I really can't explain why, but this is my favorite song (don't throw tomatoes at me!) of my less favorite Beatle (no insults, you Georgie fansa-hard-days-night-george-4).

But I love Blue Jay Way, and every time I hear it, I can´t help but to start "Bollywood-dancing"...

 

I found this awesome video of Blue Jay Way, hope you like it!

 

BTW, I don´t know if it's allowed by the forum rules to insert videos... more often than once in a while..., so I just put the link.

 

Have a beautiful daY!

Definitely one of my favorites, it really grows on you after a while, sort of like I Am The Walrus. 'There's a fog upon L A-aaaa, and my friends have lost their waa-aaay, we'll be over soon they saa-aaaid, now they've lost themselves instee-eead.' Such an awesome opening verse.

I quite like "Blue Jay Way" a lot myself, too, even though the coda goes on a bit long. Somebody somewhere mentioned how the cellos and the phasing really help to evoke that fog upon L.A., and they're OTM. George was really into those droning organ songs in '67-68, wasn't he?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

Blue Jay Way is definately one of my favourites, partly because it's so weird, also he has enough parts to keep you interested a hundred years later.a-hard-days-night-john-2 The organ mixed with the cello, plus the effects does give a very foggy atmosphere. Also I'd say this is one of Ringo's best performances. You can tell the beatles had a very large range of genres, I don't really know what this would fit into.

It is still there. Go to this site's
"Map" section. When the map opens, there is a Google site on the map itself. Type in Blue Jay Way and off you go...

I'm not sure how good the map search is You need to search for more than [Blue Jay Way] - [Blue Jay Way los angeles] will get you there. However, I've added the house that George stayed in to the song page (scroll down here).

Here's a very good site: http://www.electricearl.com/BlueJay.html – it doesn't mention the actual address, but I worked it out from the more recent photos.
