Quick, name that tune! (hint: it mentions potholes)

The song is "A Day In The Life" by the Beatles, which was partly inspired
by this newspaper tidbit and ends with

I read the news today oh boy 
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire 
And though the holes were rather small 
They had to count them all 
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall. 
I'd love to turn you on.

NDLR: to learn about the unrelated company started by Jim Blackburn, 
nowadays a well-known maker of bike lights, pumps, water bottle cages,
and especially pannier racks, click here or here.

Anyway, I read the news today, oh boy. Town Topics has declared 2014
to have been Year of The BicycleScroll down around half-way to read
their synopsis. Town Topics and I are out of sync vis-a-vis word usage,
it should say "synchrony". But kudos to PBAC for an action-packed year.
