A live Beatle
This didn’t make it into the readings calendar in the paper that comes out today/tomorrow, because we got the info too late, but I just thought I’d let all Beatles fans know that Paul McCartney will be doing a reading and signing of his children’s book High in the Clouds this Friday at Third Place Books (17171 Bothell Way NE, 366-3333) at 1:30 pm. And it’s free.
Speaking of being high, I was on a road trip recently and we listened to the best Beatles album Rubber Soul — don’t argue! it is! — again and again. The best song on the best album is, obviously, “I’m Looking Through You,” but I also recommend revisiting, for anyone who hasn’t heard it in a while, “Girl,” the song where they inhale incredibly loudly again and again. The louder you play it, the better.
