We recall the 200th anniversary of The Battle of Waterloo……..”a watershed in European history that marked the end of the continent’s domination by France and its emperor Napoleon and the beginning of the British century.”

Happy # 73 to Paul McCartney

mccartney

We say happy # 73 to Paul McCartney, one of the greatest songwriters of our time…….it’s hard to pick a McCartney song……..we are selecting “For no one” from the “Revolver” LP…..I’ve always felt that this song ranks up there with “Yesterday”, “Eleanor Rigby” and “Here there and everywhere”……a beautiful ballad……

THE BEATLES
FOR NO ONE

“Your day breaks, your mind aches
You find that all the words of kindness linger on
When she no longer needs you

She wakes up, she makes up
She takes her time and doesn’t feel she has to hurry
She no longer needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one A love that should have lasted years

You want her, you need her
And yet you don’t believe her when she said her love is dead
You think she needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one A love that should have lasted years

You stay home, she goes out
She says that long ago she knew someone but now he’s gone
She doesn’t need him

Your day breaks, your mind aches
There will be time when all the things she said will fill your head
You won’t forget her

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one A love that should have lasted years….”
