And Your Bird Can Sing - Charles River Valley Boys - Beatle Country (Vinyl, LP)

The lack of an explanation from Lennon himself has led others to speculate on its meaning; [4] music journalist Robert Fontenot states that the lyrics are among "the most speculated-upon of any Beatles track". Singer Marianne Faithfull said the song was addressed to Mick Jagger and written about her, since she was Jagger's girlfriend or "bird" in English slang at the time. McCartney was later dismayed to discover that, rather than the ingenious declarations he recalled, his realisations amounted to the phrase "There are seven levels.

Photographer Robert Whitaker based his photo "Birdcage" on the song's lyrics. The group re-recorded the song on 26 April. The session began with Lennon's tongue-in-cheek introduction, "Okay, boys — quite brisk, moderato, foxtrot", [36] and the group performing a rhythm track that Lewisohn terms " very heavy", before the mood was lightened in subsequent takes. The band used take 10 as their basic track, before overdubs.

The song was remixed on 6 June, towards the end of the Revolver sessions. He views its omission as indicative of the band's mindset that touring had become a futile exercise, but rues that they did not seek to regain enthusiasm by playing recent material that would have suited their stage act.

While he also viewed the music of "And Your Bird Can Sing" as a natural choice for live performance, relative to the more complex recordings on Revolver , he added:. In his commentary on the track, English academic Toby Litt admired its Indian drone quality and the raga influence in the guitar melody.

He said that the riff was perhaps "the most baroque that pop music ever came up with", adding: "Slow it down and it could be a Bach chorale. He writes that although Lennon was indifferent to the song and the lyric is "probably nonsense", it's "wildly entertaining" and complements the vocal performances. The group was formed by students in Cambridge, Massachusetts in Although the group's membership changed frequently, the core performers of the Charles River Valley Boys in the early years were Eric Sackheim guitar, mandolin , Bob Siggins banjo, vocals , and Clay Jackson guitar, vocals , all students at Harvard , and Ethan Signer guitar, mandolin, autoharp , vocals , a graduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

All were fans of bluegrass and old-timey music , and they began performing together, often with others, at Harvard, appearing regularly on the Harvard student radio station WHRB and becoming regular performers at Tulla's Coffeehouse in Harvard Square. In , Paul Rothchild , a friend of the band who had worked as a record distributor in the Boston area, produced their second album on his own label, Mount Auburn Records.

Siggins later said: [9]. We just thought a lot of [their songs] would adapt themselves to a country sound As we got into learning the songs, we discovered that the singing they did lent itself well to bluegrass harmonies, which we liked to kind of layer on top of the lead vocal.

And they did some kind of similar things Was it cause in the Anthology song, John was smacking his lips? Put that in the article it anyone think that's it. The reason for laughing was an inside joke, when they got high on pot one time paul was obsessing to trying to find a pen to write something down what he thought was the meaning of life because he just discovered it.

When they sobered up, they read it and it said "there are 7 levels" and relized it meant nothing and it became a joke Paul starts to laugh. I added a short comment about how Elvis Costello appreciates this song.

I think it has some importance and interest, as he is a major artist and Beatles lover. If anyone thinks otherwise, please explain why. Barak Pick —Preceding unsigned comment added by I can't recall which book I read that from, but it's been suggested that the inspiration came from Cynthia who bought a cuckoo clock to John who found the gift unbearable.

The White Album and you get a veritable hard-rock clinic on what used to be, in the days of vinyl". Especially on the west coast, when we came out to play some of it on tour.
