Har har! I had a boyfriend from Wales once and in reference to him and more like a joke, I'd spell things when I had to write them out like "colo(u)r" and "reali-z/s-e"

I hang out with a bunch of linguistic anthropologists at work, so now I'm wondering if British people say colour so it rhymes with pour and if "realise" ends in a softer way than "realize" does. For the life of me, I can't remember, so my guess is probably not -- the pronunciation is the same.

"Colour" and "pour" don't rhyme in my accent, I don't know about the rest of Britain though. I don't think there's a difference in pronounciation between "realise" and "realize", though I have the opposite problem to you, I don't know how "realize" is pronounced! I think I can vaguely recall Bush or Obama pronouncing "realize", and aside from the quirks that exist in their accents anyway, I don't think there's a pronounciation difference.


On topic: Is Helter Skelter about heroin or a similar drug? I never thought this about the White Album version, but the Anthology version has altered lyrics: "when I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the ride, and I know when I get there I'll never get higher" with Paul's voice getting higher and quite smooth (not as in legato, but smooth in another way...), but anxious sounding. Then he goes a bit falsetto on "then I get to the bottom", and on "AND I SEE YOU AGAIN" he sounds like he's in agony and about to burst into tears, like he's just come down from a different sort of high.
