Song Description

Henning Olsen has released a masterful original track as a prelude to his forthcoming album, in every way honoring the Beatles' extraordinary legacy. It is called "Love and Sunshine Forever" and is a superb amalgam of psychedelic-era Beatles music; the cellos are chugging, the guitars are biting, the harmonies are huge. Classic Pepper-esque elements are all there including the crowds, a calliope and a Victorian circus hustler summoning the public to "roll up, roll up" to the show on his megaphone. The lyrics are a perfect distillation of Beatles phantasmagoria from the "Walrus" period and combined with the vast production it could well be mistaken for an unreleased Beatles track of that era. "Love and Sunshine Forever" belongs high on the playlists of every retro rock radio station. Dave Blackburn producer, engineer San Diego, CA USA

Story Behind the Song

The lyrics have words and associations close to originals, but they are always twisted in respect of copyright.

Lyrics

LOVE AND SUNSHINE FOREVER
( A tribute to the Beatles) © Henning Olsen

Megaphone: Roll up Roll up ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls
Mister and Missisipies, I can tell you, a splendid time is guarantied for all

We hope you will enjoy the show tonight
Nothing is real but everything's all right
We will take you back in time to where it all began
So have a seat and take a break and, let's celebrate the band

LOVE LOVE
M: Roll up Roll up boys and girls

The kaleidoscope will look into the sky
Where submarines and a clean machines will pass you by
You might see a walrus in Albert Hall with diamonds high above
And fly with the fool and chairman Mao into a world of love

LOVE LOVE
AND SUNSHINE
FOREVER
M: Please welcome her Majesty and Lovely Rigby on this helter skelter

SOLO

Here comes the mother natures sun, and a paperback writer for the fun
Turn of your mind, we'll turn you on, the magical tour has just begun
The ache man and Mr. somewhere man come together back in USSA again
A blackbird is singing a peaceful verse, flying across the universe

LOVE LOVE M: The octopus will perform with little piggies
AND SUNSHINE
FOREVER
M: All you need is an open mind

LOVE LOVE
LOVE
YEAH YEAH YEAH
M: Ladies and gentlemen: Prepare for the landing and let it be
