Echo letters, Tuesday 23rd Oct: Murals a great idea

I TOTALLY agree with Jimmy Whitby (ECHO Letters, Oct 12) that murals would be a great idea for 2008 and that this is true working class art. Yes, there might be lots of expensive events planned for 2008 by the Culture Company, but not everyone in Liverpool can afford to see shows at the Philharmonic or the Empire.
Getting artists to paint large Belfast-style murals all over Liverpool would not only brighten up the place but give the city an identity and also give the people of Liverpool a chance to get involved with a worthwhile project or at least get to see meaningful art on their streets.
If the Irish artists from both the Catholic and Protestant communities working together want to paint the Beatles and they are going to involve Liverpool people, then that's great.
The City of Liverpool will benefit, can only benefit from this, for not only in 2008 but for many years to come.

A Song for Nigel Corlett, L19

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world.
Tou 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. In.
Don't you know it's going to be alright,
Alright, alright.
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.
Ut if you want money for people with minds that hate,
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait.
Don't you know it's going to be alright,
Alright, alright.
You say you'll change a constitution
Well, you know
We all want ot 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 going to be alright,
Alright, alright.
