“Day In The Life,” is widely considered one of the best Beatles songs of all time, ALL TIME! It’s the last track on the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album. Perhaps you can argue the merit of this statement, but then Sotheby‘s would retort by saying exactly what they said to describe the song to begin with, “the revolutionary song that marked the Beatles’ transformation from pop icons to artists.”
Now comes the estimated ticket price of the manuscript at only $500-700,000. JUST A MERE HALF MILLION DOLLARS. So scrape up your pennies and get ready for June 18th, when the lyrics finally go on sale.
In the meantime, watch the trailer for the Beatles Rock Band because the Beatles attorneys are such incredible ninjas that there are no [lastfm]Beatles[/lastfm] videos online.
