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'

If you can't log in and can't use the forum go here and someone will help you out.

It's Sgt. Pepper without the driving beat and cool vibe.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'. Kurt Vonnegut, Timequake, 1997

I think i prefer the film mix with John's calls instead of Pauls - especially during the solo. Its still not a great song, catchy but slight. In fact you could say that about all of Paul's latter '67 material aside from '
The Fool On The Hill' - not there is much thinking about it.

I never noticed it's John on the Film.  Must check it out.

mmm, Are you saying you don't care for Paul's material after 1967?

Here's the film version with John instead of Paul 

Only the post-Pepper thru to end of 1967 (excluding 'The Fool On The Hill') and its not that i dont like it (tho i can happily go years without having to hear 'Your Mother Should Know') there is just nothing to it. Ringo and the backing vocals save 'Hello, Goodbye' from complete boredom, the already mentioned 'Your Mother Should Know' somehow achieves the distinction of being a short song (not even 2 1/2 minutes long) yet overstays its welcome by at least 60 seconds, 'MMT' is catchy yet dull and 'All Together Now' is a fun kids song but spend 30 seconds looking into it and you've wasted 25.

I can't think of any others of Paul's from that period. I'd argue (and have stated before) that i dont think his 'Pepper' stuff is that great when you take them away from the album context - George and John's offerings are far superior.

'Lady Madonna' shows that he got some oomph back.

Ok, I see, your just referring to 1967, but you like him again 1968 and on, correct?

Yip tho i dont dislike him in 1967, just think the material he submitted for recording is a-hard-days-night-paul-7.

Funny, I absolutely love his '67 stuff like Hello Goodbye, Penny Lane and some of his work on Pepper, (which I agree is a bit overrated).  

 But I think '67 is John Lennon's most prolific year with great songs like Strawberry Fields Forever, Baby You're A Rich Man, I Am The Walrus, A Day In The Life, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, Good Morning Good Morning, Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite!, etc......

Overall, I find 1967 their best year, followed by the White Album in '68 a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 apple01

Never got the adoration lavished upon 'Penny Lane'. Its like after hanging out with the cool kid for an age people start thinking the average kid is cool too.
