Thanks Hazelnut. "The Fool On the Hill" was a pretty massive undertaking. In this case of The Beatles and a False Paul, it wasn't out to prove a
murder and doppelganger. But ... it did point to something happening. Pretty apparent and glaring.
You just look at their lyrical output, from day one, and follow it. Try and get as much facts about the writing and recording of the songs. Sometimes
the songs were recorded within days of eachother and read like conversations
Think For Yourself
I'm Looking Through You
Put the lyrics to these songs together they almost suggest answer and reply on one particular event. The disappearance or changing of someone. I
viewed it from the angle that it was Lennon's change in behaviour, particularly post 1965. Now McCartney can say one is about Jane Asher, Lennon can
say it was about how he was feeling, and Harrison can say it was probably about government. Beatles fans will insist these are what these are about
through the 'word of the artist'. I say, look at as many external events going on around these people at the time, when these songs were written and
recorded, and then go inside the subconcious creative mind and see what comes out with all these inputs. Do the same with the Revolver album and
wonder why they are so concerned about death all of a sudden, where Lennon has drifted off somewhere else ....
Like I said Fool On the Hill was a massive undertaking. I didn't even get up to Revolver before I was 30,000 words in. You have to look at the
upbringing of the person, instances of how they deal with outside events as best can be known, internal struggles that were prevalent throughout their
lifetimes ..... songs are Diaries. Conversations.
Put those three songs together. Remove what you know about their 'writing'. Forget Jane Asher, Lennon's 1st seclusion, or a mystery government.
Just look at the words and what they are saying. What they imply. They read like three people's versions of a current event. Then go back in again
with all the Beatley info you know, and see what you come up with.
I found that after "Yesterday" some serious s*** went down. I don't know what, but the dynamic in the band changed. And then death. And then
re-emergence as a 'fake' band. With one member always made different from the others. It just got way too coincidental to be ...
