#108 the beatles – strawberry fields forever

sorry for the lack of updates over the long weekend. i just got back from cameron highlands, and it’s been a good time of rest and fresh air, just the thing i need. predictably, “strawberry fields forever” kept playing in my head – at least the bits i remember it for most: the typically quaint mellotron ditty that pops up here and there after opening the song, the ominously descending horns and strings, and the slightly constipated drum sequence every time john sings “let me take you down”. it’s funny how songs sound when they’re recalled at specific moments, playing like an imaginary soundtrack that you almost have full control over in orchestrating the whole thing perfectly to your every step and sideways glance.
