Well, what else could be said, written or filmed about The Beatles?

The band has been deconstructed, reconstructed in documentaries probably more than any other band in history.  Yet, here I am watching McCartney 3,2,1 with Paul and American record producer Rick Rubin. It’s an interesting combo of McCartney and Rubin, considering Rubin helped popularize hip hop music.

It’s Rubin and McCartney just chillin’ on what appears to be a sound stage with a mixing board listening to music and a piano for Paul. They discuss songwriting and deconstruct some of the Beatles songs. As well as tell stories that only Paul can give insight, wisdom and humor to.  They talk about John, George and even Jimi Hendrix.

The trivia and stories is what really captures my interest and heart. It captures me because after growing up with their music in my life and only hearing the end product, learning about the ingredients in their music that gives flavor to my love for the Beatles.

Here’s a piece of Beatle trivia I was not aware of, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band album was a direct response by Paul and the Beatles to the Beach Boys Pet Sounds groundbreaking album released in 1966.

I love how Paul recounts the story of being in a club called the Bag O’ Nails with some friends and where he would eventually meet his wife Linda. And all of a sudden he heard the distinct sound of an electric guitar plugging in and Jimi Hendrix started to play and sing “Hey Joe.”

In McCartney 3, 2, 1, Macca reminisces about seeing Bob Dylan at the Royal Albert Hall and how it was special to him even tho “all the folkies kinda booed him, they thought he’s gone over to the other side”.

I don’t know how many years I never knew the real story behind “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.”  There were four theories and Paul talks about the real truth behind the song.

Bottom line, if you’re a Beatle fan, you’ll enjoy listening to stories you never knew about the band and their music.  Paul is charismatic and elegant.

McCartney 3,2,1 is on the HULU network.

Jaden – U Lyrics

[Intro: Lido & Téo]
I was tryin’ to love you but we
(Falling down, we falling down, we falling down)
Said shawty I was f**king tryna love you but we, ohh
(Falling down, we falling down, we falling down)
I was tryin’ to love you but we, hey
(Falling down, we falling down, we falling down)
I was tryin’ to love you but we, falling
(Falling down, we falling down, we falling down)
I was tryin’ to love you but we, ohh
(Falling down, we falling down, we falling down)
Said shawty I was f**king tryna love you but we, ohh
(Falling down, we falling down, we falling down)
I was tryin’ to love you, falling
(Falling down, we falling down, we falling down)
Did everything, I did everything
(Falling down, we falling down, we falling down)

[Verse 1: Jaden Smith]
Heart is broken, heart is broken
Gettin’ green, gettin’ green
Man I’m artichokin’, man I’m artichokin’
I can’t breathe, that’s the art of chokin’
That’s the, that’s the art of chokin’ (woo!)
Send a text, I never opened it
You thought I read this shit? Well I was jokin’
Falling down like I’m in Autumn
All you jokers spitting nada, nada, nada
Six minutes and I still gotta mind my muh’f**kin’ problem
Calm down, calm down

[Interlude: Jaden Smith]
Hm, hm, hm, hm, now we’re still here
Thank you

[Verse 2: Jaden Smith]
Try me, come try me
I wish you could see what I see
I’m late, you find me so timely
I’m lost, baby, come and find me
Girl, I’m fallin’ to the ground and you’ll never get me up
I’m just a baby with a stack of needles and a sippy cup
And this shit sucks, need some love, my Aphrodite I can touch
Elvis Presley’s coming out of me, my head has got a rush
Didn’t pick a fight, the FBI just picked a fight with me
Man I cry at night, like every night, just come right here and see
Screw your V.I.P, we are like Adam and Eve, we are like Adam and Eve
We are like Adam and Eve, oh no, what happened to me? No
Jimi Hendrix with the flex
On the Ford motor, rollin’, gettin’ checks
At your crib for the chill
Who is at the door? Are you finna check, check, check?
Man, you better show respect
Man, I let her go, we both know I had her
Man, I’m madder than a hatter
Played my heart and now I’m swagger than Mick Jagger

