In "One After 909", i think the line "Railman says 'You've got the wrong location'" is a sly way of saying that this thread has been hopelessly derailed

After 10 reads I don't get it. Explain?

I will definitley accept my share of the blame for this current derailment. This is what happens when your office decides to stay open on New Year's Eve. I have waaaaaaaaaaay too much time to post today.

And, Von, I think you inadvertantly added an entry to the Zigtionary. When someone derails, we can say they committed a 910.

Too bad there's no gif for that: The railman saying you've got the wrong location for a derailed thread.

Damn, I almost started typing the wrong words accidentally!

Yeah, I started to once again type four as opposed to for. Too much thought going into spelling things wrong the first time must have rubbed off the second time round!

OK. This isn't a "weird interpretation," but it is sort of on topic, so I will post it. (Ooh, that sounds like a T-shirt. Front: "If it's on-topic, I will post it." Back: "Heck, I'll post it even if it's not on topic." Underneath lettering on both sides: "Brought to You by the Beatles Bible Fab Forum")

In the second verse of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," there's a line. I always interpret it this way:

"I look at the world and I notice its turning." This means "I look at the world and notice the turning of the world."

But it can also be interpreted this way:

"I look at the world and I notice it's turning." Now, this might look exactly the same to all the people who frequently commit the vile atrocity of using "it's" to indicate possession or using "its" to indicate "it is." But it isn't. The above ("I notice its turning") is possessive. This ("I notice it's turning") is not. It means "I look at the world and I acknowledge that it turns." 

How do you guys interpret it? 

 

*1+(1+1)* 

My brain put two lines from two different Beatles songs together this evening. While searching for a place to post my rambling thoughts, I came across this gem of a post. I hope MeanMrsMustard will return one of these days.

I was listening to Abbey Road in the car on my way from work and heard this in Because

Because the world is round, it turns me on

Then, while mowing, I listened to the While Album again (it seems to be my go-to mowing album of late) and heard this in While My Guitar Gently Weeps

I look at the world and notice it's turning

I lean towards the line meaning "it is turning", but I can see the other interpretation as valid also.

I wonder if @Bungalow Bob has any thoughts about my ramblings here?

I actually prefer MeanMrsMustard interpretation as it gives it more of an edge in my eyes, you have to pay more attention and really stop to notice that the world is actually rotating all the time. We all know that it is but there is something quite wonderful in lying down, looking up, letting go and experiencing the turning of the world – its a very weird experience lying still yet feeling the movement (something we always are doing actually).

Its far more of an action than merely noticing.

And you all thought that AG was rambling. I know what i mean even if my words don't express it.

Your description evokes peaceful images, mmm. You sound like Mother Nature's Son in his field of grass.

On another tain of thought, I think Paul should write a song called "Ramble On" to go with "Ram On".

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.

There is a bunch derailment in this thread, but this is an interesting post. No one back then had any comments. I was wondering if anyone who is here now has any thoughts on this interpretation. (This was post 58 on page 3.)

Helter Skelter was never a drug song, any such interpretation is fans reading far too much into what was never there.
