I have mentioned several times here that my brother and I agree that the greatest songwriter of our era was John Lennon. I will admit that his lyrics can be over the top politically, just listen to the ending chorus of “Happy X-Mas (War Is Over)”. Even the title says it going to be political. But that doesn’t stop me from enjoying the song. In fact, the Christmas “season” doesn’t start until I hear “Happy X-Mas” playing somewhere randomly. This year it was just last week that it played on the radio while I was not at home that I heard it.
My granddaughters are big fans of the Beatles as well. It’s not all that surprising since their mother has more Beatles stuff than I do. When the girls were infants, I could calm them down just by singing “Yellow Submarine”. So I wasn’t in the least bit surprised when granddaughter-the-elder handed me this little thing she made. I keep it on my desk.
And that’s what I try to keep in my mind at all times; “All You Need Is Love”. I will have the Beatles channel playing today. I hope I hear this song several times.
