With a Little Help from My Friends

If you were high up in society in the 60s and 70s chances are you made great friends with the celebrities around you. I love seeing the celebrities of the time interacting with their famous friends. It sorta says; "Yeah I'm a famous but I have my friends and enemies like everyone else." It shows their relaxed natural side. Some friends were always seen at their side. Other stuck by them no matter what. They looked glamorous and caring with each other. The famous friends understood what the other was going through. Scheduling conflicts, scandals, rumors, and more. It was just part of their daily lives. They helped each other through it and provided a safe haven sometimes. So to quote The Beatles, "Oh I get by with a little help from my friends."

What would you think if I sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me.
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song,
And I'll try not to sing out of key.
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends,
Mmm,I get high with a little help from my friends,
Mmm, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends.
