WEDNESDAY CLUB - The Beatles - Your Mother Should Know

MIDWEEK CRISIS who can you ask, come to WEDNESDAY CLUB but don't ask me! ask your mum

An extra one this week in place of your usual Tuesday Blues !!!

Perfectly Loud

 THE BEATLES - Your Mother Should Know

When I'm 64

We could not wait
it was released  today
Gene skipped maths, period two
to go to Boots and  get a copy
a double EP mini album with booklet
It was the most anticipated event ever
he came back we both went to the prefects room

cigarettes were lit, a beer in hand
an excuses for English third period was arranged
we played it on our little Dansette player
goo goo g'joob,goo goo g'joob
you let your knickers down
Edgar Allen Po
your mother should know, your mother should know

roll up roll up for the Magical Mystery tour
it was as good or better than we expected
Gene kept repeating, perfectly loud., perfectly loud
the Beatles were perfectly good
Blue Jay Way
flying, the Beatles were flying
George is coming thru

I remeber pleading with my father to be able to watch it on TV

he relented, it was fabulous, the music was fabulous

Your father should know!

I have just watched it on TV a couple of days ago
it was hideous
I'm deflated, it was just awful
I'm crying, I'm crying
but seeing the Beatles was good
the music still stood up
your mother should know!
your mother should know!

I'm fucking 64!

You really thought it was hideous? I think it's great. Of course, it's just thrown together nonsense but it has such a fine period feel. And then there are the songs. Oh so beautiful. Some of the best music they ever did, IMO. Mind you, nothing is EVDER quite as magical as you remember it to be, is it? Is it? I'm pondering now.

SB - maybe I was a bit hard with 'hideous' but I think I was just a bit dissapointed as I rember how much I first enjoyed it...I still think 'A Hard Day's Night' film is brilliant but 'Help' was a shambles...saved by the music of course!!
