In the Chicago airport I heard Come Together wafting out of a restaurant. Luckily, there was a store right next door that Ohhh Boy wanted to look in so I could stay in the hall and listen to the rest of the song. a-hard-days-night-george-4 Then we walked by a player piano with Something playing.

The very lively pub we ate in last night played Beatles and solo Beatles 90% of the time we were eating. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif I *almost* told Ohhh Boy and Ahhh Mom to go on the guided tour of Buckingham Palace without me.

That's so cool! A restaurant with Beatles music playing!a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

That reminded me... in the shop where I saw the Maxwell's Silver Hammer wine, on the shop radio came Come Together

There's sure been a surge in Beatley Moments recently, hasn't there?

For the assignment in composition in music today, I tried my hand at laying down the bassline and chords for my own piece (on a computer programme called Reason) that will be assessed later this year. I had the tab on the computer with the different bass sound types open in the background and couldn't decide what one to have. Then at the last minute, I saw one of the sounds was called "MACCA Beatle Bass"! I just about filled two bars (I think ahdn_paul_01) with it before I had to log off.

I hope you can work on that some more! I need to have a look at that program... You're very lucky!

Ron Nasty and I just popped into pub in Sevenoaks before heading to Knole Park. I am sitting across from this lovely picture:

It's just too great to see your heart happy so here is another Beatley moment from a Beatley day. 

Our topic in this term in music is 'Masterpieces' and my incredible music teacher, the one that turned me into a Beatles fan, has chosen Pet Sounds and Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band as two masterpieces!beatlemaniacs_02_gifheart

So we will be covering The Beatles and The Beach Boys and these two fantastic albums until summer holidays, what else do you need to be happy? 

But the best thing about this day was certainly my friend's reaction to the lesson. She, who listens to jazz all the time and thinks rock music is unsophisticated and not particularly musically interesting, has finally admitted some of the Beatles' and Beach Boys' work is actually quite genius. It came really Out Of The Blue and she even wants to listen to more! Now I feel elated, maybe she will grow into a Beatles fan?!

Ron Nasty and I walked into a pub. I picked a table. Then I looked up to see this on the wall over the table:

My extra Beatles-sensory perception must have picked in and led me to that table. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Is it just me or are you in the UK right now Ahhh Girl, either that or Ron Nasty is visiting you here in the states, interesting how BBers will travel to different countries just to see other BBers.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

 ^ AG is in London visiting RN, although there is much more to see in London than just RN (even though I'm sure he is on 'TripAdvisor's Top 10 Things To See' in London list as well).

I'm moving to Germany. That's awesome! Two incredible albums!

To do Revolver as well!

Or a Beach Boys fan. If you listen to Pet Sounds and can't respect the sophistication of the music you need to see someone. @Martha is living the dream. I would have killed for a unit like that.
