An old standard from a magical mystical time

One verse that haunts me from”Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” is ‘the newspaper taxis appearing on the shore.’ So many intoxicating factors appear in this song- the joys of parenting a young child, the social movements of the day, OK-drugs, the art scene and of course, if you just happen to be one of the ‘fab four’ at the height of your game, isn’t fame supposed to be a bit intoxicating? Oh yes indeed. But don’t let it go to your head, Fred.
