The Beatles Explain Life




This morning, Ben Orlin took me down memory lane, taught me a new word ("carpaccio"), disclosed one of his fantasies, and shared some musical insights, while using the above song to explain "the essence of math," as only Ben could. Not a bad start to a Wednesday morning:

(one line: "If real math is a wild animal, then school math is its taxidermied corpse.")

...it all makes me wonder what Beatles' song best explains American politics these days.
I'm debating between "Help!" and "Nowhere Man." :-(
