Sgt. Pepper’s anniversary

In Read on July 30, 2010 at 7:51 am

Well, the 40th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s was actually three years ago when Daniel Levitin penned this piece for the Washington Post.  He writes:

A hundred years from now, musicologists say, Beatles songs will be so well known that every child will learn them as nursery rhymes, and most people won’t know who wrote them. They will have become sufficiently entrenched in popular culture that it will seem as if they’ve always existed, like “Oh! Susanna,” “This Land Is Your Land” and “Frère Jacques.”

I was in a band called Johnny Supernova in high school.  We capped our one and only performance ever (Battle of the Bands) with a cover of the Sgt. Pepper’s reprise, and walked away with the gold.
