Today’s offering from my look at ‘Tunes I Love’ is the incomparable 1967 Double-A side vinyl track from The Beatles, “Penny Lane”…
Released along with “Strawberry Fields Forever” when I was but a mere rug-rat, this song is synonymous with more than one era of my childhood. I’ve never been one to religiously follow any particular band, or genre of music for that matter – as you’ll start to appreciate as I get round to more of these posts from ‘Tunes I Love’. Personally I select my music based on a simple ‘like’ or ‘dislike’ factor, rarely know the names of the band or song, just that certain music ‘clicks’ with me I suppose.
I remember the tune of Penny Lane from my school days initially, and then later on, from my teens when I dated a lovely filly by the name of Penny. I had met her on a cycling holiday, but she lived ever such a long distance from me, so inevitably the romance fizzled out. But whenever I hear ‘Penny Lane’, it takes me back 🙂
I hope you enjoy 🙂
