The Yankees are now 1 game from clinching a spot in the post season.

In honor of that, I'm going to list a few tracks from the Beatles album 'The Beatles 1', as they relate to the Yankees.

A few things about this album:

It was realized in November of 2000. Just after the Yankees finished winning the World Series...

How many songs are on this album? 27.

What championship are the Yankees winning this year? #27.

1. Love Me Do
There's a lyric in this song that goes "Ill always be true", so this is dedicated to all the fans who didn't jump of the wagon in April and May

2. From Me to You
"If there's anything I can do, just call on me".. Does this remind anyone else of Rivera?

3. Can't Buy Me Love
This ones dedicated to the rookies who have stepped up and outplayed the high-priced players on the Yankees.. Carl Pavano anyone?

4. A Hard Days Night
There's a lyric in this song that goes "When I'm home, everything seems to be right".. And that's the truth for the Yankees, who are 52-29 at home this season. The second most wins at home by any team in the league.

5. Help!
"I need somebody, Help! Not just anybody".. This reminded me of Roger Clemens.. Before he signed, the Yankees pitching staff really needed help, and Clemens was the person most Yankee fans wanted to see.

6. Yesterday
Looking back to the beginning of the season, we saw a season that looked lost, but now we're fighting for the best record in the league.

7. Hello Goodbye
Hello there Carl Pavano! What? You're hurt again? Ok, goodbye...

8. Let it Be
This is dedicated to Brian Cashman, who for the most part left the Yankee team in tact this season. He could have dismantled it before the trade deadline, traded away prospects for aging players like in years past.. He could have sent Ian Kennedy and Melky to Texas for Gagne.. Instead, he let things stand, and after the all star break the Yankees took off.

9. The Long and Winding Road
This ones pretty easy right? If this doesn't describe this season, I don't know what does. Twists and turns, ups and downs, valleys, peaks, etc.. It's been a strange journey for Yankee fans, but I know this is a season I won't soon forget..

If anyone can think of any other songs that relate, feel free to comment!

That's beautiful, D!

Hello, Goodbye Pavano ;-)

I am a Beatlemaniac, in addition to a Yankeemaniac.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Okay, here's one for all the contracts that are up: Mo, Posada, A-Rod especially:

"P.S. IOU"
Well, close is good enough, eh?

Haha that ones works too.

Glad you liked this blog entry!
I tried to do all 27 songs on that album, but I drew blanks on some of them..

I really do love that there's 27 songs on the album.

You always love the team cause they're the Yankees, but there's just something about THIS TEAM.

Here's one for Kei Igawa [late of Flying Monkey fame from the Wiz]:

"Everybody's got something to hide, except for me and my monkey..." Wasn't that off the White Album?
