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. 


 

At the end of the drum break? Ringo counts out the measures during that, and he screams on 8. Is that what you meant?

Whatever. It just sounds like a cat going, "Mreeeeeeeow!" 

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

Actually, it sorta does... I wonder what you'd have to do to make a cat make that noise

Any odd sounds and/or noises?
Every song on every album from Rubber Soul onward! I think that's part of why they are all considered groundbreaking, gamechanging, classic albums!

The early Parlophone and Capitol issues had differences...

On the song 'What Goes On' there is a version that doesn't have the outro guitar lick and in that spot you hear Ring in the background say 'I feel fine'.

There are tons actually...

 

lemme think

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the squeaking noise from Helter Skelter during the solo, i really want to know what it is.

The first time i heard it was on the bus to my friends house as i was going there for a couple of drinks with him, i didn't think much of it but it confused it a lot, anyway once i got there we had quite a few drinks and lets just say he gets a bit angry once intoxicated and for some reason i thought i'd try and sit him down next to the computer and play it through so he could help me wonder what it was. Anyway he was definitely too drunk to hear it and got so angry at it he stormed out the house, a bit dramatic.

 

I think there is a similar noise in Get Back during the second solo. Either that or The Beatles' solos play the equivalent of a dog whistle in my ears.

It would deserve earphones to solve the question but I always heard like an odd leakage or something on the E chord right after the last 'and I don't know why' in 'I Want To Tell You' (and no mention of that on the What Goes On site ahdn_paul_02!)

I'm just gonna mention this because nobody else has yet and it's not on the "What Goes On" page on the main Beatles Bible site:

In the song "What Goes On," the second time that Ringo sings "Tell me why," John shouts in the background "We already told you why!."

I posted about that a long time ago, but only God knows where. It's in the left channel and as @Necko said, it is very faint. At 1:27, Ringo sings "tell me why" and at 1:29, you can hear John say "we told you why". I'm sure Necko will agree that once you hear it, you'll not be able to listen to the song again without hearing it.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

You can hear it easier in the isolated vocals from Rock Band (@ 1:30). However the vocals are so damn good just listen to the full track.

At around 0:06 on I Feel Fine, just before John starts the riff, there seems to be a sound like someone sneezing. a-hard-days-night-john-4

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 loved listening to that as a kid! I imagined it was John leaning back on his chair after playing that chord! They say if you listen closely to some tracks you can hear the traffic outside, passing by on Abbey Road !
