I certainly hope this gets posted. I have a tendancy to go too far out even for International Times, and we should all know how groovy that was to Beatles history. For those obsessed with Beatles music, there is never enough even for those so incluned to search out alternates, demos and unrealeased. But then there is this little internet magical mystery that seems too heavy to be true, where a hapless wanderer stumbled into another dimension from deep in the California desert, only to discover there that the Beatles never broke up.
As the story goes, taking a huge risk, this space-time castaway swiped a cassette with recordings from a post Beatles era, some say Spector circa 1981. Any serious Beatles and solo Beatles fan would immediately declare that this album is nothing more than a mash up of existing post Beatles solo stuff. Much of it past the year 1981. BUT what is remarkable about this so called mash up is that it really works... I mean better than expected. There is a song on the album called "Soldier Boy," which is my favorite by the way... but I digress. To the Beatles initiated this seems like a brilliant mash up of McCartney's"Listen to What the Man Said" and Lennon's "Isolation.," Harrison's "Woman Don't Cry for Me" and Starr's "I Don't Believe You," with a few other spices thrown in for good measure.
The song beatifully blends McCartney's "Soldier Boy Kisses girl leaves behind a tragic world....you can hear the people say...people say..." with Lennon's "people say we got it made, don't they know we're so afraid..." And of course McCartney's "soldier boy ksses girl..." blends magically with Lennon's "just a boy and little girl, trying to change the whole wide world..." Both songs work so well together here it seems as if they where written together
But then we have the wacky story about this "Everyday Chemistry" album not just being some mysterious, clever mash up but rather a brand new song from another dimension in our multiverse where the Beatles never broke up, all are alive and well and still touring, as of 2009. As a scientist who understands a bit of physics, the story is not at all impossible. In fact, the parameters of the story fit in with a likely possibility that this album is really from a parallel space-time to ours with a slight divergence of say less than 2.5%. Of course there is really no way to be certain, except that the story clues also point to a fun filled Beatles prank, far greater than Paul McCartney trying to secretly pass himself off as the Fireman. This prank has garnered no profit or record sales for the Beatles, as the album was given away for free. So the mystery remains, is "Everyday Chemistry" the real mccoy from another dimension or another secret McCartney project, on the order of Thrillington or Fireman, but has not been routed out by "deep fans?" Or perhaps you think the complete album is bunk and should be removed from the internet for copyright infringement?
