I was listening to "She's Leaving Home" last night, and when the line "Fun is the one thing that money can't buy" came on, I actually shouted (aloud...oops!) "Nu~uh! Money Can't Buy Me Love!" haha. Needless to say, my dad looked at me like I was a freak. But--hey--judging by my signature, do you really think I care? a-hard-days-night-george-10

The following people thank Dipsy for this post:

Went to a garage sale this morning and was greeted by a mechanical stuffed bear singing "I Will" in a high cute voice! Got back in the car and the radio was playing "Come Together".

Dont know if anyone has ever seen or heard of it before but there is a Japanese film called Norwegian Wood which is described by Sky Tv Guide as "Tran Anh Hung's sensual drama about a man's memories, sparked by hearing a Beatles song, of his life and loves as a student in 1960's Toyko." No prices for guessing which Beatles song it would be. Its on Channel 4 in the UK at the moment - im not watching it, the name drew my attention.

 

The trailer on the films website is here and it has the actual Beatle performance which is a rarity surely since its usually covers.

Meanmistermustard, the link to the trailer takes me to the Rubber Soul page on this Forum.

 

In the meantime, this from today's New York Times:

Cute story.

It was originally a highly acclaimed novel by Japanese writer Haruki Murakami. I haven't seen the film but I read the novel and yes, the Beatles do feature heavily, amongst other pop music.

The other day, I heard Michelle in the supermarket, and my nine-year-old brother turned to me and said, "This sounds like Christmas music."
He has still not been forgiven.
Oh, and I hope your sister is feeling better, Mith!

Michelle is a pretty happy song, but I always thought it was more of a Fall song. When I listen hear Michelle I think orange, though that could just be because Rubber Soul is orange. a-hard-days-night-ringo-5
