On This Day In Music History...

June 18, 1942: Sir James Paul McCartney was born!

Let's just all take a moment and think about a life without The Beatles... Okay stop, that's enough. How thankful am I for The Beatles? I'm pretty sure everyone in the entire world knows at least three Beatles songs without ever even purposely listening to them. John, Paul, Ringo and George are literally everywhere (remember that Simpsons episode with Paul and Linda McCartney? "In fact, if you play 'Maybe I'm Amazed' backwards, you'll hear a recipe for a really rippin' lentil soup!") and no one seems to mind — they're just so freakin' universal!

Happy Birthday, Paul!
