Nah, this was like a year before Love was released.
I remember what album art looked like though, so I had a look around. Pretty sure it was this this album. The track order also seems right.
So yeah, I guess I just had a dodgy copy? Or maybe there was a release of imperfect copies in Australia and the both the radio station and I ended up with one.
So when I was in year 6, there was this kid in my class who knew I loved The Beatles and offered to burn a copy of this album he had. Naturally, I accepted. I got a lot of entertainment out of that album (I forget which, now. It’s probably still sitting in a CD wallet somewhere, though).
The thing, though, is that the version of Hello, Goodbye that was on that CD was kinda fucky, and it had all these skips in it. I hadn’t heard the song before that CD, so I wondered if that was how it was supposed to be. Eventually a got a non-skippy copy of the song, which was cool and kind of relieving. You know, to finally hear it properly.
But then, a year or two ago (so like 7 or 8 years later), while in a supermarket, Hello, Goodbye came on the radio. I was like, oh yeah, cool, great song. Wait, holy fuck, what, it has the exact same skips as that one version I have. What the fuck.
'Cause I'd heard it like a thousand times so the skips were ingrained in my memory, unmistakeable. I have no idea what the deal was with that.
