Joe Johnson (Beatle Brunch, 06.10.2012) mentioned that the single "Magical Mystery Tour" reached the US Billboard Charts, somewhere in the 100's. I have never heard of "MMT" being a single except for a Capitol/Cema Juke-box 45rpm in yellow vinyl, released in 1987. What gives? No one lists "MMT" as ever being a 45, on Capitol, in the 60's.'

What do you overall think of Magical Mystery Tour. Do you like it or do you dislike it?

The album is nice except for All You Need Is Love


The movie is cool though I think there was wasted potential


The song is nice I like it. It is how my dad would say an Up song

Never say never, cause it's never 'never'

Presumably you mean just the song considering this is in the song sub-forum. 

Never been a huge fan of it, does a job and thats about it - the "mystery trip" middle bit and the end closer with the piano or keyboards tinkling away is nice tho. I do also like the film version with John's "when a man buys a ticket. . ." spoken part, i kind of wish that was on the album. The trumpets are the most annoying for me, too sharp (for lack of a correct word).

Not a bad song, not a great song either. Gets a bit annoying if you hear it too much. Like the middle bit and the ending though, like mmm said.

As for the album, it's great, one of my favourites actually.

My favourite thing about the song is Ringo's backbeats and Paul's driving bassline during the verses. And the way it goes all dreamy during the bridge, and the outro. Not a great song, perhaps, but it sure sounds nice. Or at least is full of nice sounds.

Indian music can't be listened to the same way you hear rock and roll. You cannot do 'Yea Yea' and 'Go Man Go' - Ravi Shankar
