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.

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.

(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.)
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*
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.

Maxwell's Hammer I actually love this song now; I find the lyrics deliciously macabre (and funny), and the music - while sounding deceptively nursery-rhyme-ish ("granny music"?) - is, I think, actually very complex. It has the light touch and dark, brooding heart of the Grimms' fairy tales, in my opinion.

At one point I couldn't stand I Saw Her Standing There but it's grown on me.
