The second installment is up, highlighting a few special spots on With the Beatles.

Tell me about your favorite "bits" on this album, won't you?


Of course!! Although I haven't heard enough With the Beatles (I might correct that by uploading onto my mp3 player) I must say I agree with you in all of the bits but these are other things I love.


It won't be longer : Those yeah-yeah.. man I love them. I can picture John and Paul looking at each other singing. I love Ringo's drums when they finish the chorus with "It won't be longer yeah till I belong to you" just when John enters with "Since.." he does something that he repeats a lot and maybe he does it a lot of songs, but I love it in this one.

All I've Got To Do : The "I" in "Whenever I .." and in "When I…" the way he drags the I .. I love it! and the last scream in the I when he sings I'll be there…. Man I feel cheating on George..

All My Loving : Ditto.

Don't bother me : I dunno but I feel George was smiling with some chorus in this song, after all it was his first song. Now was he double-tracking? Because if he did, in the first "I know I'll never be the same" when he sings "the" you can hear like an echo or something special that I can't figure out.

Little Child.- In the last "dance with me" before the fading you mention, they kind of scream that word don't they?

Till There Was You : Ditto.

Please Mr. Postman : Man, this song is hard to choose something I adore. I love it. John really makes me believe he's waiting for a love letter. And how John joins and leaves the chorus to sing his part. The part that makes me feel chills is when in the final part, in the first "You gotta wait a minute.." how the 3 join their voices, and later, when they stop playing and clap. It's one of my Beatles favorite since I'm a teen for very very personal reasons. It gives me goosebumps when I hear it.

Roll Over Beethoven : Ditto!! I love the analogy with an engine!! I also love the "Well you fell you like it" and the "ooohs" after "A rockin two by two"

Hold Me Tight : Ditto.

I Wanna Be Your Man : Ditto. The "eh" screams and all.. they're just having pure fun. It's one of my Ringo favorites.

Not A Second Time : I must start reading more info in The Beatle Bible instead of being here in the forums because I thought the final part was Paul and John!!

Money : Actually I always laugh at the lyrics "The best things in life are free, but you can keep those for the birds and bees" because.. well you know .. the bees LOL!!! And the nerve of John singing "Just give me money" to his girl.. that song makes me smile a lot, like saying "Look at this … man… asking me for money!!" But they're the Beatles and they can ask of me whatever they want :)


Wow I love this!!! And let me guess : Your favorite bit of  A Hard Day's Night is .. the chord?? I'm looking forward to the next episode of the series. a-hard-days-night-john-3

Here comes the sun….. Scoobie-doobie…… Something in the way she moves…..attracts me like a cauliflower… Bop. Bop, cat bop. Go, Johnny, Go. Beware of Darkness…  I believe in SH...
