“I Am The Walrus”

I am he as you are he as you are me
And we are all together
See how they run like pigs from a gun see how they fly
I’m crying

Sitting on a cornflake waiting for the van to come
Corporation tee shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday
Man you been a naughty boy. You let your face grow long
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo g’ joob

Mister City Policeman sitting, pretty little policemen in a row
See how they fly like Lucy in the sky, see how they run
I’m crying, I’m crying
I’m crying, I’m crying

Yellow matter custard dripping from a dead dog’s eye
Crabalocker fishwife pornographic priestess
Boy you been a naughty girl, you let your knickers down
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo g’ joob

Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun
If the sun don’t come
You get a tan from standing in the English rain
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo g’ joob goo goo goo g’ joob

Expert texpert choking smokers
Don’t you think the joker laughs at you? (Ho ho ho! He he he! Ha ha ha!)
See how they smile like pigs in a sty, see how they snied
I’m crying

Semolina pilchard climbing up the Eiffel Tower
Elementary penguin singing Hare Krishna
Man you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo g’ joob goo goo g’ joob
Goo goo g’ joob goo goo g’ joob
Goo gooooooooooo jooba jooba jooba jooba jooba jooba
Jooba jooba
Jooba jooba
Jooba jooba

I don’t see what’s wrong with that, there are several storytelling elements and observations. You don’t get that these days, but the music is comparatively shit.

What it needs is e.g. prog rock, but with hindsight. Its not going to be exiting if there is nothing brash about it.

have you noticed how nothing revolutionary has happened since the 70’s? its all been tamed, made sense of ~ domesticated [our whole culture].

No.

Just music studios during that era formulated the rules for diversity of kinds of music, and what they were willing to foreward fund the payments for. They took the risk out of it in that very explosion, and every teenager aspiring to write music for his hand has been left with limited categories ever since. They try to make change within a genre, some bands like The Pelicans acknowledge this and try to be original by not accepting labels, but they obviously land in a style from influence.

But a lot of new inventive stuff has come forward. Your unlikely to see it rank high in the charts though, but the musicians ranking high on the charts are instinctively searching them out.

Anyway, I don’t identify with any musical culture cause I’m too cheap to bother. I just randomly search for stuff I like or hear, and poor Amazon.com has a impossible time guessing what my likes and dislikes will be. Was easier to do thus ten years ago with Pandora when I still occasionally listened to the radio and had to pick a station.

just look at genesis. it used to be about weird music and elaborate clown costumes, now its about weird music but in the city.

Should have took its own advice and trusted the country boy rather than the town man.
