Song of the Day: 'I'm Only Sleeping' by the Beatles

A favorite from "Revolver" -- or "Yesterday and Today" for you old-school Americans -- which is one of seven Beatles albums I own. ("Help!," "Rubber Soul," "Revolver," "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Magical Mystery Tour," "Abbey Road" and "Number Ones.") I briefly called the Beatles my favorite group in the late '70s -- probably after seeing the Bee Gees and Peter Frampton remake of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and getting a "Beatles" cassette at the Green Acres drugstore on Chicago Road in Warren. It turned out the bargain bin recording wasn't by "the original artist"(!), but the songs were so good I loved 'em just the same, After going on a post-Fleetwood Mac Beatles bender this past weekend, I asked a friend with a big record collection if he could send me Zip files of "Let It Be" and "The White Album" -- the two I'm most interested in learning more about (but not paying for) -- and he says he might, but assures me I have the best already. Thoughts?

The White Album has "I Will," right? Case closed.
