When I’m Sixty-Four

The recent treasure find of our stored Beatles albums, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band and Rubber Soul, has been fun. We didn’t think to also store a record player in 1967. Who knew?

In finally taking the albums out of the storage chest they were in all these years, we decided to frame them, and if we ever have a record player at our disposal we can open up the frame and play the records.

I love all the songs on both albums, but having just turned 64 years old this past June, I gravitated to the track on side two of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band, “When I’m Sixty-Four”.  I liked this song in 1967 and used to laugh and think, ha, 64, that’s funny. And here I am now. Ha Ha and Ha!!

The song has been running through my mind in an endless loop since Sunday.

    You found a great album in your collection. Framing them is a good idea. At least they are now on display and can be a good conversation piece. It would be even better if you could hear the great music on your album, it would be so much nicer on a good record player. Record players are not all that expensive and are becoming popular again. How ironic that you would dig out the song when I am 64. That’s great!

      We figured getting them out of the storage chest they were in and in to a frame was a first good step, and maybe one day soon we’ll go to record-players-for-sale.com 😉

    How apropos that a song you loved back in the day is now quite relevant… I loved the Beatles too. Happy Belated Birthday! 🙂

    now I’m 65 and I’m still singing this song, when I have my guitar in my hands – and I am thinking of all those human beings, who did not have the luck to reach such an age …

      Isn’t this a fine time in life? And my husband is still sending me Valentines, birthday greetings, and bottle of wine.
      Yes, we are lucky to have reached such a wonderful age. Keep that guitar going 🙂
