Y is for...

Y is for..."We all live in a YELLOW SUBMARINE" by the Beatles.

I apologize for another nostalgia trip, but this was part of my generation.

Due to the popularity of the Beatles, this 1968 animated film voiced by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Star did fairly well at the box office and it's psychedelic, pop art images generated a new interest in animated film as an art form.

 Some of the songs from the film listed below are still used over 40 years later in a lot of the commercials we see and as background music in film and television.

All songs written by Lennon–McCartney, except where noted.
  1. "Yellow Submarine" – 2:38
  2. "Hey Bulldog" – 3:14
  3. "Eleanor Rigby" – 2:06
  4. "Love You To" (George Harrison) – 3:01
  5. "All Together Now" – 2:10
  6. "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" – 3:28
  7. "Think for Yourself" (Harrison) – 2:18
  8. "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" – 2:02
  9. "With a Little Help from My Friends" – 2:44
  10. "Baby, You're a Rich Man" – 3:03
  11. "Only a Northern Song" (Harrison) – 3:27
  12. "All You Need Is Love" – 3:57
  13. "When I'm Sixty-Four" – 2:37
  14. "Nowhere Man" – 2:44
  15. "It's All Too Much" (Harrison) – 6:28

In 1969 the YELLOW SUBMARINE soundtrack was the 10th album released by the Beatles in the United Kingdom.

I was able to share this film with my kids when they were growing up and they have shared it with their kids. The YELLOW SUBMARINE is timeless and fun. Just wanted to share some of the crazy artwork from the movie here. For a long time I thought it was the work of Peter Max but I later discovered that he did not work on the film. Click on the word YELLOW or any of the photos for a link to the trailer or the soundtrack. Y is for YELLOW SUBMARINE.
