Tonight 10.45pm BBC 2
Probably the greatest film ever made. Get it watched.
I enjoyed it though. It was worth watching just to get to the You've Got To Hide Your Love Away bit.
is much better. I LOVE that film. You know how loads of girls know all the words to Dirty Dancing, well since I was about 4 I've known all the words to this.
Been a while since I saw Help! though so it was good seeing it last night
the one George sits next to? The first thing he said to her was "marry me". She did.
She also married Clapton eventually and is the inspiration for Layla. When she was getting ready to go to a party of McCartney's he wrote Wonderful Tonight for her too. Jagger and Lennon were smitten by her for years but she spurned them, though did have an affair with Ronnie Wood.
Twiggy based her whole look on her.
She also took some pretty cool photos of her time with her two hubbies.
She was the one responsible for The Beatles becoming involved in all the Eastern mysticism that we see in Help!
She's quite the muse.
So yeah...I'll marry you, but I'll leave you for Clapton.
we could be like this
and everything would be in black and white and shit. yeah.
Clapton though? Clapton? thats a shocker that is.
I think you'd make a pretty good muse.
I could shamelessly steal your poetry for lyrics, sell millions of records, we'd have secret affairs with other musicians and artists, bitch about each other in our 'best selling' autobiographies, sue one another for every single penny the other owns, but deep down... we'd still crave the passionate embrace of each other like nothing else in the world matters...
maybe. thats the dream anyway innit...
I'll get a band together then, it'll be a hoot.
On a serious note though, I like your poetry, its good.
Can I steal it for lyrics? I'm shit at writing lyrics at the moment...
Yeah, go ahead...just treat me to something nice if you make some money off it. And if you make lots of money then please arrange for me never have to go back to my God awful, soul sapping job ever again. Cheers!
you'd really be up for it?
I'll try recording some songs out of them then, will send you em if they're any good :)
If I make loadsa money, we can move to India and live with Ravi Shankar. If you like.
I'm going to try and do some writing tonight actually, I'll see if I can write you anything more song like!
Have to say I could've imagined some of them in song straight away, Kraken for example, great stuff :)
(working my way through reading em all on yer blog at the moment) But yes by all means write more if you wish :)
bit racist now though by todays standards it has to be said.
