A little know fact about me is that I got my Xixax handle from a certain Beatles song.

wow, this is pretty cool. can you give me any background on it? i've taken a little music theory, so i doubt i will grasp most of it, but still interesting to read.

read a little bit about tonics and just play the songs as you read the articles...it's actually a good way to learn pieces of music theory you haven't picked up yet by looking up what he's talking about and finding the example in the song.

yeah, but similar insights can be written on most good pop bands.  Beatles did not have chord progressions that were especially groundbreaking or note-worthy--except for Michelle.  That song went from diminished minor 7 to major and back again, like a snake!

I just want to point out how fantastic John Lennon's Plastic Ono Band album is.  If you do buy the cd though, take off the 2 bonus tracks (Power to the People & Do the Oz) since they ruin the mood of the album.

agreed, but on its own, do the oz kicks ass. power to the people kind of blows.

anybody buy/know about yoko ono's plastic ono band? they both released albums entitled "plastic ono band" on the same day with these covers.

john's plastic ono band.


yoko's plastic ono band.

john featured classic john songwriting, yoko featured really cool backing tracks with her doing primal screams. needless to say, when fans bought yoko's album expecting john's album, they were pissed. i just bought yoko's album, and i kind of love it.

any insane beatles fans out there with a shit-ton of bootlegs? i have this really great bootleg in which they're recording what was to become "let it be" and george has left the band after having that fight with paul. paul is in the background freaking out and playing martha my dear on the piano while the producers are all freaking out asking john what the hell they're going to do and if this is the end of the beatles. yoko asks for a mic and just starts SCREAMING repeatedly, to the tune of martha my dear, "JOHN! JOHN!" her and john engage in lyrical loveplay (much to the dismay of the producers). i understand why people hate yoko so much. i completely love her.

this scene might actually be in the Let It Be footage. it's been a while since i've seen it. i know George gets shocked at one point.

any way you could Honey Pie up somewhere?

i love the WA version, so i'm anxious to hear the demo.

Is your Honey Pie different than the one minute nineteen second demo on Anthology 3?
