Me and Madi were talking about this song the other day and how you can't even listen to the song anymore after watching this video. The video makes you cry like a baby. Well, it made me and Madi cry.

 

Note by Ahhh Girl 25 May 2014: A second thread about this song was started on 25 March 2012 (see post #16 below). I merged it into this thread. Thank you, @parlance for the suggestion.

I'm not going to check it now, nor have I ever taken the time to listen to Real Love (I've heard it as backround music). But, thanks. I'll definitly check this out later on.

When I Twish And Shout, it makes the Girl say "What Goes On?", and than I say, "I do this Here, There and Everywhere", and than she finishes by saying "Honey Don't".

It is quite a beautiful song.

And it is used as background music in the video.

This song makes me cry.  I love it and it's beautiful.  Why can't John write music now a days? WHY!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-6Shame on you for making me bawl!! a-hard-days-night-john-4I hate these kinds of videos - yet love them at the same time... like the "In My Life" video at the beginning of the Anthology series thing:

The first time I heard the piano demo I was a little misty eyed. RIP John Winston (Ono) Lennon.

It didn't make me cry but it's a really nice video indeed. I like how they included Olivia there.. that was nice.

No… but I cried today when I listened to Something. Does that count? Please please I don't want to be a hearless soul!!!!! blue-meanie

 

Edit : For the record, I cried a lot when I saw that In my Life Anthology for the first time.  I was alone in a hotel room, holding a pillow and sobbing a lot. I remember feelling so bad and lonely that I didn't enjoy traveling for long, long time. Not until 5 years ago, and I was downsized 10 years ago.  THAT BAD I FELT.

Oh it's a song that always gets me. I wanted to ask my ex-fiancee to dance this song in our wedding day, but I couldn't do it because he broke up with me. He did it for political reasons: He never explained, but I guess his family didn't want him to leave his country. So he didn't.

 

Anyway. Now as Zig said, I'll have to hunt you and kill you after you have listened to my secret. Although it's not a secret after all the stories I wrote about that. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

That's ok. I don't mind saying this. The only confort I have is that this John Lennon might haunt him whenever he passes near this park LOL!!!!!!!!!

Can't listen to it after the video. 

First time I saw the video I lost it when the Pepper costumes were flying overhead.

 

I just can't do it.

I always see comments online saying people don't like that Real Love was transposed because John's voice sound funny. I completely disagree. John always was doing this. Some of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds has John's voice transposed, as does I'm Only Sleeping, Strawberry Fields Forever, and more.

I couldn't agree more. It's a great tune and George kills it in the solo (as in does a nice job as opposed to wrecks the tune!).

Sorry but every time i hear the Beatles version i'm reminded of the demo on the Lennon Anthology and how superior it is.

FAAB and RL are the only 2 beatles songs not on my ipod.

Real Love, to me, sounds like a John Lennon song, edited to the point where anything remotely John Lennon-y about it has gone. IMO the original demo is miles better.

Free As A Bird I do like though, I think the new parts compliment what John had already done, and it actually does sound like a Beatles song.

The reason the transposed voice fails to work on Real Love, is that the vocals were done on a piece of shit recorder, not a separate track of Abbey Road's many 4 tracks. The failure to make it seem in any way Lennonesque is true failure of the song. Hell, it might be their worst decision since, well, putting SFF and PL on the same single. But, Real Love's a joke. Give me the demo any day.
