Picture Imperfect

Exploring Atlanta: December 2022

When I get older, losing my hair
Many years from now
Will you still be sending me a Valentine
Birthday greetings, bottle of wine
If I'd been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four

The Beatles (1967)

"When I'm Sixty-Four” was written by Paul McCartney and released on the Beatles’ 1967 album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. McCartney wrote the song when he was about 14, (probably in April or May 1956) and it was one of the first songs he ever wrote. The song was recorded in a key different from the final recording; it was sped up at the request of McCartney to make his voice sound younger. It prominently features a trio of clarinets (two regular clarinets and one bass clarinet) throughout. Source: Wikipedia
