Wednesday Morning is today's listener suggestion. It comes from my uncle, Edward "Skip" Morneau. He suggested that I make a collage of references to the urban legend alledging the death of Paul McCartney. According to the legend, McCartney died in a car accident and The Beatles covered it up, replacing him with a look-alike named Billy Shears. Of course all of the evidence for this cover-up can be found hidden in their album art and lyrics...

This collage collects some of the lyrical references to the alleged death that appear on their Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album. (The fatal car accident was beleived to have happened at 5 am on a Wednesday morning...)


She's Leaving Home
Wednesday morning at five o'clock
As the day begins

Good Morning Good Morning
Good morning good morning

good morning, a

Nothing to do to save his life
call his wife in....

People running 'round it's five o'clock
Everywhere in town it's getting dark
Everyone you see is full of life
It's time for tea and meet the wife

Within Without You
We were talking - about the space between us all
And the people - who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse of truth - then it's far too late - when they pass away
