The Beatles - Sgt Pepper - This Week in Music
The Beatles – Sgt Pepper

In 1967, The Beatles possibly released the greatest masterpiece of their careers. Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was released in America and was definitely more experimental than any of their previous releases.  

If you haven’t heard this album before, I highly recommend just lying down in a dark room and letting this album play start to finish.

You’re welcome.

It was on this date in 1987 where the BBC banned the George Michael’s song, I Want Your Sex.

This is just one of many songs that the BBC has banned over the years due to various reasons.

This song was deemed too sexually suggestive. Not exactly sure where they got that idea…
