“Revolution” is a song by the Beatles, written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. Three versions of the song were recorded in 1968, all during sessions for the Beatles’ self-titled double album, commonly known as “the White Album”: a slow, bluesy arrangement (titled “Revolution 1”) that would make the final cut for the LP; a more abstract musical collage (titled “Revolution 9”) that originated as the latter part of “Revolution 1” and appears on the same album; and the better-known, faster, hard rock version similar to “Revolution 1”, released as the B-side of the “Hey Jude” single. Although the single version was issued first, it was recorded several weeks after “Revolution 1”, as a re-make specifically intended for release as a single.

Revolution 1:

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it’s evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don’t you know that you can count me out
Don’t you know it’s gonna be 
All right, all right, all right
You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We’d all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We’re doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait
Don’t you know it’s gonna be 
All right, all right, all right

You say you’ll change the constitution
Well, you know
We’d all love to change your head
You tell me it’s the institution
Well, you know
You better free your mind instead

But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain’t gonna make it with anyone anyhow

Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right
You know it’s gonna be all right
Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right

I’m Ukrainian Canadian, an artist synesthetes*, Abstract Expressionist. Emotions are very important to me. When you are in art all your life is at this particular moment. It’s like improvisation in music. You need explain all life in one moment, in one phrase, in one white square… Emotion is a relationship with other people. My art is a relationship with others too. I like challenge, I like to make something new every day, on the end I like to win. And more important I like to win Every day. For me to finish my canvas is like red line for the runner or reaching the peak of a mountain for a climber, I will die for this. I love colours, I love paint, and I love canvas, white canvas. I like even prepare canvas for painting, I just love to be an artist. When I’m painting I feel like a runner, marathon 42 km. runner dying for red line, dying to reach the finish line. I feel like the climber whose single goal driving him all the time is to reach the peak of the mountain. I want to succeed. I love to win. I feel myself so liberated when create art. First, because I can produce something that is influence on human’s mood or state of mind, and second, because I can escape this reality. And I like this feeling. My paintings have been sold for years to offices, shops and private residences in Canada, Australia, USA, Europe etc. Up until now in 18 countries. I am continuously developing my style of painting, keeping it interesting for you to come back for another visit. Don’t hesitate to contact me, I will be happy to answer all your questions. Thank you for your interest hope you like it! synesthetes* - Synesthesia in art has referred to a wide variety of Atits experiments that have explored the co-operation of the senses e.g. seeing and hearing; the word synesthesia is from the Ancient Greek, "together," and Aisthēsis, "sensation". In the genres of visual music, abstract film, abstract film, music visualization, audiovisual art and intermedia.
