Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

Surely "Long Long Long" is a totally different song from "Helter Skelter"? They were both on the White Album, but Long Long Long is a relatively quiet song by George. Helter Skelter is a belting rocker by Paul.

My iTunes calls the song "Long, Long, Long," but maybe there was a glitch with the download -- the curse of dial-up Internet. For example, some of my Aerosmith tunes are supposedly 3400-plus minutes long. I would pity the eardrums of anyone who had to listen to Aerosmith for that long.
