anonymous asked:

heya, i know this'll be a load of hassle for you and i completely understand if you don't want to but could you explain the whole mclennon thing a bit more for me? i know they were obviously very close but i'm kinda new to it all so i'm still a bit clueless about things.

Once upon a time, in a land called Liverpool, lived 2 young boys named John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

John was a witty, funny guy, who didn’t like school and preferred to wander the streets with his school mates and play banjo. Paul was a smart guy who had really good grades at school and occasionally played piano with his father at home. Since his mother’s death, Paul became obsessed with music, exchanging the trumphet his father gave him for his birthday for a guitar. He really knew how to play it, and sometimes he showed his music skills to his friends at school. One of them, Ivan, saw his talent and thought it was a good idea to make him know another friend who was into music as well: John. They met on a hot, humid day in 1957 in a church hall, and it was love at first sight.

Paul thought John how to play the guitar, how to tune it, John thought Paul how to skip school and write songs together in his house when Jim was at work. For his birthday John got some money and he decided to spend it in Paris with Paul. They stayed one week, visiting the city, frequenting art cafés pretending to be artists, planning their future, and sleeping in one bed in an old motel. They loved to be alone just the two of them, and sometimes they felt reality and the pressure of their family too suffocating. ‘Playing the guitar is all very well, John, but you’ll never make a living at it.’ said Mimi. “You have to find a steady job.” said Jim. When they wrote ‘Oh Johnny Johnny!’ , one of the very first songs of them, they expressed their hopes and dreams to go away, cause Paul’s father and Mimi were too oppressive and they wanted to leave Liverpool and live happily just the two of them.

When fame arrived, they became closer than before. They wrote songs eyeball to eyeball in Jane Asher’s house, and while they pretended to adress those songs to their supposed girlfriends, they were nothing but love letters they sent each other. If I fell, a song they recorded while holding hands or Here there and everywhere, a song Paul wrote at John’s house while waiting for him to wake up. And Nowhere man, You’ve got to hide your love away...the list is too long to mention them all. They were the most important person in each other’s lives, and the songs they wrote were the proof. “John’s princess”: that’s how the people who worked at Abbey Road called Paul. Maybe they were joking, or maybe they listened to some weird kisses noises while they were busy recording ’Think for Yourself’. When the Beatles made a Shakespeare sketch on tv, Paul played Pyramus while John played Thisbe. After that, they both bought 2 cats naming them Pyramus and Thisbe: John gave Thisbe to Paul, and Paul gave Pyramus to John.

While the Beatlesmania hit the world and the Beatles too, John’s main problem was try to find someone who could keep his feet on the ground (Help!): a crying need for help only Paul could solve. They even had a secret code they used in public to talk to each other, the spider hand thing’. In Florida they ended up crying together one night confessing how much they loved each other. Cause they knew it, but they never had the courage to say it, and in that moment, in which the whole world seemed to love and want the Beatles more than anything else, what they really needed were just each other. When the ‘bigger than jesus’ issue emerged, John was on the verge of quitting. Before the interviews he cried, he couldn’t stand one more question about it without feeing guilty. And it was always Paul who helped him, talking for him, reassuring him, telling him it would pass.

The fame was too much and they decided to quit touring and spend some time alone. The Sgt. Pepper era arrived: John and Paul lived a couple of miles away from each other, they all bought new houses, had an indepent life, but they always spent time together and not just to write songs. In that period they were more closer than ever. One night they were in the studio and John took too much LSD and he went to the roof, scaring the rest of the band. Paul took him home, and for the first time he took LSD too, cause he wanted to be with John, always. In misery and in fear. And they had this incredible, fantastic trip together, looking in each other eyes for hours, and Paul helping John to not get hurt. Their relationship was at its peak. When Brian died, everyone was shocked. The first thing John did after he heard the news was looking for Paul, when they met they hugged tightly. They felt lost, but they still had each other. They went to India, thanks to George who introduced them to the Maharishi, a ‘guru’  John saw as someone who could give him the right answers. But it didn’t happen, it turned out that the Maharishi took advantage of the girls in India, and John and Paul, who went there to try find the meaning of life, ended up discussing about each other and their relationship. Friends? No, we’re more. Boyfriends? Absolutely not. How dare you, we are the Beatles! We are in the 60s, a homophobic society who would bury us alive if we’d admit we feel something for each other. Suddenly, the person who mattered the most for John took a step back, cause John exposed him. Because they never really talked about what they were for each other, and for a long time it was convenient for Paul, who could play and joke with it as much as he wanted. But John never took it as a joke, as something futile. It was important for him, and he suddenly felt betrayed.

