octopus's garden

i once heard that the song "octopus' garden" came about in 1968 when Starr was on a boating trip in sardinia with his family. the captain of the boat told Starr about how octopuses spend their lives traveling along the underbelly of the sea collecting stones and shiny objects. Starr said that this was one of the happiest things he had ever heard, and soon after wrote a song about it. enjoy:

Hi Blanca - that was in TOTD a few years ago. It is very happy isn't it?
