Yoko ono after lennons death dating
The second set of lyrics: "On a river of sound, Thru the mirror go round, round, I thought I could feel (feel, feel, feel), Music touching my soul, something warm, sudden cold, The spirit dance was unfolding." Music touching my soul...
something warm, sudden cold, the spirit dance was unfolding...
Was curious to see what others thought of it's meaning. I always loved John Lennon and the Beatles from a little boy who first saw them on Ed Sullivan February "9th", 1964. I was fortunate enough to attend his vigil in Central Park, NYC on Dec. To me the song has an eerie prophetic message about his death. "Took a walk down the street, Thru the heat whispered trees, I thought I could hear (hear, hear, hear), Somebody call out my name as it started to rain, Two spirits dancing so strange".
All the imagery of Lennon walking into the Dakota off Central Pk West, Chapman standing poised taking his shots, etc.
In 1968, as a favour to Starr, Sinatra recorded a special version of his previously released song, "The Lady Is a Tramp", for Mo's birthday.
Sammy Cahn re-wrote the lyrics, and personalised them: "She married Ringo, and she could have had Paul/That's why the lady is a champ".
This song has been playing in my head for a few days now.He was a true authentic, so sad he was senselessly killed in his prime. To listen to it now, so many years after it's been recorded and John has been gone from us..one to me, seems almost haunting----the melody, the arrangement, the lyrics, everything. It's simply a song written to Yoko who he was seperated from where he's stating how sad he is that they're no longer together and remembering their relationship as if it was a dream. Throughout much of his life John had always felt he was connected to the number 9.I knew that "pousse" is "pushed" in French, so I entered "wakawa" into a translation engine and in Swahali, it means "were". Using it in songs like #9 Dream, Revolution #9, One after 909. The girl saying "John" wasn't Yoko, it was, um I don't remember her name but it was not Yoko. It's so atmospheric, like a lot of Johns songs like I'm Only Sleeping, Across the Universe, to name two.I don't know why I thought it was about the time he was enjoying the gigs in Hamburg and his close friendship with Stuart Sutcliffe that took John by surprise when he was told Stuart died. In that dream someone call him..when He answer, starting raining and the spirits became reality for him..was death."Music touching my soul, something warm, sudden cold". You can see interviews with Yoko Ono and May Pang in the PBS program "Lennon in NYC" - an episode of the American Masters series - where they talk about this song and the time during which John and Yoko were separated and why. John spoke openly about his flaws and fears, he put it all out there in his music. He wrote so clearly that I am surprise that no one could understand this music.(REMEMBER...chapman calls him before the shot).
