"Doctor Robert" by The Beatles.

OK, more Fabness: This 1966 Lennon tune from "Yesterday And Today" was his FIRST composition in no uncertain terms about drugs. Theories abound as to the inspiration for the title from a British dentist to an art dealer to an NYC physician to Bob Dylan. Eventually John was quoted as saying: "...was another of mine. Mainly about drugs and pills. It was about myself: I was the one that carried all the pills on tour and always have done. Well, in the early days. Later on the roadies did it, and we just kept them in our pockets loose, in case of trouble."

Yesterday's answer: "Beach Baby" by The First Class. Extra credit: "Tossing and Turning". A little bubblegummy but I always liked "Beach Baby".
