A lot of movies like to play Here Comes The Sun!
I know! People don't take me seriously because I have a little girl voice. -_- And my mom makes fun of me for it. Like, I can't help it! Well, we sound cute anyway and we'll probably still sound like little girls by the time we're in our 50s lol! Which I hope I won't even live that long!
Written by Jim Hendricks
LOL I ALMOST THOUGHT JIMI HENDRIX
Just like I thought Johnny Nash I Can See Clearly Now said Johnny Cash
LOL I remember when JP confused The Shirelles with Shirley Ellis
Since we're on the subject of 80s movies... there's a scene in "The Breakfast Club" when they ask "What did you want to do when you grew up?" and the answer "When I was little, I wanted to be John Lennon."
re: "When I was little, I wanted to be John Lennon."
So Cool!! :-)
That's pretty cool!
The original Japanese title, Noruwei no Mori, is the standard Japanese translation of the title of The Beatles song "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)", written by John Lennon The song is often mentioned in the novel, and is the favourite song of the character Naoko. Mori in the Japanese title translates into English as wood in the sense of "forest", not the material "wood", even though the song lyrics clearly refer to the latter. Forest settings and imagery are significantly present in the novel.
I noticed that the cover photo of Lucy the Sky is styled the same way as With The Beatles. I wonder if that was done on purpose? I read Go Ask Alice, written by the same author, some years ago, so maybe I should read Lucy in the Sky as well! Both books are written as journals, each by an Anonymous teen falling into a world of drugs and addiction...
BeatleGirl...Thanks for the information about this book! It's Cool that it's the favorite song of the character Naoko! It sounds like a Cool novel!
You're Right about the cover of "Lucy in the Sky". It IS styled the same way as the Album cover with her Picture fading to black towards the left! Would be interesting to Know if it was done on purpose! :-) Sounds interesting, maybe you should read Lucy in the Sky as well, since it was written by the same author!! Both Books sound very interesting!
In a book I'm currently reading, Dollhouse by Anya Allyn, someone in the story is wearing a Beatles shirt! ;)
It's about 4 teenagers who come across a mysterious, crumbling mansion in the depths of the mountains... Someone is about to vanish, and one of them is lying about what they know.
In addition to that, an excerpt from the book:
“Yeah,” I said. “Wouldn’t want to miss a sixties dress-up. But I won’t be getting groovy with Dominic. He’s not my style.” A pang hit the center of my back. Aisha would have loved a sixties party— she’d said she wished she was a teenager of that era. I bet she would have wanted to dress as John Lennon, her idol.
LOL, this mystery book has a subject I like and a character that I can relate to!
And also, here's a book by Summer Kinard called Can't Buy Me Love.
Not really sure if there is a Beatles reference in the book besides the title, but I sure hope there is!
