I'm liking it Moog, I'm liking it...

Finally his lottery ticket comes up with all six numbers... he sees her for the manipulative b**** she always was and with all the girls in the neighbourhood now throwing themselves at him he realises the shy girl who wouldn't take his phone calls and hid behind the curtains when he called around (making him feel like a no-hoper) at the start of the opera was the right one for him all along... so they finally overcome their awkwardness and hook up together with all the other girls looking on in envy...

cue George to close the show!  ;D

Nothing like a happy ending.  ;yes

All my wife's relatives are in Donetsk again.

It seems, Ukranian president Poroshenko is also doing everything to detach Donetsk and Luhansk regions from Ukranian, or at least just destroy the population there. Recently they stopped paying pensions to the people there, it is several hundred thousands. What should have old people to do, when they just have no money  ???

I guess we have to add this one to the songs George didn't play lead on!

A couple of pictures of John and his Rickenbacker 325/12, Dave...

Thanks, I knew he had one of these as they showed it in Beatles Gear but I didn't know he used it in a song. I must say I've always thought the rhythm was strong in this song. Go George!

Oh I don't know Mr M. Couldn't you consider it a mini Rock Opera. Starts off all great I'm so lucky, moves onto drunken stalking and finishing with a plaintive cry asking what she's doing to him.

A picture paints a thousand words HG!  ;)

Jane was Paul's muse for sure... and I still think "Every Little Thing"/"What You're Doing" are the yin/yang dynamic of their relationship:

ELT the buoyant, romantic optimism and affectionate appreciation - gratitude even - for the up side...

WYD the anguished, wounded despair for the rejection and spite of the down side...

The pair of songs together give a perfect "can't live without her/can't put up with her" seesaw perspective to their intense relationship. So rare for Paul to open up like this rather than hide behind his imaginary characters posting letters and picking up rice and so on.

Meanwhile (on "Beatles For Sale") in the middle of all this there's a maudlin drunk pacing around the kitchen muttering about his girl who's stormed out of the party. Go and find her then and leave us with the fascinating hot/cold emotions of these two great tracks!!

A similar pair of songs are on Revolver - Here, There And Everywhere and For No One.

Rubber Soul had two songs on the "down side;" You Won't See Me and I'm Looking Through You, the latter toned down from its original delivery...


The Beatles - "I'm Looking Through You"



I eventually got a piano of my own up in the top garret. Very artistic. That was the piano that I fell out of bed and got the chords to Yesterday on. I dreamed it when I was staying there. I wrote quite a lot of stuff up in that room actually. I'm Looking Through You I seem to remember after an argument with Jane. There were a few of those moments.
