There is a french song about the split up of the The Beatles, there are a LOT of references in the lyrics.”Sgt Pepper lost his medals, Yellow Submarine is swallowed up, Lady Madonna picking flowers…”

Does this translation look correct, @Pennys Poppies?

@Ahhh Girl It’s pretty well translated !mal-evans

There’re just this errors : “It snowed on Yesterday The night they left each other (only for the first, for the others, it’s right), and Jude is living alone in a cottage in Chelsea, Eleanor Rigby , your four musicians come one at a time to see you”

Rare 1964 single by The Foto-Fi Four (Harry Nilsson), Stand Up and Holler (a.k.a. All for The Beatles), which he co-wrote with John Marascalco. It marries a Rolling Stones Not Fade Away/Bo Diddley beat to lyrics about the Beatles arrival in the U.S.. The four-part harmonies are an early example of Nilsson’s love of overdubbing, as all voices are him. The original single, which didn’t chart, came with a short 8mm film of the Beatles landing in New York.

Hey, hey, how you girlies gonna flip those bonnets
Hey, here comes the plane with the Beatles on it
Look, there’s John, Paul, George and Ringo
One of ’em’s taken but three are single

Two bit, four bit, six bits, a dollar
All folks need ’em to stand up and holler
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

Ooh, buy your records and see your movies
Hey, how can four cats be so groovy?
Long black hair just hangin’ in your face now
Ain’t nobody gonna take your place now

Two bit, four bit, six bits, a dollar
All for the Beatles just stand up and holler
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

When you sing that ‘Twist And Shout ‘ now
Knock those little girls right on out now
When you shake your head like you do-oo
Thrill them little girls through and through now

Two bit, four bit, six bits, a dollar
All for The Beatles to stand up and holler
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

Oh Beatles, Beatles, don’t ever leave now
‘Cause if you do we’ll surely grieve now
Oh stay right here where you belong
‘Cause we love you and your song

Two bit, four bit, six bits, a dollar
All for The Beatles to stand up and holler
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

Wow, that’s great! Harry never could’ve guessed that in three years he’d be cited as the boys’ favourite artist, nor that he’d honor and collaborate with ’em in later years.

Not strictly a Beatles reference here, just a mention of a “deluxe Merseybeat wig”. But since it’s the Bonzos, and it’s a great song from an excellent debut and it deserves to be heard, here it is…

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Sure wish there was a YouTube link for this song, “So you busted Paul McCartney “,closing track from Canadian meat-and-potatoes generic hardrocker Gus’ 1980 debut (??only??) album “Convicted”, not only so I could share it, but so I could hear it myself again, which I haven’t a decade, since I streamed and downloaded it illegally and the computer died ?. As best I recall It lasts about a minute, has a single verse, and repeats the “I want you/heavy” riff throughout, as backing, then fades. Anyways, the album isn’t too distinguished, even by the standards of 1980 Canadian generic hard rock, but “She’s not gonna come to you” is a pretty good song as far as that goes. Be nice if there was a YouTube link.

Found this cool folk-rock satire “The Anti-Protest Protest Song” (1966) just now, which addresses the Beatles and Dylan (and Sonny & Cher!)

From country/rockabilly singer Tommy Collins in 1965, this one’s got a full verse devoted to the Beatles; and I was anticipating he was gonna try to call them monkeys (because hairy), but no: just their fans, certain ones beatlemaniacs_02_gif who scream through an entire show:

No clue if its been mentioned:

Hey John by the (east) german band Die Puhdys:

A tribute song for John. Beautiful melancholy about how his life and work influcened the writer

Lyrics

Bilder schmückten meine Wand.
He, John, darauf Dein Name stand.
Und meine Haare trug ich ganz genau wie Du.
Warst Du zu hören, hört ich zu.
Du wecktest in mir Dinge, die mir neu und fremd.
Sehnsucht, die ich nie gekannt.
Es war Dein Lied, das mir gefiel.
Ich sang es mit mal laut mal still.
In meinen Träumen wollt ich damals sein, wie Du.
Wie Du wollt ich im Leben stehn.
Und viele Stunden hatte ich oft keine Ruh,
Hört ich Dein Lied: Give Peace A Chance .
Weg zwischen Wirklichkeit und Traum
Ließ Deinem Leben keinen Raum.
Sehe Dein Bild vor mir,
Das schweigend von Dir spricht.
Weiß, daß mehr als Erinnrung bleibt.
Und Deine Stimme, die die Wahrheit sucht, erlischt.
Doch Deine Lieder schweigen nicht.
Sehe Dein Bild vor mir,
Das schweigend von Dir spricht.
He, John, Lieder schweigen nicht.
Deine Lieder schweigen nicht.
He, John, Lieder schweigen nicht.
Deine Lieder schweigen nicht.
He, John, Lieder schweigen nicht.
Deine Lieder schweigen nicht.
He, John, Lieder schweigen nicht.
Quelle: Musixmatch

 

Translation:

Pictures dressed my wall

Hey John, they called your name

And I I wore my hair just as you did.

