Speaking of John Lennon....


A belated "Happy Birthday" tribute... this seen last week at the Imagine mosaic at Strawberry Fields (NYC).
Yes indeed,** "we all shine on"....**

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon you're gonna be dead
What in the world you thinking of
Laughing in the face of love
What on earth you tryin' to do
It's up to you, yeah you
Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna look you right in the face
Better get yourself together darlin'
Join the human race
How in the world you gonna see
Laughin' at fools like me
Who in the hell d'you think you are
A super star
Well, right you are
Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Ev'ryone come on
Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you off your feet
Better recognize your brothers
Ev'ryone you meet
Why in the world are we here
Surely not to live in pain and fear
Why on earth are you there
When you're ev'rywhere
Come and get your share
Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah we all shine on
Come on and on and on on on
Yeah yeah, alright, uh huh, ah
Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah we all shine on
On and on and on on and on
Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun

Not sure what # 12’s about (why it’s included as it is), but hey… A nice replication and time-line for Beatles/bass aficionados.

Beatles Bass Lines Over Time


PS… Same way as this got to me (allowing YouTube to play on its own), another related vid came up next, for Who/Entwistle fans:

Meanwhile....
This vid has been open on a browser tab here for months - I guess so good I didn't want to forget it. Seen it twice now. A really nice snapshot not only of Brian Wilson and Beatles/BeachBoys, but of the tipping points from vocal groups & doo-wop to folk rock, beach, and (r)evolutionary influences and sounds. Really good, 23:42 long.

Maybe I’m Amazed - Paul McCartney Interview with Stephen Colbert - Sept. 23, 2019





Sir Beatle Paul McCartney was interviewed for most of the hour-long show by Colbert, and it was among the most genuine and interesting interviews I’ve seen with McCartney, over the decades. A long-time Beatles’ fan’s ultimate interview, filling in a lot of interesting details, with this deft and awestruck interviewing by Colbert.

Just wonderful... “Must see” for Beatles-Wings-McCartney fans. I tried to find the complete interview in one cohesive chunk (not presented that way yet) or even divided up so they could be seen a segment at a time in order. Here’s the latter, yeah yeah yeah!!

Part 1 - Paul McCarney - Intro/Thoughts on all those covers of Beatles Songs, about early days, and his sense of how all those songs came out of him.

Part 2 - The Magic of Music, Colbert goes blank, and Elvis

Part 3 - “touches on the subject of loss, and in particular the way John Lennon's death has influenced his music and even his dreams, many decades later”. A look back on his life and Beatles experiences.

Part 4: On seeing “guitar god” Hendrix perform Sgt. Pepper days after its release, going out of tune, and Clapton hiding… Plus, his new “Hey Grandude” children’s book

Maybe I’m Amazed - Paul McCartney Interview with Stephen Colbert (9/24/2019)





Sir Beatle Paul McCartney was interviewed for most of the hour-long show by Colbert, and it was among the most genuine and interesting interviews I’ve seen with McCartney, over the decades. A long-time Beatles’ fan’s ultimate interview, filling in a lot of interesting details, with this deft and awestruck interviewing by Colbert.

McCartney talks about being a Beatle, about John (who he dreams of), about what it feels like to be himself (which is humbling and psychologically fascinating). He speaks of his talent with music writing with 'mindfulness', using a metaphor of computers - having been like a data collector from his father’s music influences and simply “processing” all he had in his head and out came the songs. Some came in his sleep (Yesterday).

Stories about the music, his life as a Beatle, what it felt like at that moment, being back in the Ed Sullivan theater (where the Beatles debuted to an American audience), or being interviewed now by Colbert. And being a grand-dude. Colbert was gob-smacked, clearly, in his reverence and awe. And Paul was Paul. Some humor and little bits of info not shared before. No spoiler alerts here! Watch!

Of course, being Colbert, a few references were made (just in passing) to a new McCartney song about a mad king destroying the planet (guess who? The one who wears a face kept in a jar by the door?)

Just wonderful... “Must see” for Beatles-Wings-McCartney fans. I tried to find the complete interview in one cohesive chunk (not presented that way yet) or even divided up so they could be seen a segment at a time in order. Here’s the latter, yeah yeah yeah!!

