Alice In Wonderland and The White Rabbit

Postby LatherPCL on Tue Feb 10, 2009 8:03 pm

I have read half on "Alice In Wonderland" already with the famous "Tea Party" coming up. It's a great read. It is great to read about the "White Rabbit". Besides JA's "White Rabbit" what other songs about Alice can you think of? Right now "Through The Looking Glass" by The Monkees comes to mind and Tom Petty did an "Alice In Wonderland" themed video for "Don't Come Around Here No More".

I don't know that that song was a song about the Alice from "Alice In Wonderland", but the girl's name was Alice. I think an expression from "Alice In Wonderland" got mentioned in "The Long And WInding Road" by The Beatles like the line that goes :

The wild and windy night
That the rain washed away
Has left "a pool of tears"
Crying for the day
Why leave me standing here
Let me know the way

"A Pool Of Tears" could have been inspired by Alice's pool of tears when she was 10 feet tall. I remember a song from "American Graffiti" called "The Stroll" in which the singer talks about strolling through "Wonderland". And a most glaring inspiration is The Beatle's "I Am The Walrus". I think John Lennon said he was inspired by "Alice In Wonderland" when composing "Do You Want To Know A Secret". That's about all I can think of right now

Took my time doing what? Reading Lewis Carrol? If it's that, then I just got through reading "Duma Key" by Stephen King and I have now gotten halfway through "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland". Good video, but their name is Hypnogaja, I think and no, I haven't heard of them. Got my head stuck in the 60s and 70s.

"What would you do if the clock ran backwards, and over the wall was a magic mirror?"

There must be hundreds of Lewis Carrol references in pop songs.
