Two Track: Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

Congratulations to Theresa and Joe Gunn (Jose Pistolas ). They welcomed their first daughter (3rd child) on Friday.
The common misconception is that the song was inspired by LSD.
The truth is John Lennon's son Julian showed him a picture of a girl named Lucy, a childhood playmate of his. In this drawing, Lucy is  flying through the sky with diamonds. Lennon decided to write the song thereafter.

This two track Tuesday goes out to Lucy Gunn. (Who is absolutely beautiful to boot).
