Stones And Beatles Songs

Posted on  by admin
By Elvis Costello. I first heard of the Beatles when I was nine years old. I spent most of my holidays on Merseyside then, and a local girl gave me a bad publicity shot of them with their names scrawled on the back.

This was 1962 or ’63, before they came to America. The photo was badly lit, and they didn’t quite have their look down; Ringo had his hair slightly swept back, as if he wasn’t quite sold on the Beatles haircut yet. I didn’t care about that; they were the band for me. The funny thing is that parents and all their friends from Liverpool were also curious and proud about this local group. Prior to that, the people in show business from the north of England had all been comedians. The Beatles even recorded for Parlophone, which was a comedy label, as if they believed they might be a passing novelty act. I was exactly the right age to be hit by them full-on. My experience — seizing on every picture, saving money for singles and EPs, catching them on a local news show — was repeated over and over again around the world. It wasn’t the first time anything like this had happened, but the Beatles achieved a level of fame and recognition known previously only to Charlie Chaplin, Brigitte Bardot and Elvis Presley, along with a little of the airless exclusivity of astronauts, former presidents and other heavyweight champions. Every record was a shock. Compared to rabid R&B evangelists like the Rolling Stones, the Beatles arrived sounding like nothing else.

They had already absorbed Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers and Chuck Berry, but they were also writing their own songs. They made writing your own material expected, rather than exceptional. And John Lennon and Paul McCartney were exceptional songwriters; McCartney was, and is, a truly virtuoso musician; George Harrison wasn’t the kind of guitar player who tore off wild, unpredictable solos, but you can sing the melodies of nearly all of his breaks. Most important, they always fit right into the arrangement. Ringo Starr played the drums with an incredibly unique feel that nobody can really copy, although many fine drummers have tried and failed. Most of all, John and Paul were fantastic singers. Lennon, McCartney and Harrison had stunningly high standards as writers. Imagine releasing a song like “Ask Me Why” or “Things We Said Today” as a B side. They made such fantastic records as “Paperback Writer” b/w “Rain” or “Penny Lane” b/w “Strawberry Fields Forever” and only put them out as singles. These records were events, and not just advance notice of an album. Then they started to really grow up: simple love lyrics to adult stories like “Norwegian Wood,” which spoke of the sour side of love, and on to bigger ideas than you would expect to find in catchy pop lyrics. They were the first group to mess with the aural perspective of their recordings and have it be more than just a gimmick. Engineers like Geoff Emerick invented techniques that we now take for granted, in response to the group’s imagination.

Before the Beatles, you had guys in lab coats doing recording experiments, but you didn’t have rockers deliberately putting things out of balance, like a quiet vocal in front of a loud track on “Strawberry Fields Forever.” You can’t exaggerate the license that this gave to everyone from Motown to Jimi Hendrix. My absolute favorite albums are Rubber Soul and Revolver. On both records you can hear references to other music — R&B, Dylan, psychedelia — but it’s not done in a way that is obvious or dates the records. When you picked up Revolver, you knew it was something different. Heck, they are wearing sunglasses indoors in the picture on the back of the cover and not even looking at the camera . and the music was so strange and yet so vivid. If I had to pick a favorite song from those albums, it would be “And Your Bird Can Sing” . no, “For No One” . and so on, and so on. Their breakup album, Let It Be, contains songs both gorgeous and jagged. I suppose ambition and human frailty creeps into every group, but they delivered some incredible performances. I remember going to Leicester Square and seeing the film of Let It Be in 1970. I left with a melancholy feeling. Someone recently gave me an assembly of newsreel footage, which illustrates how swiftly the band was drained of the bright and joyful wit presented as a public face. In one early sequence, McCartney tells reporters that they will soon appear on The Ed Sullivan Show and then points into the camera: “There he is, hi, Ed, and Mrs. Ed,” chimes Ringo. It might have been practiced, but it plays entirely off-the-cuff. Just a year later, they are seen at a press conference in Los Angeles for their final tour.

Suits and ties are a thing of the past. Staring down a series of dismal attempts at provocation from the press corps, they look exhausted and disenchanted. When probed by one blowhard to respond to a Time magazine critique that “Day Tripper” was about a prostitute and “Norwegian Wood” about a lesbian, McCartney responds, “We were just trying to write songs about prostitutes and lesbians.” In the laughter that follows, he mutters, “Cut.” They were giving the impression that the game was up, but in truth, they were just getting started.

Main songs[edit]

The word “Beatlesque” has been in the dictionary for quite a while now. You hear them in Harry Nilsson’s melodies; in Prince’s Around the World in a Day; in the hits of ELO and Crowded House and in Ron Sexsmith’s ballads.

You can hear that Kurt Cobain listened to the Beatles and mixed their ideas with punk and metal. They can be heard in all sorts of one-off wonders from the Knickerbockers’ “Lies” and the Flamin’ Groovies’ “Shake Some Action.” The scope and license of the White Album has permitted everyone from OutKast to Radiohead to Green Day to Joanna Newsom to roll their picture out on a broader, bolder canvas.

