I ASKED MY DAD TO RECALL HIS ABBEY ROAD MEMORIES
At breakfast with my dad, we listened to The Beatles' album Abbey Road. I found it fascinating the things he remembered & associated with each song.
- •Come TogetherDad: I remember riding in the car with my mom. I was 14. This song came on the radio & she asked me what in the world it was about. I fumbled through explaining lyrics about drugs to my mom such as "he shoot coca-cola."
- •SomethingMe: What does this make you think of? Dad: ohhh, this is such a good one. I think of Mom of course.
- •Maxwell's Silver HammerDad: This is just a silly fun one. I used to play this over and over and over in my room. My mom would bring home old records from the tavern and I had stack of them I'd play over & over.
- •Oh! DarlingMe: And this one? Dad: Mom. And times we were broken up.
- •Octopus's GardenDad: I didn't love this one. I didn't really love or respect the drug trip ones. Until I was into drugs that is.
- •I Want You (She's So Heavy)Dad: Oh! This one goes on and on. I picture driving my Camaro playing this on my amazing stereo system I had. Speakers in the back. Blasting this & Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven. Which I remember was a pink album.
- •Here Comes The SunDad: This one is just a feel good song. I was more into the melancholy ones though. Still good though.
- •The album is long so consider this Part 1. :)
