Les Brandy Alexander...euh c'est toujours servi avec des soucoupes?
Oui, des soucoupes... toujours. Des sous-verres aussi parfois
Un reportage en images de l'histoire de John :
Il avaient essayer de mettre en images avec documents d'archives, sonores (John à la radio), et puis aussi le témoignage de May Pang en personne.
A propos du morceau d'Harry, en fait, c'est lui-même qui fait toutes les voix.
Y compris celle du barman que je pensais être celle de Ringo.
En même temps, si on écoute bien la fin, on a bien l'impression qu'il s'agit de lui (Ringo) qui travestit sa voix, et que Harry en joue en sortant la question récurrente de l'époque : "est-ce que vous (les Beatles) allez vous remettre ensemble ?"
Et puis... les deux personnages principaux s'appellent, comme par hasard, Harry et John.
Deux mecs bourrés dans un bar, ça ne vous rappelle rien ? Et qui finissent par se faire jeter du bar ? Ha ha ha !
Alors, est-ce que c'est la fameuse histoire de John qu'Harry s'est amusé à mettre en scène ici ? Bien possible, non ?
Voila le texte complet. Ça peut aider.
Pour suivre, il s'agit de la version demo originale (la seconde)
The Flying Saucer song
Not really a song
- Harry Nilsson
Scene: A big-city bar in the southwest US about 1972 – typical bar sounds with glasses clinking and people murmuring.
Harry: Hey, what’s happening?
John: Oh nothing much, same old crap.
Harry: So how’s your old lady?
John: Oh she’s fine. How’s yours?
Harry: OK, although I had a weird experience the other night.
John: What was that?
Harry: What was that.
John: I don’t know, I just asked that. Feedback I think.
Harry: What’s it mean?
John: What’s it mean? It sounded electronic.
Bartender: How you doing boys? Want a drink? What’s it gonna be?
Harry: So anyway I had a weird experience the other night. So I noticed . . .
John: Oh yeah?
Harry: I’ll just tell you about it.
John: Let’s order a drink first.
Bartender: ‘Scuse me.
Harry: Just walking along minding my own business and I looked off to the right and I saw this strange light
Bartender: Thought he was going to order a drink. I’ll be back in a minute.
Harry: Anyway it got me thinking about this poem I read once.
