The Beatles “Strawberry Fields Forever”

I’m going to trace back the last 24 hours or so, to give you a better sense of why I’m posting this: 1) watching the Grammy’s last night, I casually surfed over to Pitchfork; 2) upon browsing the ‘Forkcast’ section, I noticed a brief regarding Eddie Vedder doing a hotel karaoke bar version of U2’s “Where the Streets Have No Name” during the Chicago Cubs Fantasy Camp; 3) I found the Eddie Vedder karaoke video on YouTube and soon thereafter discovered he also sang, along with apparently a few other attendees of Cubs Fantasy Camp, “Yellow Submarine” by the Beatles 4) since I’ve been spending the last couple weeks working on a song/podcast/mix involving 2 of my favorite 3 rock songs of all time are probably “Crimson and Clover” by Tommy James & the Shondells and “Sloop John B” by the Beach Boys – since “Yellow Submarine” had the Beatles fresh on my mind, it’s of course no surprise that “Strawberry Fields Forever”, the 3rd of the 3 favorite rock songs of all time, was soon as well, so enjoy.

“Strawberry Fields Forever” is named after the Salvation Army house where John Lennon played as a child. It was originally recorded for the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band but was instead included as an A-Side single with Sir Paul’s “Penny Lane” accompanying it on the flip side.
