Being a fan of repetitive music, I quite enjoy the song. It's maybe not my absolute favorite on AR, but it's in the top 3. I don't think any song showcases the talent that they were as musicians better than this song, Ringo is just incredible, Paul's incredible, the guitars are fantastic, the synthesizer and abrupt ending are just great. The solo is definitely my favorite from the Beatles catalogue, I'm not sure who plays it though, but I do agree that it sounds like it should be in a Bond movie. John's YEEEAAAHHHHH is just awesome. Maybe it is my favorite now that I'm thinking about it.


John plays the guitar solo in this song.

It's actually John and George

Well it's definitely not both playing the solo, and legend says John but it seems to be above and beyond everything else he ever did, it seems a little too perfect. But I'll buy it because I'm a Lennon homer. a-hard-days-night-john-1

It's definitely not my favorite song on Abbey Road, but when I listen to the entire album, I don't skip it. I like predicting the ending. :D

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

Incidentally, Eddie Hazel (GnikNus surely knows who he is) did a great version of "IWY(SSH)" on his '77 solo album.

The first time I listened to it, I felt really disturbed.. I was so confused about when it started and when it ended and what happened in between.. so i decided to forget about it completely..

When I finally got the complete Abbey Road album (a-hard-days-night-john-6) I decided to play it from beginning to end and not skip any songs.. I was surprised at how much i LOVED this song and another one that i have never heard before (Oh Darling)..

 

Bottom line, I recently became obsessed with it, playing it again and again. Love the last parts with the static noise and the abrupt ending and all.. and the way they say "She's So Heavyyyyy.. Heavyyyyy"

But one thing still bothers me .. A LOT! what does "She's so heavy" mean – that is, if it means anything!! a-hard-days-night-george-1a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-ringo-4a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Do I have to keep on talking till I can't go on!

In late '60s-speak, "heavy" = profound, mindblowing, important, powerful etc.  In other words, she all that!

Now that song makes me feel like smoking. I don't do it, but still makes me do it. a-hard-days-night-george-4

May I ask Why?



I dunno. I feel like I'm in one of those 60s cafes where people used to sit on the floor and listen to music and just move at the rhythm of the music. I think I watch too many 60s movies.

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?

a-hard-days-night-george-10

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


They could at least have left a pause between the two songs when they remastered Abbey Road. Heck, even if it just happened to fade, that would be better than a pathetic single guitar quietly playing suddenly after all that noise.

Why do you say "heavy" all the time? Is there a problem with the earth's gravity in the future?

Just remember, g is a constant: 9.8 m/s²(as long as you're on earth). The gravitational attraction between two bodies can be figured like this:
g=G (m1m2/r²) where G is the universal gravitational constant (6.67*10-¹¹ N*m²*kg²), m1 and m2 are the masses, and r is the distance between the two masses. So unless the mass of the earth changes, g will always be the same.
