The "John Lennon" figure standing with the "Allen Ginsberg" figure to the left of the picture throughout, until both walk off at the end.

That's supposed to be John Lennon? I had no idea. Cool!

But that's not what I meant. It has more to do with the song than the video.

Sorry, didn't hear anything in the song. As to John Lennon. Go to YouTube and type in "John Lennon Bob Dylan Taxi (or Limo)" and you will find a 1966 car journey that will drop your jaw. Two very wrecked superstars trying to outdo each other.

If anyone cares, try looking at the lyrics closely... perhaps backwards...

Our Queen (Beatrix) is abdicating, She'll give a speech at 19.00

I don't know, but this feels weird. We'll have a king then and that hasn't happened for a few hundred years. And I'm wondering what they'll do with Queensday.

I went to Queen's Day in Amsterdam a couple of years ago. Great times. Presumably it'll be King's Day now?

Is it just me or is the opening of The Lord Loves The One (That Loves The Lord) incredibly similar to Old Brown Shoe just slowed down - i thought i was listening to a cover until it got going.

Yeah Queen's Day was always fun. It has been Queen's Day since 1949! Now it'll be King's Day indeed and it will be celebrated at the 27th of April, instead of the 30th so it doesn't really make much difference, but it just feels weird. And the 27th of April will be on a Sunday next year so it will be celebrated at the 26th instead.

I imagine it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility that someday the Netherlands will have a gay king -- so they can restore "Queen's Day" after all...pete-best

Egroeg Evoli, should have guessed the answer you were looking for was "sdrawkcab" - the clue was always there! Glad I was able to show you something you hadn't spotted as well though.

Huh? Another palindrome! "sdrawkcab" - read it backwards. Thing I spotted you'd missed, the "John Lennon" figure.

I think technically speaking, a palindrome reads the same forward and backwards.

Wikipedia gives some examples:

"Madam, I'm Adam" 

"Never odd or even"

 "Doc, note: I dissent. A fast never prevents a fatness. I diet on cod"

The guy I mentioned above, Baby Gramps, has an amazing and humorous song where he just sings out one palindrome after another that he has made up, most of them hilariously nonsensical.

Interestingly, Wikipedia says that some writers have written entire books that are palindromes -- which means if you read the entire book backwards, it would read the same:

In English, two palindromic novels have been published: Satire: Veritas by David Stephens (1980, 58,795 letters), and Dr Awkward & Olson in Oslo by Lawrence Levine (1986, 31,954 words).[17] In French, Oulipo writer George Perec's "Grand Palindrome" (1969) is 5,556 letters in length.[18][19] In Hebrew, Noam Dovev wrote a 363-word, 1331-letter palindromic story called, "Do god".[20]

Yeah, that's why I was confused about sdrawkcab.

I agree. Correct definition. I wasn't saying Egroeg's name is a palindrome, or that "sdrawkcab" (my pun on her signature) is, just that they were clues to spotting a song made up of palindromes from its title onwards.
