Non-attachment, not always useful, can in some cases lead to an inability to appreciate music.

I like it.  I also like the backup singing OOooooooohs  at the beginning.

Same with me. But, I am the type of person that likes singing along to noises like “ooohhh” and whatnot.

I very much enjoy the song. I can’t really say much about it because I haven’t listened to it in quite a bit and it’s gonna be hard finding a “not blocked from America” video. Something about it just fascinates me, but I’m not too sure what it is that makes me enjoy it so much

Amen. The opposite of love is not hate – it’s indifference.

Hear, hear! There’s an excellent Nathaniel Hawthorne quote on how love and hate are really quite similar, both being strong passionate emotions and all. (under spoiler) 

‘It is a curious subject of observation and inquiry, whether hatred and love be not the same thing at bottom. Each, in its utmost development, supposes a high degree of intimacy and heart-knowledge; each renders one individual dependent for the food of his affections and spiritual life upon another; each leaves the passionate lover, or the no less passionate hater, forlorn and desolate by the withdrawal of his object.’

Joy and sorrow are also the same.

I love this song. I was disappointed it ranked so low in our poll.

I think it’s one of Paul’s strongest songs.  I never get tired of hearing it.

This song makes me so happy, and it’s probably one of my favorite Beatles songs. How could anybody not be happy while listening to it? And the music video makes it even better.

That’s really cool! Number of songs in my iTunes account: 0. That’s why I didn’t know that. 

Though if I had to guess my most played song on my iPhone, it would be a photo-finish between AYBCS and Getting Better .

stay-on-topic

Your Mother Should Know is a song I love for a personal reason. The Beatles recorded that between 24 and 48 hours before my Mother was born. And of course, my mum needs to reminded constantly with the lines:

Though she was born a long, long time ago

Your Mother Won’t Know.

This has long been one of my least loved Beatletunes – as noted,  the melody isn’t much, and I always hated the lifelessness. It seemed dumb to give a supposed feel-good song such a lack of sprightliness and overall frankness…

…but what if that’s the point? I was thinking about this song last night while ranking MMT, and I wondered: Have I been getting this song wrong? Is it meant to be a depressing tale of old people thinking about older people getting older, and forgetting songs they liked, and lapsing in and out of the past to an organ reverie?

I think I might just go on believing that, gives me new respect apple01

I think it’s a great and very underrated song. Lyrically I view it as a homage to the music hall/jazz tunes that Paul grew up with as a kid, or just an appreciation of music from the past in general.

I’ve always thought that it is a very clever lyric, that only gets better with time.

That’s the impression I get too, but the track is less upbeat musically than a similar legitimate oldie would be. Odd (not necessarily bad) they didn’t consider adding horns/reeds.

Not depressing, that’s not Paul’s thing. There was a time when families would entertain themselves gathered around the family piano for a singalong, the song appears to be from the point of view of one of his aunts or uncles. That used to be a common experience from Paul’s childhood. Your mother might literally know the song, sing it again. Perhaps Paul didn’t mean to immortalise a lost culture, I think he’s so enthusiastic about family it gets into his songs all the time.

Yeah to all that. I know it’s not like Paul to do melancholy, but that’s part of what I’m liking about what I’m suddenly hearing in this song, its rarity! What would Paul think of a fan who (possibly) wrongly reinterprets his song and finally appreciates it for the first time?
