Coloring Club Plus — 8/31/19

Aug 31a

Today’s coloring took me two sessions. Whew! As you can see, the theme besides the owl is guitars. See how many guitars you can find here.

OK, on with The Beatles! You’ll be seeing them for awhile as I have gathered the rest of their discography. Yes!  Looking at the track listing, it appears I have the UK & Australian release. Cool.

Per wikipedia:
A Hard Day’s Night is their third studio album, released on July 10, 1964, with side one containing songs from the soundtrack to their film of the same name. The American version of the album was released two weeks earlier, on June 26, with a different track listing. In contrast to their first two albums, all 13 tracks on A Hard Day’s Night were written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney showcasing the development of their songwriting talents.

The title of the album was the accidental creation of drummer Ringo Starr. According to Lennon in a 1980 interview with Playboy magazine: “I was going home in the car and Dick Lester [director of the movie] suggested the title, ‘Hard Day’s Night’ from something Ringo had said. I had used it in In His Own Write, but it was an off-the-cuff remark by Ringo. You know, one of those malapropisms. A Ringo-ism, where he said it not to be funny … just said it. So Dick Lester said, ‘We are going to use that title.‘”

Things We Said Today” is written by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon–McCartney. It was composed for the film A Hard Day’s Night but was eventually not included. It does appear on the soundtrack album. It was also released as the B-side of the single “A Hard Day’s Night” in the UK.

McCartney wrote the song in May 1964 while cruising the Caribbean aboard a yacht called Happy Days with his then-girlfriend Jane Asher. Music critic Ian MacDonald said, “The sombre lyric—provoked by the frustrating interruptions of a relationship between two career people—matches the lowering gloom of the music.

The song has a reverse nostalgia premise. McCartney said, “I wrote this on acoustic. It was a slightly nostalgic thing already, a future nostalgia. We’ll remember the things we said today, sometime in the future, so the song projects itself into the future.

I’ve included the remastered studio version and also the live version after the lyrics.

 

You say you will love me
If I have to go
You’ll be thinking of me
Somehow I will know

Someday when I’m lonely
Wishing you weren’t so far away
Then I will remember
Things we said today

You say you’ll be mine, girl
‘Til the end of time
These days such a kind girl
Seems so hard to find

Someday when we’re dreaming
Deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
The things we said today

Me, I’m just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is luck
And, though we may be blind
Love is here to stay
And that’s enough
To make you mine, girl
Be the only one
Love me all the time, girl
We’ll go on and on

Someday when we’re dreaming
Deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today

Me, I’m just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is luck
And, though we may be blind
Love is here to stay
And that’s enough
To make you mine, girl
Be the only one
Love me all the time, girl
We’ll go on and on

Someday when we’re dreaming
Deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
The things we said today

Songwriters: John Winston Lennon / Paul James McCartney

        You did a great job on it. You have a lot of patience. You are going to have a huge collection.
        They have more songs than people think…You have picked some good ones. The radio plays the same 20 or so songs over and over. They have so many to choose from…

      It doesn’t have the neck, but it’s at least a half a guitar.

    There is definitely a sadness in this song. They must have known. (K)
