The Beatles – Magic Mystery Tour

29 09 2010

Listened: Thursday September 9

Even though Magical Mystery Tour is masquerading as a crazy circusy album, I’ve always found some of it to be quite dark. The Fool on the Hill is a beautiful song, but it’s so bizarre – he’s a loner on drugs! Blue Jay Way is also very creepy musically; it makes me think of drug paranoia. Maybe those songs are the scary freakshow part of the circus. I Am The Walrus is definitely the fun house.

I’ve always been annoyed that Flying is such a short song. It’s such an infectious groove, I just want it to keep going.
