|Apr-17-12|| ||MarkFinan: Hi there <Travis Bickle> :)..|
We've actually spoke before, i was telling you about a night out i had in Liverpool last year at the Cavern, i'm not sure if you remember?
Anyway you have an excellent taste in music, but i have to disagree about Macca's "Silly love songs"! How can Bruce 'Most people only know me because i was born in the USA' Springsteen, possibly say anything about a McCartney song???
I think Macca should have just written him a song on the spot (Like he once did for Dustin Hoffman) telling him to shut up!
Paul was/is a Beatle, what can anyone say about that?
And Wings were the best selling group of the 70's too, so i can forgive him for a few bad songs.. Even Lennon wrote some crap, and he's the only man i Idolise...
|Apr-17-12|| ||Travis Bickle: <harrylime> Hi Harry! Sorry for deleting your music. I don't usually do that. I was being a bastard that day. Everybody has an opinion. That was my idea for this Forum to be a melting pot of different musical ideas. Welcome back mate!|
|Apr-17-12|| ||Travis Bickle: <MarkFinan> Hi Mark! Yes I remember you talking about The Beatles Tribute band. I must admit Paul was always my favorite Beatle and I used to listen to Silly Love songs lol when it was new. But after the years to me it was a song that Lennon would have told Paul to shelve. Lennon made some bad post Beatles records also as you mentioned. That's what was so great about The Beatles they knew what was good and what wasn't. McCartney said that when he & John were working on a new idea for a song they didn't write it down and if they couldn't remember it the next session they figured it wasn't any good anyway. |
The Beatles didn't write together like in the early days but they did help each other when the other got stuck with a song. For Instance Lennon couldn't get the middle eight for A Day In The Life. Meanwhile McCartney had an unfinished song that he thought would work as the middle eight so they tried it and it was magic! Also according to Geoff Emorick The Beatles Engineer it was 'Hey Bull Dog' that Lennon & McCartney and all The Beatles for that matter worked on together like the old days.
Whats amzing to me is that half of the time on 'Abbey Road' near the split up of the band is that all 4 Beatles were there at the same time. But like George Martin said, "they managed to pull it off". To me Abbey Road is a masterpiece, and what's little known is that album was recorded on a new and different recording council that had a lighter sound that any other Beatles record. It still came out sounding great as always!!
P.S. To clarify 1 thing, Paul & Linda McCartney were visiting Dustin Hoffman and his wife and Dustin talking to Paul suggested an idea for a song. Dustin remarked that a song about Pablo Picasso would make a great song, and right then & there macca started composing it. Hoffman was amazed how easily Paul could compose! It wasn't a heated exchange but an enjoyable moment.
Thanks for stopping by. ; P

|Apr-17-12|| ||Travis Bickle: Drink To Me - Paul McCartney & Wings
|Apr-17-12|| ||Travis Bickle: Yo HarryFab open yer Forum mate! I had a couple of neat post Beatle songs for ya where both John and Paul pay tribute to one another!|
|Apr-18-12|| ||chancho: Uptown Funk Empire - Boogie
|Apr-18-12|| ||MarkFinan: <Travis> I should have clarified mate.. Paul didn't write 'Picasso's last words', in a heated exchange with Dustin Hoffman, i just meant he should have done a song on the spot in a similar fashion for Springsteen to prove how easy it comes to him.. Not that he needs to prove anything to *Anybody*, any other songwriter, especially Bruce Springsteen!|
And the only song I personally can think of where Lennon or McCartney pay tribute to the other is Macca's "Here Today" from the Tug of war album (I love that album) but you do know your Beatle's so I'm probably wrong lol..
I actually love the rocky sound of Lennon's "How do you sleep", which is so obviously aimed at Macca, I just dont like that it was aimed at Macca!!
Lennon and Macca did actually get back in the studio once, I think it was in LA mid 70's, and Lennon said they were just jamming, and there were a few other famous musicians in there, and he said that after 10 mins they noticed everyone else had just stopped, and were just watching them two lol..
In the same Interview he stops just short of saying he regretted "How do you sleep", and just says "We're friends now, and lifes too short for regrets!" too true...
And apart from the compilation albums, Abbey rd is the only one i have on CD! I have all The Beatles, Wings, lennon, and even 2 Ringo albums on vinyl though... Apart from the White Album!
There is some brilliant songs on there, but for the most part they all sound like nursery rhymes to me?? I'm the only Beatles nut I know who doesn't really care for that album....
|Apr-18-12|| ||Travis Bickle: <MarkFinan> Mark actually 'How Do Sleep?' by Lennon was a response to McCartney for Pauls 'Too Many People' song dissing The Lennons, with lines like the intro, "Piece of cake", (referring to The Ballad Of John & Yoko, "eating chocolate cake in the van"...) Paul also has some nasty words for John in the song, "You took your lucky break, (The Beatles), and broke in two now what can be done for you. Also the, "too many hungry people losing weight", referring to the macrame diet Yoko put John on. And finally Macca jabs Lennon about his political activism in the song with, "too many people preaching practices don't let 'em tell you what you want to be"!|
Too Many People - Paul McCartney
|Apr-18-12|| ||Travis Bickle: <MarkFinan> Here's a great clip on How Do Sleep?|
Here's How Do You Sleep? in it's entirety. Notice at the beginning of the song it sounds like the orchestra tuning up for the beginning of Sgt Pepper. lol
|Apr-18-12|| ||Travis Bickle: <MarkFinan> Here is Paul Mac's tribute to John. Notice how the style & sound of the song has the Plastic Ono band sound. Also notice ar 4:27 into the song Paul try's to do a Lennon impersonation with his voice.|
Let Me Roll It - Paul McCartney
Here is Lennon's Tribute song to Paul. Notice Lennon uses Paul's 'I've Got A Feeling' riff throughout the song & mentions Paul's songs 'Yesterday' and 'It's Getting Better' in the lyrics. Also at the end of the tune Lennon sings "no more crying", (referring to a time when Lennon was having a bad acid trip, & Paul dropped LSD for the 1st time to help John through it. It was reported that Lennon and McCartney sat on the floor for hours staring into each others eyes and kept saying "I Know Man I Know" amidst tears.
I Know (I Know)
|Apr-18-12|| ||Travis Bickle: Here's a humorous song George Harrison wrote about his good friend Eric Clapton. Eric had a craving for sweets but he had bad teeth. So mischievious Harrison writes about all kinds of sugary snacks plus he writes the line, "but you'll have to have them all pulled out after the Savoy Truffle."|
|Apr-18-12|| ||MarkFinan: Wow!!! Well you certainly know your Beatles Travis, I'll give you that...
"Let me roll it", is really Lennonesque in style, and iv'e never really listened to that song before!
And "I Know" is quite touching considering the subject, it really does sound like he finally came round to Pauls point of view, the lyrics are moving.. But thats what Lennon's music has always done for me, ever since i was a little lad!|
And the jabs Paul gave John certainly didn't warrant lines like "The only thing you did was 'Yesterday', and since you've gone your just 'Another day', how do you sleep at nights?"... And lets face it, they're the nicest lines in the whole song lol...
I think that clips from the Imagine documentary, George plays lead, and they sit round the dinner table discussing how well "Beatle Ed!" is doing in er, Sweden haha..
The most moving tribute though is Pauls "Here Today", in my opinion? "We didn't understand a thing, but we could always sing".. Too right they could!
He recorded it around 6 months after John got killed, and you can tell he really did have things he wished he'd told him...
The Beatles affected so many people, from all different walks of life, and Lennon/McCartney will always be remembered as the greatest songwriters of all time :)
