Tuesday's Tunes!

I count George Takei's Facebook page as inspiration for today's Tuesday's Tunes song.  He posted this photo a few days ago and now, of course, I can't get it out of my head!


Yep, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.  It's not my favorite Beatles song; honestly, it might not even be in the top ten (there are so many great ones, after all) but there's something undeniably enchanting about the melody.  I know there's many rumors about what it actually means but I like the story about John Lennon's son Julian, as a child, drawing a picture and calling it 'Lucy - in the sky with diamonds' - named after a girl in his class. 

The video I found on YouTube doesn't exactly fit with that story, as it's a cartoon and a pretty trippy one at that.  So maybe Paul's story on the origin of the name was closer to the truth?



I'm linked up over at Leslyn's Lovely Life for Tuesday's Tunes!  Pick a song and come join us!
