Grow Old With Me

Posted by shanoah on May 18, 2009

I thought about posting that song, Sean. I think that’s one of the few swear words I’m still very reluctant to use, actually. The others, I don’t generally use, but I think are useful on occassion. (And the word fuck is one of the most versitile in the English language, really…)

But the video I saw kept having Yokos arm spasming over a bongo drum weakly, and she honestly seemed like she didn’t want to be there. (Why can’t she ever be in a video with John and singing well and having them sound good together? She’s capable of it; the song and video for Hell In Paradise were awesome…)

Yoko’s sort of involved with the one I’m going to post today, actually. You see, this was one of the songs John still had unfinished when he was killed. It was called Grow Old With Me. Yoko offered it to the remaining Beatles in 1994 to finish up, but George Harrison wasn’t comfortable doing it, understandably, with the theme of the song, and the way John died. So in 1998, she handed it off to George Martin, their former producer, who some people have referred to as the fifth Beatle.

He added an orchestral effect to it, and this song was the end result. Note: some pictures contain nudity. On Johns part.
