“If you believe that feeling bad or worrying long enough will change a past or future event,
then you are residing on another planet with a different reality system.”

- William James
(11 Jan 1842 - 26 Aug 1910)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   It seems like a Beatles sort of day.....

BONUS - There's a Place - The Beatles


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There%27s_a_Place 
 

"There's a Place" is a song composed by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and was first released as a track on the Beatles' debut LP, Please Please Me. Lennon and McCartney share lead vocals, with George Harrison providing backing vocals.

The title was inspired by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim's "Somewhere" from West Side Story, which contained the line: "There's a place for us." McCartney owned the album of the soundtrack at the time of writing "There's a Place" and acknowledges its influence.[1] The "place" in question was "the mind", making its subject matter slightly more cerebral than Britain's kissing and cuddling songs and America's surf music from that period.[2] Lennon is quoted as saying: "'There's a Place' was my attempt at a sort of Motown, black thing. [2] It says: 'In my mind there's no sorrow...' It's all in your mind."

Composed at McCartney's Forthlin Road home, it was part of the group's stage repertoire in 1963.[3] With its major seventh harmonica intro (later reprised) and searing two-part vocal harmonies in fifths (Lennon low, McCartney high), it stands out as an early Beatles milestone track. The song was recorded on 11 February 1963 in ten takes during the first of three sessions for Please Please Me.[4]

The song was officially credited to "McCartney–Lennon", as were all other Lennon–McCartney compositions on the original UK release of Please Please Me...

There's a Place

Words and Music by John Lennon (09 Oct 1940 – 08 Dec 1980) and Paul McCartney (b. 18 June 1942)

Recorded by The Beatles, 1963


There is a place,
Where I can go,
When I feel low,
When I feel blue.
And it's my mind,
And there's no time when I'm alone.

I think of you,
And things you do,
Go 'round my head,
The things you said,
Like "I love only you."

In my mind there's no sorrow,
Don't you know that it's so.
There'll be no sad tomorrow,
Don't you know that it's so.

There is a place,
Where I can go,
When I feel low,
When I feel blue.
And it's my mind,
And there's no time when I'm alone.
There's a place ...
