At the exact point in this song where they start singing "1 2 3 4 5 6 7, all good children go to heaven," I always start getting goosebumps and find myself transported somewhere else.  Pure genius.

Transported to somewhere like…heaven, you mean?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

I wish they didn't fade out some songs so quickly…this is a good example, as well as While My Guitar Gently Weeps.

That bit is creepy.

 

Great song though, love it. I Also like how that little bit in the middle of Carry That Weight refers back to this song.

Well, I think it's more a reflection of Lennon's typically cheeky and wry commentary about religious "dogma" (which is always bad, of course).

Coincidentally there are 7 levels. You Never Give Me Your Money has loads of seventh chords, it is one of the best chord progressions the Beatles ever did.

"And in the End the Love you take is equal to the Love you make"
"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

Along with "Dear Prudence" this is the best performed and produced Beatles song. It's hard to believe they were breaking up. There's so much group interplay and instrumental virtuosity. And Paul's lead vocal is beyond belief, right up to the "yes indeed mama mama ah ah" ad-lib. Sure, they've written better songs, but this one I don't know. It's so perfect.

Too bad Ringo doesn't even play on "Dear Prudence"! Albeit Paul rocks the fuck out towards the end (in my mind-his best drumming)

BUT i should

stay-on-topic Me and "You Never Give Me Your Money" have had some very INTENSE moments in my life…a-hard-days-night-john-3

"I never give you my pillow, I only send you my invitation and in the middle of the celebration: I break down"
That's when I get chills (during the coda in "Carry That Weight" – Iguess; I'msuremanychills occur when I listen to Abbey Road the whole way through) 

 

Richie Havens did a version that says "1234567-All God's children go to Heaven" instead of "good" hahahah ~trippy?

I love the fact that the famous medley starts with this track that is like a little medley of it's own. I find myself transported somewhere magical right from the start! The whole production and execution of this track is ethereal. It's The Beatles at their best with McCartney right where he should be…on top and in charge!
