"A song like Got To Get You Into My Life, that's directly about pot, although everyone missed it at the time. Day Tripper, that's one about acid. Lucy In The Sky, that's pretty obvious.
"Got To Get You Into My Life" is about marijuana? It doesn't make a bit of sense at all.
Got to Get You Into My Life
Jeez Louise, was he stoned when he gave this interview?
Now it can be told. John the eclectic, George the acetic, and Paul the copacetic. I had always admired him for that, but after reading that interview, I've come full circle.
You would think that an almost-62-year-old man would have learned to keep his mouth shut about his drug use, having seen the damage it's done in the world since the 60s. Now he graciously informs us that songs we adored in our youth, and taught our children to love, were inspired by drugs after all. Ta, Paulie.
I can see it. (no, I'm not high....or burned out) :)
Strawberry Fields forever man! Peace!
>>> "Got To Get You Into My Life" is about marijuana? It doesn't make a bit of sense at all.
Heck, just revisiting the lyrics, you'd miss it again if he hadn't said it was about pot.
I am a bit surprised that Pepper was the first time they did studio work while high...I would have bet it was Rubber Soul.
I guess the title of Day Tripper might make sense that it was about acid. Silly, naive me. I thought it was about someone going on a one-day holiday.
I can clearly see the metaphor of smoking pot in that song. But that's the thing about songs, poetry, etc.- everyone will read something different. Would I have seen the innuendo without Paul's confession? Probably not. But some people need help finding Waldo too. ;)
No, this sounds about right. This sounds like an addict.
