Song of the Day 38: The Beatles - Rocky Raccoon

I, like many people, can remember the first time I really began to immerse myself in The Beatles. It happened during a very strange time in my life, but I can only look back with a smile as I remember my first play through of the White album. I remember tapping my foot along with 'Rocky Raccoon' in the algebra class I never understood, and singing along to 'Julia' every time the world confused me. Everybody has their favorite Beatles song, Beatles album, favorite Beatle even, and I'm no different. 'Rocky Raccoon' will always stick with me because of the classic spaghetti western atmosphere and the immersing qualities of its imagery. I may be 50 years late, but I have the Beatlemania in me.
