Paperback Writer

My favorite Evansville radio station recently placed the Beatles’ “Paperback Writer” in their song rotation. I heard it today right after the Cold War Kids’ “Hang Me Out to Dry,” and the thought that struck me was how much these two songs written almost 30 years apart fit together so well musically or really how well Paperback Writer fits with most of the stuff on 96.9.

To me this is either an indicator that…

  • the Beatles were way ahead of their time
  • the Beatles are still extremely influential in modern rock especially pop indie/emo
  • the Beatles are were a super rockin’ band whose music is still extremely powerful decades later


  • all of the above

Yeah I know this is nothing new. O well.
