‘Free as a bird’ by The Beatles

Are you a beatles fan? Well if you’re musically inclined in any way, we all know full well The Beatles is a must hear band due to their multiple talent and very wide sense of genres they have provided with their vision. You listen to them and you start to wonder are they singing about? Well at least it happens to me. One thing for sure is, with or without the influence of any sort of herbs, you would still be taken smoothly into this bumpy yet beautiful sight-seeing view by fellow Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Star.

There are two initial reactions of what may occur when you watch this video, if you are a huge epic fan of the beatles, you would probably notice the clues of their entire lives in music would appeal to the senses.

One would be – You would cry, its like a diary written in mythological language or image that you defines the meaning ‘Profound’.

Two –  A simple definition of their legendary status, you would appreciate their mark they left in this world.

Oh, well there is a possible 3rd reaction – You would just simply love the song. Fuck you.

I’m sure some or MOST of you Beatle maniacs might have seen this but without the guidance of internet that provides the clues, figure out which scene is leads to their events or songs. I had the first two reactions after watching the video with the song.

My evaluation of the song is pretty simple. They’re monkeys like us too. Their minds scatter every possible visions and route to paradise. Their minds worked together creates this dimension of the their definition of the ultimate peace… back in their young days.

Their minds are exactly like birds as well, where their vision is spread far in what they have observed the dirt and the clean about society, the world itself. But only among each other, back in their young days. I think the main reference of the song comes from the lyric;

“whatever happen to, the life that we once knew, it always made me feel so free, as a bird”
