Top 10 Beatles Songs

While in the car (no, we’re not always in the car) the other day while listening to the Beatles, we were talking about them. It’s true. I realized I had been listening and learning from their music for almost 25 years. It’s sort of a faux pas in the music community to mention your Top 10 favorite songs. Or any Beatles favorites, for that matter. But I think that’s a load of rubbish.

Without sounding cliché, their music transcends time and without the recording innovations that George Martin and Geoff Emerick brought to us, the recording and music industry would have gathered more moss. There’s only one more thing to say about the Beatles, and it’s that the world would be a less creative place without them.

Words From The Honda Accord

Today in the car on the way to Towson Town Center (We heart our Nordstrom’s) we were talking. Like usual.
Emily was talking about how folk means people. Like the word of the people. Like FOLKS -> VOLKS -> VOLKSWAGON. The people’s car.

I said, “If cars could speak, they’d sound like Bob Dylan.”

Emily replied, “Or Hitler.”

I [heart] Emily. I certainly married the right (yet twisted) girl.

Bye Cath and David

We’re gonna miss you two.
