The Beatles - Don’t Let Me Down
Written as a love song for his second wife, Yoko Ono, “Don’t Let Me Down” was recorded during the Let It Be sessions, but was released as the b-side to “Get Back.” According to Paul McCartney, the Beatles started recording the song in the basement for Let It Be, and later performed it on their famous rooftop concert at Apple Studios.
"It was a very tense period: John was with Yoko and had escalated to heroin and all the accompanying paranoias and he was putting himself out on a limb. I think that as much as it excited and amused him, and the same time it secretly terrified him. So Don’t Let Me Down was a genuine plea… It was saying to Yoko, ‘I’m really stepping out of line on this one. I’m really letting my vulnerability be seen, so you must not let me down.’ I think it was a genuine cry for help. It was a good song." - Paul McCartney
August 24th, 1964 (Bel Air, Los Angeles): Paul describes the first time he saw John and The Quarrymen.
PAUL: I went to a village fete with Ivan [Vaughan], and the group that was on the fete, one of them – or a few of them, rather – were friends of Ivan’s, and that was John and a couple of his mates. And they were in a little group then, playing—
JOHN: Rather a large group, Paul, there were about fourteen of us, I think. [laughs]
PAUL: [laughs] Well, little in – stature, shall we say.
JOHN: [posh accent] Little in name, I’d say, Paul, but rather—
PAUL: Large! Large by number.
JOHN: [posh accent] Yes, large by number. We had banjos, and things like that…
PAUL: Wash-boards, skiffle boots… [laughs] The whole lot.

can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal
Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode?
It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.
Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.
Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.
Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.
Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.
The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.
The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.