  • Now, I’ll admit that I’ve stolen my share of Beatles licks, but around the turn of the Nineties, I got to co-write 12 songs with Paul McCartney and even dared to propose that he too reference some of the Beatles’ harmonic signatures — as, astonishingly, he had made up another musical vocabulary for Wings and during his solo career.
  • In 1999, a little time after Linda McCartney’s passing, Paul performed at the Concert for Linda, organized by Chrissie Hynde.
  • During the rehearsal, I was singing harmony on a Ricky Nelson song with him, and Paul called out the next tune: “All My Loving.”.
  • I said, “Do you want me to take the harmony line the second time round?” And he said, “Yeah, give it a try.” I’d only had 35 years to learn the part.
  • There was inevitably a poignant feeling to this song, written long before he had even met Linda:.
  • Close your eyes and I’ll kiss youTomorrow I’ll miss youRemember I’ll always be true.
  • At the show, it was very different.
  • The second Paul sang the opening lines, the crowd’s reaction was so intense that it all but drowned the song out.
  • It was very thrilling, but also disconcerting.
  • Perhaps I understood in that moment one of the reasons why the Beatles had to stop performing.
  • The songs weren’t theirs anymore.
  • They belonged to everybody.
  • This is an updated version of an essay that appeared in RS 946.

Other released songs[edit]

In addition to their main catalogue, over 100 songs that were recorded by the group have been released. Four songs have only appeared in two of the groups' films: one in Magical Mystery Tour (1967) and three in Let It Be (1970). The first release of new recordings was Live at the BBC in 1994, which features live performances of mostly cover songs that were recorded on various BBC Light Programme radio shows between 1963 and 1965.[96] Further recordings from these shows were released on On Air – Live at the BBC Volume 2 in 2013.[97]The Beatles Anthology project in the 1990s featured rarities, outtakes and live performances across their entire career, along with the reunion songs "Free as a Bird" and "Real Love", which were recorded as demos by Lennon before his death in 1980 and completed by the surviving Beatles.[41] Further recordings have been released on various compilation albums and deluxe editions.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^These consist of "Dig It", the instrumental "Flying", "Maggie Mae" and "What Goes On".[10]
  2. ^This was due to an agreement the two made before the Beatles became famous.[11]
  3. ^Magical Mystery Tour was released as a double extended play in the UK, featuring only the songs from the film, and a standard LP in the US, featuring the films tracks and the group's five other 1967 singles.[44] Eventually (in November 1976), the US version was released in the UK.[45] When remastering the Beatles' music on CD in the 1980s, EMI adopted the US LP version rather than the UK EP.[46]
  4. ^ abLead vocal credits per Castleman and Podrazik's 1976 book All Together Now.[47]
  5. ^"Across the Universe" originally appeared on the charity album No One's Gonna Change Our World in 1969; this version appears on Past Masters (1988).[48] A different mix, with orchestral and choral overdubs by Phil Spector, appears on Let It Be (1970).[49]
  6. ^ abAlso included on Yellow Submarine (1969).[54]
  7. ^Originally released in 1969 as a single (with "Get Back") and credited to "the Beatles with Billy Preston".[66]
  8. ^Originally released in 1969 as a single (with "Don't Let Me Down") and credited to "the Beatles with Billy Preston".[66] This version appears on Past Masters (1988).[51] A different mix produced by Phil Spector was subsequently released a year later on Let It Be (1970).[70]
  9. ^Originally recorded by Billy J. Kramer with the Dakotas and released as a single (with "Bad to Me") in 1963.[73]
  10. ^First recorded and released by the Rolling Stones, the Beatles' own version appeared on With the Beatles shortly after.[75]
  11. ^The single version of "Let It Be", produced by George Martin, was released in March 1970,[81] and appears on Past Masters (1988).[51] The album version, produced by Phil Spector, features an additional guitar solo and minor differences in the orchestral sections, appears on Let It Be (1970).[82]
  12. ^Three different versions of "Love Me Do" exist. The first version, recorded on 6 June 1962 with Pete Best on drums,[83] appears on Anthology 1 (1995).[84] The second version, recorded on 4 September 1962 with Ringo Starr on drums,[85] was released as a UK single in 1962 and appears on Past Masters (1988).[51] The third version, recorded on 11 September 1962 with session drummer Andy White on drums and Starr on tambourine,[86] was released as a US single in 1962 and appears on Please Please Me (1963).[87]
  13. ^The single version of "Revolution" has a hard rock style[30] that is in a higher key and faster tempo than "Revolution 1".[90]
  14. ^"Revolution 1" has a more blues-influenced style and relaxed tempo than "Revolution". It also contains "shoo-bee-do-wop" backing vocals that are reminiscent of doo-wop music.[91]
  15. ^"Revolution 9" is an avant-garde sound collage[92] that evolved from take 20 of "Revolution 1". It features numerous sound effects, tape loops and overdubs that were recorded and compiled over several sessions almost exclusively by Lennon and Yoko Ono, although Harrison provided assistance for spoken overdubs.[93]
