The White Album’s Anniversary

Standard

22 November 1968: The Beatles, better known as The White Album,  is realeased.

It’s one of The Beatles most famous album, and one of the most interesting to me. The recording sessions were characterized by discussions and conflicts among the member of the group, that led Ringo to abandon the band for some times; this is why many songs were not recorded by the whole group. It was a very difficult time for the Fabs, as it was their first album after Brian Espstein’s death and it was going to be published by their own label, Apple.

The number and quality of songs it’s probably due to the time spent in Rishikesh, India, where the band met Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and had the opportunity to experiment intense periods of meditation. Listening to the record you can see how each member of the band was starting to experiment and find his own style, which is something I really like about the album.

Lyrics: The Fool On The Hill

Standard

 

1967 – Lennon/McCartney

Magical Mystery Tour

Listen to the song here

Day after day alone on the hill
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him
They can see that he’s just a fool
And he never gives an answer

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning round

Well on the way, head in a cloud
The man of a thousand voices is talking perfectly loud
But nobody ever hears him
Or the sound he appears to make
And he never seems to notice

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning round

And nobody seems to like him
They can tell what he wants to do
And he never shows his feelings

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning round

Oh, oh, oh
Round ‘n round ‘n round ‘n round ‘n round

And he never listen to them
He knows that they’re the fools
They don’t like him

The fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning round

Oh, round ‘n round ‘n round ‘n round ‘n round
Oh!
