It must be nice to a Beatle

Today at lunch I walked past a street musician who was playing "Here Comes the Sun" on the guitar. Two Asian businessmen in front of me were speaking animatedly in their native tongue until they picked up on the song. Then one said, in heavily accented English, "Here Comes the Sun." Together they sang a bit, "Little darling, it's been a long, cold, lonely winter ..." It was a lovely moment.

How satisfying it must be for Paul and Ringo to know how much joy they have brought generations, all around the world.

Yes, I know it's a George song, but I bet to these gentlemen it was simply, "The Beatles."


  1. At work recently I mentioned that I adored the Beatles and next thing I know I am part of a Beatle fan club!lol. But I did score a copy of Rubber Soul! yay. I know they say Elvis changed the world but the Beatles changed a generation.

  2. I miss hearing buskers. That was a neat moment.


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
