THE BEATLES WOULD HAVE BEEN NOTHING WITHOUT LENNON, MY GREATEST REGRET IN LIFE IS BUYING MULL OF KINTYRE WHEN I WAS 16 THE THOUGHT I PUT MONEY INTO HIS POCKET MAKES ME SEETH [sic]Let's assume that dave bought the record around the time it was released in 1977. If he was sixteen then, that makes him - scratch, scratch, add, think, carry the one, scratch - 49 some time this year.
I worry about guys like dave: they've got a different perspective on life than the rest of us do. He's nearly 50 and his "GREATEST REGRET IN LIFE" is that he bought "Mull of Kintyre." And he's still seething about it. What might have happened if he'd spent another couple of pounds on the "Ebony & Ivory" single? And what would be a safe distance from Hull in those circumstances?
And let's not even think about "Wonderful Christmastime."
