Why does it get lost in the translation?

Today, I watched one of the finer movies of the 70's "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"...yes, starring one of my all-time favorites, the BeeGees. Ricky just did not get it. He thought that this was a movie made on drugs. Didn't get the whole fantasy thing. Did not appreciate the music. Did not appreciate all of the big name stars in the movie...George Burns, Steve Martin, Peter Frampton, Billy Preston, Alice Cooper, Earth Wind and Fire, and Aerosmith. What is the world coming to when the youth of today do not understand the abstract-ness of this genre?

"Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields, nothing is real, and nothing to get hung about, Strawberry Fields forever."
