Ticket To Ride
I'm cheating a bit today and adapting some artwork I previously did for college, but it works for this post!
Today's song title is 'Ticket To Ride' which was released by The Beatles in 1965. The song got to No.1 in both the UK and the USA. The Beatles were the fourth consecutive British group to get to No.1 in the USA.
Wikipedia says that Lennon stated that the song related to cards indicating a clean bill of health carried by Hamburg prostitutes in the 1960s. The Beatles played in Hamburg early in their musical career, and "ride/riding" was slang for having sex.
You can watch the video and listen to the song here. It's quite an amusing video, Ringo is fake playing the drums!
Everyone likes The Beatles......what is your favourite Beatles song?
