Hi

I want to know the meaning of you've really got a hold on me.

Is it an idiom in English ?

I think it means you left me waiting .

Please illustrate me.

Thanks.

It means someone is hooked on someone, like a tight grip emotionally.

In You Really Got A Hold On Me the singer wants to walk "i want to leave you, dont want to stay here, dont want to spend another day here" but cant "i want to split now, i just cant quit now" because he loves her, even tho he doesnt really like her.

 

The writer was an American called Smokey Robinson who was in a band called The Miracles before going solo. John and the other 3 Beatles were massives fans of their work. All Ive Got To Do, another song on With The Beatles, was a nod of appreciation to Smokey.

"She's got it coming" means that something's going to happen to her, probably something bad, or she's going to learn her lesson.

"She gets it" in the context of the next line doesn't really explain what it means in any way.

I always thought "She gets it while she can" was a reference to sex.

Would agree with you Joe. During the Get Back sessions as they are running thru an early take of Get Back Paul sings "all the girls around say she's got it coming, but she gets it while she can" and John gives out a very knowing laugh "hey, hey, hey, hey".

a-hard-days-night-george-4 I've always thought the bit about Loretta Martin means that she was a woman who looked like a man and although she told all the women"look, I'm really a girl", they kept coming on to her and eventually she just gave up... to them. I don't know if that's what it's "really" about, probably not a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

 

But the last verse "You mother's waiting for you wearing high-heel shoes and low neck sweater"...a-hard-days-night-ringo-6What is that supposed to mean? I bet Paul had fun writing these lyrics

The song is saying that Beethoven and classical musical was old and it was time to be replaced, move out of the way for new music - rhythm and blues.

Roll over is another way of saving move out of the way.

Actually, I like to think Chuck Berry was telling Beethoven to literally roll over (in his grave) and tell Tchaikovsky about this exciting new music called "rock and roll"! It's a very clever and amusing inversion of the idea of Serious Music fans despairing that classic composers like Beethoven would "roll over in their grave" if they knew what young people were listening to these days.

That´s another way of looking at it. I had never thought of it like that before!

Von - that's an interesting interpretation. I never thought of it like that. As for that Super Simple Songs vid, I've had to watch that literally dozens of times with my boy. Is there no escape???

Since I was searching around for threads that mention interpretations of songs, I came across this one.

@Von Bontee has this in a post above about the meaning of Roll Over Beethoven

...classic composers like Beethoven would "roll over in their grave" if they knew what young people were listening to these days.

That's the way I've seen it. I like his interpretation also. See post 12.

@Joe, are you going to share the "roll over"video with your daughter one day...or just let it quietly pass?

@Ahhh Girl Hopefully I can let it quietly pass. I'd imagine she'll be more exposed to the stuff Ted is watching (currently Frozen - "Let it go, let it go!").

Why is that video missing out lines from the song? What happened to 

"so they all rolled over and one fell out and banded his head and gave a shout,
Please remember to tie a knot in your pyjamas,
Single beds are only meant for,
One, Two, Three. . . "

...ok, Ludwig would definitely have been a rocknroll fan. He was rocking the early 19th century!

I've been discovering little Beatles-Beethoven parallels recently. Like, the way in the 5th Symphony and the "Appassionata Sonata", the way the third movement of each segues directly into the fourth, just like SPLHCB reprise into ADITL. Or the way the Finale of the 9th self-consciously quotes the previous movements, just like the "You Never Give Me Your Money" melody returning in "Carry That Weight". Also LVB was always kept up with the arts/revolutionary politics/technology, specifically the technological development of the hammerklavier - probly would've loved to have lived to the age of the Moog. And advances in hearing-aid technology. Plus he could go see "Help!" and maybe have a rare belly laugh or two. (Def. could've used one, poor bugger.)
