Happy Birthday White Album
If I were to pick a soundtrack of my youth The White Album would be it. My childhood best friends, sisters of musician parents, had the complete Beatles collection on original record. Our favorite album hands down was the White Album. When my peers were listening to New Kids On The Block and MC Hammer, I knew all the words to all of the songs on The White Album. The White Album was one of the first cd's that I imported into my mp3 collection, and always lives on my iPod and iTunes libraries. Little Piggies was always a favorite, I usually skip the first track Back In The U.S.S.R. (never been a favorite, although maybe I will give it a try again). And Good Night has always been a relaxing song to drift to sleep to (I have even been known to hum it to myself to help relax myself for sleep).
Apparently The White Album celebrated its 40 birthday last week. "Happy Birthday To You!"
A little trivia about SJ, I was born on the same day that John Lennon was shot, maybe this explains my lifelong love for the Beatles.
