The Beatles Thread

Unsling your guitar, pull up a chair, and strum us a chord or two. Come on in to discuss music.

Yep, and it was pointed out that Her Majesty was originally placed after Mean Mr. Mustard and before Polythene Pam, but Paul later thought it didn't work there on the Abbey Road album so it was deleted there. You can hear the last chord of Mustard at the beginning, and it stops abruptly before Pam.

Sorry about the double post. But this will make up for it. Paul's bass on this song is superb:

I Want You (She's so Heavy)

Well, it's in Beatles Anthology where they describe it. It's one of the accuarate Wikipedia entries on the song.

Def superb.

Pauls bass helped make The Beatles what they remain. His bass was more than mere thump for me. His bass lines remain musical creativty. Sounds within sounds.

By the way...great share. Listening to it now.

Very cool. :)

Thanks to CR I am going to Strawberry Fields...

Let me take you down

Cause I'm going to

Strawberry Fields

Nothing is real

And nothing to get hung about

Strawberry Fields forever

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see

It's getting hard to be someone
But it all works out

It doesn't matter much to me

Let me take you down

Cause I'm going to

Strawberry Fields

Nothing is real

And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

No one
I think is in my tree
I mean it must be high or low

That is you can't, you know, tune in
But it's all right

That is I think it's not too bad

Let me take you down
Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

Always, no sometimes, think it's me
But you know I know when it's a dream
I think I know I mean
a yes
But it's all wrong
That is I think I disagree

Let me take you down
Cause I'm going to

Strawberry Fields

Nothing is real

And nothing to get hung about

Strawberry Fields forever
Strawberry Fields forever
Strawberry Fields forever


Thanks CR for reminding me of this awesome tune.

Great stereo at the end.

I buried Paul. :lol:

Miss him. Miss him. Miss him.

Chief Meanie: Are the troops in readiness?
Max: No, Your Blueness.
Chief Meanie: The bonkers?
Max: Nope.
Chief Meanie: Clowns?
Max: No.
Chief Meanie: Snapping Turks?
Max: No.
Chief Meanie: Anti-music missiles?
Max: No.
Chief Meanie: The dreadful flying glove?
Max: No!
Chief Meanie: Splendid! Today... Pepperland goes blue-y...!


I shall utterly soothe my anguish wiiiiiiith, A VIEWING!

The preceding is 101% faux fanboy anguish and 3% horror. :)

Gee whiz, I was pleasantly surprised by my latest acquisition!

It's in a cardboard box sleeve, and the disk is in a cardboard "book", with the disk in its usual right-hand place.

On the left is a pocket containing goodies!

An18-page pamphlet with pix and more goodies. Transparent cels of each Beatle.

Stickers!

An ad for a YS picture book, which quite frankly, looks interesting, say what and on the reverse of same ad paper, the Cirque du Soleil Beatle performance.

Featurette "Mod Odyssey" that I've not seen yet, storyboard sequences that weren't used, and voice actor interviews.

Yum :!:

Maybe they could move the stuff to Liverpool. Rose said that there is a large museum there that seems to be doing well.

The Beatles used to be my favourite band when I was younger, but I still really like them now, although my primary music tastes have changed dramatically since then. :)

Some of my favourite songs by them include, "Yellow Submarine," "Help" and "Birthday." :D Oh and "In My Life."

Merriadoc, I don't think that Queen was underrated, just not as popular as The Beatles were in their time. Freddie Mercury was a real talent, no doubt and he IS missed. LOVE QUEEN.

But love my Beatles the mostest!!

Speaking of...

Sir Paul McCartney is 70 years old today. Phew. Hard to believe it has been so long. Happy Birthday Paul, may you rock on. I guess he will as he is closing the 2012 Olympics!!

Birthday

Queen is one of favorite bands and I definitely do not underrate them. They are within my top 20 favorite bands...possibly in my top 10 if I really took the time to rate my favorites..and that is saying much from my perspective because I like many bands.

I do see where you are coming from. One of my very favorite bands is Jethro Tull but I do not know many people who feel the same way about them as I do. It is way cool for me when I do meet them and share my joy of them.

