Today's Great Thing, No. 2

So we alcoholics that aren't drinking are often reminded to note the great things in life that we can appreciate at any given moment.

Today's great thing? Ringo's drum sound (and playing) on "Paperback Writer."

I remember riding in the backseat of my friend's family car & looking at the cover of that .45 that the older bro had just bought. Then listening to it & Rain all afternoon on their dad's "hi fi."

Man, 1966 was a pretty good year for self-taught Liverpudlian quartets wasn't it? And Ringo was a full-on linchpin to that silver mercury sound:

1) Taxman (Harrison)
2) Eleanor Rigby (Lennon/McCartney)
3) I'm Only Sleeping (Lennon/McCartney)
4) Love You To (Harrison)
5) Here, There and Everywhere (Lennon/McCartney)
6) Yellow Submarine (Lennon/McCartney)
7) She Said She Said (Lennon/McCartney)
8) Good Day Sunshine (Lennon/McCartney)
9) And Your Bird Can Sing (Lennon/McCartney)
10) For No One (Lennon/McCartney)
11) Doctor Robert (Lennon/McCartney)
12) I Want to Tell You (Harrison)
13) Got to Get You Into My Life (Lennon/McCartney)
14) Tomorrow Never Knows (Lennon/McCartney)

Singles: Paperback Writer/Rain (released June 10, 1966)

Eleanor Rigby/Yellow Submarine (released August 8, 1966)
