Art is Not Mimicry

...although mimicry can be art.

I saw Tina Turner sing HELP (on TV) years ago.  She caused it to dawn on me that lots of Beatles lyrics were contrary to the mood they were presented in.  For example, HELP is such a happy peppy tune, isn't it!?

Talk about taking a song and making it your own! Watch: Tina Turner sings HELP.

One Pantleg at a Time

(Thank you to AtomicAntiques for the discovery.)

Baby Kangaroo!

Joyful play among species!
