Day 68 - You've Got to Hide Your Love Away by The Beatles
This is a song that John Lennon (primarily, Paul also has a writing credit on this song) wrote during what he described as his "Dylan" phase. It is rumored that this song might have been about an affair. The other rumor was that this song was written for/about Brian Epstein, the Beatles enigmatic manager who may or may not have had feelings for John. I sometimes picture the latter to be true. I think of how sad and difficult working with The Beatles must have been for Brian Epstein. The world still has a long way to go before there is equality for the gay community. How would Brian Epstein's life have been different if he wasn't forced to hide his love away?
