The “evolution of Strawberry Fields” video has been posted several times in this thread (see Kite’s post 68 above as an example) so I moved Oudis’s post and the follow up comments here. Do I get an “A” for my work, @Zig?

Whenever it comes to your research work, always assume the “A”. Oh heck, let’s make it an “A+”.

Just throwing this out there but whenever I hear the words ‘Nothing is Real’ I often misinterpret them as ‘Nothing Israel’

That one would be a good one to x-post to the Misheard Lyrics thread.

How do we know Israel exists? How do we know that any of what we see is ever truly real and is not just our perceptions? Maybe all this is just one huge dream and nothing is indeed real.

Unfortunately to some people in parts of the world Israel would rather be an illusion.

Maybe the song discreetly promotes anti-Israelite behaviour and Strawberry Fields is a metaphor for an idealistic society without Isreal :O

If it isn’t real, does it matter?

Probably to the Jewish populous

Can someone tell me exactly when the ‘splicing’ comes in? I thought it was at one part, then I heard someone say it was at the one-minute mark, and now I’m confused.

Form Joe’s article on the song:

The edit can be heard on the final version at precisely the 60 second mark, immediately prior to the words “going to” in the second chorus. The joining of the two versions marked the completion of Strawberry Fields Forever , nearly a month after recording began.

Yeah, it’s at approximately the 1 minute mark, @Silly Girl.

Let me take you down cause I’m… Ringo drums, strings appearing …‘ going to…

The edit occurs where the strings arrive.

Well, well. Here we have the #1 song from the Beatles Bible canon poll of 2015.

nummer-1-logo1.jpgImage Enlarger

At the 3:42 mark (after the song fades out and come back in), the sound is like sirens that are foreshadowing the fire engine in Penny Lane .

This article appeared on the ‘net two day ago.

I Think I Know I Mean a Yes
by John R. Hall / August 29th, 2015

The title for this piece is a line from the lyrics of “Strawberry Fields Forever ”, sung for the bemusement and ponderation of future generations by The Beatles, and written by John Lennon , Paul McCartney , John Winston, and Paul James (get it right dude). Back in ’67 when the song was new and freshly put to vinyl, the lyrics made perfect sense. Of course, I was smoking a lot of weed in those days. Socrates is credited with saying that the only thing we can truly know is that we can know nothing. Enigmatic phrases from many of their songs would indicate that The Beatles concurred.

A quick internet search turned up four distinctly different versions of this single seemingly insightful but somewhat puzzling line.

1. I think a no will mean a yes
2. I think I know I mean–er–yes
3. I think ehh no, I mean ehh yes
4. I think I know I mean a yes

It seems we don’t really know the lyrics of one of the most recognizable songs of our generation, let alone all the hidden meanings and nuances.

I just found the official Beatles website and found out the truth, or at least some version of the truth:

5. I think a “No,” I mean a “Yes”.

I’ll go with number five unless Sir Paul drops by for a pint and tells me differently.

Others will notice Mr Hall trying to get it right and getting it wrong.

In the article he is saying he is a truth finder. So I guess he was just looking for the “true” way the lyric goes.
