  • great
  • "like every rapper does for pot." What the fuck
  • "John Lennon's kid Jullian went to school and came back with a picture of a girl in the sky with diamonds. John asked who it was, and Jullian said, "It's Lucy in the sky with diamonds." Hence, the name of the song. Many people thought it to be about LSD, but The Beatles realized it after speculation sprouted." --- Just had to throw that down, because a band does a drug doesn't mean that they have to idolize it.... like every rapper does for pot." -------------------- Honestly, I think that's bullshit.

  • All The Beatles recorded was fantastic. The best band of all time [3]
