Saturday Song: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band/With A Little Help From My Friends

Fifty years ago on June 1st, the album was first released. When I was about six or seven, my parents bought a copy. I enjoyed listening to it, although I couldn’t understand most of the songs, and a few of them seemed wild to me. Ten years later when my brother got his first drum set, he played along with the record. Today, I still have the album on CD and am listening to it, as I write this. I searched in vain on YouTube for the original title track, but the closest thing I found was this. Enjoy, and have a great Saturday.

  1. I remember waiting for our music appreciation class to start. I sat listening to my transistor radio when Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band came on. It was brand new and I wanted to hear that Beatles song. As I grooved to it, Mrs McMaster came into the music room and I had to turn off the radio. I felt disgusted that I couldn’t listen to that song all the way through but what else could I do? I bought the vinyl album but it got all scratched up because of my carelessness and my sister playing it all the time. I later bought the marble-coloured version. I don’t have the CD yet but I might buy it someday when my budget recovers.
