*************** THE BEATLES ****************
Permalink  
 


Goodness gracious me! I thought we had a thread for The Beatles, but it appears not!

What kind of castle is this??!!! yellowflowergrin

I have been a Beatlemaniac since I was a young teenager, not too fashionable at the time but hey, I can never get anywhere near as much oomph and joyfulness as I do from my seemingly endless voyage throught their songs. it never gets tired and there is nothing like it ( for me, still. )

I love their music from the beginning to the end, but i guess i lean towards post Rubber Soul if i had to choose a favourite period.

These are probably my fave two songs!

 

Across The Universe ( Let It Be )

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsuSCwTdxOo

 




Words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting thorough my open mind
Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which
dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box
they tumble blindly as
they make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life
are ringing through my open ears
exciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which
shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Jai guru deva
Jai guru deva

 

 

 

 

Because ( Abbey Road )

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkAyRNmxHVA

 

  

Because the world is round it turns me on
Because the world is round...aaaaaahhhhhh

Because the wind is high it blows my mind
Because the wind is high......aaaaaaaahhhh

Love is old, love is new
Love is all, love is you


Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue.......aaaaaaaahhhh

Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh....

 

 

and because Mcclunger's post reminded me of this today, another dose of unbeatlable awesomeness!

 

I am The Walrus ( Magical Myslery Tour )

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nnpil_pRUiw

 


I am he as you are he as you are me
and we are all together
See how they run like pigs from a gun
see how they fly
I'm crying
Sitting on a cornflake
Waiting for the van to come
Corporation T-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday
Man you've been a naughty boy
you let your face grow long

I am the eggman
they are the eggmen
I am the walrus
Goo goo g' joob

Mr. city policeman sitting
pretty little policemen in a row
See how they fly like Lucy in the sky
See how they run
I'm crying
I'm crying, I'm crying
Yellow matter custard
Dripping from a dead dog's eye
Crabalocker fishwife
Pornographic priestess
Boy, you've been a naughty girl
you let your knickers down

I am the eggman
They are the eggmen
I am the walrus
Goo goo g' joob

Sitting in an English garden
waiting for the sun
If the sun don't come you get a tan
from standing in the English rain

I am the eggman
They are the eggmen
I am the walrus
Goo goo g' joob

Expert, texpert choking smokers
don't you think the joker laughs at you
See how they smile like pigs in a sty
See how they snide
I'm crying
Semolina pilchard
climbing up the Eiffel tower
Elementary penguin singing Hare Krishna
Man, you should have seen them kicking
Edgar Allan Poe

I am the eggman
They are the eggmen
I am the walrus
Goo goo g' joob
Goo goo g' joob
Goo goo g' goo
goo goo g' joob goo
juba juba juba
juba juba juba
juba juba juba juba
juba juba

Odd we never started a Beatles thread, isn't it? We talked about it though. We did start a John Lennon thread awhile ago, here.

http://cagealotcastle.activeboard.com/t42769873/john-lennon/

I think there are other Beatles songs posted here and there too. Thanks Lula, really had a great time listening to these, especially seeing the Walrus video!

Here is a great video of 'Get Back' from their last live performance, on the Apple studios roof, wish I could have been there!!

My first English song was Yesterday, when i was a junior high school student.

It hits me all of a sudden I had a reason to listen to their music again! I'm proud that I was a Beatlemaniac at that time, as you can clearly see how much i love the words "maniac" "manic" from my name.
Thank you so much for posting these fantastic songs Ladies HUGGGGG

God bless you MORE!!!!

Whoop! glad everyone is enjoying!starry

'Yesterday' is a beautiful song indeed Tues! Lady G, the Across The Universe  video multiplies the power of the song by gazillions doesn't it! starsmile defies words. stars

Ah yes Lady T! Ia m glad we have a John Lennon thread too, I have tended to be more drawn ( still ) to the music of John Lennon in terms of the post Beatles stuff. thank you for posting the rooftop concert what an amazing moment, I mean I was not there obviously, not even born, but the footage is fab too! here is the whole concert, London had a gift that day! I love 'I've Got A Feeling' and 'Don't Let Me Down!'

and just for good measure, here is a rare studio version of Don't Let Me Down where John Lennon doesn't forget the lyrics!!

Another favourite from The Beatles..they were truly ahead of their time!

stars

Tomorrow Never Knows

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTMOSCh7aJU

The lyrics..oh yeahhhhhhh!!! starry


"Tomorrow Never Knows"

Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream
It is not dying, it is not dying

Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void
It is shining, it is shining

Yet you may see the meaning of within
It is being, it is being

Love is all and love is everyone
It is knowing, it is knowing

And ignorance and hate mourn the dead
It is believing, it is believing

But listen to the colour of your dreams
It is not leaving, it is not leaving

So play the game "Existence" to the end
Of the beginning, of the beginning
Of the beginning, of the beginning
Of the beginning, of the beginning
Of the beginning, of the beginning

With many artists I find this hard (as I'm sure it must be for you with the Beatles, Lula) but my favourite Beatles song is surely Day in the Life! That jangly guitar just hints at wistful sadness while the chorus refrain tumbles into a strange, affectionate manevolence almost! The whole thing sounds both spent and lively; like a trampolinist with a hang-over! Also, Ringo's sparse peculiar drumming is amazing and the lyrics mesmerizing and troubling and Gosh I Love It! Perfect, perfect song.

Day in the Life is wonderful, Sprocket.

This is one of my favourites, I couldn't pick one, I don't think. Revolver is a great album, though. But I do love Rubber Soul too.

A 'Day In A Life' is The Beatles at their best I agree Sprocket, such an intelligent song too. Not to mention that climactic part that has been mimicked numerous times since, including a  tiny little bit on The Sorcerer's Apprentice soundtrack, or at least in my mind, and to great effect I might add! wizard thank you for posting!

Here There and Everywhere is so beautiful, I love it too Lady T! starry

I guess you could say this is a George Harrison song, but it is on The Beatles'  'The White Album' so I thought I would post it here! Lyrics are awesome.

I listened to Revolver yesterday! Such a brilliant and peculiar album! It's so chilled-out and yet so nervy at the same time.