When they went to New York for the Apple press conference, in the car that took them to the airport Paul brought a woman he had met: Linda Eastman. John felt annoyed and bothered enough to step in Abbey Road a week later with a new fiancé: Yoko Ono, the woman who soon started to replace John, talking for him, taking decisions for him, and keeping her eveywhere, even when Paul asked to write songs together. Paul couldn’t talk to John anymore. John always needed to be reassured, he constantly needed someone by his side who could stay with him 100%, and this time the partner wasn’t Paul anymore. And he literally started using her against Paul. “I don’t want to hold your hand anymore” he told Paul right after a session at Abbey Road. Paul was devasted, he left Abbey road crying while Mal brought him home. He wrote Oh!Darling, Let it be, The long and winding road, the whole album was filled with tragic love songs. But why? He was engaged with Linda! He loved her. Who he really was talking about? During a Let it be session, they confessed each other that all those tragic love songs made them look like they were lovers.

They married their partners both in May, first Paul, then a week later John. They split up, you would say, this is the end. Well it’s not, they never really quitted. Because they spent 5 years, from 1970 to 1975 writing songs to each other: ‘How do you sleep’ ‘Dear Friend’ ‘Too many people’,Jealous guy’, in which John admitted that he got mad at Paul in the late 60s cause he was jealous.

John separated from Yoko in 1975. He met May Pang, and from that moment he started calling Paul again, dreaming to meet him again. He asked everyone if it was a good move to do. He asked May Pang, who said “Yes! of course! do it!” he asked to Paul Simon who replied Come back to Paul!”. They met in Los Angeles on a weekend. John was playing when Paul unexpectedly stopped by. When they met the room hushed. They looked at each other and started off tentatively, with a handshake and an inside joke: “Valiant Paul McCartney, I presume?” Lennon said, referencing the Shakespeare sketch they did. McCartney immediately responded: “Sir Jasper Lennon, I presume?”.

They played together and it was like coming back to the old times. John felt an excitement he hadn’t felt for years. He was ready, he wanted to come back to him, to England, to Julian. But Yoko came back, and all the hopes and dreams suddenly fell away. In 1976 Paul was in New York and they saw each other again, he didn’t know that was the last time he ever saw John. In 1980 John felt depressed, cause Yoko was leaving him for another man, and he didn’t feel creative enough to write songs anymore. He wrote a desperateJust like starting over’ on the tune of the old 50s song he played with Paul, asking him to come back together. Paul was ready, John too. Destiny maybe not. John died, and left Paul full of regrets and words never said to him that he transformed into songs: ‘Here today’, ‘The lovers that never were’ ‘My brave face‘, just to mention some of them.

