Let me take you down
'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real, and nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It's getting hard to be someone, but it all works out
It doesn't matter much to me

Let me take you down
'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real, and nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

No-one, I think, is in my tree
I mean, it must be high or low
That is, you can't, you know, tune in, but it's all right
That is, I think it's not too bad

Let me take you down
'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real, and nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

Always, no, sometimes think it's me
But you know I know when it's a dream
I think, er, no, I mean, er, yes, but it's all wrong
That is, I think I disagree

Let me take you down
'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real, and nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever
Strawberry Fields forever
Strawberry Fields forever

This song is soooo good for the ears...
 
I can already hear this any time I want, I have it on me all the time, and even if I don't, I'd just use Youtube. But I think this is one of those songs that hit you hard when you're not expecting to hear them. I get goosebumps even when I come across this while I'm shuffling my Beatles playlist, so I can't imagine what I'd feel if I hear this on RP out of the blue.

Kind of funny but I spent a few hours last night listening to all the different versions of this song on Youtube.  Quite a story behind this song, now I know where the two takes are mixed together. 

It just hit the 6th year anniversary of the last time it was played on RP.   I am going to request it.

edit: well, looks like the "request song" link has been removed, guess I won't request it after all.

George, John, Ringo and Paul.
The Beatles.

Awful scan and quite a crude, un-sophistcated image (with a few errors in the drawing/cropping/lyrics) but a very personal piece of artwork for me.

Long story short the Beatles music gave me back my artistic inspiration (what little I had of it in the first place, anyway!)

This is dedicated to their wonderful music (and especially George Harrison who was my favourite of the Fab Four).

What more can I say?
 
and don't forget the best verse in the universe "...living is easy with eyes closed...."
Can't believe this hasn't been played in nearly 4 years.
Strawberry Fields Forever was inspired by Strawberry Field, which was a Salvation Army home in Liverpool that John Lennon adored.

Instead of 10-godlike I would put 10-Strawberry fieldiesh foreverish Hey, btw, I would be curios to find out why isn't this song aired anymore. 60s pshychedelia not appropriate these days?
Ok, that cinches it- Magical Mystery Tour is officially my favorite Beatle's album.
:clap: :clap: :bananapiano: :biggrin: Such a great and beautiful song by John Lennon even on his demo version of him just on his acoustic guitar!
I can't remember how many times I played the Blue Album on my dad's old turntable as a little kid, just to wait for this song to enchant me once again. More than 16 years later it hasn't lost any of its magic.
Probably the best single in the universe. What more can I say? :sunny:
i was born one year too late..i never had the privilage of living at the same time, in the same city, as John...no doubt i grew up with him though.. we miss you buddy, rock on...
:bounce: For the song, :sad: Because some twerp had to take him from us.
Rest in Peace John. The world is better place because of you.
One of my favorite Beatles tunes. ...flashback inducing :hearteyes:
Come on, for today?
