“Penny Lane” is a great example of how the Beatles integrated British post-war dance-hall music with American musical influences:
An even better example is this:
The Beatles during that era were a great example of musicians coming together and creating art.
I actually had something similar to this happen to me last year:
When I was living in Hannibal last year there was a crack-addict woman who frequently visited me. She was just so beautiful, a complex hybrid mix of Asian, American Indian, African-American, and Caucasian. I once told her that she was one of the three prettiest women in Hannibal. She had a boyfriend who was suspicious of me and he would cruise by my building looking for her car. J. would park a couple of blocks away on Spruce St. and I’d pick her up there and later take her back to her car. My sleep patterns were perturbed at the time; she couldn’t rouse me by banging on the door one morning, so she climbed through a window and woke me up.