Oh yes, Happy Birthday to Paul. Cool he is still with us on this third rock from the sun.

Way back in June 2003, in this very thread, I posted regarding how I hoped that one day, in the not too distant future, they would re-master and re-issue Magical Mystery Tour on DVD. Now that day, 9 years later, is almost here. In early October, the 8th or 9th I believe, Apple will re-issue MMT on Blu-Ray and standard DVD. Alos, in late September it will be re-released for a limited engagement in selcted movie theaters. There will be recent interviews with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as outtakes and deleted scenes.

It's exciting news. With today's technology,, and the care and expense that are customary put into remastering Beatles works, I really have high hopes
for MMT.

guaranteed to make you feel old, the half-century mark

http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/musicbl ... intcmp=239

.
.
It wasn't always certain that Love Me Do would be the first single, anyway. Producers were all-powerful then, and George Martin had a ready-made pop tune for the group to record: Mitch Murray's How Do You Do It?. After a quick and competently unenthusiastic run-through, the Beatles balked, insisting on recording their own material. Martin eventually went with Love Me Do, and gave How Do You Do It? to Gerry and the Pacemakers, who took it to No 1 in April 1963.

The difference between the two songs shows just how anomalous Love Me Do was in autumn 1962. How Do You Do It? is charming, catchy but just too pat: the ebbs and flows of teen romance are captured in lyrics that err on the side of cloying. The melody boxes the group in, and they are reduced to sounding collectively cute – not a happy aural experience nor a true reflection of their characters. Murray was born the same year as Lennon and Starr, but might as well as have been on a different planet.

In contrast, Love Me Do is, once you get past the primitivism, is soulful and bluesy. There is a swing and drive to the harmonica playing and the harmonies that belie the impression of tentativeness. The lyric, while entirely within period romantic cliches, is both slightly awkward – "love me do": who ever says that when they're chatting someone up? – and direct ("someone like you"). Which makes it a pretty faithful expression of teen courting rituals, with their mixture of uncertainty and desire.

As the first Beatles' hit, this unassuming but forceful record has had a long after-life. The second version was included on several best-selling UK EPs and LPs and went Top 5 when rereleased in 1982 as a single. Right at the end of the first flush of Beatlemania, in late May 1964, it hit No 1 in the US – a strange turn of events for an 18-month old song. This in turn ensured its place as the opening track on the 1 album, which has sold over 31 million copies during this century.


And a commenter at the link added this link with a half-century ago video reminisce of the Fab 4

Some bits found while TORC was remaking itself

http://digbysblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/ ... -film.html

The video at the bottom of the site, IMHO the only way to listen to it is the volume dialed up to 11 and then a bit more

In the Summer of ’67, I discovered two things that changed my life. As much as I would like to be able to tell you that it was body painting, and sex on acid…I can’t. Mainly because I had only recently turned 11. The first thing I discovered was Mad Magazine (which undoubtedly explains a lot, to long-time readers). The second thing was record collecting. I still remember my very first vinyl purchase, blowing at least three months’ worth of allowance at the JCPenney in Fairbanks, Alaska. I purchased two LPs (at the whopping price of $3.98 each), and one 45 single. The LPs were Revolver and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and the 45 was “Penny Lane”/”Strawberry Fields Forever”…all by that band that, you know… Paul McCartney used to be in before Wings.

Flash-forward about 35 years or so. I was enjoying my first visit to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. At the Beatles exhibit, I happened upon a glass case that contained some weathered pieces of paper with scribbles. I lingered over one in particular, which was initially tough to decipher, with all the crossed-out words and such:


Go see the pic and vid, you know you want to.

From the link...

“But you know I know when it’s a bean”? Huh? It still wasn’t really registering as to what I was looking at (the mind plays funny tricks sometimes). However, when I got to: “I think I know I mean-er-yes, but it’s all wrong. That is I think I disagree” I realized, Oh.My.(Rock) God. This is John Lennon’s original handwritten draft of “Strawberry Fields Forever”.


Thanks for the link b. Good for me to see.

I, too, fondly remember the influence of George.

I remain..influenced...in a very good way and I thank George.
