Yay or nay? As I mentioned in a different thread, I put it on repeat accidentally while reading some Paul biography and never really noticed, and before I knew it, I loved the song. Great to just zone out to, and relax. The subtle guitar parts I find really enjoyable.

Though I hear people say that they really don't like it.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Thoughts? a-hard-days-night-paul-10

A very enjoyable tune, I think Flying is the only way to describe it, you can sort of drift with it. It's the Beatles tune that is most similar to what I listen to these days, so who knows, maybe Flying really inspired me?

Yeah that's a good way to put it. And with all the trilling and strange noise at the end, I can fall asleep to it very easily. It just floats. What sort of music are you listening to these days then?

No. While it was just a soundtrack piece, it just bores me silly. So I say no. I'd rather listen to Mister Moonlight than this.

Mostly instrumental funk stuff, so the lack of lyrics is what makes it most similar.

I like it. But if I've been listening to rocking music (She Said She Said, etc.) before and I want to sing along, I'll skip it. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I like it. Sometimes instrumentals (with a couples oohhs) are just needed. And it does give that aerial feeling. The song lives up to its name.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

HAHA! OMG, I don't really like "Mister Moonlight" at times because John's vocals aren't so hot.

I like the song, though. Very calming, almost impromptu, like a jam session.

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

'Flying' was a filler for the 'Magical Mystery Tour' EP. 

What I find interesting is they gave credit to all four Beatles for the first time.

Yeah I wonder what the writing process for it was. I'm curious.

It's not one of those tracks that I go out of my way to find, but when it comes up I really do enjoy it. I like the fact that all four voices are on this one.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Flying doesn't really fly with me, it's too boring for me probably although probably not because I listen to some songs that are boringer only also I believe it's the lack of words, but I can listen to songs without words or not much and I always feel like their gonna start singing before they do!

Have you heard the nine-minute version of Flying? More time to zone out and relax.

Hello, I'm back. I don't really like the theme/song.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon
