The song of the week:
The Beatles / A Day In The Life
"A Day in the Life" is a song by the British rock band The Beatles, written by John Lennon with the middle eight by Paul McCartney, credited to John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The song appears as the final track on their album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The song includes portions originally authored independently by Lennon and McCartney, and two cacophonous, part-improvised, orchestral crescendos. Lennon was inspired by newspaper articles on the death of Tara Browne, and a civic plan to fill four thousand potholes in Blackburn. While recording the song, the Beatles were not certain how to fill the gap between Lennon's and McCartney's portions of the song. It was later decided that a partly-improvised crescendo by an orchestra would serve as the bridge.
The supposed drug reference in the line "I'd love to turn you on" resulted in the banning of the song by the BBC.
