A hard day's night : chanson de la semaine #57

En 1965, alors que la Beatlesmania est à son paroxysme, Peter Sellers, acteur anglais également au faîte de sa popularité (Docteur Folamour, La panthère rose) se livre une parodie très british à l'occasion du show télévisé "The Music Of Lennon & McCartney". Il interprète le texte de la chanson pop des Beatles, A hard day's night à la manière de l'acteur shakespearien Laurence Olivier récitant le monologue de Richard III.
Un mashup avant l'heure.


It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright

You know I work all day to get you money to buy you things
And it's worth it just to hear you say you're gonna give me everything
So why on earth should I moan, 'cause when I get you alone
You know I feel okay
When I'm home everything seems to be right
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight,tight,yeah
It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright

The Beatles - A hard day's night
Laurence Olivier - Richard III
