Abbey Road

I know I'm late to this party. But a week ago yesterday I spent seven - yes, SEVEN - hours playing Beatles Rock Band with probably my best friends in the world besides my sister, and now I am a little bit obsessed... not just with the game but also with The Beatles. Don't get me wrong, I've always had an appreciation for them. But I kind of knew only the most popular songs, and I used to listen to Beatles Anthology I (not II or III, I only had I) in middle school, and I also appreciated the part the band played in the most fascinating time period ever (the '60s, and especially the cultural revolution in '68), and that's about it. Well, let me tell you what. Over the weekend I bought The White Album, Rubber Soul, and Abbey Road. ABBEY ROAD IS OFFICIALLY THE BEST ALBUM I HAVE EVER LISTENED TO IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. Seriously. So if you haven't listened to the whole thing, or you haven't listened to it in a while, take it back out. Because it is unbelievable, and I can't believe this took me nearly 27 years.

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make.
