This morning, I was interviewed on a radio program to promote Abby Road. Cool, right? It was meant to be between 3-5 minutes. I was on the air for 13. A lot of that time we spent talking about one of my favorite subjects. The Bealtes.
I’ve never claimed to be an expert. Lke Abby Road’s Abby, I just love their music. When my lovely interviewer started quizzing me on songs and albums, my mind (naturally!) went blank. While pulling answers and non-facts out of thin air, I made two errors…of which I didn’t realize till after we’d hung up.
Mistake #1: “Hey Jude” was the Beatles’ biggest hit. I said “All You Need is Love.” Sorry, lads!
Mistake #2: “Carry That Weight” is not off the White Album, but off Abbey Road. Sheesh. How could I get that one wrong?
I should’ve turned the table and quizzed him about Gwen Stefani and Taylor Swift. Of course I didn’t think of that until an hour later.
We did agree that “A Day in the Life” is an amazing song, and we both have a soft spot for the rare “Mr. Moonlight.”
All in all, it was a pretty successful interview. I did refer to myself as a liar but I didn’t mention Brad Pitt or cupcakes. *nods to self* That’s an A-plus in my book, people.
