a-hard-days-night-ringo-8That chord is just a Bm chord, in the key of A (or Am, but regardless it’s still in key). The trick is you’re expecting an F#m chord like the previous bridge.

 

13 Beatles/Solo songs with distinctive or unexpected chords

1. I Want To Tell You (E7b9 in the verse)
2. Lady Madonna (E7 for “see how they run,” secondary dominant in the key of D)
3. Blue Jay Way (Cb5 on “said” of “‘We’ll be over soon,’ they said”)
4. I’ll Be Back (Can’t identify it, but the chord that accompanies “I…[thought that you would realize]” feels pretty unexpected)
5. Tomorrow Never Knows (C11 on ‘it is dying, it is dying’, or similar lyrics)

 

Edit: Fiddyyyy! I haven’t done one of those in ages…

13 personal reflections on one of the people represented on the Sgt. Pepper ‘s album cover (key in spoiler)

As the sixties went on I remember some teachers wisely trying to incorporate popular culture into the curriculum. In one instance my history teacher assigned us to write up any thoughts/impressions on one of the people the Beatles “admired” from the Sgt. Pepper ‘s album cover.

1. To this day I have wondered about the inclusion of boxer Sonny Liston, who Muhammad Ali famously beat to win his first World Title (after which he proclaimed I AM THE GREATEST!!). I don’t know much about Liston, but I do know this fight was a big deal. It is the only fight I ever remember my Father listening to on he radio and afterwards being very angry that it was “fixed”. When I see Liston my first impression is that it should have been Ali!

2. I grew up loving all the old time comedians and was glad to see Huntz Hall here.  He was part of the Bowery Boy movies.  Leo Gorcey played the leader as a likable tough guy and Huntz Hall played the idiot.  But hardly anybody else in the gang seemed to have any lines.  TCM stll shows their old movies on occasion.  But that seems to have devolved into a separate pay channel now.  Boo Hiss!  I don’t recall any Beatle saying they were a fan of Huntz or the Boys in a interview.  Still, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick may have modeled his look after Huntz.  And Cheap Trick played with John at some Double Fantasy sessions.  There’s a cosmic connection for you!

3. Poor Marilyn Monroe. With all the crap being revealed in the business of Hollywood the last 5 years, it’s a wonder any actress survived. And you know it’s been going on for decades. If you have ever doubted her acting talent, watch “Bus Stop.”  It is totally unlike all of her other roles; no singing, definitely being “dressed down” compared to Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How to Marry a Millionaire.  I recently decided to buy a set of her motion pictures, as I had only seen one film (The Misfits), and was surprised by her talent. Then, perhaps on a threat to reveal something on some Hollywood producer (or a President??), she “committed suicide.”  And just everyone trying to make a buck off of her; how horrible people can be to each other.

4. Shirley Temple. When I was about 2 years old, I came in from the back yard and asked my mom for a box of raisins. She handed them to me, and she thought I went back out the door. When she looked out the door a little later, she didn’t see me. She panicked. She called her friends on our street and asked them to start looking for me. The neighborhood kids called me Shirley Temple because of my curly hair. They all joined in the search for Shirley Temple. One neighbor finally asked my mom if she had check in the house. Mom came in and called my name, and I replied, “Here me is.” I was in the living room watching the telly.

5. On a day off from a Rhine cruise in Germany, I found myself in a gallery in Heidelberg enjoying an exhibition of paintings by artist Richard Lindner. I copied some examples of his work in the spoiler. I thought his style reminded me of the Yellow Submarine animation, so I made a note to research his work when I got home. It turned out he had nothing to do with the film, but to my surprise he is included on the Pepper cover!

