Oldies (but Goldies) : The Beatles

Un petit coucou nostalgique à ces bon vieux Beatles; bien sûr, il y a tellement de choix possibles que çà pourrait prendre beaucoup de temps pour décider quoi publier; alors, j'ai opté pour une sélection de morceaux que j'aime vraiment, et qui en même temps ont tous un caractère particulier, depuis l'approche de la musique indienne de "Love You To" jusqu'à la tendance "psychédélique", voire même musique contemporaine, de "A Day in the Life".

A Day in the Life

I read the news today oh boy
About a lucky man who made the grave
And though the news was rather sad
Well I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph
He blew his mind out in a car
He didn't notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd seen his face before
Nobody was really sure
If he was from the House of Lords.

I saw a film today oh boy
The English Army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away
but I just had to look
Having read the book
I'd love to turn you on

Woke up, fell out of bed,
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
And looking up I noticed I was late.
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in second splat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
and Somebody spoke and I went into a dream

I read the news today oh boy
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall.
I'd love to turn you on
