The Rain Bassline is Insane.

I love the Day Tripper bass line as well as Rain since it's my favorite Beatle's song.

Some People on the article page claims that Paul must have played it.

I think it's likely that George played it, it's more of a riff than a melodic bass line which Paul was famous for.

Hahaha, I already singled out "Nowhere Man" as being underappreciated!

Or A Day In The Life or ANY other Peppers song (except for WYWY and SLH for obvious reasons).


*stupid voice*
What obvious reasons?

*regular voice*

Oh, "A Day In The Life" is AMAZING! But I think the best part is the piano in "woke up, fell out of bed." (Right after "in seconds flat")

OK, everyone in unison…

1, 2, 3…

PAUL McCARTNEY IS INCREDIBLE!  

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I totally agree with you, but Paperback Writer is the more commercial of the two, so it probably wouldn't have sold as much if Rain was the A-side

WYWY (that sounds like the initials for some computer interface) is played with Indian instruments only. Actually George is the only Beatle playing there.

Paulsbass, She knows why. We all those to songs dont have a Bassline.