When I heard you I listened

You did awake things new and strange to me.

A Longing I never knew.

It was a song I liked. 

I sang along, loud or quietly.

In my dreams I wanted to be like you.

I wanted to stay in life like you did.

And for many hours I couldnt rest

when I heard your Song Give Peace A Chance .

A way between reality and dream

gave no room to your life

I see the picture of you in front of me

that speaks of you in silence.

I know there will be more then memories.

And your voice which seeks truth dies down

but your songs dont go silent. 

I see the picture of you in front of me

that speaks of you in silence.

Hey John, songs dont go silent. 

Your songs dont go silent

 

I love this song!

It’s not really a reference but in the movie The End of Evangelion, there is a song which sounds a lot like Hey Jude . Some people think that the director of the movie wanted to use Hey Jude but he couldn’t because of the copyright. (I don’t know if it’s true but that’s possible mccartney-shrug_01_gif)

I’m glad, he didn’t use it. Even if I love this movie, It would annoyed me that Hey Jude was linked to this. (Especially since the scene where the song appears is quite gory.)

 

A funny detail : the movie poster is directly inspired by this painting “The General Zapped an Angel” (1970) by Karel Thole

and, of course, it reminds me the cover of the album Mind Games ! (I don’t know if it’s a reference to that painting or maybe, the poster of Rosemary’s Baby or maybe…nothing, it’s just a coincidence !)

Now, this may or may not exist, like Carnival Of Light  it has never leaked.

When rumours started doing the rounds that the Flaming Lips had started work had started work on a follow-up to 2006’s At War with the Mystics in 2009, Wayne Coyne confirmed the rumours to Billboard, announcing it would be a double album…

Somewhere along the way it occurred to me that we should do a double album. Just this idea that you can kind of weave a couple of themes into there and you can sort of sprawl a little bit. Our past couple of records we’ve always had this little dilemma, like how many songs do you put on? How many instruments do you put on? What’s the focus?

And some of my favorite records – thinking Beatles ‘White Album ,’ Zeppelin’s ‘Physical Graffiti’ and even some of the longer things that the Clash have done – part of the reason I like them is that they’re not focused. They’re kind of like a free-for-all and go everywhere. It’s not necessarily because we’re prolific, I think we always stay in a sort of perpetual panic of like we never have more songs than we need and we always wonder if any of them are any good to begin with. I do think we probably work best in a panic, so maybe it’s best that I planned it this way.

He said they had thirteen tracks written, and needed another eight or nine to finish the untitled title, which went on to be released as Embryonic. Among the song titles mentioned in the Billboard article are the album’s opening track and one that didn’t make the final cut and, so far as I know, has never been heard:

Among the new songs currently in the mix are the Joy Division-meets-Miles Davis Group (John McLaughlin era)-sounding Convinced of the Hex and the John Lennon -inspired I Don’t Understand Karma, which Coyne describes as his response to Instant Karma .

Let’s hope it sees the light of day at sometime as, given Coyne as a writer, could be an interesting song.

beatlemaniacs_02_gifThe Beatles are here, hoo-ray!- beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Very fun and catchy exploitation-pop number from 1964, Little Cheryl’s “Yeh, Yeh, We Love ’em All”, in which Cheryl and her backup-fangirls rhyme the title with “Johnny & George & a-Ringo & Paul…”, and yell to us how they’re gonna throw jellybeans and rush the stage to get their fingers at that hair! (And yell)

Only found out the song exists and I don’t understand it. I think it’s not being scared despite being a tourist and wanting to go because of John living there yet it covers John’s murder and murderer so I have no idea and it might not be to everyone’s taste; it puzzles me.

I think it captures the ambivalence of wanting to visit the place where John lived and died. He’s never been in New York before, and is thinking about the fact that John was a stranger there when he first arrived. The singer is excited to see the Empire State Building, and all the other things he’s seen on screens, but he’s also discomfited by the loud noises, and violent history of the place. He has to remind himself that he doesn’t need to be scared.

 That’s how I read it anyway

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

Recorded on 9 December 1980 (42 years ago today) by Baxter, Baxter, and Baxter, written by Stephen Kilgore, Virginia Fielder, and B. Castleman, released within 48 hours in the US by Sun Records, this has to be the first record responding to John’s murder.

In their 10 December press release they said:

This record by Baxter, Baxter, and Baxter – “John” was recorded 12/9/80, but only after much discussion before we reached a decision. Myself, my staff, Baxter, Baxter, and Baxter, the musicians, the writers; we all agreed, let’s do it, but with love not a “tribute” or whatever you call songs about great men. We all did it with love.

Just listen with love.

Kind of fitting that it was released on the Sun label as there lay the beginnings of all that would inspire John and the other Beatles to do what they did.

Probably reflects more my ignorance, but I never heard of the Baxters or Stephen Kilgore, and brief Googling doesn’t come up with anything musical.
