First thing on my to do list for vacation was to buy Rockband: Beatles edition. My parents rocked out with me (mom finally got the hang of the drums by hitting the color repeatedly as soon as she saw it appear on the screen. 85%- pretty good!). It was wonderful, living out my childhood dream (see old post for proof ). So much of my childhood memories revolved around their songs.  Singing on car trips, singing Yesterday with my 1st grade teacher in the middle of a spelling test, Jessica Meyers explaining to me on bus rides home the innuendos to drugs in Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. She was wise beyond her years.

Then just a few months ago, my sister Jennifer called. “Jasmine…I just realized what the lyrics to Please Please Me mean…it’s dirty!” We sat in silence, thinking of all the times we sang those words at the top of our voices. Never again. Lost innocence is sad.
