Coincidence: Maxwell Silver Hammer

I was listening to Abbey Road while walking in Stockholm my second day in the city. I’d noticed by then a popular burger chain named “Max.” I observed such a restaurant across the way. I said the word out loud. “Max.” Just then, the lyric “She tells Max to stay…” is played.

In general, I give coincidences involving the Beatles a lower score unless extraordinary match, because of their outsized role in culture, and my propensity to listen to them, via radio, playlists, or album pick.

This day’s coincidence was fated to be, it seems, once I downloaded Abbey Road (one of 4 album downloads I made before my Swedish trip to assure I had some listens) and walked about a city where a popular burger chain is titled “Max.”
