http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oh!_Darling#Background

*

John Lennon said, “‘Oh! Darling’ was a great one of Paul’s that he didn’t sing too well.

*

I always thought I could have done it better—it was more my style than his [New Orleans blues style of Fats Domino, though McCartney sang well a derivative of Fats Domino on McCartney’s Lady Madonna]. 

*

Paul wrote it, so what the hell, Paul’s going to sing it.”

*

The arrangement by Left Banke also includes a lush string orchestration, a memorable harpsichord part, and a descending chromatic bass melody which led critics to refer to the group’s sound as Baroque pop,”Bach-Rock” or Baroque n Roll

*

Rolling Stone placed the song among the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.   It has been widely recorded by singers in a wide range of genres and styles, often with great success.

*

*

“Walk Away Renee” by Left Banke was one of a series of love songs the infatuated Michael Brown wrote after meeting his newfound muse, Renée Fladen-Kamm.     After decades of obscurity, she was identified in 2001 as a noted singer, vocal teacher and artist on the West Coast.

*

*

Brown says of his unrequited love for Renée:

“I was just sort of mythologically in love, if you know what I mean, without having evidence in fact or in deed…But I was as close as anybody could be to the real thing.”
*

Fladen-Kamm was looking on during the recording of the song, and her presence nearly prevented its completion because of Brown’s nervousness.

*

*

My Hilo High peers had their own mystical Renee Hashimoto.   Very pleasing, quiet composure.    I have no idea who her parents/family are.     Here is her look-alike  –

George Martin’s ubiquitous oboe & Harrison’s sitar with surreal Lennon’s lead vocal   –

*

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8IgVCRm5PE

*

*

*

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Across_the_Universe#Composition

*

The lyrics are highly image-based, with abstract concepts reified with phrases like thoughts “meandering,”  words “slithering,” and undying love “shining.”

*

The title phrase “across the universe” appears at intervals to finish lines, although it never cadences, always appearing as a rising figure, melodically unresolved. It finishes on the leading note.

*

To the Western musical ear, the next musical note would be the tonic and would therefore sound complete.

*

In 2008 NASA transmitted the Interstellar MessageAcross the Universe” in the direction of the star Polaris, 431 light years from Earth.  The transmission was made using a 70m antenna in the Deep Space Network’s Madrid Deep Space Communication Complex, located outside of Madrid, Spain. It was done with an “X band” transmitter, radiating into the antenna at 18 kW. This was done to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the song’s recording, the 45th anniversary of the Deep Space Network (DSN), and the 50th anniversary of NASA.

*

*

*

Incredulously, Lennon’s song came out at the same time as Clark’s & Kubrick’s vaunted 2001: A Space Odyssey
