Got Interested in the Beatles Again

00:36 (of Sunday, April 12th 2020)

Today is Wednesday, April 8th 2020 and it was another work day. I worked from home today of course, nothing's changed about the pandemic situation, the entire state is still on lockdown orders until June 10th, at that point it can be extended.

So what did I do today? I got interested in the Beatles again. The last time I took interest in them must've been in... probably 2017 or 2018. I was into them back in 2015, and the very first album I purchased was the 1 album by the Beatles that same year. I remember listening to all the songs there as I drove to and from a university class I was taking back then. A few years later I would gain some more interest in them, do some more reading and watching old videos, stuff like that. I recalled the crazy Beatlemania videos that I saw back then, and for some reason I looked those up again today.

I watched some Beatlemania videos, read some Beatles related content, and listened to a bunch of Beatles songs. In particular there was one Beatles song that I listened to for the very first time today and that was You Can't Do That. I read that George Harrison had come up with the melody at the intro of the song, and I wanted to check it out. I should've written about the experience the day of, but I can still recall a bit of it. I thought the melody was pretty cool, but I wasn't that impressed with it.

Later on in the day I think I went out driving, since it's been forever since I last drove my car, and that melody kept going through my head. I listened to the song a few more times, and I though the melody was very nice and catchy. Yeah it was a great song.

I saw some other Beatles videos and listened to other Beatles songs, but that was the rare experience of listening to a Beatles song for the very first time. I've listened to most of them at this point, but I admit there are still a few I haven't listened to, which is a good thing. I can have that experience of listening to those songs for the first time and write about it if I can.

That was my day today, there wasn't much else remarkable about it.