[Chorus: Jaden Smith]
Jimi Hendrix with the shits
Jimi Hendrix with the shits, I told ’em
Jimi Hendrix with the shits
Jimi Hendrix with the check, check, check, check
Jimi Hendrix with the shits, chaos, chaos
Jimi Hendrix with the shits
Jimi Hendrix, better check, check, check (you were my love)
Jimi Hendrix with the shits (you were mine)
Jimi Hendrix with the shits, chaos
Jimi Hendrix with the shits
Jimi Hendrix, better check, check, check
Jimi Hendrix with the shits (you watch me breathe)
Jimi Hendrix with the shits
Chaos, chaos, chaos, chaos, chaos, chaos, chaos

You were my love, You were my love
Don’t let you in my life
Don’t be rude to us
Sorry don’t be rude to us

[Outro: Jaden Smith]
You’re no good for me girl, you’re cruel and infectious
You are my wish, this is me with a death wish
I’m smart, I should get this but, your eyes, your hips, your lips
To me they’re so precious, I guard them like treasures
I’d run, I’d drive, I’d fly distant measures just to witness your gestures
Never forever (still flying), the moments still hold us together
Never forever (still flying), the moments still hold us together
Never forever (still flying), the moments still hold us together
Never forever (still flying), the moments still hold us together
(I don’t believe, girl, I don’t believe)
Never forever, the moments still hold us together
(That you wanna be, girl, somewhere not with me
I don’t believe, girl, I don’t believe)
Never forever, the moments still hold us together
(That you wanna be, girl, somewhere not with me
I’m crying to sleep, girl, I’m crying to sleep)
Never forever, the moments still hold us together
(I’ll die by the sea, girl, I’ll die by the sea)
Will you die with me, girl? Will you die with me?
The future I see, girl, will you try to see?

Delillos – Johnny Fredrik Lyrics

Hei hei Johnny Fredrik
Hvordan står det til
Fins det ingenting å tro på mer
Var alle dine barndomshelter
Kun med i et skuespill

Hei hei Guri Mette
Skal si du ser ut
Men det later til at ingen bryr seg mer
Kanskje er det samme for deg
Men ingen sjokkeres mer

Noen sier at rocken er død
Har bare fått en ny lyd
Og alt som var magisk har blitt borte
Selv om genier står for tur
St. Jimi Hendrix og St. Morrison
Kommer ikke til oss mer
Og ikke vet vi hvem vi skal be til
For å skaffe oss fler

Hei hei Ole Gunnar
Snart er du tredve år
Fremdeles bor du rundt i kollektiv
Kanskje er det slutt på idealismen
Du kunne tenkt deg et annet liv

Noen sier at rocken er død
Har bare fått en ny lyd
Og alt som var magisk har blitt borte
Selv om genier står for tur
St. Jimi Hendrix og St. Morrison
Kommer ikke til oss mer
Og ikke vet vi hvem vi skal be til
For å skaffe oss fler

Larissa Vienna & The Strange – The Crash Feels Good Lyrics

LARISSA VIENNA & THE STRANGE
The Crash Feels Good Lyrics

I don’t want to f**k Jimi Hendrix
I just want to be him
I don’t want to look like a Barbie
I just want to be like the girls who do

I’m flying high
On this pedestal you put me on
I’m coming down, I’m crashing
Crashing so hard
Crashing so hard, it feels good

I don’t want to pose for the camera
I don’t want my story told
Everyone makes up these lies
They make me look so brave and bold

I’m flying high
On this pedestal you put me on
I’m coming down, I’m crashing
Crashing so hard
Crashing so hard, it feels good

I never could’ve thought it
I never saw it coming
I can’t live through chemistry
People keep talking and I keep on dreaming
I wonder if tomorrow will come
I don’t want it to
I don’t want it to
I don’t want it to
I don’t want it to
Oh

I’m flying high
On this pedestal you put me on
I’m coming down, I’m crashing
Crashing so hard
Crashing so hard
Crashing so hard, it feels… good

Wyclef Jean – Hendrix (J’ouvert Deluxe Edition Album)

[Pre-Hook]
I’ma do this one for my homies gone
The judge hit the hammer they ain’t coming home
We all are from the danger zone
The devil pulled the card and he said choose one
I chose music, my homies chose yay
Some of my ballers chose the NBA
Cuzzo’s on the block, man they gang bang
Funeral parlors makin’ all the change

