I don't know if the Beatles ever wrote or recorded a bad song. A Day In The Life is a fantastic song on their greatest album. Neither music nor 1967 were ever the same. Bravo.

Paul did not die, they were just on drugs. That's why some of their songs have weird lyrics and might make it seem as if they're clues to Paul is dead

Miley Cyrus and Wayne Coyne and his band the Flaming Lips did a great cover of this song on Conan's show. Their performance was quite eccentric and trippy. Watch it on You Tube. They have a Beatles tribute album called A Little Help From My Fwends.

Sometimes it's sad how people just stop & stare instead of reacting or doing something.

I played this for my dog to see if he could hear that inaudible note at the end... I don't know if he heard it or not, especially since he found his way to America somehow so I won't be able to try again.

50 years since they took over America. This music will last forever.

I did a presentation on A Day In The Life, but I went over on my time limit, because the song exceeded the time limit. I must've talked too much before the listening.

Finally, at 10 0'clock I go to my friend's house and do stuff, I go home at about 1:30, listen to my mom scream at me until about 2:30 for being so late, and then I prank my sister as she's asleep, then I go to sleep until 7:00 for tomorrow!!!! That was A day in the life of me!!!!

I chuck the stone at his head and I run into his house, take something (like ice cream or money or something, anyways) and I run back home. I eat lunch and then go to the train station and go anywhere (literally anywhere, don't tell mom) I usually go to the ghetto of the town 14 miles east of us. Then I beat someone up, take their money, give that money to a homeless person, then I sit around and do nothing, and then go home, eat dinner, and go back out do some other s**t like that.

So then I go two houses over to my other neighbor's house! I climb up to the roof, slide through the secret hole that leads to the attic. I go downstairs and freak the family out (again) and take a bagel as I casually walk out. I go back home and make fun of my sister for half an hour and then I go outside again and instead of abusing more neighbors, I go to my mortal enemy's house. He has been expecting me. He holds a stone. I pick one up too. We walk in circles around each other. Next comment.

A day in the life of me... I wake up and go straight across the street to my neighbor's house. This neighbor is known around my town as Mr. Dickhead (not his REAL name obviously) but he really is a dickhead. I pick up a stone and chuck it at the door and it leaves a loud BANG! I run though I hear Mr. Dickhead scream I'm calling the cops again though he never does b/c he doesn't have a phone. View the comment above for more!

Call me insane (I won't be offended), but I can compare this very closely with Bohemian Rhapsody.
