There’s a Beatles Song for Every Occassion

That’s what my Dad always told me.

And he was right.  For our dance together I chose In My Life by The Beatles

Maybe you’re the type of person who has heard this song and thought – SAP-PY. (Kate I’m looking at you).

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain

All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

But when I hear this song I think of my Dad.  It makes me think “There’s a Beatles song for everything,” and it makes me think, isn’t that what every kid should have, a parent who loves them more than anyone else in the world.

I think so.


Thanks for the dance Dad and all your love before and since!

You Tube Fridays

YouTube is really helping me out these days with YouTube Fridays.  Today, Yoko Ono is asking the world to spread messages of peace using YouTube in celebration of John Lennon’s 70th birthday.

I’m a Beatles girl through and through.  Saturday Night Oldies were a staple in my house growing up, and the soundtrack to our family road trips was a happy mixture of The Beatles, Niel Diamond, Oldies mixes, and We Sing Silly Songs.

So for this week’s YouTube Friday I give you a tribute I found to John Lennon:

Followed by one of my favourites – In My Life

What’s your Favourite Beatles/John Lennon Song?
