~ Paul McCartney on Tragical Mystery Tour
The Beatles: Tragical Histery Tour was The Beatles followup to Sgt. Lt. Pepper's Only Lonely Hearts Club Bandana, and it turned out to be a soundtrack to a Saturday morning film staring the Beatles and a tour bus running around the English countryside dressed in various assorted chicken costumes bringing a new sort of seriousness and dignity to their art, and touching on many of the philosophical questions that have plagued modern man for centuries.
The Beatles now turned their attentions to various plays and tragedies, (and eating tons of spaghetti with shovels) where ever they ended up. Of course, the horrid loss of Paul automatically makes the movie a tragedy, and one often wonders why, over the course of 90 minutes, this epic disaster was ever committed to film. Rated G. (Ages 2 and under)
The mystery to this day is exactly who was the black "waitress."
In the song "Glass Bunyon", from the Beatles self-titled double album, John Lennon sings:
- "Here's a clue for you all,
- The waitress was Paul"
We're still very uncertain what this means, seeing as Paul was white and the waitress was black, but, who knows? It may just be the inscrutable ramblings of a long-dead drug poet.
