Happy to see "The Night Before" getting some love.  Thought that would be one of those "you're only now getting to this?" songs.  Thought the same with Dig a Pony, actually.  Glad some people appreciate those.

hmmm...is this gonna be another one I get to write-up?

maybe.

Yet another example of how it's not just quality but also quantity. Amazing how many awesome songs were created by this group.

Also, I woke up this morning with "Run For Your Life" in my head, even though I haven't listened to it in awhile. I assume this means I'm homicidal?

Mr. krista's original comments on "She Said She Said" from last summer's listening sessions expanded upon Ringo's drumwork:  "This is a ####### jam.  Super-awesome guitar.  Someone decided they were going to start recording Ringo’s drums well. The kick drum in particular sounds awesome, like what it should sound like.  I know I’ve heard these beats in other songs, like a Beastie Boys song. Because they got clean sound, and Ringo is a ####### metronome, that people could use that sound out of the context of that song and manipulate it, because it’s so clean, and on time and steady, so you can rap over it.  You can mix it to sound great.  And I can’t imagine that song without those fills."

Ahhhhhh, I should have specified on each of these that those are all the people currently tied for the lead, just in random order.  With the more recent posts, we’re down to a three-way tie (pecorino among them).

I went back and planned to read all k4's write-ups--as in, "just the write-ups".

Impossible. So much good stuff here. I am up to Feb. 4th and #104.

My goal is to be caught up for the Top 25 explosion.

A Day In The Life:

Woke up, fell outta bed, dragged a comb across my ahead. 

Found my way downstairs and had a cup. And looking up  I noticed I was late.

Found my coat and grabbed my hat.

Made the bus in seconds flat.

 

I find it completely impossible not to tap my feet and nod my head during this part. No, I just can't help it.  :)

The part about going upstairs for a smoke has to do with British law requiring bus riders to climb up on the roof to have a cigarette.

Otis has still got it.  I think this thread is active, but then he starts one like that and reels in a dozen pages in a few days.  Masterful.

the old Otis would have thrown in a healthy amount of 3rd person.  Not sure if it would have made it better ...or just more Otisfied.

Sorry for the delay on the all-important yet random (Getz, random as to line-drawing) #26.  I didn't want to cause a nationwide panic by telling you, but we lost internet for a couple of hours this evening, and as you could imagine these masterpiece write-ups can't be composed on 4G.

Can I just say that this morning i looked at post #1, saw the songs remaining and thought, hmmm,  I can't sing anything left. Then, later today, i had a glass of wine and sang harmony with myself for the first time ever. Wine: it makes everything possible!

This is gonna kill some lists, as well as the consensus.

Guest write-up by Oliver Humanzee

26.  Something (Abbey Road, 1969)

Beatles version:  Spotify  YouTube

  • I have a hard time believing that the pie-faced painted stick named Pattie Boyd managed to inspire not just this fantastic song by one of the greatest bands of all time, but also many terrible songs by wealthy racist and hall of fame parent Eric Clapton.
     
  • Boyd apparently dumped George when he decided that he needed concubines to fulfill his spiritual growth, which was coincidentally when Eric Clapton was making advances.  And despite marrying and divorcing two bajillionaires, her divorce from Clapton left her nearly broke.  She devoted many words of her memoir (entitled, barftastically, Wonderful Tonight) to her adventures in learning how to use public transportation.  Thus proving herself to be as intelligent as she is beautiful.
     
  • While George was fleshing out the lyrics, John would frequently sing either "a cauliflower" or "a pomegranate" instead of "no other lover" and honestly I prefer those to the lyrics that made it on the record.  
     
  • The guitar solo is measured and, as Krista would say, languorous, without being plodding or self-conscious.  It neatly propels the song into one of the greatest middle eights in the Beatles' catalogue. 
     
  • And rather than being vague or incomplete, describing his lover's attractive qualities as "something" embraces and wonderfully expresses the ineffable, pre-conscious mystery of human attraction.  Or something.  
     
  • Krista has more to say about this song than I do, and agreeing to write about it was "something" of a mistake.  It has taken me like 8 hours and the best I could do is crap all over Eric Clapton after reading many excerpts of Boyd's memoirs.  You gotta be fuggin' nuts to do 200 of these.  I'm going to go to bed.

Mrs. Humanzee:  "Frank Sinatra said this was the best love song ever written.  I don't much favor the introductory verse of it, but my three favorite Beatles songs are, in no particular order: (1) the bridge in 'Something,' (2) the drum fills in 'Strawberry Fields Forever,' and (3) the last 23 seconds of 'Polythene Pam' leading into the first 47 seconds of 'She Came In Through The Bathroom Window.'  So I guess I'm saying I both agree and disagree with The Chairman of the Board.  So moved."  

Suggested cover:  George's favorite cover of the song was from James Brown.
