"Paperback Writer" is a song written by the Beatles back in 1966. I was, um, younger then, and I remember listening to it and other Beatles songs throughout my life. But I never made the big jump to CDs. I always wanted to replace all my cassettes with CD but it was expensive and music became less of a focus for me. In the back of my mind, I have always wanted to start my collection, especially the classics, like the Beatles.
Well, over the week-end while shopping at Target, I remembered my goal and started looking for Beatles music, which have been rather scarce the last few years. And there it was. A CD composed of various singles that made it to number 1 and "Paperback Writer" was among them.
Today, for the first time ever, I figured out the first four words of "Paperback Writer." I've known for some time that the back vocals in the second verse were from the French children's song "Frère Jacques", but it wasn't till today, that I figured out the first four words.
I'm not sure rather that's funny or sad or some combination of the two and then some. But what a dork.
