The Railroad Man - A great (but difficult) movie about a British soldier taken prisoner and sent to work on the Burma railway where he is beaten and tortured by the Japanese. Ultimately, he goes back to face his captor and free his demons. The story ends in forgiveness!

Wasn't that a true story Dave?  Guess I could look it up.

That's nice you guys do this. I would too but I'm afraid I don't have really anything interesting to contribute.

Nonsense Kelley.  Please join us.  We don't care what your CD consists of.  I like the fact that the CD speaks about that persons musical taste.  That's all.  If its a Beatle CD, who cares.  At least somebody would know what Beatle songs you liked.  All music is welcome as long as you like it.

instead of posting a CD and receiving just one CD

why not upload them somewhere as mp3's  then we can hear all of them

Its cool if youd rather do the other

That's a great idea too Kev.  I have to admit though, that i'm an idiot and not sure how to upload them as mp3's.  I could probably learn though.

I'm interested. What happens exactly?

 :)

Its supposed to work on the premise of creating matchups (picking names out of a hat) and whoever your matched up with, you send them a CD with music that your interested in and that person tries to guess who sent the CD based on musical tastes.  It didn't work that way last year as we knew who was sending to who.  Heck, I think most of us ended up sending copies to multiple people if they requested.  Personally, I love listening to the CD's so I always request.

We can be silent and have people guess (use DM Beatles as your name on the package) or we can just matchup with whoever.  I'm open to everybodys input.

Love the song.  Really dig Paul's voice (falsetto is awesome) and Johns singing of the parents point of view.  Fantastic song.

Yep I think the overall meaning works well. Her parents pampered but cloistered her. All she wanted was a bit of .....fun.  ;D

Just one of those lines that jumps out at me I guess.

I recall reading an interpretation once that the "man in the motor trade" was slang for an abortionist. Didn't sound too convincing. And didn't really work in the overall story. Interested if anyone had heard that or could shed light on it.

I cant believe that is true

what fun would she be having with an abortionist ?

Yeah he seemed to be pretty jaundiced against him. And I think at that stage George still could be a bit clumsy with his leads. He did tend to learn note for note and try to get it perfect. Rather than improvise.  But being too dismissive of him seems at odds with others recollections. While johns guitar playing is a bit underrated, I don't think anyone ever claimed he was a match for George on leads. He himself said he never did any leads George couldn't do better. And John wasn't exactly free with compliments. So the idea he'd step in when George couldn't get it seems unlikely. Paul by 66 had developed pretty well that sort of flashy style of solo. I thought his taking over as soloist on a few pepper tracks was more because that style suited some of the songs. And George was going through a disengaged phase trying to learn sitar.

Eric Clapton also clearly had lots of respect for George as a muso. And clappers wasn't easy to please.

I haven't read the book for a while but didn't Geoff acknowledge at one point that George had developed by the late 60s into probably the best producer of the four?

I havent got that far yet !

Im only up to Pepper, main points that leap out;

Johns personality has changed, he is now laid back, submissive, aggreable and generally easy to get on with, unlike the earlier impatient John who could bite your head off. (Drugs?)

Paul is the worker bee, it was during Pepper he started adding his bass lines last, so some days after the others left at 1 am or so he would stay to perfect his bass lines till dawn, keeping Geoff and Richard Lush there all night, George Martin would leave around midnight - tired

Paul also took advantage of Johns new attitude and become default Musical director, arranger, artistic developer of idea's and even possible producer.

Ringo sat in the corner with Mal & Neil playing chess and brewing tea

George seemed disinterested in the whole project and only became interested when working on WYAWY

In the context of the song though...

the words go;

"She is having....fun"

"fun is the one thing that money cant buy"

I always took it to mean she never had fun at home, even though "We gave here everything money could buy"   it didnt buy her any fun, and now she is having...........fun.  ;)