HAPPY 50th ANNIVERSARY!!
A half century (congrats to survivors!) - 1/2 century since the Beatles' iconic album photo was taken.

Beatles Anniversary - 50 Years since the iconic photo of Abbey Road was taken


Sorry it's a bit of an advert for new releases (Beatles 2019 are sure active in social media marketing!)

More on the activity today (as opposed to the album re-release): https://ultimateclassicrock.com/beatles-fans-abbey-road/

"You may notice the intro is slightly like Instant Karma"
- John Lennon, introducing this song as "son of 'What'd I Say'"

From Lennon's appearance as guest DJ at an FM Radio Station in NYC
[9/28/74] Spinning the singles which influenced him, classics of rock & roll.

Richie Barrett - Some Other Guy (1962)


Lennon called this "The first electric piano on record that I ever heard".

Beatles: Ticket to Ride

That's John Lennon's Rickenbacker Model # 325, used throughout The Beatles' 1964 and on A Hard Day's Night.
You can hear its sound right at the beginning of this iconic song:

One other Beatles favorite which I was reminded of after posting/re-listening to "If I Fell", This is the other song which springs to mind as having an indelible impact on me, with the simple but bone-touching vocal harmonies and a minor tones in the chords:

"Someday when we're dreaming
Deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
The things we said today"

Things We Said Today - Beatles

Watching (on PBS) the Beatles documentary, "Eight Days a Week" at the moment. Never saw it. Full of electricity & nostalgia.

This song, with its harmonies in minor key, and sultry plea, always sent goosebumps. Since day 1. Still does.

It was 20 years ago today, Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play....

Well, more like 52 years now. I've just come across this special-edition re-mix of Sgt. Pepper, digitally cleaned and with some isolation track bits thrown in, this being from the special 50-yr-anniversary CD released in 2017.

Song for the Day

Things We Said Today - Beatles


Released around the time G+ announced our demise. This is an official (HQ) version from the Beatles, "here to stay"
Timely.

LYRICS:
You say you will love me
If I have to go
You'll be thinking of me
Somehow I will know
Someday when I'm lonely
Wishing you weren't so far away
Then I will remember
The things we said today
You say you'll be mine, girl
'Til the end of time
These days such a kind girl
Seems so hard to find
Someday when we're dreaming
Deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
The things we said today
Me, I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is luck
And, though we may be blind
Love is here to stay
And that's enough
To make you mine, girl
Be the only one
Love me all the time, girl
We'll go on and on
Someday when we're dreaming
Deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today
Me, I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is luck
And, though we may be blind
Love is here to stay
And that's enough
To make you mine, girl
Be the only one
Love me all the time, girl
We'll go on and on
Someday when we're dreaming
Deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
The things we said today

#9 Music Spree


Another test, in a way, and a favorite legacy from G+ music sharing rifs.

Young Dr. Frankenstein here managed to reconstruct a G+ nicely on MeWe (without markdown for everything, but with instant thumbnail links. I don't have time or energy now to enter each link manually, but am going to try to transpose this music list with links to Pluspora and see what happens. Worst case: It's just a list with links to copy/paste. Anyway, this began with a post of an old narrow-gauge steam engine, #9. I offered up 9 related songs (to trains &/or #9), and ralphyboy offered another nine. (Sum = 18; take the digits #1 and #8, add, and guess what? Another 9. That's 3 nines now = 27. Add the digits 2 + 9. And?? It's raining #9's!!~~
10. REM: Driver 8 (er..9) (wait 22 seconds)
  • Berlin: Metro (ok, it's train-ish)
  • Black Foot: Train, Train (needs no explanation)
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival: Midnight Special
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T00eJSQimIk
  • Muddy Waters: All Aboard
  • The Monkees: Last Train to Clarksville (Beatles wannabees)
  • Tarheel Slim: Number 9 Train (Got both of them in this one!!)
  • Nick Cave: The Train Song (how long?)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PcAO1YBYt4
  • Nena: 99 Luftballoons (Wait!!... that's too many 9's)

And then came... the one after the 9 0 9.... ;)

Beatles (alternative take)
https://youtu.be/FSlJ7PM33e4
oops, another just popped into my head now - Cream: Train Time!!
https://youtu.be/S2yHBKKzwTQ
Well, all aboard!! (Now it's your "turn turn turn")
🎵 🎵

Enjoy!!
