I guess you haven't spent a lot of time on the beach in the midday sun. That sand burns...

Right. Unlike the pavement on Abbey Road.

It would make more sense that Sir Paul was worried about pieces of shells or maybe earlier he was climbing on rocks that were covered with barnacles.

But let's not make excuses for the "artist".

Yoko Ono added to Imagine writing credits

Image

More than 40 years after the song's release, Yoko Ono is receiving a songwriting credit on John Lennon's classic Imagine.

The surprise announcement was made at an annual meeting of the National Music Publishers Association in New York on Wednesday.

They explained the move by playing a clip of Lennon saying Imagine "should be credited as a Lennon-Ono song".

"A lot of it - the lyric and the concept - came from Yoko," he said.

"But those days I was a bit more selfish, a bit more macho, and I sort of omitted to mention her contribution.

"But it was right out of Grapefruit, her book. There's a whole pile of pieces about 'Imagine this' and 'Imagine that.'"

Imagine no possessions

How hard is that? Yoko must have been insincere.

I'd be lost without my toothbrush.

It's easy to imagine it, though. I'd be eating more mint. Is food a possession? Can I have my cake and eat it, too? oh wait. Can't make a cake without a cake pan.

Well, I can sorta imagine being stranded on a desert island... and the ensuing insanity. But, I think I'd need experience to 100% imagine it.... and be correct.

Btw, I'm sitting in a plane that has been taxiing for nearly an hour. I can barely imagine not being on this plane any more. Mostly just freaking that my connecting flight is supposed to take off in 8 minutes. As Ween would say, it's gonna be a long night.

It's easy if you try. Think Gilligan. Think Tom Hanks in Cast Away. Think Lord of the Flies. Think Swiss Family Robinson.

Yoko and Marie Antoinette would have made a great pair. Imagine a Bed-In with those two. (It's easy if you try)

Long, Long, Long
Is there a better George Harrison song? Great ending, too. One of the best endings on a Beatles song. And that's saying something.

Add to that the Lennon song originally titled "The Void", until John appropriated one of Ringo's malapropisms and renamed it "Tomorrow Never Knows".

If we are gonna start rewriting song credits how about Eleanor Rigby? Paul wrote the music which Martin scored and Paul, John, George, and a few others in the room wrote the lyrics. George in fact came up with the "Ahhh look at all the lonely people" part as an example.

Song writing a is a funny business.

Paul McCartney says “new version” of Beatles’ ‘Let It Be’ film is in the works

Image

The movie, which captured the making of The Beatles' final studio album, is set for a special anniversary re-release in 2020

Paul McCartney has indicated that the Beatles film Let It Be is set to be re-released in “a new version” to mark its fiftieth anniversary in 2020.
The film, which was originally released in 1970, documented the making of the legendary band’s final studio album ‘Let It Be’. Directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, the movie also includes the iconic footage from January 1969 of The Beatles’ final-ever public performance on the rooftop of Apple Corps HQ in central London.

McCartney has now disclosed that there are plans afoot to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the film in 2020 with a special DVD/Blu-Ray release. However, McCartney has said that the “latest gossip” is that the re-release will feature a new edit of Let It Be based on never-before-seen footage.
“I think there may be a new version of it,” McCartney told DJ Yannick Tremblay during an interview with Canada’s Radio X (which you can listen to below) this week. “That is kind of the latest gossip.”

“We keep talking about [a re-release],” he said. “We have meetings at Apple, you know, the original Beatles Apple. And it’s one of the things you never quite know what’s gonna happen with it. So there’s no [definite] story at the moment. But I keep saying ‘what’s gonna happen?’, because people ask about it.
“I tell you what I think it’s gonna happen,” McCartney continued. “I think there may be a new version of it. That’s kind of the latest gossip. There’s a lot of footage, and the original movie came out, and it was really sort of about the break-up of The Beatles. And so for me, it was a little sad, the movie.

“But I know people have been looking at the [unreleased] footage; there’s about 56 hours of footage. And someone was talking to me the other day and said: ‘The overall feeling is very joyous and very uplifting. It’s like a bunch of guys making music and enjoying it’, you know. So I think there is some talk about making a new movie, re-editing it from the same period, from the same footage.
“We can make a new film out of it. So who knows, that may be happening in a year or two.”
Let It Be has not officially been available to purchase in any format since the 1980s. Plans for a DVD re-release of the film were shelved in 2008 following a request from McCartney and Ringo Starr.
