Song: In My Life
Artist: The Beatles

Many people have heard this song, and a cursory listen reveals no more than a catchy tune and a dedicated love song. However, upon closer listen, it is a song with the utmost reverence to every person and place the singer has ever familiarized themselves with. A touching song, I never paid it much attention; until New Year's Eve this year.

My best friend/boyfriend is not a music buff, but his friend Eric had started him listening to the Beatles. I was thrilled; I love the Beatles, so I began burning him songs. We were at a New Year's party with his parents, and we are very conservative in front of them; for instance, we've been dating for a year, and I still don't think they know. However, even though they were in the room, he starts talking about this song. He begins to sing (another thing I've rarely heard him do) very softly, "But of all these friends and lovers, there is no one compares with you..." Before long, the room has grown silent, but he hasn't noticed; he was looking me in the eye, and he sang "In my life, I've loved you more". This was one of the most powerful moments of my life so far.


There are places I’ll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more
