Revolver is such a wonderful album!!!

My favourite songs on this particular album would have to be Here, There and Everywhere and Got To Get You Into My Life. For No One is incredible as well. 

Doctor Robert gets stuck in my head really easily, and I quite like it.

Currently it is 'For No One' – but subject to change.  I had almost forgotten this song then heard it quite a bit in recent weeks and recalled how much I actually like it.

I note that Rolling Stone has it at #40, so I guess I'm not the only one who things it's not too bad.

Taxman, followed by I Want To Tell You and I'm Only Sleeping.

'For No One' is a beautiful song, and very under-appreciated. I've always thought it to be one of the strongest tracks on Revolver.

I agree – I think it is one of their all time best songs.

I'm going back again and again to She Said She Said and really appreciating what a strong track that is.

My husband who got me to go with him to the "Out There" concert back in May has never really listened to the Beatles albums sequentially or thoroughly. Really, he mainly knew the songs on the "1" album. So, I stuck the Revolver cd into his hand this morning and told him to listen to it on the drive to and from work. He got out of the car this afternoon singing "Got To Get You Into My Life" and declared it the best song on the album. He introduced me to the Beatles, and now I am getting him to go deeper into their music. Quite a beautiful thing.

This one's in the "too hard" basket.  It depends what mood I'm in and what I've just been listening to.  I'm Only Sleeping, And Your Bird Can Sing are great Lennon contributions and Got To Get You Into My Life is brilliant from Macca.  But Eleanor Rigby, Taxman, Here There And Everywhere, For No One, Doctor Robert and She Said She Said are all great too.  I agree with the majority about Yellow Submarine though!

When I think of "Revolver", a very specific sound comes to mind. I think of the heavy, acidic guitars, the heavy bass, the thundering drums, and the harmonized vocals. And with that sound, "And Your Bird Can Sing" and "She Said She Said" come to mind. I can't pick between those two as to which is my favorite, but to me, those two songs seem to represent the overall sound of the album the best.

Don't know if I have posted this before and too lazy to skim the last 4 pages of this thread to see if I did.

'Tomorrow Never Knows'

Reasons:

  • Ringo's drumming
  • John's Leslied 'Dalai Lama' voice 
  • Ringo's drumming
  • Backwards guitar solo (if I'm not mistaken, Paul's guitar)
  • Ringo's drumming

I do go back and forth between which version I like best; Revolver or Anthology. Either track gets cranked up to the fullest when played.

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

Can buy Joe love! If you're going to buy that song, album, or T-shirt anyway; please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes

For me it's a three way tie between Tomorrow Never Knows, I'm Only Sleeping and For No One. Although it is  an impossible choice as each track is golden (even Yellow Submarine)

I love Taxman, I'm Only Sleeping, Got To Get You Into My Life, And Your Bird Can Sing, She Said She Said, and Doctor Robert

Damn I don't think I could ever pick one of these tracks to really stand out, ugh indecisiveness. Tomorrow Never Knows does though. Way ahead of its time! 

 

Honorable mention (because its one of my favorites) :  Rain  !

For all Ringo would be slagged over the years, just how influential would his '66 drumming be on everything that followed. Here are some Chemical Brothers examples, based on TKN.

Here, there and everywhere. I think..

This is such a special album, I think it's the only Beatles album on which I really like all songs a lot.

"And Your Bird Can Sing" Why? I'm not sure why. It's a bit like trying to explain why I've loved the Beatles since I was a kid.

 

The thing is, for me, it will change after a while, then I'll "re-focus" on another Beatle album/song and go along with that. I would like to say that I agree with a music critic I read recently who wrote that "Rubber Soul" and "Revolver" should have been released as a double album because they were so thematically similar.

 

They are.

Watch out now, take care, beware of thoughts that linger, winding up inside your head, the hopelessness around you, in the dead of night, beware of sadness, it can hit you, it can hurt you, make you sore, and what is more, that is not what you are here for.
