Coloring Club Plus — 8/29/19

Aug 29

Today’s coloring is dedicated to The Beatles.  The 4 froggies represent the Fab Four.

I remember when this album came to my house and even as a 5 year-old, I was playing the vinyl off of it. I would sit there on the floor and pore over the jacket. I loved the album as a whole and didn’t understand the concept of doing anything except play it as a whole. Thinking back to those times, “Do You Want to Know a Secret?” was my favorite song because I loved the sound of George’s voice, even though I had no idea which Beatle was singing at the time.

Please Please Me is the debut studio album by the English rock band the Beatles. The album topped Record Retailer’s LP chart for 30 weeks, an unprecedented achievement for a pop album at that time. In 2012, Please Please Me was voted 39th on Rolling Stone’s list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”.

“Do You Want to Know a Secret” is a song by English rock group the Beatles from their 1963 album Please Please Me, sung by George Harrison. In the United States, it was the first top ten song to feature Harrison as a lead singer, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard chart in 1964 as a single released by Vee-Jay, VJ 587. The song was recorded as part of their marathon ten-hour recording session on February 11, 1963 along with nine other songs for Please Please Me. Harrison sang two songs on Please Please Me—this song by Lennon–McCartney and “Chains” by Goffin/King.

You’ll never know how much I really love you
You’ll never know how much I really care

Listen, do you want to know a secret?
Do you promise not to tell?
Whoa-oh-oh, closer
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I’m in love with you, ooh

Listen (doo da do), do you want to know a secret? (doo da do)
Do you promise not to tell? (doo da do)
Whoa-oh-oh, closer (doo da do)
Let me whisper in your ear (doo da do)
Say the words you long to hear
I’m in love with you, ooh

I’ve known a secret for a week or two
Nobody knows, just we two

Listen (doo da do), do you want to know a secret? (doo da do)
Do you promise not to tell? (doo da do)
Whoa-oh-oh, closer (doo da do)
Let me whisper in your ear (doo da do)
Say the words you long to hear
I’m in love with you, ooh, ooh, ooh

Songwriters: John Lennon / Paul Mccartney

  1. You are a true blue honest George fan…you liked him the best before you knew who he was!
    This was a good song for George to sing. I like the stuttering guitar and George’s vocal.

  2. Come on spill it…I’m sure I have heard it. I know he said he wrote it for him because it was in his register singing.
    They held nothing back.

  3. In 1980, Lennon said that he gave “Do You Want to Know a Secret” to Harrison to sing because “it only had three notes and he wasn’t the best singer in the world”, but added “he has improved a lot since then.”

  4. John was mad at him in that interview. In Georges autobiography I Me Mine… John said he barely mentions him. I think he was hurt more than mad.
    I think that was the Playboy interview.

  5. You know what I think about that? I don’t care if you’re mad at someone or not, you do not slam them like that in an article maliciously just because you are. You handle like an adult. I’m sorry, but I’m upset about it.

  6. Yep that is it…I found this In August 1980, writer David Sheff flew to New York for a big assignment: an interview with John Lennon and Yoko Ono for the magazine Playboy…
    It’s a sad interview to read when you know what is about to happen.

  7. Yea being an adult wasn’t always his strongest point. Nothing surprises me with them… it turned out awful of course. After saying that and not being able to talk to George.

  8. I keep getting flashbacks of bits and pieces from the Scorcese movie. I’m thinking of an interview they did with George after John was gone. The interviewer was trying to get him to say something negative about John and he did just the opposite. I think George understood John and didn’t hold a grudge even when he acted like a child.

  9. John and Paul…
    Paul went to visit George also when he was dying. I read where Paul said they put everything behind them and Pau, Ringo, and George told stories and laughed about the old days…that was great to hear.

  10. That’s good to hear. I enjoy these “chats” we have on The Beatles and other topics. I”m headed over to watch the last half of The Kid, then do my coloring. You have a good night, Max!
