The Beatles

One of my favorite groups of all time, The Beatles. I remember listening to all the albums that my mom got in her album of the month club and The Beatles albums were always my favorites played over & over & over again, and then, when I was about 11,  we went visit my older, hipper cousins and I heard Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band for the first time and it was nirvana.  I believe it was the soundtrack album from the movie of the same title.  I rushed out and bought that album and felt so cool.  As I’ve gotten older and especially now, I realize just how talented and beyond extraordinary The Beatles were.

I love pretty much every single one of their songs, but my 2 most favorite are Norwegian Wood, sung by John Lennon and While My Guitar Gently Weeps by George Harrison.

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps” is a song from their 1968 double album The Beatles (also known as “the White Album”). It was written by George Harrison and the recording includes a lead guitar part played by Eric Clapton.

“Norwegian Wood” was one of the first Western pop songs to feature the sitar, an Indian instrument.  John Lennon wrote it about an affair he was having on his wife, Cynthia, which to me was/is a pretty sh*tty thing to do, but my God, what a song!  I don’t think of singer or songwriter or reason for or what the song is about when I hear it, all I think of is another world, another place, another time, another universe called music.  It’s simply beautiful, breathtaking and bliss for my senses.

I’m posting some videos below with the original versions and some really fabulous cover versions, imho.

I hope you get swept away and lost in their magic as much as I did and always do when I listen to them.  I would also love to know some of your favorites by The Beatles!   Enjoy!

Derangement

image

~
Excess in
moderations
tempting fate
not death, but
flights of fancy
higher highest high
touching heaven
rips the veil
break on thru to
the other side
mystic oceans
flames of color
inhale new life
sex lust like candy
bliss wicked holy
drowning dancing
drenching laughter
ride the waves
race the moon
Angels sun stars
dance out
rejoicing
Love’s song of Your
eternal name

Just sit

and listen

Just sit still

relax

let your worries

fade away

Just immerse

yourself

in this moment

this music

this man

this song

Just sit back

and listen,

that’s all,

just listen …

“Feel It Still”

Can’t keep my hands to myself
Think I’ll dust em off, put em back up on the shelf
In case my little baby girl is in need
Am I coming out of left field?Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks now
I been feeling it since 1966 now
Might be over now, but I feel it still
Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks now
Let me kick it like it’s 1986 now
Might be over now, but I feel it stillGot another mouth to feed
Leave her with a baby sitter, mama call the grave digger
Gone with the fallen leaves
Am I coming out of left field?Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks now
I been feeling it since 1966 now
Might of had your fill, but you feel it still
Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks now
Let me kick it like it’s 1986 now
Might be over now, but I feel it stillWe could fight a war for peace
Give in to that easy living
Goodbye to my hopes and dreams
Stop flipping for my enemies
We could wave until the walls come down
(I’m a rebel just for kicks now)
It’s time to give a little tip
Kids in the middle, move over till it falls
Don’t bother meIs it coming
Is it coming
Is it coming
Is it coming
Is it coming
Is it coming back?Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks, yeah
Your love is an abyss for my heart to eclipse now
Might be over now, but I feel it stillOoh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks now
I been feeling it since 1966 now
Might be over now, but I feel it still
Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks now
Let me kick it like it’s 1986 now
Might be over now, but I feel it still
Might of had your fill, but you feel it still

Be a lotus flower…

“As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world”

 

~ Buddha

I’ve changed

the old me is in the rearview

I’ve changed

the new me drags no chains

my heart ~ my thoughts

my decisions rearranged

I’m new

everyday,

from this day thru

I’m new
