To Work' is awesome – my favorite so far.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Can buy Joe love! If you're going to buy that song, album, or T-shirt anyway; please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes

Save Us is one of my favourites… Interesting how different people have completely different tastes like that.

Really loving "Early Days".  heart  Clearly written for John.  Ugh, my feels.  paul-mccartney

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

I'm convinced that "Road" is about The Beatles. Maybe it's one of his hybrid songs and it's about Nancy and The Beatles, but I get more of a Beatles feel, and that makes me love the song all the more.

Listened a bit more, and my current top-5 (oh, ok, my top half-dozen):

Early Days

On My Way To Work

Get Me Out Of Here (could have been on "Ram")

Save Us (nice Wings feel to it)

Turned Out / Everybody Out There (hard to split them)

I got that same feeling. Especially from the lines…

"We came from nowhere, hiding from a storm. We clung together to keep each other warm."

That reminded me of the story in Anthology they told about laying on top of each other in the van to keep warm after Mal had knocked out the windscreen.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Exactly, Zig! That's the story I was thinking of. And there's the reference to two crazy partners. I also feel the piano riff (a friend referred to it as "plonky") harkens to an early Beatles song like "Not A Second Time."

Glad I'm not the only one.

But then taking the Nancy view. Both were going through marriage break-ups when they met, and probably were not looking to jump into another "deep and meaningful". I don't know about Nancy's, but Paul divorce could certainly be called a "storm" he wanted to hide from. And the clinging together does not necessarily refer to physical warmth, it could also refer to emotional warmth.

Yeah, good points, that's why I didn't commit 100% to The Beatles interpretation.

Right – I don't claim to know what the song really is about. I simply choose to believe the theme is Beatley. a-hard-days-night-john-1
