World Class Rock A to Z, Day 12 2009:
Today’s blog will be very short. I am perplexed and I need your help. Last night while traveling through the WTTS library, I came across the song “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”. In contemplating spelling out Sgt., I realized that the song would fall right before “Second Hand News” from Fleetwood Mac. I have always spelled the word S-E-A-R-G-A-N-T. Apparently, that is not the correct spelling. In fact , it is listed in the dictionary as being spelled S-E-R-G-E-A-N-T. I even looked through google and found dozens of military officials who spelled it as I have my entire life. Why then, when asked (unprompted) did Todd Berryman and Brad Holtz spell it as I did? This is something we cannot figure out. I don’t think it is a coincidence that the three of us all misspelled the word the same way. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for listening and have the best night of your life.
