It was 40 years ago today that Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band was released. I have so many Beatle related memories that are intertwined with my life. It may be nostalgic, but sometimes being nostalgic does us some good, particularly here on Town Square. So let's share some Beatle memories.

My parents really disapproved of my interest in the Beatles and I had to hide all my pics and posters while I listened to the pop music stations on my "trannie". Now, my Mother actually enjoys listening to the music. I can't stand some of the music my kids listen to and I wonder if any of that will be around in 40 years' time and if I will enjoy listening to it then.

I love the Beatles and my kids have grown up with their music. They know most of the songs as well as I do. We used to play the cds on long car journeys and just sang along. Their favorites, Yellow Submarine and Ob La Di, Ob La Da.
