This has been a long and stressful week for me, and it's not over yet, because I have to pack us all up to go to Long Island for Shabbos Sheva Brachos for my niece. I woke up feeling tense this morning, and decided that I needed a little music to soothe my jangled nerves. As a lifelong Beatles fan, I turned to my Fab Four buddies for help:

I have absolutely no idea what the words mean. All I know is that I find the melody and the rhythms very relaxing, particularly the background shoops. I also think that "got to be good looking 'cause he's so hard to see" and "he's got feet down below his knees" are two of the greatest nonsensical lines in music history. And you gotta love John's blue coke bottle glasses!
OK, I feel better now. Hope you all have a fab weekend!

My favorite is "hard day's night" I sing that when I feel like "I've been working like a d-o-o-o-g" and "should be sleeping like a l-o-o-og".

Nice watching the Fab Four in their heydey. Did you know Paul is coming to Tel-Aviv for a one-night-only concert?

Shabbat Shalom!

Have a great Shabbos!

Mazal Tov!

From the looks and sounds, the song is from their India days, meeting the maharishi or whatever he's called.
