The one that grabbed me today (from memory...I wasn't listening to it at the moment) was when John sings at the end "Help me! Help me!"

I started thinking about John asking someone to help him learn how to help himself.

Simon and Garfunkel would answer him. ("We'd like to help you learn to help yourself.") ahdn_george_07

The Let It Be guitar solo. The one on the album, though, not the single version. Absolutely adore it.

I could actually list these for a while. Let's see...

And I could go on for a while.

@ScrambledEggs    Funny, I feel the opposite. Of course the 2 "Let It Be" solos were supposed to both appear at the same time. Must be a Phil Spector-ism that one appeared on the single and the other on the album. The single version solo really has direction, rising and then coming back down and ending just in the nick of time before the lyrics resume. The album solo IMO meanders around, just the way you might expect a 'background' solo to do.

I'd use the exact same words to describe the Let it Be single solo! Every time I hear it I get a feeling that the melody just wanders aimlessly. I suppose it's the lower tones that give me that vibe. It would do great as a background solo, though,  I think. :)

But now you have given me a different perspective.  I had no idea that the two solos were meant to go together.  Thanks for that piece of information!

Wow, I actually just learned that about the two Let It Be solos, and I was going to post. Beat me to it.

That chord in "...that when I tell you that I love you..oh.." from I should have known better.

Here's a search tip that might help you @LikeASir, and all others who want to give it a try. My Google search here is

 

"should have known better" site:beatlesbible.com/forum/the-songs/song-fragments-that-really-grab-you

 

At first the Google results page only showed 1 result. Then I clicked on the link to show omitted results. It can be a little bit confusing, but I quickly located your post and ISWD's original post. A couple of other people mentioned that song too. Once a page loads, use ctrl+f and search for a keyword on the page.

You don't always have to get that specific. Your search could be just your keywords followed by  site:beatlesbible.com/forum or if you want to search Joe's information pages too, leave off forum at the end of the search string.

 

 

Sometimes this method works well. Sometimes not. Sometimes it is better to use the search function within the forum. The match phrase option is very nice. Searching just topic titles can be eye opening.

 

Play around with the various search methods if you like. I'm hoping many people will and teach me things I haven't discovered yet. Don't forget the * and %

Hope this helps.

 

Hum, now for a song fragment that grabs me. I've already put at least 2 posts in this thread. I will pick a different fragment. "Well, well, well. You're feeling fine."

@IrateMarauder 

The light bells at the beginning of "Starting Over" contrasting with those funeral bells at the beginning of "Mother" were (sadly) supposed to signal a more hopeful mood on Lennon's part (according to Lennon in one of his interviews).

The intro to Taxman, and in A Day In The Life when John says ' I sawr a film today o boy' and then the piano does a little thing and it goes into the next part and I love it.

@imtheTaxman I love those parts too! Especially the beginning of Taxman, great way to start an album. I see you're pretty new here and haven't introduced yourself yet! So please, if you wish to do so, click here and tell us about about yourself, how you got into the Beatles, etc.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

In the Anthology 3 version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, when George sings "aleeerted".

Also, I love the middle eight of What You're Doing.

Pretty much all songs catch me whenever they're in major key and there's some minor key in there, like in And Your Bird Can Sing and the chorus of Getting Better.
