I dont listen to side 2 a heck of a lot (YS is another album ive cut up in itunes) but there is The Pepperland Suite which is basically side 2 in 6 minutes 18 seconds which i do listen to a lot more. I do have a query tho. At 1:30 into the Suite it moves to March Of The Meanies which has additional drums that are not on the LP version (its better). Does anyone know where its from? Was it a very good fan/bootleg creation?  Is it in the film? Its certainly different.

Its not that the scores are bad, i also like the instrumental pieces on the US Hard Days Night and Help! soundtracks, just dont find myself hankering after them.

Out of topic, but interesting. To those talking about "
She's Leaving Home", hear this version. The Beatles, Motown version.

 

 

Is that Paul's vocals?.... Oh wait just realised that it was a remix. I hate remixes, some sound like they're autotuned. But it's safe to say this version is better than the SPLHCB (1978) movie.

 

 

 

Yeah, the guy that did it used Paul vocals with "What's Going On" by Marvin Gaye as the instrumentation. I thought it sounded really awesome.

I try to listen to an album in its entirety, so I don't often skip songs. But I'm not too fond of some tracks on side B of Help! (Tell Me What You See is the example).

The B-Side of "Yellow Submarine", they could have filled it up with a lot of songs the Beatles wrote but never recorded, and saved the orchestrated instrumentals just for the movie.

The following people thank TwoAfter908 for this post:

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

Side D of The White Album. Revolution 1 is the only thing I can tolerate on that side.

Though I own every Beatles album in both CD and vinyl format, I realized when looking over my iTunes that I never bothered to import "Act Naturally." So I guess I have to say it's that one (sorry, Ringo). a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Excluding rubbish such as Revolution #9, Wild Honie Pie, Maggie Mae and such....and also excluding covers that they did, most of which were all very good. (Should have left off Mr. Moonlight and included Leave My Kitten Alone.  As far as actual songs , songs I can't listen to are Every Little Thing, I'll Be Back, Within You Without You, Blue Jay Way, Your Mother Should Know, She's Leaving Home, Mr. Kite, I Dig A Pony, Long and Winding Road, I Want You, Long Long Long, Goodnight, Maxwell's Silver Hammer, It's All Too Much, It's Only A Northern Song, Love You Too, The Inner Light.

The B side of Yellow Submarine does not count...just filler

Though I love George and I absolutely love Blue Jay Way, I CAN'T listen to that one when it's dark and/or foggy, neither to Long long long (especially the ending) but I think I made that clear a couple of times already

I've never got people's fear of the ending of "Long Long Long" it's just cool for me nothing really frightening. It's only "Revolution 9" that scares the hell out of me. "Blue Jay Way" and "Only A Northern Song" I originally heard at 2am and I just thought they were savage George songs a-hard-days-night-george-10

Revolution 9 doesn't scare me when I'm listening to it, but certain parts of it will play repeatedly in my mind while I'm trying to fall asleep. That's when I find it creepy.

She Loves You

I never really liked the song from the time of its release.  I understand how lots of other people did, and how it contributed to Beatlemania yadda yadda yadda - it just never did anything for me (and I am a big fan of the early singles and albums).

Run For Your Life often gets the >> button.  Sticks out like a sore thumb at the end of Rubber Soul.  You Know My Name (Look Up the Number) gets the same treatment with Past Masters 2.

Certain tracks on the White Album get the skip treatment, depending on how I'm feeling at the time.  Offenders include both Honey Pies,  Bungalow Bill, Why Don't We Do It In The Road?, and Revolution 9, although I have been more tolerant of the latter as of late.

Don't you know? It's gonna be alright. (Shoo-bee-doo-wop)

As of late I'm prone to skipping all their normal stuff and listening just to the odd ones (Anthology series, Live At The BBC, that kind of thing) simply because I've listened to the same songs all over again I've become almost sick of hearing them.

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."
