Commenting on a few of the latest:  

- my memories of the Beatles when I was a kid were mainly thinking "Hey Jude" was awesome when it came on the radio, because it was so much longer than all the other songs and it was a great sing-along to belt out at the top of your lungs and annoy your parents and thinking the cover of the Rubber Soul and Revolver albums were the weirdest things ever.  I distinctly remember my mom owning Rubber Soul, Revolver and Sgt. Pepper's.  When I could be bothered to turn off my Thomas Dolby, Kajagoogoo and Oxo 45s, we would throw those albums onto the giant cabinet record-player stereo we had in our family room.  We tended to favor Rubber Soul, and the two songs I remember listening to the most, and thusly I grew up associating them as a pair with each other, were "Michelle" (what up, #111!) and "Norwegian Wood".  Those must have been our favorites, because I don't distinctly remember listening to any other songs on the album, although I'm sure we did.  We would cue those two up over and over, and then after awhile, switch over to Barry Manilow's "Copacabana" or "Hooked on Classics."  "Norwegian Wood" didn't rank in my top 25, but it probably would if I did it today.

- our favorite on Pepper was undoubtedly "A Day in the Life".  The more we listened to it and once I started taking piano lessons, the more I was in awe of the final chord.  I remember my brother and I would take out our Casio watches and start timing the instant they hit that final chord.  We would slowly turn the sound up on the stereo incrementally as the chord continued so we could still make it out, so we could time how long you could actually keep hearing it.  We would then inevitably argue over how long it actually could be heard once we got the stereo up to full volume, futilely trying to make out the last vestiges of that wondrous sound.  As others have noted, that transition from Paul saying "went into a dream" and then John dreamily firing up the "AAAHH, AAHH, AAHH, AAHHs" is one of the top 13 things the Beatles ever did in any of their songs.  

- we rarely put "Revolver" on, which I feel was a missed opportunity.  I can only assume my mom kept that one out of our hands because she was afraid we would try and color in the cover with crayons or something.  

- my later years as my tastes diversified, I really only had and listened to the Blue and Red compilations, and spent my time trying to figure out why "Old Brown Shoe" was on the blue.

Aw, that is so kind of you guys.  Let's send it to the Boys & Girls Club, either the national org or one near you.  My dad was pretty much solely responsible for getting one built in the town where I grew up, doing all the organization and fundraising, and as a result the club was named after him.  I served on the board of the Memphis chapter for a bit while I lived there, too.  Great organization that, in addition to all the good works they do, fundraises and spends wisely.

$100 has been donated to the Human Fu........i mean, the Greater Memphis chapter of the Boys & Girls Club. I should know better than to play with my Revolver when i don't have to....

32.  Taxman (Revolver, 1966)

Beatles version:  Spotify  YouTube

 

Suggested cover:  Junior Parker

I like the Junior Parker version but SRV did what I think is the best cover of this song using the guitar in a way only he could.

This probably sounds weird, but it is one of those random things I associate a song with, and I always think of it whenever the climax builds up to the final chord. One time in college, a bunch of us were hanging out late at night, and A Day In A Life was on. The climax with the orchestra had started, and I looked over to the hallway, and one of my friends was standing there in the entrance. All you could see was the silhouette of his body. He is really tall. His legs were standing perfectly straight, and I could see his body slowly swaying back and forth to the climax playing, and when the final chord was hit, he slumped over with his long hair hanging, and his arms dangling. He stood that way for about 7 seconds or so, and then he raised back up. I remember weird stuff. Does that mean I'm weird? :oldunsure:

One last word about A Day in the Life.

Ever since hearing @Shaft41's daughter's remarkable cover of Let It Be and commenting that an old musician friend said the key to a good cover was finding the hinges in a song, i've been thinking about that word. That's what makes A Day in the Life so momentous - it's the hinge upon which the world of modern music turns.

Up to that point it was all about influences. Blues, Woody Guthrie, Satchmo, Elvis, skiffle, Berry, R&B, Li'l Richard, Dylan, folk, Bo Diddley, Buddy Holly, whatever. The village that the Lonely Hearts Club Band played to & about was all we lonely people and where music do come from. Day in the Life capped it by being first aspirational, then conversational, then invitational. "We can be this common and we can be this grand and it will all add up to something mad & wonderful, you'll see. Pick up your voice and join in!" And that note, that daring and daring note, said "next?" and music was ours. After all the influences, what we were finally making was us, ours. I can make anything sound like The Wizard of Oz - that's pretty much all i can do. But i think that's it. Dunnnnnnnnnnnnhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Holy cow, this is beautiful.  I love that this thread, along with the appreciation for the music itself, is also giving me a new paradigm into which to think about music, and not just the Beatles.  When I told my wife and daughter what you said about her finding the hinges in "Let It Be", we had a great discussion of what that exactly meant, and your comments put the biggest smile on her face.  I've been meaning to tell you that.  I thank all of you for encouraging her in a time where that doesn't always happen.

