My Yellow Submarine theory

Recommended Posts

I think it is an analogy for the blind state of mass society.

Yellow is the colour of the coward. Living in a yellow submarine means obliviousness to the soulless nature of 9 to 5 life and obliviousness to the real nature of existance which sure isn't making money and working for the man. The song maybe says that people live in a cocoon which they are perfectly happy with.

What do you reckon?

I think it's just a silly song that let Ringo stretch his vocal chords a bit. Not that silly means bad, but I doubt it has any deep meaning.

That's what I think too...

Interesting theory and could very well be. Sometimes though I think people think too much about things and start coming up with theories like this just to make it interesting...But yknow, House does the same thing and he's always right so who am I to talk? haha

Now , just where in the hell have YOU been , missy ?!?! }:(

AWOL ! :)

Nifty theory ! However ,I can almost imagine it's origin in Ringo daydreaming while playing with some nifty tub toys - perhaps an actual yellow submarine ... ?!

:( i would guess it was something they wrote when they were all toasted...haha!! a fun song, that's all...everyone has their own opinions of what a song means to them... that's one of the great things about music. :puppyeyes: :rockon:

I always thought it´s a silly song written by Paul McCartney, very much in his "All together now" or "Obladi-oblada" style... I don´t think it has any meaning.

Smile though your heart is aching

Smile even though its breaking

When there are clouds in the sky, youll get by

If you smile through your fear and sorrow

Smile and maybe tomorrow

Youll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness

Hide every trace of sadness

Although a tear may be ever so near

Thats the time you must keep on trying

Smile, whats the use of crying?

Youll find that life is still worthwhile

If you just smile

:) :) :)

Sadlady - it's pretty simple . If you're Mid-Western ( Indianna, is it ) , then you already know how to behave yourself . If you're from the East or Califor-nai-eh - then you're under natural scrutiny , which goes without sayin' ! Those are general rules , mind you ... :laughing: :thumbsup:
