John on the subject of what people say:

Isolation

People say we got it made

Bless You

Some people say it’s over

Watching The Wheels

People say I’m crazy, doing what I’m doing

People say I’m lazy, dreaming my life away

The following people thank Richard for this post:

Ahhh Girl, Timothy, Rube

And in the end

The love you take is equal to the love you make

You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away

I’ll Cry Instead – I’m gonna hide myself away

You Can’t Do That – You’re talking that way they’d laugh in my face

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

A little more of John dreaming:

I’m Only Sleeping

When I’m in the middle of a dream

Tomorrow Never Knows

But listen to the colour of your dreams

Strawberry Fields Forever

But you know, I know when it’s a dream

#9 Dream

Was it in a dream, was it just a dream?

Dream, dream away

Watching The Wheels

People say I’m lazy, dreaming my life away

Paul in 2013 (New album)

I see the doctor coming down the street
I got no fever, but I’m feeling the heat
Oh boy, someone get me out of here

Paul in 2018 (Egypt Station album)

I lied to my doctor
But these days I don’t
‘cos I’m happy, with you

I’m glad he is happier. heart

It might’ve probably been noted on the thread already, but I think the appearance of the handholding motif in both these lyrics

Screenshot_20220719-110135_Samsung-Internet.jpgImage Enlarger

makes this a fairly well thought out (and obviously hugely successful) Capitol pairing. (And they worked fab well opening “Meet the Beatles” too).

Oh, and throw in “If I Fell ” as well to complete a trilogy, that’s got some handholding as well…apple01

John on the subject of ‘nothing’:

Strawberry Fields Forever

Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about

[John felt the lyric reflected reality. “In a way, no thing is real, if you break the word down,” John told Rolling Stone. “As the Hindus or Buddhists say, it’s an illusion. … We all see it, but the agreed-upon illusion is what we live in. And the hardest thing is facing yourself.”]

All You Need Is Love

Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time

[and several other ‘nothing’ lines]

Across The Universe

Nothing’s gonna change my world

The Ballad Of John And Yoko

You don’t take nothing with you but your soul, think!

Imagine

Nothing to kill or die for

Nobody Told Me

Always something happening and nothing going on
There’s always something cooking and nothing in the pot

I’ve been scanning the lyrics of Paul’s “1985,” and his actual ’85 hit “Spies Like Us” (theme to the Aykroyd/Chase vehicle) to look for lyrical continuity, but couldn’t really find anything beyond a “…no one…” and  “no one else can dance like you…”/ “…shake it baby!” (Plus the “you and Me Against the World, my love” theme that’s common to so much.of his stuff.)

…But there IS a Hollywood connection! Dan Aykroyd and “Band On The Run ” cover model Christopher Lee worked together professionally, appearing in Steven Spielberg’s over-the-top ’79 comedy attempt, “1941”. The script was by Bob Zemeckis and Bob Gale, whose previous collaboration with Spielberg was on the pair’s writing/directing debut: A very funny film called “I Wanna Hold Your Hand”, which has its own thread…

Giving Everything

A Hard Day’s Night

And it’s worth it just to hear you say you’re going to give me everything

The following three songs – all on the subject of ‘giving everything’ – sequentially close the first side of the original A Hard Day’s Night album:

And I Love Her

She gives me everything

Tell Me Why

Well, I gave you everything I had

Can’t Buy Me Love

I’ll give you all I’ve got to give

She’s Leaving Home

We gave her everything money could buy

I’m So Tired

You know I’d give you everything I’ve got for a little peace of mind

Sexy Sadie

We gave her everything we owned just to sit at her table
