Back to the summer of 1966…
I’ve been avoiding The Beatles for too long, probably because, hmmm, who doesn’t like or know The Beatles? (Well, lots of people dislike them and try to tear them down, but I simply ignore that. Ahh pity the FOOL!)
Though 1964 and 1965 were the prime years on the charts, The Beatles still racked up 6 hit songs on the Billboard Top 100 in 1966, one of which reached #1 in June of ’66 (“Paperback Writer.”) This one also charted in 1966 and stayed there for 7 weeks, but its highest position on the charts was at #23.
The video is sort of fuzzy, but here’s George introducing “Rain,” adding that they may have invented MTV. (a stretch, George.)
Love and kisses.
