one of my favorite beatles songs

“Everyone knows now that “God Only Knows” was Paul’s favorite song—and not only his favorite Beach Boys song, but one of his favorite songs period. It’s the kind of thing people write in liner notes and say on talk shows. When people read it, they kind of look at that sentence and keep going. But think about how much it mattered to me when I first heard it there on Sunset Boulevard. I was the person who wrote “God Only Knows,” and here was another person—the person who wrote “Yesterday” and “And I Love Her” and so many other songs—saying it was his favorite. It really blew my mind. He wasn’t the only Beatle who felt that way. John Lennon called me after Pet Sounds—phoned me up, I think the British say—to tell me how much he loved the record.”

– Brian Wilson, 2016

(PAUL: “I played it to John so much that it would be difficult for him to escape the influence.”)

One of my favorite artists covering another one of my favorite artists. Doesn’t get much better than that. “All My Loving” is a song from the Beatles’ 1963 album ‘With the Beatles’. It was written by Paul McCartney but credited to Lennon-McCartney. Amy performed this acoustic cover at the Glastonbury Festival in 2004.

My earliest memory of my dad is probably of him somewhere in a garden covered in dirt, somewhere hot, a tropical garden, in jeans, khakis covered in dirt just continuously planting trees. I think that’s what I thought he did for the first seven years of my life. I was completely unaware that he had anything to do with music. I came home one day from school after being chased by kids singing ‘Yellow Submarine’, and I didn’t understand why. It just seemed surreal: Why are they singing that song to me? I came home and I freaked out on my dad: 'Why didn’t you tell me you were in The Beatles?’ And he said, 'Oh, sorry. Probably should have told you that.’

Favorite Song From Each Beatle: [¼]

↳ George Harrison: While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Album: The White Album – released November 22nd, 1968

“Like so many Beatles recordings, ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’, was to change considerably from conception to completion. On this first day the Beatles rehearsed several takes, all of which were taken away by George for home listening. But they also taped one proper take, still in the archive at Abbey Road. Or, rather, George Harrison taped it, for take one of ‘While my Guitar Gently Weeps’ was a solo vocal and acoustic guitar job (joined only near the end by an overdubbed organ) – and a very beautiful job it was too.

The very first eight-track Beatles recordings at Abbey Road were ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ overdubs, so the first task was to transfer the existing tracks onto another tape for use as eight-track. Then the overdubs could begin afresh, with – for this song – six vacant channels now available. The Beatles – or to be more precise George Harrison, for he worked alone on this night – spent the entire session attempting to record a backwards guitar solo for track five of the tape, as Brian Gibson recalls. “George particularly wanted to get the sound of a crying guitar but he didn’t want to use a wah-wah [tone] pedal, so he was experimenting with a backwards guitar solo. This meant a lot of time-consuming shuttling back and forth from the studio to the control room. We spent a long night trying to get it to work but in the end the whole thing was scrapped and it was around that time that Eric Clapton started to get involved with the song.”

And it was: the re-remade version of ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ was the one which appeared on The Beatles. It had a basic track of drums (Ringo), acoustic guitar and guide vocal (George), lead guitar (John) and, alternately, piano or organ (Paul).

By the end of the session a playback revealed that take 25 was the ‘best’ version, and the remaining overdubs – filling four more tracks – would be done on 6 September.

“Your Mother Should Know”.

This is one I did a few years ago but still remains one of my personal favorites. I always loved the illustrator John Austen’s style because it manages to feel old world and yet psychedelic too. In other words, it was perfect for this song and I hope I did his work and the music justice.

George Harrison appearing, unannounced, on stage with Monty Python during “The Lumberjack Song” (the single was produced by George) in New York City, 20 April 1976 (Photo courtesy Mojo4Music, photographed by Steve Morley)

“[On 20 April 1976] George, wearing the uniform of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, appears unannounced with his friends the Monty Python comedy team at New York’s City Center, at West 55th Street, during their performance of ‘The Lumberjack Song’. He had, in fact, been watching the first half of the show from the audience and went backstage at the interval. The Python team, starting a three-week run at the venue, invited him to join the cast during the song. ‘George is a lumberjack freak. He used that song on his tour to introduce the show,’ says Nancy Lewis, Monty Python’s American manager. (Incidentally, the former Beatle is such a fan of the song that, when George and Olivia go on holiday during the late Seventies and early Eighties, he will use the name 'Jack Lumber’ as an alias.)” - The Beatles Diary - Volume 2: After The Break-Up 1970-2001

Monty Python also appeared at the Concert for George on 29 November 2002: here.

