September 21 – The Beatles – Rubber Soul

Beatles RubberThe good new is, I found a copy of Rubber Soul. The bad news is that I found it in the library and have to return it in three weeks. I had always heard that Rubber Soul was the Beatles’ best album, and I wanted to agree, but I confess that I’ve never actually heard the whole thing before, only the songs from it. And listening to it for the first time tonight, I can say that I think that I do indeed agree. Even though I don’t think I have ever heard the Ringo song from this album, it is a consistently strong album with really great songs. How can you go wrong with a CD that begins with “Drive My Car”?

Workout-wise, too short, and I may have to combine it with Bobby Rydell.

I also took out from the library a set of CDs to learn to speak Spanish. It’s meant for drive time, but what the heck. I decided that it was about time I learned more than how to count to five, say “see you tomorrow” or “esta es un robo,” which I picked up from watching Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid too many times. I was 13 when the movie came out and I must say that Robert Redford made a big impact on me. Still does, though it’s not quite the same.
