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.

Not to worry.

Oh so the lyrics actually enhance the song for you? I find that quite interesting. I'm always curious as to what makes other fans like certain songs/albums...

 

It's very sad to hear the number of deaths has gone up. I suppose all we can do is hope the people involved can find a way to get through this together.

 

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

High, by, my, sigh, fly, butterfly[ies], shy - you just know John was sitting there thinking of just anything that would rhyme. Maybe he had others like tie, cry, fry, lie which were rejected. It always fascinates me that he truly detested the song.

 

Let's just hope that 8 is the total and there are no more, a few people are still in a serious but stable condition in hospital. Like most communities, towns, cities etc Glaswegians will pull together and get people thru this. There is an amazing human spirit which manifests when disaster and tragedy strikes.

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

 

LOL. I still refuse to acknowledge that version of events. Lalalalala.

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 :)   ).

 

Don't worry! You're not the only one who thought soa-hard-days-night-george-10 I was kind of surprised when I read what it really was about, back then. I guess I'm too innocent (ghehehe) but it does give the song a completely other dimension.

Have you seen one of the new $100 bills? My mother-in-law just showed me one she got at the bank yesterday.

Sorry, never heard of it. Is it a computer virus?

No idea if you use windows or what version if you do but here is how to delete it from windows 7. Included in the link are these ways:

 

  • Windows Control Panel: Click Start > Control Panel > Add / Remove Programs > FriendsChecker.
  • Windows Program Files: Click Start > Computer > C Drive > Program Files > FriendsChecker > Uninstall
  • Internet Explorer: Settings > Manage add-ons > Toolbars and Extensions > FriendsChecker
  • Firefox: Tools > Add-ons > Extensions > FriendsChecker > Remove
  • Chrome: Tool icon > Tools > Extensions > FriendsChecker > Trash Icon

A google search should bring up other ways of doing so.

 

Alternatively on Yahoo Answers someone posted

according to the website.... 

you can uninstall with no trace left behind. In order to do this, navigate to your computer's, "Add/Remove Programs," and click "Uninstall" under the FriendsChecker application. 

if it's not there, you might want to check your apps page on facebook and look for it there, then remove the app

The Beatles have been beaming out the message "I've Got To Get You Into My Life" for several decades now. I finally heard the message, and they got me into their lives via their musical legacy. I'm glad the call is still going out and the invitation is still open.

AG, as our resident librarian i have a question for you.

I got a cd out of the library which went put into the the computer it registers it but when play is pressed all the tracks are quickly skipped thru before it stops. Tried it on a different machine and the same thing happens. Should i phone the library in the morning or just tell them when it's returned?

I would phone them to see if others have asked them this same question and thus they have already done some troubleshooting with them. Sometimes people think it will take us hours to answer their question, but we have already answered that same question 5 time during the week and know the path well. Be prepared to tell them what the technical specs are for the machine you are using and the software program(s) you used to try to play it (Windows Media Player, etc).

Hopefully they haven't played fast-and-loose along the fringes of copyright law and made backups of backup cds (clones of clones dropping in quality - reminds me of John's tooth) that might be imports of some nature. It looks legit, right? And not too scratched up - I doubt it is a scratch issue though. It probably is more of a software issue.

Please update us with the answer you receive. Pass the wisdom along.

Anybody out there have something to add that might help in solving this problem?