2. I grew up loving all the old time comedians and was glad to see Huntz Hall here. He was part of the Bowery Boy movies. Leo Gorcey played the leader as a likable tough guy and Huntz Hall played the idiot. But hardly anybody else in the gang seemed to have any lines. TCM still shows their old movies on occasion. But that seems to have devolved into a separate pay channel now. Boo Hiss! I don’t recall any Beatle saying they were a fan of Huntz or the Boys in a interview. Still, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick may have modeled his look after Huntz. And Cheap Trick played with John at some Double Fantasy sessions. There’s a cosmic connection for you!

3. Poor Marilyn Monroe. With all the crap being revealed in the business of Hollywood the last 5 years, it’s a wonder any actress survived. And you know it’s been going on for decades. If you have ever doubted her acting talent, watch “Bus Stop.” It is totally unlike all of her other roles; no singing, definitely being “dressed down” compared to Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How to Marry a Millionaire. I recently decided to buy a set of her motion pictures, as I had only seen one film (The Misfits), and was surprised by her talent. Then, perhaps on a threat to reveal something on some Hollywood producer (or a President??), she “committed suicide.” And just everyone trying to make a buck off of her; how horrible people can be to each other.

4. Shirley Temple. When I was about 2 years old, I came in from the back yard and asked my mom for a box of raisins. She handed them to me, and she thought I went back out the door. When she looked out the door a little later, she didn’t see me. She panicked. She called her friends on our street and asked them to start looking for me. The neighborhood kids called me Shirley Temple because of my curly hair. They all joined in the search for Shirley Temple. One neighbor finally asked my mom if she had check in the house. Mom came in and called my name, and I replied, “Here me is.” I was in the living room watching the telly.

5. On a day off from a Rhine cruise in Germany, I found myself in a gallery in Heidelberg enjoying an exhibition of paintings by artist Richard Lindner. I copied some examples of his work in the spoiler. I thought his style reminded me of the Yellow Submarine animation, so I made a note to research his work when I got home. It turned out he had nothing to do with the film, but to my surprise he is included on the Pepper cover!

6. I would have liked Albert Einstein to be more clearly visible; his picture is largely obscured, but just moving Oscar Wilde up slightly would have provided sufficient room for Albert’s head to be seen. He was a visionary, thinking ahead of his contemporaries in an almost outrageous way at times – so there are similarities with the Beatles in some respects.

13 personal reflections on one of the people represented on the Sgt. Pepper ‘s album cover (key in spoiler)
As the sixties went on I remember some teachers wisely trying to incorporate popular culture into the curriculum. In one instance my history teacher assigned us to write up any thoughts/impressions on one of the people the Beatles “admired” from the Sgt. Pepper ‘s album cover.
 

1. To this day I have wondered about the inclusion of boxer Sonny Liston, who Muhammad Ali famously beat to win his first World Title (after which he proclaimed I AM THE GREATEST!!). I don’t know much about Liston, but I do know this fight was a big deal. It is the only fight I ever remember my Father listening to on he radio and afterwards being very angry that it was “fixed”. When I see Liston my first impression is that it should have been Ali!

2. I grew up loving all the old time comedians and was glad to see Huntz Hall here. He was part of the Bowery Boy movies. Leo Gorcey played the leader as a likable tough guy and Huntz Hall played the idiot. But hardly anybody else in the gang seemed to have any lines. TCM still shows their old movies on occasion. But that seems to have devolved into a separate pay channel now. Boo Hiss! I don’t recall any Beatle saying they were a fan of Huntz or the Boys in a interview.

7. In 1963 I spent a day at my aunt and uncle’s house. They had quite an eclectic record collection consisting of jazz, R&B, and pop. Among the records was one by folk trio Peter, Paul and Mary. I listened to it and the last song was Bob Dylan‘s Blowin’ in the Wind, which really caught my 9 years old attention. The concepts of “White doves…sleeping in the sand” and “Cannonballs…forever banned” made a lifelong impression, making me aware of a movement that was completely outside my experience. After posing the song’s questions, Dylan makes clear that all are welcome “my friend”. (I realized later that the answers to these questions are obvious). In a way that moment marked the end of my childhood and when I first heard the call that many have answered.
