YELLOW SUBMARINE 

And our friends are all aboard
Many more of them live next door
And the band begins to play
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine …. 

Full speed ahead Mr. Boatswain, full speed ahead
Full speed ahead it is, Sergeant.
Cut the cable, drop the cable
Aye, Sir, aye
Captain, captain …

 

Partial Lyrics … The Beatles

WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS

I went to the movies yesterday to see “Kubo“.

I was amazingly pleased by the whole production.

For those who like action, adventure, animated stories, this is a good one.

As the movie ended, I was more than pleased to hear the first notes of a familiar song which I couldn’t place initially.

What a pleasant surprise!

It was a cover of ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps‘, very well done.

But, who was singing this version?

Out comes the cell phone and the Schazam app.

Regina Spektor and Dario Marianelli.

I had to look it up and here’s what I found.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Prince’s Legendary Solo On “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”

The body of Prince Rogers Nelson died today and the universe lost a master whose music transcended the Earthly bounds of genre and gender.

The man put it best when he described himself by saying: “My name is Prince and I am funky.”

Anyone who tries to quantify his musical achievements or explain his abilities in a single tribute would be a fool for the attempt. But one way to understand the power of a true genius is seeing how brightly they shine when in the presence of other legends.

In the clip below, Prince goes supernova.  

Back in 2004, The Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame paid tribute to Beatle George Harrison with a performance of his classic, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

Recorded in 1968 for the Beatles’ “White Album,” the track was a rarity for the Fab Four because it featured a guest artist, Harrison’s friend Eric Clapton, on lead guitar.

For the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame’s tribute performance, it assembled a super-group featuring Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne from Electric Light Orchestra, Harrison’s son Dhani and on lead guitar, playing Clapton’s role, was Prince.

HEARD IT TODAY … FOR THE FIRST TIME … LOVE IT

The longest-running, most successful partnership in the history of rock takes flight anew as Carlos Santana collaborates with the legendary Clive Davis on the brand new album Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time.

Working from the collective encyclopedic knowledge of rock possessed by the album’s producers, Carlos, Clive Davis, Howard Benson and Matt Serletic, a list of guitar-centric titles was devised and a Who’s Who of guest vocalists were invited to perform on every track alongside Carlos and his full-time band.

Santana covers The Beatles’ ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’

In honor of George Harrison’s birthday, recent premiere and encore presentations of “The Night That Changed America: The Grammy’s Salute to The Beatles” featuring George Harrison’s composition of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps;” Carlos Santana decided to cover that same song on his 2010 album, Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time.

Santana’s sensual version features India Arie on vocals and Yo-Yo Ma on cello. Harrison’s album track from The White Album features Eric Clapton on guitar.

Indie and pop music reviewer blogger, Cory Zechmann of “Silence No Good,” had this to say about Santana’s cover version of the 1968 Beatles classic:

I’ve heard quite a few Beatles cover songs before, but this one really does George Harrison’s original justice. I’ve only listened to a couple tracks off Santana’s album, Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time, but his rendition of this classic takes it.

You can’t beat a Beatle’s song redone by a master guitar player + beautiful vocals by India Arie — oh, and some damn good cello playin’.”

Synopsis

John Lennon was born on October 9, 1940, in Liverpool, England.

He met Paul McCartney in 1957 and invited McCartney to join his music group. They eventually formed the most successful songwriting partnership in musical history. Lennon left the Beatles in 1969 and later released albums with his wife, Yoko Ono, among others. On December 8, 1980, he was killed by a crazed fan named Mark David Chapman.

~Early Life~

Famed singer-songwriter John Winston Lennon was born on October 9, 1940, in Liverpool, Merseyside, England, during a German air raid in World War II.

When he was 4 years old, Lennon’s parents separated and he ended up living with his Aunt Mimi. Lennon’s father was a merchant seaman. He was not present at his son’s birth and did not see a lot of his son when he was small.

Lennon’s mother, Julia, remarried, but visited him and Mimi regularly. She taught Lennon how to play the banjo and the piano and purchased his first guitar. Lennon was devastated when Julia was fatally struck by a car driven by an off-duty police officer in July 1958.

Her death was one of the most traumatic events in his life.

As a child, Lennon was a prankster and he enjoyed getting in trouble. As a boy and young adult,he  enjoyed drawing grotesque figures and cripples. Lennon’s school master thought that he could go to an art school for college, since he did not get good grades in school, but had artistic talent.

~Forming the Beatles~

Elvis Presley’s explosion onto the rock music scene inspired a 16-year-old Lennon to create the skiffle band called the Quarry Men, named after his school. Lennon met Paul McCartney at a church fete on July 6, 1957. He soon invited McCartney to join the group, and the two eventually formed one of the most successful songwriting partnerships in musical history.

McCartney introduced George Harrison to Lennon the following year, and Harrison and art college buddy Stuart Sutcliffe also joined Lennon’s band. Always in need of a drummer, the group finally settled on Pete Best in 1960.

The first recording they made was Buddy Holly’s “That’ll be the Day” in 1958. In fact, it was Holly’s group, the Crickets, that inspired the band to change its name. Lennon would later joke that he had a vision when he was 12 years old — a man appeared on a flaming pie and said unto them, “From this day on, you are Beatles with an ‘A.'”

The Beatles were discovered by Brian Epstein in 1961 at Liverpool’s Cavern Club, where they were performing on a regular basis. As their new manager, Epstein secured a record contract with EMI. With a new drummer, Ringo Starr (Richard Starkey), and George Martin as producer, the group released their first single, “Love Me Do,” in October 1962. It peaked on the British charts at No. 17.

Lennon wrote the group’s follow-up single, “Please Please Me,” inspired primarily by Roy Orbison, but also fed by Lennon’s infatuation with the pun in Bing Crosby’s famous lyrics, “Oh, please, lend your little ears to my pleas,” from the song “Please.” The Beatles’ “Please Please Me” topped the charts in Britain. The Beatles went on to become the most popular band in Britain with the release of such mega-hits as “She Loves You” and “I Want To Hold Your Hand.”

Lennon married Cynthia Powell in August 1962. The couple had one son together, Julian, who was named after Lennon’s mother. Cynthia was forced to keep a very low profile during Beatlemania. She and Lennon divorced in 1968. He remarried the following year, on March 20, 1969, to Japanese avant-garde artist Yoko Ono, whom he had met at the Indica Gallery in November 1966.

If I had to choose one of John’s songs as my favorite one I would be at a loss. The man was so talented and had a great way with words, music and messages. 

I choose this one because I think this song has become a timeless, universal song which will be applied to many times in history.
