“Day Tripper Lyrics – Beatles”

image

Day Tripper” is a song by the Beatles, released as a double A-side single with “We Can Work It Out”.[2] Both songs were recorded during the sessions for the Rubber Soul album. The single topped the UK Singles Chart[3] and the song peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in January 1966.[4][2]

Composition

Main guitar riff
Under the pressure of needing a new single for the Christmas market,[5] John Lennon wrote much of the music and most of the lyrics, while Paul McCartney worked on the verses.

“Day Tripper” was a typical play on words by Lennon:

Day trippers are people who go on a day trip, right? Usually on a ferryboat or something. But [the song] was kind of … you’re just a weekend hippie. Get it?[6]

In the same interview, Lennon said:

That’s mine. Including the lick, the guitar break and the whole bit.[6]

In his 1970 interview with Rolling Stone, however, Lennon used “Day Tripper” as one example of their collaboration, where one partner had the main idea but the other took up the cause and completed it.[7] For his part, McCartney claimed it was very much a collaboration based on Lennon’s original idea.[8]

In Many Years From Now, McCartney said that “Day Tripper” was about drugs, and “a tongue-in-cheek song about someone who was … committed only in part to the idea.”[8] The line recorded as “she’s a big teaser” was originally written as “she’s a prick teaser.”[8]

According to music critic Ian MacDonald, the song:

…starts as a twelve-bar blues in E, which makes a feint at turning into a twelve-bar in the relative minor (i.e. the chorus) before doubling back to the expected B—another joke from a group which had clearly decided that wit was to be their new gimmick.[9]

In 1966 McCartney said to Melody Maker that “Day Tripper” and “Drive My Car” (recorded three days prior) were “funny songs, songs with jokes in.”

Natasha Bedingfield – Pocket full of Sunshine Lyrics

image

“Pocketful of Sunshine”

is a song performed by British singer and songwriter Natasha Bedingfield, released as the second single from her second North American studio album, of the same name (2008). Bedingfield co-wrote the song together with American songwriter Danielle Brisebois and American musician and songwriter John Shanks; Shanks also produced the track as well as performing on most of the instruments present. Epic Records serviced the song to mainstream radios on 11 February 2008 in the United States. It received an international release in spring 2011 to promote the release of Strip Me Away (2011).

Bedingfield noted “Pocketful of Sunshine” as her favorite, stating that it centers on escaping from one’s troubles. It adapts dance-pop and adult contemporary styles, differing from her previous recordings. Lyrically, the song discusses escapism and finding a peaceful place in difficult situations. The message is amplified by the melancholic tone of the lyrics mixing with the exuberance displayed in Bedingfield’s voice. “Pocketful of Sunshine” was well received by contemporary music critics; the majority of them named it as one of the album’s highlights. Several critics also praised it as a bright and lively summer tune.

“Pocketful of Sunshine” experienced commercial success in North America, peaking at number five in the United States on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and sold three million downloads, becoming her most successful single there. It also charted in Canada, peaking at #3 and receiving the platinum certification. It however did not replicate the success in North America as it charted moderately in several countries, reaching the top thirty in international territories.

The music video for

“Pocketful of Sunshine”

was released in spring 2008 and features Bedingfield escaping from a stressful situation and dancing on a roof with other background dancers. The video also portrays scenes of other people escaping their troubles, coming to Bedingfield for comfort. The single has been used widely in the media, being featured in movies and television series like Easy A, Degrassi: The Next Generation and The Ugly Truth.
