Oh yeah those drums in Blue Jay Way <3 And the organ too. I'm starting to really like that song, actually.

John's "ah!" at the end of the last verse of Ticket To Ride (at around 2:31), where his voice kind of breaks. He just sounds so frustrated and weary. Love that moment.

John's "Oh/Um" (or however one might spell it) just after the second bridge in "A Hard Day's Night."

John's vocal on Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds is breathtaking but the delivery on the opening lines "Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies" is gorgeous.

The backing vocals on Fixing A Hole, quite low but add a heck of a lot ("De-de-de-de-de...doooo")a-hard-days-night-john-6a-hard-days-night-george-9.

Lately for me it's been the instrumental coda/fade out on the unedited version of Sexy Sadie from the Peter Sellers Tape bootleg...almost a minute extra, and when they do the descending chord pattern and the turnaround back to the top of the coda, it sends chills down my spine. I wonder why on earth they edited that out for the White Album? It's lovely.

^^ I had to look that up on YouTube after reading your comment, Dr. Beatle. I love all the recommendations I read on this board.

Ah, sorry, I should've included a link: here it is

 

It also has more prominent organ, especially during the outro. But that coda is just brilliant!

"Wednesday Morning at 5 O'Clock as the Day Begins..."

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

The harmonies in "If I Needed someone" are just beautiful.

"she said she'd always been a dancer" in "She Came in Though the Bathroom Window" I love the sound of that part.

When the guitar kicks in at the end of "Carry That Weight"

Waaah! Never heard that before. It's great! I like it better than how the albumversion ends.

The Dmin chord in I Want To Hold Your Hand (the chord that begins the  "and when I touch you . . .") - in 1964 in the US - that chord set our world on fire.

Yes, thank you DrBeatle for turning me on to that outro! I'd never heard it either. That's one thing I love about being a Beatles freak - just when you think you've heard it all, you discover something else.

 

I'd like to add another song fragment: the repeat of the first verse, "Once there was a way..." and the beautiful string arrangement in that phrase. It's like a silk ribbon weaving around the vocal. Just beautiful. I'm assuming george-martin arranged it.

A Day In The Life - After Paul's verse and before John's second verse. I don't know, it just "grabs me".

I Want You - The last 3 minutes, building up to a climax before just completely pausing. (EDIT: I listened to the song on vinyl the first time I heard it, and when it stopped I said "Oh boy, I think the vinyl is scratched" thinking by record player skipped part of the song.)

Because, This Boy, Yes It Is - I love it when 3 Beatles harmonize.

Carry That Weight - the section where all 4 Beatles sing along. Ringo's voice sounds so distinctive.

The End - The whole song is pretty great, with solos by all the members.

I'm coming down fast from miles above you.

I love that too. The first time I listened to it I was like ''What? What just happened?'' Still love it now :D

Aaaah those Beatles harmonies. There's nothing better (except maybe The Beach Boys&#39a-hard-days-night-george-10. Those are the songs I tend to cry at when I hear them.

 

 EDIT: I have absolutely no idea why that George smiley keeps appearing there.

I was delivering leaflets or whatever they're called in English and I had my iPod on and the Love version of Within You Without You came on and I had never heard it before as I find most of the LOVE songs creepy and decided to just not listen to them all buuuuut

Within You Without You sounds so awesome with those drums of Tomorrow Never Knows! I love it!
