The Beatles Necktie - My Favorite Tie Today

The Beatles White Album Tie
My favorite Beatles tie is The White Album Tie partly because my favorite Beatles Song is Revolution.  

Revolution was written by John Lennon in 1968 in two versions; a hard rock version which was released on the B side of the single Hey Jude, and as a slower blues version titled Revolution 1.  The slower version of Revolution was released on the Double Album - commonly known as The White Album.  A third version  Revolution 9 was also included on the White Album.

The single jacket for
Hey Jude - Revolution 
Inspired by the Vietnam War political protests which apparently Lennon saw with some doubt as expressed in his lyrics, "But when you talk about destruction, Don't you know that you can count me out."  A Revolution video was broadcast by the BBC on Sept.19 1968 - about a month later on Oct.13 Revolution was broadcast on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.

The Beatles Revolution
You say you want a revolution
Well, you know We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be all right?
All right, all right
You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're all doing what we can
But if you want money
For people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be all right?
All right, all right
You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know it's gonna be all right?
All right, all right!
All right, all right, all right!
All right, all right, all right!
All right, all right!
