Been a long time since I did a song parody, hasn’t it? And I know what some of you are thinking. “Erica, why do you always choose old songs to parody?” Well, duh. Because I’m old! Whaddaya want from me?
But come on, everyone knows Beatles songs. Today’s selection is “If I Fell,” featured on the A Hard Day’s Night soundtrack. Here is the proper version, complete with lyrics. If you haven’t heard this before, enjoy. If nothing else, take a moment to fully appreciate what beautiful harmonies John and Paul made.
And while you listen, replace their lyrics with mine. Come on, sing along!
I’d apologize to Mr. Lennon, but I suspect he just might have liked this version. 🙂
In other news, I had my root canal yesterday. The good news is, I was in the best of hands. This endodontist has over 20 years of doing just that — root canals, and nothing else. He could do the most complicated ones in his sleep. The bad news? He doesn’t take my insurance plan, so I had to pay full price. The good news? He was able to save the existing crown, so I don’t have to redo that. The bad news? When he got into the tooth, he discovered that in two of the branches, the nerves were dead (expected), but in the third branch, the nerves and tissue were still alive and inflamed (not expected). And when he poked into that, I damn near shot through the ceiling. He had to give me two more shots. Not fun.
I have to go back next Tuesday to finish the procedure. But, as he put it, “no more surprises.”
I really don’t feel like going to the gym today. Can someone please convince me that my body isn’t going to fall apart into a cellulite-riddled heap if I skip today?
