the black album beatles

In Boyhood erhält Hauptfigur Mason von seinem Vater zum 15. Geburtstag das “Black Album” der Beatles. Es handelt sich um ein selbstgemachtes Mixtape mit Songs der Künstler nach der Trennung, die trotzdem irgendwie zusammen einen sehr eigenen und vertrauen Klang erzeugen. Wieviele eigene Erfahrungen und Detailliebe in den Film flossen erkennt man daran, dass Hawke das Album eigentlich für seine reale Tochter zusammenstellte. Der dazugehörige Brief und das Mixtape passten aber so gut zur fiktionalen Situation, dass Linklater die Geschichte in den Film einfließen ließ. Buzzfeed hat den ganzen Brief, hier das Ende.

Once when John was asked whether he would ever play with Paul again, he answered: “It would always be about, ‘Play what?’ It’s about the music. We play well together — if he had an idea and needed me, I’d be interested.”

I love that.

Maybe the lesson is: Love doesn’t last, but the music love creates just might.

Your mom and I couldn’t make love last, but you are the music, my man.

“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love…”

I love you. Happy birthday.

Your Dad
