He even made Cynthia try to look like Bardot. He lit a fire. Surely never to return. Not even Lennon, for sure. For all of Paul says, will keeping saying, adding to the story, is bullshit.
He was, is and will ever be, covering up for his pal. So they, both, had to lit the fire that was never lit because of too much wine and dope. Nice theory. I understand that John Lennon enjoyed word play. I so enjoyed visiting this website and reading the civil exchange of ideas. It gives me a greater appreciation of my very first album, a Christmas present from my brother Dean when I was a very little girl.
I still have Rubber Soul and play it on my Crosley turntable. They probably only played the song just enough to record it real takes and then moved on never to revisit it. I am not aware of it ever having been played live by the Beatles either as a band or by John solo. I find it sad in a way, that they wrote so much great material and could never really do all of it justice.
I have played the song around camp fires, in clubs and pubs for over 35 years — literally hundreds of times and still love it — it seems weird that they never got to enjoy the song the way normal people do.
This was the Beatles firing on all cylinders. Norwegian Wood is a timeless classic. This is a timeless classic as another contributor said.
One of his best off Rubber Soul one of the greatest albums of all time. I had heard this song many times on radio , but this was reinforced when I got The Love Songs compilation and Rubber Soul for my birthday in Famous sitar work by George Harrison. There has been speculation about what the last line means. I have an additional possibility.
John liked word games and double meanings. John worded the last line in a way that allows the interpretation that after the bird left for work, the subject resigns himself to having sex by himself in the bathtub, equating that cheap unsatisfying sex woke up with Norwegian wood, to borrow part of a phrase from ZZ Top to the cheap wood pine decor on the walls.
When I was 12 years old, my dad gave me the album to listen to. This was my favourite song of theirs at the time. Only 3 years later, I find myself feeling awfully nostalgic whilst listening to it. And also awfully confused.
Is there a second meaning to the song or not? It has been made clear to me by a few sources that the song is most likely about Sonny Freeman. The first time I looked into the lyrics, without much influence reading about the meaning, this is what I thought:. Instead, he opts to put her off and sit on the floor, and take advantage of her taste by drinking her no doubt excellent, overpriced wine.
He decides to push the issue to a comedic point by preferring to sleep in the tub rather than even share her bed for sleeping. The next morning, he wakes up alone, frustrated himself, as a result of cockblocking her, wanting to fight being a kept man, and by her superficialness. He decides to mock her and end it all by burning the place down. Infact, there are version of the song that starts with an upper B, however these cannot be played on Sitar tuned in C due to the physics and mechanics of it.
Looking for additional evidence supporting the G riff. The song is about John meeting up with a girl who he thought he could seduce, and being invited to go home with her. I think that John was just word playing with us in this one trying to be sophisticated about an affair as he says.
The melody is just so tight and the structure of the song is perfection. How I miss these guys and those times so long ago. I figured out the meaning — exactly as Sir Paul says it — after one listen many, many years ago. You know I wanna do it again on her four post Norwegian bed. They belonged to everybody.
