Helter Skelter

My favorite parts of the Paul McCartney concert in Piedmont Park last night were the old songs — from his time with the Beatles, and even Wings. The rest of the 50,000 plus crowd seemed to agree. They were almost quiet during the many new numbers he played, mostly during the first hour of the concert.

But perhaps they were just subdued by the pouring rain.

I was pleased that Sir Paul played Helter Skelter. It reminded me of an interesting fact I learned during a recent UK visit. “Helter Skelter” means more a state of chaos, or the Beatles’ song — it also refers to a spiral slide.

That makes the song seem much more innocent — despite its eerie history.

Our 2 year old had a grand time playing on the slide pictured at the local Notcutts garden store.

Who knew?
