1 john 1:8 9

white album explained (part 2)
  • birthday: paul's that guy who's like hey happy birthday and the other person is like ? it's not my birthday and paul is like oh haha i thought we had the same birthday weird :^)
  • yer blues: john wants drugs
  • mother nature's son: the most passively egotistical song a person could write (until let it be)
  • everybody's got something to hide: john takes paul's hello goodbye how to write a song advice but the end product wasn't as good
  • sexy sadie: even the instruments are dripping with sarcasm
  • helter skelter: PAULL IS!!!!! INTO SERIAL KILLERS!!!!!!!! (i bet your parent(s) said that at least once if they've heard this song)
  • long, long, long: is anything playing hang on *turns up volume* oh yeah it's just long, long, long
  • revolution 1: so weird bc it sounds like past john writing to future john complaining about like bagism, or like a song paul would write when he and john were doing that cute back and forth thing for a while
  • honey pie: when the beatles' time machine breaks down in the 1930's, they need to use the power of music to save the day. written + driected by paul mccartney, executive producer george martin
  • savoy truffle: proof that chocolate is both sexy and scary
  • cry baby cry: rich people doing casual rich people things like painting a painting and holding a seance
  • revolution 9: if......you become naked *crowd chants*
  • good night: really cute but kinda awkward if you're listening to the album at like 1pm
Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

“You know, it’s nice to talk about music occasionally, and remind people of what we really are. That was one of the big bugs about our previous tours - especially towards the last couple of years - in that we became a political thing. People forgot everything else.

We couldn’t go out on the road just like a pop band… like we were there just to sing a few tunes. It became all this bit about politics, and ‘what do you think of President de Gaulle’ and all that.

That’s why it’s nice to remind people that we are, basically, primarily musicians. And politicians, and everything else, secondly.” - George Harrison, NME, 1 November 1969 [x]
