Rubber Soul [UK] (1965)

"Drive My Car" Bob Dylan and marijuana: Meet the Beatles!!! Now, granted, it's arguable that much of any such encounters were lost on Paul "Michelle" McCartney, as opposed to John "Nowhere Man" Lennon. (On the other hand, don't forget which one of them it was who more often did not leave home without it. Shout-out to Merle Haggard and Ray Charles while I'm at it.) But there's not much point going down that road even if, on the cover, Ringo didn't seem to know what he was doing there. The "Run for Your Life," "Girl" Lennon is still plainly in evidence as well. Furthermore, I happen to think "Michelle" is a very fine song.
