Amazing | Reviewer: Bill Graves | 11/1/07
I'm amazed at how many of you know more than each other. I suppose being 13 or 15 or being a philosophy major makes someone an automatic expert. The fact that John wrote this song when discovering the same school that said he would amount to nothing analyzed Beatles songs in class probably means nothing. I guess the quote, "Let the f**kers analyze that!" has no bearing. Maybe I should get a philosophy degree so I can understand better what John meant by that...

I understand that the song Yellow Submarine was written at the Coastguard Cottages,Dunwich Heath,Suffolk, England, where the Beatles were staying at the time.The lyrics were 'full speed ahead, Mr. Barker, full speed ahead', Mr. Barker being the owner of the cottages.

As for the deep meaning of the song, that’s the beauty of this dynamic group. They knew how to entertain and make fun-songs and yet get serious with underlying political and spiritual knowledge for those who will look, listen and understand.
Having been a long time fan of the Beatles and reviewing my own experiences in life, I find the song more interesting today than before. It was written after The Fab Four returned from the Himalayas where they peered into much esoteric mysticism. After all sort of experiences, a major turn off, busted the bubble of the entire trip when they learned of the Maharishi’s sexual advances towards a young woman and an incident with Rosemary’s Baby” actress Mia Farrow. The Maharishi was one of the reasons, as with many Stars, the Beatles went to the Himalayas to study esotericism and the meaning of life. He was creator of the Transcendental Meditation Movement, and the Fab Four referred to him as “The Fool On The Hill”. After the shock they went back to Abbey Road, pondered awhile and then began to write about what they saw and learned. Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Magical Mystery Tour were two of the major recorded albums of songs that represent these experiences.
In the mystics, colors have meaning, and Yellow is the color that signifies life, as with the color and the life giving energy from the Sun. Green is the color of nature and dark green the color of material gain, wealth and prosperity. In matter of fact the movie Yellow Submarine brought all of these vivid colors to the screen as it presented a smorgasbord of flamboyant paint to the mind of the viewer. The symbol of the Big Brother was portrayed as the BLUE Meanies, as dark blue represents power, integrity and seriousness.
However, the opening line always struck me as interesting. Life for them was elsewhere but in order to go to place of submarines, you had to submerge yourself into a vessel, a living submarine and a yellow one at that. The Beatles sailed up to the sun (life giving energy) and then to the sea of green beneath the waves. They lived pretty freely beneath the turmoil because of their wealth.
So with that being said, I believe that the Yellow Submarine is about our bodies which our spirits (from the town where we were born) are submerged in this world. As they reiterate over and over in the chorus that WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE. The sea in many books of mystics, as well as the Bible represents ALL of the people on earth and their emotions (the rise and fall of the waves of Helter Skelter.) And then the Band begins to play, “The Beatles” who intrigued and still do, generations with their happy melodies for both the light hearted as well as deep lyrics for those who like to think and ponder.
I find it interesting that last year Paul McCartney, one of the two surviving group members, turned 64 and I recalled his famous song which asks, “Will you still love me when I turn sixty-four?”
The meaning of this song | Reviewer: joe simmons
Yellow Submarine was written when the Beatles were on tour, they lived out of their rented schoolbus, and everyday they used copius amounts of LSD. Ringo, while hallucinating, swore the yellow schoolbus was really a submarine and that it was flowing through a "sea of green" (native grasses and hilly vegetation.)
If you don't believe me, check out Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test, there is a mention of this.
