New Music: The Beatles' "With a Little Help From My Friends"

(Lennon/McCartney; arr. Brent Scheihagen)

Originally performed by the Beatles

This month's song was recorded as a "Thank You" for my friends and family; it was my birthday recently and I felt very fortunate to receive so much kindness from so many. The timing was also appropriate as an exhibition about the Beatles was coming to a close here in Taipei. My wife and a few friends attended the exhibition in its last weekend and, afterward, were joined my more friends and family for a birthday lunch. The weather was gorgeous, bright and clear after many a frigid, wet and gloomy day during the passing winter.  I really feel very fortunate to have the life that I do and I know that much of it is due to having so many good people around me. Let this song be my wish that you are  also surrounded by friends and loved ones. So, this one's for you!
