Yellow Submarine

  1. 02:39 Yellow Submarine (John Lennon and Paul McCartney) - Remastered 2009 - 01.06.1966

    PAUL 1966: 'It's a happy place, that's all.
    You know, it was just… We were trying to write a children's song.
    That was the basic idea.
    And there's nothing more to be read into it than there is in the lyrics of any children's song.'

    JOHN 1972: 'Paul wrote the catchy chorus.
    I helped with the blunderbuss bit.'

    JOHN 1980: ''Yellow Submarine' is Paul's baby.
    Donovan helped with the lyrics.
    I helped with the lyrics too.
    We virtually made the track come alive in the studio, but based on Paul's inspiration.
    Paul's idea.
    Paul's title… written for Ringo.'

    PAUL 1984: 'I wrote that in bed one night.
    As a kid's story.
    And then we thought it would be good for Ringo to do.'

    PAUL circa-1994: 'I was laying in bed in the Asher's garret, and there's a nice twilight zone just as you're drifting into sleep and as you wake from it – I always find it quite a comfortable zone.
    I remember thinking that a children's song would be quite a good idea… I was thinking of it as a song for Ringo, which it eventually turned out to be, so I wrote it as not too rangey in the vocal.
    I just made up a little tune in my head, then started making a story – sort of an ancient mariner, telling the young kids where he'd lived.
    It was pretty much my song as I recall… I think John helped out.
    The lyrics got more and more obscure as it goes on, but the chorus, melody and verses are mine.'

    GEORGE 1999: 'Paul came up with the concept of 'Yellow Submarine.' All I know is just that every time we'd all get around the piano with guitars and start listening to it and arranging it into a record, we'd all fool about.
    As I said, John's doing the voice that sounds like someone talking down a tube or ship's funnel as they do in the merchant marine.
    (laughs) And on the final track there's actually that very small party happening! As I seem to remember, there's a few screams and what sounds like small crowd noises in the background.'

  2. 03:24 Only a Northern Song (George Harrison) - Remastered 2009 - 20.04.1967

    GEORGE 1980: ''Northern Song' was a joke relating to Liverpool, the Holy City in the North of England.
    In addition, the song was copyrighted Northern Songs LTD, which I don't own.'

    GEORGE 1999: 'It was at the point that I realized Dick James had conned me out of the copyrights for my own songs by offering to become my publisher.
    As an 18 or 19-year-old kid, I thought, 'Great, somebody's gonna publish my songs!' But he never said, 'And incidentally, when you sign this document here, you're assigning me the ownership of the songs,' which is what it is.
    It was just a blatant theft.
    By the time I realized what had happened, when they were going public and making all this money out of this catalog, I wrote 'Only A Northern Song' as what we call a 'piss-take,' just to have a joke about it.'

  3. 02:10 All Together Now (Paul McCartney – John Lennon and Paul McCartney) - Remastered 2009 - 12.05.1967

    JOHN 1971: 'I enjoyed it when football crowds in the early days would sing 'All Together Now.''

    PAUL circa-1994: 'When they were singing a song, to encourage the audience to join in they'd say 'All together now,' so I just took it and read another meaning into it, of – we are all together now.
    So I used the dual meaning.
    It's really a children's song.
    I had a few young relatives and I would sing songs for them.'

  4. 03:11 Hey Bulldog (John Lennon and Paul McCartney) - Remastered 2009 - 11.02.1968

    JOHN 1980: 'It's a good sounding record that means nothing.'

    PAUL circa-1994: 'I remember 'Hey Bulldog' as being one of John's songs and I helped him finish it off in the studio, but it's mainly his vibe.
    There's a little rap at the end between John and I, we went into a crazy little thing at the end.
    We always tried to make every song different because we figured, 'Why write something like the last one? We've done that.' We were on a ladder so there was never any sense of stepping down a rung, or even staying on the same rung, it was better to move one rung ahead.'

    GEORGE 1999: 'We now have an unreleased video of 'Hey Bulldog,' as you know.
    When we were in the studio recording 'Bulldog,' apparently it was at a time when they needed some footage for something else, some other record (Lady Madonna), and a film crew came along and filmed us.
    Then they cut up the footage and used some of the shots for something else.
    But it was Neil Aspinall who found out that when you watched and listened to what the original thing was, we were recording 'Bulldog.' This was apparently the only time we were actually filmed recording something, so what Neil did was, he put (the unused footage) all back together again and put the 'Bulldog' soundtrack onto it, and there it was!'

  5. 06:25 It's All Too Much (George Harrison) - Remastered 2009 - 02.06.1967

    GEORGE 1980: ''It's All Too Much' was written in a childlike manner from realizations that appeared during and after some LSD experiences and which were later confirmed in meditation.'

    GEORGE 1999: 'I just wanted to write a rock 'n roll song about the whole psychedelic thing of the time – 'Sail me on a silver sun/ Where I know that I am free/ Show me that I'm everywhere/ And get me home for tea.' (laughs) Because you'd trip out, you see, on all this stuff, and then whoops! you'd just be back having your evening cup of tea! 'Your long blond hair/ And your eyes of blue' – that was all just this big ending we had, going out.
    And as it was in those days, we had the horn players just play a bit of trumpet voluntarily, and so that's how that 'Prince Of Denmark' bit was played (in the fade-out).
    And Paul and John just came up with and sang that lyric of 'your eyes of blue.''

  6. 03:51 All You Need Is Love (John Lennon – John Lennon and Paul McCartney) - Remastered 2009 - 25.06.1967

    PAUL 1967: 'We had been told we'd be seen recording it by the whole world at the same time.
    So we had one message for the world – Love.
    We need more love in the world.'

    PAUL circa-1994: ''All You Need Is Love' was John's song.
    I threw in a few ideas, as did other members of the group, but it was largely ad libs like singing 'She Loves You' or 'Greensleeves' or silly little things like that at the end, and we made those up on the spot.'
