Rick Nelson Garden Party - yoko-ono-01Yoko brought her Walrus...

and Peter,Paul & Mary- I Dig Rock And Roll Music  

I dig Donovan in a dream-like, tripped out way
His crystal images tell you 'bout a brighter day
And when the Beatles tell you
They've got a word "love" to sell you
They mean exactly what they say
heart

Take this brother; may it serve you well.

Possibly innocent Lennon reference, but in Feist's Mushaboom, here's the chorus:

Old dirt road
Knee deep snow
Watching the fire as we grow old

(Old Dirt Road being a song of John's off Walls And Bridges, I do believe.)

As if it matters how a man falls down.'

'When the fall's all that's left, it matters a great deal.

Billy Joel's song She's Got A Way has a blatant reference to Anyway; a Paul McCartney masterpeice on Chaos And Creation.

She's got a way of pleasin'
I don't know what it is
But there doesn't have to be a reason anyway

All living things must abide by the laws of the shape they inhabit

Arkells - John Lennon

She tells me her favourite song And I say:

"Yeah, that's a good one" 

She says it follows her around

No shit, it's by the Beatles
And the chorus:

And I’m John Lennon in ‘67,

I’m John Lennon in ‘67
I’m John Lennon in ‘67,

I’m John Lennon in ‘67


This is one of the most kick-ass songs I know. Closed out their concert that I saw on Friday with it.

I'm into a lot of indie music, and there's a FANTASTIC band called "Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes". They (along with Fleet Foxes) are probably the most modern-day "hippie band" I can think of, and many of their songs were clearly inspired by The Beatles. In the opening track to their debut album, "Up From Below", the chorus goes:

 

Ah, it's the magical mystery kind

Ah, must be a lie

Bye bye to the too good to be true kind of love

Oh I could die

Oh now I could die


a-hard-days-night-ringo-8And directly after the chorus, voices come on sounding a lot like the "ho ho ho, hee hee hee, ha ha ha" that would be in "I Am The Walrus". Except it's kind of like their own take on it, if that makes sense...

 

And for the pop scene, the closing track on James Blunt's "All the Lost Souls" contains this chorus:


And if I can't hear the music and the audience is gone

I'll dance here on my own

And I hope the Lonely Hearts' Club Band will play out one last song

Before the sun goes down

"I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know? I'm just one of those people."

Has "Annie Christian" by Prince been mentioned yet?:

"She killed John Lennon/Shot him down cold/She tried to kill Reagan/Everybody say "gun control, gun control"

That was from 1981. (LOTTA high profile people getting shot back in those days.)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney
