Track #6: Remember

(abajo en espa帽ol)

Remember is a song that evokes memories of childhood and that feeling we’ve all ever had: what would have happened if …?The lyric of the song is simple and recreates a series of typical images of memories from our childhood: how high we thought were the people, the hero of our adventures that always eluded the wicked.
This was the song that I had more fear in this project, since the original arrangement is very hard and raw: a piano with delay and very repetitive rhythmic section … even exhausting! This is why I wanted to create more a “version” than a “cover” and bring the arrangement to an entirely different place: ukuleles, palms, backing vocals etc …
Something that has served me as an experiment, to create an arrangement in a new way for me.
I hope you enjoy it!

P.S.! The final explosion is a joke from Lennon, referring to “Remember, Remember the 5th of November Here the explanation馃槈

Remember es una canci贸n que evoca el recuerdo de la infancia y esa sensaci贸n que todos hemos tenido alguna vez: “que habr铆a pasado si…?” La letra de la canci贸n es sencilla y recrea una serie de im谩genes t铆picas del recuerdo de cuando 茅ramos ni帽os: lo altas que nos parec铆an las personas, el h茅roe de nuestras aventuras que siempre escapaba de los malvados.
Esta era la canci贸n a la que m谩s miedo ten铆a en este proyecto, ya que el arreglo original es muy duro y crudo: un piano con delay y una secci贸n r铆tmica muy repetitiva…incluso extenuante! Es por esta raz贸n que he querido crear m谩s una “versi贸n” que un “cover” y llevar el arreglo hacia otro lugar totalmente diferente: ukuleles, palmas, coros etc…
Algo que tambi茅n me ha servido como experimento, al crear un arreglo de una forma nueva para mi.
Espero que lo disfrut茅is!

PD! La explosi贸n final es una broma de Lennon, haciendo referencia al聽 “Remember, Remember the 5th of November…” Aqu铆 la explicaci贸n 馃槈

The prohibited word: Working Class Hero

* : Omitted at the insistence of E.M.I.omittedThese are the words that John Lennon decided to clarify the asterisk as hiding the word “fuck” up to two times in the lyrics of the song Working Class Hero.

The EMI Managers were shocked to hear them in the preview of the album and refused to publish the album, even asking John Lennon to re-record the song!
You can imagine the reaction of John, even more so in a song with social content and antisystem Working Class Hero.
The solution was to replace with an * the “forbidden word” and, secretly, add the comment in the printed lyrics.
In the cover of Plastic Ono Man, there are no prohibitions and I will respect the song message to 100%. Is someone going to shock today to hear “fuck“?In a few days you can listen to the cover. Stay tuned!

Estas son las palabras que John Lennon decidi贸 poner como aclaraci贸n al asterisco que ocultaba la palabra “fuck” hasta dos veces en las letras de la canci贸n Working Class Hero.
Los Managers de EMI se escandalizaron al oirlas en la preview del disco y se negaron a publicar el album, pidiendo incluso a John Lennon que volviera a grabar la canci贸n!
Es f谩cil imaginar la reacci贸n de John, a煤n m谩s trat谩ndose de una canci贸n con el contenido social y anti-sistema de Working Class Hero.
La soluci贸n fu茅 sustituir con un * la “palabra prohibida” y, a escondidas, a帽adir el comentario en las letras.
En el cover de Plastic Ono Man, no habr谩 prohibiciones y respetar茅 el mensaje de la cacni贸n al 100%. A alguien le va a escandalizar hoy d铆a escuchar “fuck”?En unos d铆as podr茅is escuchar el cover. Stay tuned!