[Hook]
Yeah when my cousin got his first tec
I was playing Jimi Hendrix in the basement
All I wanted to be was a rock star
And all he wanted to be was an Escobar
El Chapo, Si
El Chapo, Si
All he wanted to do was be El Chapo, Si
El Chapo
El Chapo, Si
All he wanted to do was be El Chapo, Si

[Verse]
Gone ’til November, he ain’t comin’ back
I was talking bout my homies man that sold crack
Caught in the trap, hit from the back
They hid the steel
Like the owl boy that’s hidden on the dollar bill
Welcome to the rotten apple
The city of lights
No matter how days shine
They can’t steal the nights
Cause when the ghost knock knock
Just before you guess, red dot at your chest
The Eagles raid the cuckoos nest
Better be with them artillery packs
They be jumping like Jack when they jump out the box
Ratatatata that’s the sound of the gat
They be flying through the air like vampire bat
Straight from the back when they attack
In the middle o’ night when you up in the trap
You keep on bucking, they bucking you back
In the middle of bucking somebody get flat

[Pre-Hook]
I’ma do this one for my homies gone
The judge hit the hammer they ain’t coming home
We all are from the danger zone
The devil pulled the card and he said choose one
I chose music, my homies chose yay
Some of my ballers chose the NBA
Cuzzo’s on the block, man they gang bang
Funeral parlors makin’ all the change

[Hook]
When my cousin got his first tec
I was playing Jimi Hendrix in the basement
All I wanted was to be a rock star
And all he wanted to be was an Escobar
El Chapo, Si
El Chapo
All he wanted to do was be El Chapo, Si
El Chapo
El Chapo, Si
All he wanted to do was be El Chapo, Si

[Outro]
When he bought me that guitar I felt like Prince the artist
Turn up my guitar
When my cousin got his first tat
Acoustic trappin’ in the basement
All I wanted was to be a rock star

Shoko Nakagawa – 9Lives

27 años de edad, hay una leyenda
Janice, Amy, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt, Brian
Grandes chicos persiguiendo un sueño
Se convirtieron en estrellas las cuales el brillo se apago

Así se convirtieron en leyenda que no se pude superar
Pero nuestra leyenda va más allá

Estoy aquí misma en esta lucha viviendo
Mire hacia el fondo del valle, cayendo y soñando
Quiero sobrevivir expuesta
Se trata de dar la vida por la vida
De ser lo suficientemente bueno para vivir solo una vez
En este mundo donde se entrelazan las cosas bellas y tristes
El cual esta lleno de cosas incomprensibles

En mis palabras los gatos viven 9 veces
Parecen tener nueve vidas
Casualmente si es un sueño doloroso
Muchas veces las personas deben buscar la forma de vivir

Evita fingir ante las personas
El viento está soplando hacia el mañana
No es un ganar o perder, ¿que no puedes ver las cosas hermosas?

Por el hecho de amar nos podemos encontrar a la deriva
Me encontré de nuevo rompiendo sueños
Va a buscarlos hasta darles sentido
Se trata de dar la vida por la vida
Se trata de continuar persiguiéndolos durante toda la vida
Este amor, fortaleza o debilidad
Podría ser un “yo” que no entiendo

Por el hecho de amar nos podemos encontrar a la deriva
Me encontré de nuevo rompiendo sueños
Va a buscarlos hasta darles sentido
Se trata de dar la vida por la vida
Se trata de continuar persiguiéndolos durante toda la vida
Este amor, fortaleza o debilidad
Podría ser un “yo” que no entiendo

Las raíces crecen
En este suelo persistente lleno de fortaleza
Solo una parte puede ser observada
Entre rostros que sonríen y lloran

Estoy aquí mismo en esta lucha viviendo
Mire hacia el fondo del valle, cayendo y soñando
Quiero sobrevivir expuesta
Se trata de dar la vida por la vida
Se trata de ser lo suficientemente bueno para vivir una vez
En este mundo donde se entrelazan las cosas bellas y tristes
El cual esta lleno de cosas incomprensibles
