Transcript of Across the Universe

ACROSS THE UNIVERSE Bhavini Patel and Grace Quinsey THE SWINGING SIXTIES The 1960s were a radical time, full of change and social revolution. Recreational drug use ran rampant, and was considered normal among many musicians. Europe lost a lot of their hold on several countries; 32 countries gained independence. The sixties had much change
the SONG The Beatles were a 50's band that wrote many songs. "Across the Universe" is one example of their contrary, rebellious music that everyone loved. The song sounds very dissident, with slow tones
and funky notes. words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup
they slither while they pass
they slip away across the universe The song represents the young rebels who refused to let their ideas and their world be changed or squashed. “Nothing’s gonna change my world” is the main repetitive line in the chorus "nothing's gonna change my world" Canadians were greatly affected
by the Beatles.They were a
world-renown group, and their
music helped the revolutionary
youth become adults who
changed the world. "Across the Universe" shows how the new adults of the age wanted to change the world and make the world the best it could possible be. All the horrors and inequalities they had seen throughout their lives were calling forth to them.
“That call me on and on across the universe.” "Images of broken light which
dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box
they tumble blindly as
they make their way across the universe"
