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 :)   ).

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

^^That song pairs well with "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?

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.

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.

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.

More library adventures.

Was returning a few cd's i had out from a Glasgow library and found a 20 cd Johnny Cash collection and the first seven Bruce Springsteen albums, all remastered and all for the princely sum of 85p each for a weeks loan. The value is friggin' exceptional. 

Was talking to the librarian there, very pleasant and cheery she was, and even she was amazed at such collections being available to rent for such little money. She also said that some folks complain at the costs for hiring cds and dvd's (85p and £1.50 per week respectively) which i find mind-boggling (taking books out is free).

Over here it's both free. One only has to pay when they bring in their books/CDs/DVDs/comics/magazines late.

Flippin' heck. Do you take stuff out a lot then? What's the selection available like?

The airfare might make it a bit more expensive for me to come over every week and take things out.

It's all free here too.

At my library, the only fines are associated with our textbook check out collection. The only other charges are for when items aren't returned at all or are returned in unusable condition (in that case we charge for replacement and let the patron keep the item).

Glad you had a good chat with a librarian.

Not in the slightest. I just hope people are taking advantage of such a great opportunity and service.

My browser seems to have been infected by something called "FriendsChecker" that keeps sending pop-up ads all over the place. Anyone had the same problem and know how to get rid of the barsteward thing?

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.
