The Beatles - The Beatles (The White Album)
Well, that's just a great radio station. Very adventurous. We used to play 'Wild Honey Pie' live - it's just two words! Once again, a clever song, to me it's like a "fuck you" song - "We'll just use two words man, y'know". Lot of good tunes, obviously, I always liked 'Dear Prudence' and 'Glass Onion'.

I played it to my son when he was like six years old and I like what he said: "Daddy" - I think I played 'Dear Prudence', maybe 'Julia', and he goes - "this is a sad song, but I like it!" And that's so cool - you're my son!
