Me & My Monkey, Antwerp
It happened but now its over…. I was not familiar with a handbell, but I looked it up.
I can see how it could be a handbell. Excellent song either way! And still he complained about not been given the A sides. It is the balance that makes the Beatles so interesting. My teenage son can dig the Beatles and so can Grandma. Paul and John were a perfect balance, and when they split they lost that synergy. Tobias, you need to put that crack pipe down, LOL! Lennon was pretty capable of doing fruity and McCartney wrote just as many rockers as Lennon, perhaps more. Ever thought that Grandma might prefer the rockers?
The confessions of a reluctant vivisector.
I see some jealousy here. John was the best composer of all for me, such avant garde. Get over it! Every time I see you, making much negative comments about John. And that makes me really angry. In the DVD you can see how concentrated the band was trying not to screw up. Even Paul Gilbert was havng a hard time! This was before he quit during the White Album sessions. But he said that each take that John and George kept turning the volume on their guitars higher and higher to an ear blistering height, and that Paul could barely even hear his own bass.
Then he ended up sitting alone after the band left and over dubbed the bass part on his own …with the studio engineers present of course. Great energy on this one. Very committed vocals on what is ultimately nonsense, but by the end of the song I believe him. A good rocker for John. And if you play guitar like I do, a great song to shake out the ya-yas to.
The song is complete as-is but there seems to be a lot of room to have additional improv. I was a big Monkees fan back in the day, too. Still am, truth be told. The Beatles at the top of their game… Sweet, sweet track. My favorite part: when the bass comes back in. Great song, great performance, great record. I wish there was a video of The Beatles playing this ….
It took me a longtime to figure out the rhythm of the intro—the second bass drum beat is on 1 and the first guitar chord is on the upbeat of 2. That rhythmic dislocation got my attention and made the song into one of my favourites. Every time i listen it jangles some obscure brain function into an excited state. At last some people talking about that amazing intro! Came here just to see if someone had some more infos, who a Beatle or producer?
When was it recorded? Fantastic track on a fantastic album. I could see how witty John would take the Mickey Out of the Monkees. I have the mono box sets; CD and vinyl. The sound of Paul banging on that bell is incredible, but most especially on the mono vinyl. It really makes you sit up and take notice. Even though John makes it very hard, I really do feel sorry for him. Everybody is uneasy around him because he is in such a beautiful and real relationship, yet they both escape into heroin at the same time. Yes, that Yoko was really good for him.
Of course this song is a reference to his habit. I never thought of it until just now, but I think the White Album itself is a reference to heroin. Actually, I have never thought of the White Album cover as being an artistic reference to heroin but you know what? I think there may be something in that. Maharishi sometimes quoted a traditional Vedic metaphor about the mind naturally wandering like a monkey.
You get i the monkey to calm down by putting some food out, something the monkey enjoys, which keeps it from wandering without having to use force.
In the same way the wandering mind will be calmed by giving it a taste of silence and bliss in mediation, which then calms the mind without having to force it. Yes That how the song really works for me… About the joy transparency transcendence That comes from taming channelizing The monkey mind. Talks all about meditation. That was just a sort of nice line that I made into a song. It was about me and Yoko. Everybody seemed to be paranoid except for us two, who were in the glow of love.
Everything is clear and open when you're in love. Everybody was sort of tense around us: you know, 'What is she doing here at the session? Why is she with him?

He was getting into harder drugs than we'd been into and so his songs were taking on more references to heroin. Until that point we had made rather mild, oblique references to pot or LSD. Now John started talking about fixes and monkeys and it was a harder terminology which the rest of us weren't into. We were disappointed that he was getting into heroin because we didn't really see how we could help him. We just hoped it wouldn't go too far. In actual fact, he did end up clean but this was the period when he was on it.
It was a tough period for John, but often that adversity and that craziness can lead to good art, as I think it did in this case. Latest Comments.
