Interesting thought about the drums in Blue Jay Way. I will give it another spin. I've really being enjoying keying on on Ringo lately ever since I finished Tune In. That book really brought out how important Ringo was to their sound.

I used to not get Come Together (at all). Now, I wouldn't say I love it, but it's the effing Beatles and Abbey Road (which is brilliant) couldn't begin any other way.

It's almost too long ago to remember such details, but I do remember not being too fussed about a number of early to mid-period George songs, from Don't Bother Me, I'm Happy Just To Dance With You to You Like Me Too Much all the way to Love You To and I Want To Tell You. I have a better appreciation of the ideas in those songs now, they're not always the greatest songs structurally, but I've grown to really like his harmonic ideas, particularly his love of semi-tone progressions. His songwriting grew up in public.

I used to not be so keen on Think For Yourself, but now I have it on Rubber Soul (rather than that bloody awful Yellow Submarine Songtrack) and I like it quite a lot. 

(About the above comment: The songs on YSS are good; it's the fact that they've been torn off their proper albums and shoved together in no particular order that I hate.) 

stay-on-topic

Believe it or not, when I first heard Here, There And Everywhere, it was a Paul live version, and I wasn't that impressed... until I heard the proper album version. *MIND BLOWN* beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Now, of course, I think it's world peace, bliss, love, and generally positive vibes all wrapped up into a tidy package of two minutes and twenty seconds. a-hard-days-night-john-6

There was a period where I hated the second part of Pepper which goes When I'm 64 - Lovely Rita - Good Morning Good Morning. Now I absolutely love them, especially GMGM (64 a bit less but I still like it very much)

I used to hate Happiness Is A Warm Gun. I've re-added it to my playlist recently, and now I love it.

Paperback Writer did nothing for me at first since I consider its' B-Side to be far superior as a show-stopping single (besides the whole storyline sounds drab).

I've now warmed up to it over the past few days.

Long, Long, Long. It took a long long long some time to grow on me. I think it had something to do with George's vocal being so soft that sometimes I couldn't even hear him, now I always turn up the volume whenever it comes (loud and with good headphones the song is thrilling).

Also Within You Without You and Love You To, I don't love them, but I like them more than some months ago.

Honey Pie and Wild Honey Pie have grown on me lately. Revolution 1 used to creep me out and I always preferred Revolution instead. Now I think it is almost as great as Hey Jude and I understand why John wanted it to be their A side. The guitar work on the song is probably my favorite of any Beatles record. I'm not quite sure why I disliked it now. Yer Blues, And Your Bird Can Sing, Don't Let Me Down, and I Want To Tell You also have evolved into favorites.

Everybody's Got Something to Hide except For me and My Monkey………After 40+ years…it finally rings my bell …..and the guitars rampage across my aural spectrum ……As our good old wordsmith Pineapple might articulate it.

Nice to see someone else highlighting 'I Want To Tell You', my favourite George song on 'Revolver'. The lyrics are fantastic as is that jangly intro.

I look forward to the day, many years from now, when I too will finally appreciate Long, Long, Long.  I absolutely love much of George's stuff, but I put this one in the same category as Blue Jay Way: struggling to reach meh status.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'. Kurt Vonnegut, Timequake, 1997

Yes, I agree it took me a long time to start liking a-hard-days-night-george-10's stuff too, but I guess I am a born again ChrisGeorgestian.  Actually I've always enjoyed those 2 songs somewhat from the beginning, it was his more Enlightening (indian) stuff that took me a long time.

Martha My Dear, I Will and Mother Nature's Son never really stood out for me on the White Album (a little dull) with my first couple of listens but now just listening to them individually without the 27 other songs of the album i really appreciate them and are actually some of my favourites from the White Album.

When I was a kid, I did not care for Tell Me What You See.  It seemed boring to me.  But now I appreciate it for its strong melody and vocals.

And I am ashamed to admit I was not into In My Life.  I guess I preferred the faster songs on Rubber Soul and was too young to appreciated its beauty and sentiment.  It's certainly one of my favorites today.

You are all my friends.

None, really (today at least). Most of my feelings towards particular songs are pretty much the same now as they were when I first heard them in the 1960s.

I have come to appreciate the 'White Album" a bit more over the years though.
