Thank you Marcelo! I'll give you 2 apples to be even a-hard-days-night-john-2  apple01 apple01

 

I'm still in awe. How to say it? Man that is music!!!!!! If a trained musician could make an orchestration of that, and sound similar, then it's music. 

 

It's now clear. Revolution 9 is a song and the instrument John used (with George and Yoko) is loops on tape. John Winston Ono Lennon you were truly something out of this Earth. a-hard-days-night-john-7

Now that was cool, thanks for the links guys. Jeez, John Lennon was a cool dude, those tracks like Revolution 9 and Walrus are so great because you can always hear something new and different even after hearing them hundreds of times.

I love John's quote about number 9 too, "I don't know what influence Revolution 9 had on the teenybopper fans, but most of them didn't dig it. So what am I supposed to do?"

So he tried stuff, it's so weird because there is no one nowadays in music that's really like that, but you'd have to figure that's by design. The attitude today must be 'we want musicians to fit into X mold and that's that,' but we just need someone like John to come along and change things because music still could be great, if it was great then it could be great now. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one...hopefully.

You know, even though I love this thing (I mean, R9), I don't really think this is the most "mold-breaking" Lennon. In my opinion, "Help" "Strawberry Fields Forever", "I Want You (She's So Heavy)", "Happiness Is A Warm Gun", "A Day In The Life" or "For the Benefit of Mr. Kite" are those ones that give him his fame, because these songs are breaking through the parameters of pop music from within.They're songs, but they have something (in every case something different) that don't fit exactly in what is expected.

 

Revolution 9 is an exercise of being genially annoying. And he succeeded.

You're right about that, a song like Walrus or Strawberry Fields would still be a good song even if you took the craziness out of them.

I disagree about Walrus. The Backing track is nothing special.

You would disagree with yourself, as I do, if you try to play the riff and solo of this song.

Well, I'm stupid. Revolution 9 is certainly a great piece of music, even if of the Avant Garde variety. I truly like this song, (not enough to add it to my IPod, but still). I was wrong here as I was about TNK. I can't believe I ever disliked it so much. Although I still much prefer Good Night.

a-hard-days-night-paul-6Changing your mind about, or warming up to a track does not make you stupid. It just proves you are becoming more open-minded (that's what I tell myself anyway).

I actually did not skip it while listening to the WA again last night. I'm still not a huge fan of it, but hearing the little bitties others in the Forum bring up is kinda fun.

You know, this song is actually good (to me), and it was sooooo funny, because I was playing the Beatles (White Album) at me friend's house, and she was listening to it, but in the middle of the song, she screamed!! It was hilarious!!

Did she scream as a joke? Or did something actually freak her out?
