Think personal essays, w Fab Four as the thread
These essays are not about the Beatles so much (though you do learn a lot about "Penny Lane" and "Strawberry Fields") and not always about song composition (though you do get some analysis, like "I'll be Back" or "Tomorrow Never Knows"). What you get is Beatle songs and the meaning they had in the lives of the writers, just as suggested by the title. Some of these are ver personal, and drift away from the Beatles songs. Others are exquisite mini-memoirs. Some are social commentary, like the"Hester Skelter" piece. And some are just about why somebody likes a Beatles Song, like David Duchovny's "Dear Prudence." I loved it. But I love personal essay writing. I will listen a second and probably third time too.
