I always love the "mashed together" songs. I think it was also a pretty significant song. For me, they just constantly surprise. Aside from Revolution 9 this being one of their longest songs with minimal lyrics, it gives them room to experiment, which they always do best. Using the Moog Synthesizer and having such a dramatic end with the immediate silence for the last track of side one, leaves the listener (or maybe just me) in a pleasantly disappointed state (wanting more). That's just my opinion though. Welcome to the group! I'm new too, you should check out the introduction thread: http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo.....d/page-30/

Theme song to the end of the world.  I love it.  And the fact that it is follwed by Here Comes The Sun, the change from the heavy ending to the light guitar picking is awesome.

Sometimes I wish it was a tad shorter, but that's only because I want Here Comes The Sun to get here faster. Great guitars.

I enjoy the song, the ending is something you wouldn't really hear in any other song. The 3rd verse/guitar solo for some reason sounds like it belongs in a 007 movie.

Something I noticed about it recently while listening to the rock band tracks and seperated 5.1 channels from the love version, I heard at least 3 possible solos that were recorded but never used. In the love version, there is a distorted guitar and hammond organ solo that i've never heard before, and if you listen closely to the rock band drum track there is a jazzier guitar solo underneith that. Makes me wonder how many different attempts at the ending they tried.a-hard-days-night-john-7

Does Joe or anyone know anything about these?

To the people who wish it would fade smoothly into "Here Comes The Sun:" 

You do realize that "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" is the end of Side One, right?

The only thing I really like about this song is the guitar "solo." Not the end, but during the verse.  

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

Where is the Solo? I haven't listened in a while and the only Solo-esque thing I can think of is the mass finale