John is dead, Mclennon is over? Nope. Cause Paul will not just keep writing songs about John and their beautifully tragic love story, but he even got a song from John, from the afterlife. I’m not kidding. In 1981, Paul worked on his tribute album to John Lennon called Tug of War. One song in this album is Get It, to which he invited Carl Perkins. Carl loved the experience and the following morning he wrote My Old Friend for Paul in appreciation. In fact, he recounted to Paul that usually when he writes he needs a pen and a sheet of paper to record his thoughts on, but this time the words just stuck with him. He then played the song to Paul. And Paul, upon hearing the song, went out of the room crying. Linda who was left with Carl explained that Carl’s words hit Paul hard because John’s last words to Paul when they last met before he was shot down were, “”Think about me every now and then, old friend”, words, which Carl unknowingly put into this song. In an interview Carl Perkins said: “Paul was crying, tears were rolling down his pretty cheeks, and Linda said, ‘Carl, thank you so much.’ I said, ‘Linda, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to make you cry.’ She said, ‘But he’s crying, and he needed to. He hasn’t been able to really break down since that happened to John.’ And she put her arm around me and said, ‘But how did you know?’ I said, ‘Know what?’ She said, ‘There’s two people in the world that know what John Lennon said to Paul, the last thing he said to him. But now there’s three, and one of them’s you, you know it.’ I said, ‘Girl, you’re freaking me out! I don’t know what you’re talking about!’ She said that the last words that John Lennon said to Paul in the hallway of the Dakota building were, he patted him on the shoulder and said, ‘Think about me every now and then, old friend.’‘McCartney really feels that Lennon sent me that song, he really does.’”

Close friends to Paul revealed that he talks about John in the present tense, and sometimes he admits that when he is writing a song but can’t finish it, he asks John for help, feeling him by his side and always being able to correct it and finish it.

This is the story of two men who loved each other so deeply that they wrote the greatest songs of music history about it.

My opinion on John Lennon and Yoko Ono

Not long before his death john had a fight with yoko and screamed to her. I want to go back to Paul. Why? Why not Cynthia? Why did he say Paul, well I think that really it’s about that Paul was his first love. And it’s about the way yoko made him all loving her and he was like on a cloud but this cloud was lead by yoko and she lead him far away from Paul. Why? Because Paul was a threat to her. John would’ve always come back to Paul because that was all he knew. Paul was his home. Paul was the place where John would go and refer to. He was the place where john felt good. But yoko made him believe that she was in a way better than him. I personably think that his love for yoko was a passion. A passion is when you see only good in people and you think you are deeply in love but a passion dies. True love doesn’t. John broke up with yoko a few times. And before his death he was about to leave her. But you see if true love never dies it’s pretty clear that Paul was his true love. Why? Because despite being with yoko he was still writing many songs about Paul. And so did Paul. They were still a big part of each other. And I beleive that yoko was not a part of john.

Their train arrived in Hamburg at 6am and they moved into the Schloss Hotel in Tremsbuttel, 30 miles away from Hamburg and the fans. They slept until 1.30pm then made a balcony appearance for the several hundred fans gathered outside.

John visited Astrid Kirchherr, who gave him several letters written by Stuart Sutcliffe. […]

The Beatles played two sets at Ernst Merck Halle with the usual press conference in between. During one of the shows, John remarked to the crowd: “Don’t listen to our music. We’re terrible these days.”

Afterwards John and Paul went for a walk around the Reeperbahn after midnight, revisiting their old haunts.

jaytodd1129  asked:

so I already made this question to another great mclennon blog, but since you seem to be the Guru™ I was interested in knowing your opinion. It's kind of a dark thought, but we know how paul reacted to john's murder. I was wondering, if that man had gone after paul instead of john, how do you think john's reaction would've differed from paul's? what do you think would've happened? do you think john would've changed? they have such different personalities I can't help but wonder.

I think John would have had more regrets than Paul, cause he used to point the finger at Paul in the early 70s with How do you sleep for example, and all the bad stuff he said about him in the interviews.

I always believed that John was less angry than he appeared to be, he loved to show off, be the drama-queen just for the camera, and he was very sensitive, but he knew in his mind that he loved Paul.

About How do you sleep he said ‘We are okay with it, both me and paul, and that’s what is important’. Then later, about 1980 he said that the song was about himself really, and not Paul.

Since John used to shout and react very quickly at things and later regret it, I think he would have been more devasted than Paul, cause he used to say lots of bad stuff about him, even if later they made peace.

We all know that John, down in his heart, wanted to come back to Paul, and loved him, but there was so much resentment between them that it was hard to forget everything quickly as if nothing happened. Also, John was too proud to wake up one morning and say “ok, it’s time to say Paul that I love him, I care about him, and I want to come back writing with him.”  It took them 10 years to connect again, and evaluate the possibility to come back together, they both wanted it, John passed 5 years asking people what he had to do with Paul cause he desperately wanted to come back to him, and in 1980 he was ready to do it. If Paul had died, he would have been devasted.

