MASTERPIECE Penny Lane/Strawbe r r y Fields was a turning point not just in music history but also in overall history What a Landmark!
My all-time favorite Beatles song :)
Probably my favorite song
Penny Lane is an actual street in Liverpool. At one time, the local government was trying to rename many of its streets because they were all named after slave traders. This included Penny Lane. However, due to the fame caused by this song, Penny Lane was given an exemption.
Finger pie !
I'm 14 and I've grown up to this Type of music ,I love 80s music even all the way back to 50s music ...I definitely born in the wrong generation haha
This is so weard bla bla bla bla bla bla
connor122403
Me to but I'm ten timeo
I'm 16 and all I can listen to and truely enjoy are the bealtes and 80's music. I was born in the wrong generación
This is when they really started making music no more teeny-bober music although I like their earlier music too
I cant explain how... but music from the beatles and similar to them reaches deep down to my soul...
I have a fish that sings that Don't Worry Be Happy song. I have no idea where it came from. It must be American.
@ASTAROTH
Don't worry, be happy!
Guess what! Is me song!
Penny Lane Kate Hudson's Character in Almost Famous! Love the Beatles now and forever!
I sing this when I'm in the Penylan district.
@pie, no, it's not, if jb popped up on my station I'd sue Pandora...

Forever in my heart! They will never be forgotten!!
This is a nice and bouncy song. I also agree with you cap_stern
A great foil to Strawberry Fields Forever
saying things are overrated is overdone especially when it comes to the beatles. how about offering some unique insights to the music instead of the same old tripe.
Ehh overrated to the extreme
Viva la Queen !!!!
chrismares2
Thanks Sir Paul ...Live on
A true classic. They just don't
make em like this anymore.
lol
Just to clarify (it's only three years later), I probably shouldn't have used the term rip-off. I just find them very similar in theme but different in culture.
While channel surfing one day, came across a rerun of the show Fame. Jimmy Osmond was singing this song. Thought I had taken LSD or something... .
one of my favorite songs by the beatles :D
i didn't know pleasant valley sunday was a rip off of penny lane. thx formerly dbradfor for the enlightenmen t
after 40+ years, the Beatles still RULE !!!
This along with Strawberry Fields was the first music video I ever saw long before MTV. I was living in San Pedro at the time, those were so good times
very strange
stevef1112
EXCELLENT, I was in the 6th grade when this came out. They changed the ROCKIN WORLD!!
Penny Lane on a Friday:)!
penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes

I named my Boston Terrier after this song. She lived for 14 years and this song was the first one I heard after she passed away. I stopped at the store on my way home from the vet and it played over the Muzak of all things.
David Mason played the Piccolo trumpet on this song. Paul McCartney heard one of his performances and knew the sound was right for this song. So, he wrote the notes and they got him to play it.
Thanks april7334. I was on the right track. :)
the beatles have influenced music more than any other 10 bands in history combined. If you have ANY musical background in writing or performing, you know this to be true.
A mac is short for a macintosh -- a particular type of raincoat
What the heck is a mac? Does anyone know? Must be a British term for a raincoat or something.
Pleasant Valley Sunday? Not written by the Monkees, they just sang it. Blame Carole King if you think that is a rip off - she wrote it about a town in New Jersey. Came out in 1967
Why would you say the Beatles are bad?

Whoever says the Beatles are bad are just plain wrong. They rule! Whenever I hear this song, Penny Lane stays in MY mind for a while...
