The Hole Got Fixed, Von Bontee

“While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I’m a naysayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”

What do youse guys think about I’m Only Sleeping ? I’m itching to discuss something, and I’ve just been thinking how beautiful this song is. The whole feeling of the song to me is Depression. “I’m just gonna stay here, watching other people going about their lives, no, I’m fine, I’m Only Sleeping “.

I looooooooove I’m Only Sleeping ! It’s such an amazing song. I don’t really interpret it as being depressing though. I get a more mellow sort of feeling from it, like “Oh, all these people are rushing around with their busy lives, but I don’t want to do that, I’m just going to lie here and sleep and maybe look out the window once in a while, isn’t it nice?”

I definitely get that vibe, too! It’s just my depressed state that makes me relate to a sadder side, I think. 

 

(I probably should of put this in the I’m Only Sleeping thread but OH WELL)

The idea is that he’s not lazy, he’s in a zen state of mind while everybody else rushes about. A good way to justify being lazy!

It’s quite a peaceful song… but almost as nostalgic as Penny Lane for some reason.

Love one another.

Huh, i’ve never thought of it as nostalgic. It makes me feel a feeling, and the lyrics are definitely nostalgic-y, but i don’t feel specifically nostalgic.

I mean it’s not really the song itself, it’s just that this is one of the songs I listened to a lot when I was younger, so much younger than today, maybe between the ages of four and seven. I’m Only Sleeping , Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds , Penny Lane , Nowhere Man , and others all make me nostalgic.

Back on topic…

I’m Only Sleeping is such a great song. My issue with it is the production. It sounds… odd? I dunno. But the snare sounds like anything other than a snare, the bass has no attenuation…

 

For the topic of the thread, it has to be And Your Bird Can Sing . Fab guitar playing, cool bassline… 2 minutes of pop perfection.

Definitely right about snares and bass, I noticed that, too. But I guess that’s just the way it is… maybe it makes it sound a bit more mellower.

It might sound odd, I wouldn’t know, I think it’s perfection.

My favorite is definitely For No One .

Yes, I play the french horn. If you dig hard enough you might find the cover @Dark Overlord and I did of Sgt Pepper (he did all the guitars, I did everything else), which includes my french horn playing. 

I can’t play For No One though, it’s too high.a-hard-days-night-paul-10

From Wagner Tuba

Although the upper range of the horn repertoire rarely exceeds high C (two octaves above the horn’s middle C, sounding F at the top of the treble clef), skilled players in a good symphony orchestra can achieve yet higher pitches.

The solo gets to a D#, a minor third above that high C (so he was skilled, and could get it).

I can only get to a G below that high C, and rarely an A (I got it for Sgt Pepper ).

 

So much like Penny Lane ‘s more famous ‘out of the range’ solo, For No One is also out of the range.
