You Never Give Me Your Money by The Beatles

“OK, you're right!!!!! It's very weird listening to any track in isolation from the magnificent medley on side two of "Abbey Road"!!!! It's difficult not to listen to the whole side of the album isn't it? This was Paul's song lashing out at the endless business wranglings that were going on, particularly since Alan Klein became the bands manager. Macca said, "it's basically a song about no faith in the person". George didn't think much of the situation either saying, "Funny paper - that's what we get. We get bits of paper saying how much is earned and what this is and that is, but we never actually get it in pounds, shilling and pence". Now - we're off to listen to the rest of this album, before we get withdrawal symptoms.....here comes the "Sun King"!!!!!”

I had the urge to listen to The Beatles again and side 2 of Abbey Road never ceases to amaze. This is the start of it but do your self a favour and listen to the whole thing, just gorgeous. #TheBeatles #AbbeyRoad #1

45 years ago (8/8/69) ... Still jamming classics with The Beatles, one of the most trenchant commentators on American Life and life in general. Particularly like the lyrics on this Lennon & McCartney tune ...   'Out of college, money spent/ See no future, pay no rent/ All the money's gone, nowhere to go/ Penny-jobber got the sack/ Monday morning, turning back/ Yellow lorry slow, nowhere to go/  But oh, that magic feeling/ Nowhere to go/ Oh, that magic feeling/ Nowhere to go Nowhere to go/ Ah, ah, ah/  One sweet dream/ Pick up the bags and get in the limousine/ Soon we'll be away from here/ Step on the gas and wipe that tear away/  One sweet dream/ Came true today/ Came true today/ Came true today/ Yes it did/  One, two, three, four, five, six, seven All good children go to heaven/  One, two, three, four, five, six, seven All good children go to heaven/  One, two, three, four, five, six, seven All good children go to heaven'   8

"Abbey Road" - released 26th September 1969. The first Beatles studio album I bought; a long time after the event (it's on CD!). The only Beatles I have on vinyl are the 2 compilations: '62-'66 and '67-'70.   1

McCartney countdown, 1 day left. This is like 3 or 4 different songs pieced together. Some parts were even used in the big medley to end Abbey Road.
