REREADING BOB DYLAN’S ‘Chronicles (volume one)’ after 25+ years, I noticed this comment about the Beatles:

…The radio was on from beyond a wall and the sound was coming through in static. The Beatles were singing, "Do You Want to Know a Secret." They were so easy to accept, so solid. I remembered when they first came out. They offered intimacy and companionship like no other group. Their songs would create an empire. It seemed like a long time ago.

"Do You Want to Know a Secret." A perfect '50s sappy love ballad and nobody but them could do it. Somehow there was nothing wussy about it…
