I was recently listening to A Day In The Life, and when the orchestra is fading out, I heard a chair creak and shortly after some said "Shhh!". I was quite surprised by this, thinking George Martin and the sound engineers would have edited this out. Has anyone else heard anything like this on a song?

I've heard the piano bench (??) squeaking on that, too.  I'll have to listen for the "Shhh."  One of my current favorites is hearing John (?) shout "Fncking hell!" in the background on Hey Jude. You can hear it very clearly on the remastered version.

Have you seen the What Goes On site? It's full of stuff like this. Squeaky drum pedals, coughing, whispered words of wisdom etc.

I'll make sure to check that out sounds interesting. As well, in Yesterday at 0:19 you can hear a slight yelping noise in the background.

I hear a sound in I Want You (She's So Heavy) that sounds a lot like my phone when it vibrates. What Goes On doesn't mention it, so I guess it's intentional. What is it?

There is this really weird noise throughout the whole of Octopus's Garden, sounds like a walrus dying or something. I think I also heard it on Yellow Submarine, Don't Pass Me By, With A Little Help From My Friends, What Goes On and few others. Anyone else heard this?

1) How do you know what a dying Walrus sounds like?

2) It's just Ringo

I sometimes here something right at the beginning of "I Feel Fine" that sounds like someone whispering gloop. It really freaked me out the first time I heard it.

Wikipedia cites Revolution in the Head for it being a bottle of Blue Nun. I don't own the book, so I can't verify it. What Goes On just says it's a bottle.

Revolution in the Head says, "At the end, the luckiest accident in any Beatles recording produced a striking conclusion. As McCartney reached the low inversion of C major on the group's customised Hammond organ, the bottom note vibrated a bottle of wine standing on the instrument's Leslie cabinet, creating an eery rattle." No mention of Blue Nun.

1. Not a weird sound, but at the end of "Act Naturally," you can hear a faint "chhhh" sound from the guitar strings. I don't know what exactly causes it, but I play guitar, and I hear it sometimes when I play. 

2. Polythene Dan gets credit for this one. One day, he was listening to his iPod with headphones. Suddenly, he sat up and said, "Did anyone else hear a cat?" We all told him no. (I'm allergic to anything with fur.) A little while later, we were listening to "Birthday" in the car, and he said, "Listen for a cat." I listened the whole song, but I had no clue what he was talking about. The next time "Birthday" came on in the car, I asked him when it was. "Right before 'Birthday. I would like you to dance,'" was what he told me. "So at the end of the drum break?" "Yeah." I listened, and I heard it! It was the funniest thing ever, and my dad (who was driving) asked what was so funny. Polythene Dan told him, and he went back a few seconds just so he could hear it. We call it Birthday Cat.
