Hello, I've discovered your site looking for an answer to the question, just what are the people speaking at the end of "I Am The Walrus" saying?

That is what led me to your site, why I want to stay is because I have loved The Beatles since childhood, which, for me, is the mid-sixties. I saw "Help" at one of our local movie theaters, I listened to any radio station that had the Beatles in heavy rotation. (I live in The States) The Beatles are not "just a musical group" any more than Beethoven is "just a composer" And I love Beethoven.

I don't know how typical this is for other Beatles fans on this site, but going into adolescence, in the dismal 70's, (emphasis on dismal)  I really connected with "John Lennon Plastic Ono Band," "Imagine",  "All Things Must Pass" and"Living In The Material World"  I also really connected with The Who's "Quadrophenia" for pretty much the same reason that Lennon's "Working Class Hero" became an anthem for me in 1973. Living in an area dominated by heavy industry, and seeing it all turn to s**t nearly overnight, knowing, KNOWING, there was NO future, unless I got the hell out of there...

 Through it all, I've never lost my love for The Beatles. I listen to them constantly. The only other musicians I pay that sort of "homage" to are Peter Gabriel and Afro Celt Sound System.

 

Watch out now, take care, beware of thoughts that linger, winding up inside your head, the hopelessness around you, in the dead of night, beware of sadness, it can hit you, it can hurt you, make you sore, and what is more, that is not what you are here for.

Welcome, Passchendaele. Glad you tripped across the site and decided to join us in conversation. Your rich Beatles history will be valuable to us. I'm 45 and just discovered The Beatles this year. I hope to be learning a lot from you in the times ahead.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Welcome to the forum, Passchendaele.

It's a friendly place with people of all ages, and I hope you'll enjoy your time here. I look forward to your contributions.

I hope you have already found the information on I Am The Walrus you were looking for. If not, there is a transcription at the bottom of this page:

Welcome to the forum and thanks for sharing your story.

I'm always looking for good music, as others here are, and if you have suggestions to offer for Peter Gabriel or Afro Celt Sound System, feel free to post them in one of the other All Together Now threads.

Thank you for that. It takes a bit of "getting used to" new sites for us...ahem...older users. I shant bore you with tales of mis-threaded posts that caused me to go, "Ah, for the love of....another fine site I'm too embarrassed to go back to." I am especially thankful for threads dedicated to sharing our enormously varied musical journeys. I love discovering new music, especially "world" music, and there are so few people who, or so it seems to me, have any interest at all in going beyond their musical "ghettos".  

There are some musical genres that I wouldn't listen to unless I was paid to do so, but that is just me and my personal thing, I won't run them down, those musicians are getting paid to play the music they love, POWER TO E'M! Any musician who can make a living playing their music is living a charmed life. God bless e'm all.

 

Watch out now, take care, beware of thoughts that linger, winding up inside your head, the hopelessness around you, in the dead of night, beware of sadness, it can hit you, it can hurt you, make you sore, and what is more, that is not what you are here for.
