On I'll Be Back the first words "You know..." sounds like "I look..." from While My Guitar Weeps.

"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."

At 1:10 into "Long Long Long" I hear music from "Junk in the Yard". It may go on to have more similarities, but this is enough for now.

There's that piano bit in "Revolution #9" that sounds like it was borrowed from the "Guitar Gently Weeps" intro (flown-in from that session?)

The Lord Loves The One That Loves The Lord's opening guitar is incredibly similar to Old Brown Shoe's opening piano.

I was playing guitar last night and noticed the chord progression for Something's bridge is the roughly the same as the chords in the verse to "Help."

A C#m F#m (Something adds an E bass note to the chord, most likely from Macca's bass line) D G A

The fabs often borrowed from themselves, but this is neat because this is two separate composers.  

Anyway, I thought it was neat.

I find Nowhere Man and And Your Bird Can Sing to have a lot of structural similarities.

I opening chord from "All I've Got To Do" and "Oh! Darling" sound a bit similar to me.

Would a mod fix the title of this thread and then delete this post?

The "s" should be dropped from resembles.

I wake up at 2 a.m., check the forum, and this is what catches my eye. Go back to bed little Miss Grammar fiend.

Is this a regular occurrence? If so its some serious dedication/obsession.

hahaha lol No, not a regular habit of mine, mmm. I just woke up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed last night for some unknown reason. Glad I had 9 unread posts to entertain me. I finally fell back asleep for 3 more hours. I'm ready to take on the day. I'm training a new hire today. 

However, to be honest, I am obsessed with this site and with the joy you and all ofthe other forum members bring into my life.

Could have sworn I answered to a similar topic. Love Me Do and From Me To You resemble each other a bit.

Octopus's Garden's guitar lick reminds me of a song, but I can't remember which one. I'll get back to you.

EDIT: I listened to it again, and the underlying guitar during the verses really reminds me of Sun King

DOUBLE EDIT: As mentioned in the OP, I Want You (She's So Heavy) and Because's riffs sound very similar.

TRIPLE EDIT: I just read through the rest of this thread, and it's hilarious. Just wow. I mean, I've read the Day In The Life thread, but this is just comical. I love this forum so much. heartapple01heart

The Word and Taxman seem close,although could just be both having the staccato articulation of the notes.

And while a bit different I always get the same "vibe" from I'll Follow The Sun and I will.

You've got a lucky face.

That, and the fact that it's the same chord. Good call on that one!

Someone mentioned "Don't Let Me Down"/"Sun King" and there again, it's the same chord and even the same first few notes of the guitar lick. When I play either of those songs on my guitar, it starts in the exact same chord position.

Another musical mirroring is in "Rain"/"Paperback Writer." Paul's bass line is almost identical, note-for-note, in each song, albeit in a different tempo. Same key, though, with the same octave-jumps and inclusion of the 7th (which he also uses, in a different key, with "Taxman").

Not a bit like Cagney.
