My favorite song on this album is Taxman. Not only does it show George blossoming as a songwriter, but maturing as a person. It's too bad he couldn't come up with a guitar solo, but 1966 was, in my opinion, the peak of Paul's songwriting.ahdn_george_01

I still don't believe that George could not come up with a solo for his own song. I don't care what Emerick said in his book. He never liked George anyway. I think he asked Paul to do the solo because he was not egotistical and wanted him to play the solo in his song. George has said that he asked Paul to play the solo and that he did an Indian bit for him which he thought was very nice.

I agree with that , I think he was more than capable – he just didn´t want to. I don´t believe it was like George to be flashy or anything similar (not that doing a solo is, but still).

This is kind of hard since Revolver might be my favourite album.

 

Hmm I guess my favourites are Here, There and Everywhere, Eleanor Rigby, And Your Bird Can Sing and Tomorrow Never Knows.

I really like She Said She Said and Got To Get You Into My Life too, but they can get a bit annoying at times.

 

For the rest I like them all pretty much equally. There's no song on this album I dislike.

She Said She Said has very interesting riff for that period, and of course the feeling of song is very psychedelic.

 

As for favorites, not sure if I answered on this topic but it has to be Tomorrow Never Knows. Then Eleanor Rigby/I'm Only Sleeping etc…

Grrr… I just wrote my whole list and then the internet crashed… So I'll just name my favorite song.

Here it is:

Drumroll please:

Taxman!

It's George's first really good song (not that his others weren't good), plus it's sort of funny yet it conveys a message.

An album where every track is a masterpiece (including Yellow Submarine which is getting much derided here). Tomorrow Never Knows has to be the one though. Experimentation and the use of the studio as just another instrument at its highest, and the first song they recorded for the album! They didn't build-up to it, but instead had to create an album that lived up to it.

Eleanor Rigby. It's made even more awesome in the Yellow Submarine movie. It's kind of weird, but it's cool.

Too many great ones on the entire album…For No One, She Said She Said, Taxman, I'm Only Sleeping. Tough choice but those are probably my favorites

My favourite song on the Revolver…I can't say either, it's one of the very best albums ever released. My two cents, Yellow Submarine is probably the weakest on the album. Revolver is in a different league than Rubber Soul in my opinion.

"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"

Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

I found it weird while making the list that almost half of the songs that I numbered are the actual numbers they were given on the track listing on the album :/

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

I usually can't pick a favourite song from an album, but this one is easy: Tomorrow Never Knows :D (followed closely by Eleanor Rigby. But I would put Love You To in my top 3 as well.)

This album is just too good and strong to pick one song. For No One holds a special place in my heart, not only because I could relate to it 10)% many years ago, but I wrote a musical and lyrical analysis of it as an essay when I was applying to music programs at my university (which I got into but decided not to pursue).

Origianlly Eleanor Rigby was my favourite becuase of the strings. Then I decided that For No One was my favourite because its beautifully bleak and Paul's vocals are really sad and because of the horn solo. However, I think now that I'm Only Sleeping is my favourite, becuase its exactly how you feel when you wake up in the morning, and I like the use of feedback and weird effects and the lazy way John sings. And Your Bird Can Sing is up there too- the last verse is just WOW
