Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the Peanut Gang are legends of the cartoon world. Schulz was a friggin' genius.

It's Only Love is one of your favourites? How come? I mean it's a decent enough song, if you ignore parts of the lyrics, but what makes it so special to you? - if you don't mind me asking.

Apologies Emily, i did post a reply to this but it must have been of the ones that got swallowed up when the forum was played up.

I love the [weak] lyrics (right, fight, night, sight, bright, bright) and how John laughs whilst he sings the second "very bright", aware the lyrics are substandard. The melody and tune are fastastic. Plus its a side of John you don't often get to hear about, a vulnerable side; normally its him being this macho guy - and maybe that's how he was inside with girls he liked, maybe with Cynthia. And its not a simple i love you yippee song, there is more to it. Maybe this is Johns equivalent to Paul's Every Little Thing, but probably not (in my head they are heavily connected because of the next sentence coming up in this post). 

And possibly because i grew up listening to Love Songs on vinyl which i loved, particularly side 3; It's Only Love/You're Going To Lose That That Girl/Every Little Thing back-to-back blew me away, was always picking those out when i had a spare 10 minutes.

Leave My Kitten Alone."

Yeah. Great shout.apple01

 

I like it because it moves away from the Girll-ground songs of he loves yeay or he left me boo-hoo. You also have Leader of the Pack where the Shangri-La's Leader of the Pack where the death of the boyfriend is the theme of the song and off you go, and away from the Girl-groups you have Ricky Nelson's Tell Laura I Love Her, another great song. Must be others out there. 

And a whole lot nicer themed than Run For Your Life where the boyfriend is threatening the girl for going off (love the song tho).a-hard-days-night-john-5 

I think John actually admitted years later that he hated that "Run For Your Life" was on Rubber Soul because the song's alluding to violence stuck out like a sore thumb compared to the rest of the album's peace-themed songwriting.

This is the same 'peace-themed' album that has Norwegian Wood where the singer sets fire to the girl's furniture?

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.

Ha ha - the tune is certainly enough to throw the listener off-track isn't it?  For years I assumed he just started a fire in the fireplace to warm himself up (being in Norway and all :)   ).

I got all indignant the first time I heard that the fire wasn't just in the fireplace...and about all the other stuff the song is supposed to be about. I had it worked out all different in my mind. I think I'm sticking with parlance on this one. I'll just go on letting the song be what I make of it. I'm staying in my bubble on this one.a-hard-days-night-paul-11
