Looking for a song
« on: November 19, 2004, 05:30:16 PM »

I'm looking for a Beatles, McCartney, Lennon, Harrison or Starr song which has lyrics containing the theme death. OK, let me put it this way: I want a song about death. LOL  ;D

It's for a project at school (I don't want to talk about that...)

Well, JOHN said that the song "Tomorrow never knows" was taken out from the "Tibethan book of the dead". I wish that could help you...

Thanks a lot, are there any other songs? C'mon people, you all know the lyrics!
(Believe me, there aren't many Beatles songs about death.)

I always relate A Day in the Life to death..
The way its sung, plus the Guiness heir who died in the car crash (Blew his mind out ina  car)..stuff like that, gives a really sad mix to the song..

Although Mccartney likes to think that line is just about someone taking drugs at the traffic lights...depends on what interpretation :)

Eleanor Rigby - Death is a major theme.

There's one song of Paul called Here Today, I think I'll pick that one. After all, it's about John...

Yeah, But Stuart died, and thus Baby in Black might be the suggestion of Astrid being the widow.

George's "All those years ago" was about John's death, but set to a very pop sounding melody.

That song always seemed inappropriate, seems like a better job could have been done.  He could write moving songs, its a pity he didnt here.
