slicethelife

The Beatles Song Of The Day is “I’ve Just Seen A Face” which is on The Beatles “Help!” album. “I’ve Just Seen A Face” was written by Paul McCartney. John Lennon at this time was carrying the load as far as the songwriting went. Paul wrote this song which was originally called “Auntie Gin’s Theme” because his Aunt Gin liked it. This is a fast paced, upbeat song near the end of “Help!” which was not the most inspired Beatles album. One of the highlights on the album.It has a country-bluegrass music feel to it. A unique sounding Beatles song. John Lennon: acoustic guitar/ Paul McCartney: vocal and acoustic guitar/ George Harrison: acoustic lead guitar/ Ringo Starr: brushed snare and maracas. The song was recorded on June 14th, 1965 at Abbey Road. Producer: George Martin.

    • Before I got into The Beatles- or music really- my dad was into bluegrass music and I heard him playing The Dillards album with this song on it- it was memorable I thought what a great song and I didn’t know it was a Beatles song until I heard it a few years later and I remembered the song. Wow The Beatles wrote this!

    • I have seen it once- i thought it was OK. It has been at least ten years since I’ve seen it I need to watch it again. What do you think of it?

    • I think it’s brilliant, a masterful commentary transcending time and place. Director Julie Taymor cast unknown actors to deliver relevant social commentary courtesy music of the Beatles. In my mind a stunning accomplishment.

    • I will give it another look. I think sometimes the mood I am in at the time I watch something- influences how i view it. I remember thinking it was OK- but it has been some time… going to order it through my library system now while I am thinking about it! thanks for bringing it up.

    • Totally agree with you about mood.
      Caught it on the big screen a few days after release.I walked out of the theatre grinning from ear to ear. It was nominated for an Oscar and lost to Sweeney Todd starring Johnny Depp – I threw up in my mouth! At first glance I understand why so many people dismissed it as a lame love story. My interpretation still resonates emotional accolades for cinematic perfection. 🙂
