Gotta go with Joe. a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 If you're talking about the original version, or the softer version, it's gotta be that newly discovered 11 min. mix for sure. But, being a heavy metal kid from way back, it was actually songs like "Revolution", "I Want You" (She's So Heavy), "Helter Skelter", "Yer Blues" and "Tax Man" that got me into the heavier sounds that the music world has to offer. So, I gotta go with the rocker version!

Oh that magic feeling…nowhere to go!

Both versions are excellent, but the single version played from vinyl is AWE-SOME.


 

I agree good sir. It sounds like the guitar is going to tear the speakers right in half.

Having said that, I think they both have great qualities, although I'm sure that John found the single version more appropriate.a-hard-days-night-john-1


 

Actually, I thought John wrote "Revolution 1" first. He wanted to put it out as a single, but Paul (and the others, but mostly Paul, I think) thought it was too slow. So, John kept the lyrics and melody, but turned it into (one of the) most raucous single(s) the Beatles released. (The parentheses are for adjusting what I say to match your point of view.)

But I like "Revolution 1" better. My brother Polythene Dan(not his real name) says that the single version is more upbeat, but I think "Revolution 1" sounds happier. I also like the harmonies(as an alto who rarely gets the melody in choir), which, for me, are a main attraction of the Beatles.

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

Well, I'll just revive this here thread. I prefer Revolution 2. The single was the superior version. Paul made the right decision by vetoing Revolution 1 as single.