“I first met Michael Palin and Terry Jones in 1972, I think. I met Eric Idle in 1975, at the California premierè of the Holy Grail film. And although that was the first time I’d ever met him, I felt like I’d known them all for years, because I’d watched all the programs and had had them on videotape. So it only took ten minutes before we were the best of friends.
I think after the Beatles, Monty Python was my favorite thing. It bridged the years when there was nothing really doing, and they were the only ones who could see that everything was a big joke.” - George Harrison, Rolling Stone, 19 April 1979

“Monty Python. Eric (Idle) is incredible. Michael Palin too. He is very funny. They all are. They filled that empty space for me; after 1968, 1969, they really kept me going, you know.” - George Harrison, I Me Mine

I'm Only Sleeping (Beatles)
Elliott Smith
I'm Only Sleeping (Beatles)

This is one of my favorite Elliott Smith rarities, every time I listen to it, it makes me smile from ear to ear, hearing him singing (and sometimes messing up) this Beatles song and when an audience member starts singing with him, he doesn’t get mad or stop playing he simply says, “You got to get closer to the mic.” It just warms my heart to hear him laugh and it just shows how sweet a human being Elliott was and it just makes me so happy to hear it.

anonymous asked:

I don't have anybody to discuss this, but the freaking white album by the beatles is going to always be my album number one hahaha have you listen "im so tired"?. It's a song that represent everybody when you are tired about everything, and want to fight the world. And the sgt. pepper's lonely hearts club band (album). Maybe i'm biases because i have grown up listen the beatles, but they always manage to surprise me, even in his underrated songs.

I know so many people in this fandom are aggressively anti Beatles anything BUT YOU CAME TO THE RIGHT PLACE MY BUDDY MY PAL. I fucking LOVE that album!! Most of my favorites come from that album: Dear Prudence, I’M SO TIRED, Blackbird, Helter Skelter, Happiness is a Warm Gun. When I was dealing with depression, Dear Prudence and Landslide by Fleetwood Mac helped me so much. I owe the white album everything. I’m not a huge sgt. pepper’s girl, I really love the Help! album though. That’s probably because my favorite Beatles song is from that album (I’ve Just Seen A Face)

anonymous asked:

post 3 selfies with your favourite 3 beatles songs and tag your 3 favourite blogs! pass it on!

oh god

selfies

i hate posting selfies because i look awful. but since you’re asking so nicely i won’t refuse.

Last movie you watched: Kingsman: Secret Service, I had been meaning to watch it for awhile and I finally got around to it, and damn it was worth it!

Last song you listened to: fuck, it was on the Beatles Channel on Sirius XM…. ‘I Feel Fine’ by the Beatles! my favorite band!

Last show you watched: I am currently rewatching Doctor Who

Last book you read: I finished  A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas the day it came out, and since then I have been trying to read the Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh and Truthwitch by Susan Dennard, but tbh I am still hung up on ACOWAR

Last thing you ate: Chocolate chip clif bar

If you could be anywhere right now, where would you be: I would love to be in Iceland with some of my friends on our dream vacation, or in Dublin where some other friends are right now.

First thing you would do with lottery money: donate half to breast cancer research, some to the non-profit camp I work for, splurge on a nice vacation to Bali or something, and buy an apartment.

Character you would hang out with for a day: gah thats a really hard one. Maybe Aelin Ashryver Galathynius from Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series because I secretly want to be a kickass fighter, and she could teach me. Maybe Percy Jackson, because he is hilarious. Kaz Brekker could show me a good time.

Favorite Song From Each Beatle: [2/4]

↳ Paul McCartney: Blackbird

Album: The White Album – released November 22nd, 1968

“While John was busy experimenting with sounds, Paul started and finished the recording of ‘Blackbird’, a lovely new composition which featured his own lead vocal, double-tracked in places via an overdub, accompanied by his acoustic guitar and a metronome gently ticking away in the background. It was a straightforward recording – no reductions necessary – and was perfected by the 32nd run through, just 11 of which were complete.

There was one other addition to the four-track tape: chirruping blackbirds, courtesy of “Volume Seven: Birds of Feather”, from the Abbey Road taped sound effects collection, the doors of the trusty green cabinet already being open during this evening for raidings by John Lennon. “I taped that on one of the first portable EMI tape-recorders, in my back garden in Ickenham, about 1965,” recalls Stuart Eltham.

“There are two recordings, one of the bird singing, the other making an alarm sound when I startled it.” Six mono remixes of the song were made before the session in studio two ended, the sixth being ‘best’.”

- The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions: The Official Story of the Abbey Road Years 1962-1970. Mark Lewisohn

George Harrison in the studio, 1970

“People used to like to call George Harrison ‘The Quiet Beatle.’ But I’d say instead that he was The Restless Beatle.

Harrison had no patience for people who wasted his time. He also shared his bandmates intense desire to change and grow – and nobody in rock and roll history changed or grew spiritually quite like George. The fruition of his personal and professional growth is on display in Apple’s new collection of George Harrison’s solo work. People will no doubt grouse that his post-Beatles catalogue doesn’t have the consistency of his Beatles work.

Something
The Beatles
Something

“While the Beatles were recording the White Album, George wrote a song called “Something,” which he released as his first A-side single with the Beatles. He told me, in a matter-of-fact way, that he had written it for me. I thought it was beautiful–and it turned out to be the most successful he ever wrote, with more than a hundred and fifty cover versions. His favorite was the one by James Brown. Frank Sinatra said he thought it was the best love song ever written. My favorite was the one by George Harrison, which he played to me in the kitchen at Kinfauns.”

-Pattie Boyd, “Wonderful Tonight”
