Yeah, I don't remember what song I meant, I think it was I Want To Tell You, but I don't know why I would mix those up.

Easy mistake to make, really. Both Harrison songs, both good. Don't worry.

It's changing from time to time, but at the moment I absolutely adore "And Your Bird Can Sing" and "She Said She Said". Ask me in one week, and maybe my answer will be "Here, There And Everywhere". ahdn_paul_06 Or "Yellow Submarine" … no, that will never happen.

Tough one, but I think I've got to go with Tomorrow Never Knows. Its like they transformed LSD/or drugs in general into a song.

     1. Tomorrow Never Knows

     2. She Said She Said

     2. Here, There And Everywhere

     2. Love You To

     5. I'm Only Sleeping

     6. Got To Get You Into My Life

     7. For No One

     8. Eleanor Rigby

     9. Taxman

     10. Good Day Sunshine

     11. And Your Bird Can Sing

     12. Doctor Robert

     13. I Want To Tell You

     14. Yellow Submarine

Yellow Submarine is the only track I skip when I'm listening to Revolver -- I really enjoy the rest of the tunes. a-hard-days-night-george-9 -- if Rain and Paperback Writer were to be included, Rain would split the number one spot with TNK and Paperback Writer would overtake Good Day Sunshine.

I like And Your Bird Can Sing the best. I love the harmonies whenver they sing "MEEEEEEEEE" and also the guitar of course.

But Tomorrow Never Knows comes in at a close second. I just melt into it whenver I hear it.

It's a tie between Taxman, Doctor Robert, and Eleanor Rigby.

Mine would have to be Taxman.  Up until 9 years old, everything I heard was pretty much the early Beatles stuff.  Show & Tell at school (4th grade) someone put on Revolver and I was blown away!  Everything on Revolver is excellent, but since I can recall where I was and what I was doing the first time I heard it, yeah it's gotta be Taxman.

I'm embarrassed to say how many Beatles songs I first heard, not in full, but in snippets of the "Stars on 45" medley in 1981! "Taxman" and many other Revolver classics among them. Yeesh…at least I knew the original "Yellow Submarine" since the age of 5.

'She Said She Said.'  When I first it, I was blown away.  At the time, I was already a Beatles fan, but hadn't yet checked out Revolver.  When I finally got around to listening to the album, I couldn't believe I hadn't yet heard the best of the Beatles.  Each new song by them I listened to was like discovering new treasures of gold.  

 

As a side note, Revolver IMO was the album where the Beatles made the greatest musical leap from their previous album (in this case, Rubber Soul).  If there's one album where you can see the sharp division between their early and late periods, Revolver is it.

Over the past 5 years or so, Tomorrow Never Knows has become my favorite Revolver song and quite possibly my favorite Beatles song…and Revolver has generally nudged into my favorite Beatles album slot.

Honorable mention to I'm Only Sleeping, She Said She Said, Eleanor Rigby, And Your Bird Can Sing.  And everything else minus Yellow Submarine.

If I was forced to pick a favorite, it would be "Tomorrow Never Knows". Both the album and Anthology versions rock my world.

Revolver is my favorite album. To me, there are only gems from top to bottom.

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

Hm. For No One is one of my top three songs of theirs overall, but Tomorrow Never Knows is just one of those songs that really grabs me. Revolver is definitely one of my favorites, although Got To Get You Into My Life and I Want To Tell You blend together in my mind sometimes.

John Lennon liked it too. In the article Joe wrote about this song, John is quoted as saying it is one of his favorite McCartney compositions.

14 – Yellow Submarine – it just does not fit with the rest, annoying halfway, and is too simplistic (for this album); if it were replaced by Rain or Paperback Writer, Revolver would be a just about perfect album with not one glaring error like this

13 – Doctor Robert – not bad, just a lazy throwaway for this album

12 – Love You To – great and very soothing Indian rhythms, but it feels slightly out of place compared with the others

11 – For No One – unquestionably melodically/lyrically involving and moving, but ultimately I could take it or leave it

10 – She Said, She Said – for an acid song, it is wonderful, but after a few listens it loses its novelty, because it drones a little much

9 – Got To Get You Into My Life – the last of these I can nitpick a bit--the horns are a bit overwhelming points, but still a fine song

8 – Good Day Sunshine – cheerful and in good spirits…nothing much more

7 – I Want To Tell You – much like #8 in tone, except the lyrics are slightly more thoughtful, because it's Harrison

6 – Tomorrow Never Knows – this can only go at the end; in its experimentation it is a triumph, and surprisingly modern-sounding, but as a pure song it has to pull itself together. I know this was not the intention, but still…

5 – And Your Bird Can Sing – what a great rocker, and with such clever metaphors in the lyrics; awesome guitar riffs and collaborative vocals near the end

4 – Taxman – just great in the same way as #4, except McCartney's grinding bass surf puts it over the edge

3 – Eleanor Rigby – as a beautiful romantic COMPOSITION (not just a song), it definitely stands out. Lyrics are spellbinding and the violins evoke a clear mood.

2 – I'm Only Sleeping – flawlessly strung together, and again puts us in a direct state of mind, conveys it properly with its composition. I also appreciate the anticlimactic angle it approaches.

1 – Here, There and Everywhere -McCartney's glorious and faint singing and the finessed strings make it a masterpiece