While Paul was always more careful, and always tried to reconnect with him, the man who felt betrayed was John, so he had much more reason to be angry at Paul, and that’s why I believe he would have been more devasted if Paul had died, cause he suddenly realised that all the stuff they argued about was futile and what was really important was their relationship, and how much they loved each other, and he would have cried buckets knowing the chance he had lost.  After 50 years, Paul can’t stop crying while singing Here Today, I can’t imagine what John would do today without Paul.

maccadaddy  asked:

hey, its me!! the obsessed one about your blog i just wanted so ask why no one talks about john's "starting over"??? ITS FILLED WITH MCLENNON CLUES!! i have a theory but im kinda embarassed to share it, so i wanted to ask about your thoughts on it!!

‘Just like starting over’ is my favourite mclennon song!!!!

Let examine the lyrics:

Our life together is so precious together,

We have grown - we have grown: John analyzes the life he and Paul both had in 1980, comparing it with their lives in the 60s when they were young.

Although our love is still special

Let’s take our chance and fly away somewhere alone: john was already alone with Yoko…what sense it would have if the song was for yoko? none!! In this line he’s talking to Paul, again.

It’s been so long since we took the time

No-one’s to blame,

I know time flies so quickly,

But when I see you darling: Darling, oh! darling…remember you something?a song maybe…written by paul for John in 1969. yes, that one.

It’s like we both are falling in love again. Again. If john was already with yoko..what’s the sense of this AGAIN? This line is for Paul. They split up, they divorced, but John wanted to come back to Paul in 1980. And he was singing it in this song. Let’s fall in love again.

It’ll be just like starting over - starting over.

Everyday we used to make it love,

Why can’t we be making love nice and easy,

It’s time to spread our wing’s and fly:Wings…remind you of a band?

Don’t let another day go by my love: Another day, a song written by Paul. Coincidences? No! ‘Cause they talked to each other through their songs.

It’ll be just like starting over - starting over: John wanted to come back to Paul, and he’s singing it in this song.

Why don’t we take off alone,

Take a trip far, far away,

We’ll be together on our own again: Again, John was already alone with Yoko. He wanted to come back to Paul, just the two of them…ALONE. no kids, no wives..just the two of them.

Like we used to in the early days. Paris? Scotland? The early days..when they spent time just the two of them, alone.

Well, well, well darling: Again, Oh! darling.

It’s been so long since we took the time: It’s been so long since they took the time…’cause he’s talking to Paul. not yoko.

No-one’s to blame,

I know time flies so quikly,

But when I see you darling,

It’s like we both are falling in love again,

It’ll be just like starting over - starting over. 

Everyday we used to make it love,

Why can’t we be making love nice and easy,

It’s time to spread our wing’s and fly,

Don’t let another day go by my love,

It’ll be just like starting over - starting over.

John wanted to come back to Paul, start again and write again with him, he would have done it in 1981, Paul said it once in an interview. Also, if you go on youtube and look for Just like starting over Tapes, you’ll hear amazing things!! John changing the lyrics at ‘nice and easy’ and singing

  ‘The time has come the walrus said

 for you and me to stay in bed again

 it’ll be just like starting over’


That’s why John had those tapes written ‘For Paul’ with Free as a bird and ‘Real love’, those songs were written for Paul, ‘cause John wanted to come back to him.

 He was waiting the right time, the time had come. (but then a fool shot him and the dream was over.)

The End

I don’t know where this came from originally (it popped up on my fb), but it’s gold! Kudos to whoever wrote it!

if you think that the songs john wrote in 1980 wasn’t for paul but for yoko, remind yourself that in 1980 yoko was ready to divorce from john ‘cause she had another relationship with Sam Havadtoy, the man that will get into John’s house the day after his murder, and will live with yoko for 20 years. Their marriage was over, and john knew it, he was ready to come back to paul bye.
