We’ve made it to the top 5 in the countdown and for the first – but not last time – we find a song from the Magical Mystery Tour album.
There was talk of Penny Lane and the song that accompanied it on a double-A – Strawberry Fields Forever – might make it on the Sgt Pepper album but I’m glad they didn’t. There was a Magical Mystery Tour EP that contained songs from the movie and LP that also contained a number of singles that had been without an album release.
This double-A shows a great contrast between the songwriting and performing talents of Lennon and McCartney – one that I think was the primary reason that they were so successful.
