Tom Roger talks about "Like til mi dør"

Like til mi dør (Straight to My Door)

Among my dearest belongings in my adolescent days were two cassettes with The Beatles: 1962-66 and 1967-70. On the 1967-70 cassette, the tape was partly crumbled, so it was years before I eventually heard the ending of Strawberry Fields Forever. The masterpieces were probably on the 1967-70 tape, but the pop songs on 1962-66 were great. From Me to You. Help. Nowhere Man.

Every time I manage to write a decent pop song, I think of The Beatles and the 1962-66 tape.
