Stranded on a desert island…just me and The Beatles

27 Jan

If I ever found myself on a desert island with only ONE music album, it would have to be The Beatles 1962 -1966, preferably the old vinyl record (incredibly impractical on a deserted island in the middle of nowhere I know). This album has it all – all of my favourite Beatles tunes, with a song to suit my every mood of my desert island experience. I would play We Can Work it Out, Day Tripper, and Yellow Submarine to keep my spirits high during the day when the mood was light-hearted and fun ( who can resist a song whose chorus lines read ‘ We all live in a yellow submarine / yellow submarine, yellow submarine….’) ; Hard Day’s Night, Eight Days a Week, and Ticket to Ride as the sun was going down and the reality of being trapped on a the island would begin to sink in; and Help!, Yesterday, and Nowhere Man for those lonely nights on the sand dunes. I Feel Fine would be the tune to play when I envisage rescue to come along and take me home! A truly versatile album that has stood the test of time, this has it all, and is definitely one of the music albums that I will be listening to forever.

      haha i’m not that old either – many of these songs were recorded 20 years before I was born! But they are time-less classics!

    I have this exact CD (and the blue one too). But, come to think of it, so does probably half of the rest of the world.

    It really is a classic album. I came to the Beatles late in life, but I’m finally starting to appreciate how iconic they are/were.