Just got home from hospital visit for the "-scopies". 🤕🏥

Hiatial hernia seems to be my issue regarding my stomach. Good news I think. 👍Coulda been worse. 

 

Bad news - nothing is ever simple. All the laxatives they gave me to take at home before the procedure did not even come close to flushing me out. 

Well, I did throw up a lot. 😖

At the hospital they fed me mega lax's - oh boy! Both ends were expelling. 😂

And of course, that meant more time in hospital. 

 

Worst part tho - I still haven't finished my "I'm So Tired" comments and I have missed quite a few posts here. 

Gonna catch up, now that I am home. 

 

Finally, krista4, I know you are a poop expert... I really could have used some guidance here! 🤔

If I need a follow up, I'll be sure to pm you for advice! 👌

Tell me - is following experience an echo of anastesia, a manic's delusional "idea of reference", a cosmic synchronicity or just dumb random noise? 

 

As soon as a finished posting and reading here, I turned on the news. 

The man began, "... a massive dump, they saw it coming. It's not unexpected..." - actual story, as I eventually learned, was about the wiki leaks email dump. Ha. OK. 

 

So, I power up my phone, come here, look at the newest 1st page:

Just got home from dinner.  Definitely no write-ups tonight.  Tomorrow morning's a mess at work, too, so late afternoon is the best I can do.  I am hoping to post #4 and #3 tomorrow so we can have the Big Reveal on Friday, as it should be.  

@Rustoleum, I thought about your fun idea for a while but I don't think I can make it work.  My write-ups for #2 and #1 will make it clear which is which, and I don't want to modify what I'm writing to try to "mask" stuff.  Love the thought, though.

4.  I've Just Seen A Face (Help!, 1965)

Beatles version:  Spotify  YouTube

At the other end of the spectrum from "For No One," this time Paul describes the breathless feeling of the first inklings of falling in love.  It's a simple song in comparison to many of my other favorites, but it's perfect in the way it propels you through, with that fast tempo and the lyrical cascades expressing the insistent nature of these feelings.  I love the all-acoustic nature (first time recorded for a Beatles song, though later that day "Yesterday" became the second), beginning with those falling, double-tracked triplets that make me feel like I'm actually, y'know, falling.  Then the song moves into a folk, almost-Bluegrass sound, with no bass and with only Ringo joining the guitars by brushing the snare.  

The first verse is sung without Paul's having taken a breath, adding to the urgency and excitement he's expressing; he's able to repeat this on the fourth verse as well.  The choruses feature Paul harmonizing with himself, and his vocals in these sections even outdo what he accomplishes in the verses.  This song ranks high on the "can I sing along to it" scale, as I can sing both of the vocal parts (not at the same time) just as Paul did, albeit not with quite that same skill.  Paul's acoustic accompaniment and George's 12-string work, in particular his solo, are excellent, and Ringo adds the perfect C&W feel with the brushed snares and maracas.

The lyrics are simple on their face, but, when combined with the propulsion of the tempo and the cascades, they perfectly capture that sense of head-over-heels infatuation.  I love the internal rhyme schemes as well, which give more texture to the verses' vocal that doesn't jump around on many notes.  For instance, on these lines, note how the three sets of rhymes often come mid-measure:  "I have never known the like of this I've been alone and I have missed things and kept out of sight but other girls were never quite like this."  

Pure pop/C&W/folk/bluegrass perfection from Paul.

Mr. krista:  “I love that song.  First, the guitar part in the beginning is really fine playing, not pretentious.  Song is so fast, with that anticipatory feeling of falling in love that you really believe him.  Kind of repeats himself, in that feeling of lalala, you know what I’m talking about because I’m a dude whistling to get laid.  Not many love songs invoke that feeling of falling in love, that excitement and anticipation.  Kind of a master song writer thing."

Suggested cover:  Leon Russell intensified bluegrass version.  Brandi Carlile does a decent cover, but only live, with crowd noise that I find too distracting to link any of them.

I set a strict two-measure limit on the amount of Bob Seger I'll listen to, but within that time it certainly did sound like a Dear Prudence ripoff.

Such a great song and so fun. I remember being maybe 13 and my dad taking me to Harmony House to buy a Beatles CD. I had discovered classic rock and listened to his Sgt Peppers CD 100x over. Then I got the red and blue greatest hits albums but this was my first time picking out an album of my own. I don’t know why I chose Help. It just called to me. Of course I loved Help and Ticket to Ride but the song that blew me away from the first listen was I’ve Just Seen a Face. Being a kid who was experiencing that kind of excitement and attraction and wonder that’s only possible in those early teen years, this song encapsulated how I felt better than anything I had ever heard. It’s actually only in the last few years that I’ve realized the song isn’t my hidden gem but a song so many other feel the same way about. It spoke to 13 year olds across 40 years and 3 generations.
