Okay, I have to say, I used to hate this song. A LOT. But, I am now older, wiser and less idiotic (my words. No one ever used that phrase, although I wouldn't be surprised to hear they thought it), and this is the best on Revolver. That or Eleanor Rigby or For No One. But certainly top 3.

Anyone else love TNK?

The first time I heard Tomorrow Never Knows, my mind was utterly blown.

I agree with your assessment of Revolver as a whole, those three are the standout tracks from the album.

Love it? I wish the song was a man and I could have his babies. heart

 

Ok that was my stupid answer. Yeah I love it. It's the perfect bridge between Revolver and Strawberry Fields Forever. I think RS magazine said "The song is named Tomorrow Never Knows, but when we got next Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane, we knew the tomorrow was already here"

I too love it. I too love Revolver. Great drumming by Ringo. Perfect starting point for the psychedelic 60s. Amazing lyrics by an amazing songwriter. Amazing song.

Favorite song on Revolver though is I'm Only Sleeping. That backwards guitar just makes the song.

I like take one better than the final product, it makes me feel like I'm being warped into a different planet with the way it begins, or to a different wavelength or something.

I find Tomorrow Never Knows is really an outstanding song. Definitely in my top ten of all Beatles songs
The first time I heard it, was alone in my room, around 3 or 4 in the night, through headphones, with eyes closed. It totally blew me away.

To me, there is no other way to listen to this song.

I believe M3 gave me the idea in a separate thread months ago. It's fantastic.

Yeah, Zig, I did say that. 😀

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

Absoloutely fantastic song BUT I have a confession to make.....

 

- the first time I heard it properly was Phil Collins' cover version on the Face Value album....which is actually (sticks neck out) VERY GOOD ...as long as you exclude the annoying "when you wish.." coda. I think he did it as a tribute to John Lennon after his death.

I 'discovered' the original much later, and it goes without saying that it is superior, but here's an interesting poll...

You guys that listen in headphones...mono or stereo?? I included it in my John Lennon talk where there a big audio set up and it sounded just amaaaazing (stereo).a-hard-days-night-john-5

On one of my favorite iPod playlists, TNK rolls right into the Pepper album. It goes from the organized chaos of TNK to the quiet audience ambience of SPLHCB's opening to the rocking opening of the first track.

What a ride.

TNK in mono.....sucks. Badly. I feel the craziness is lost in Mono, and that stereo brings to the for hidden details and oddities that are en masse in TNK stereo.

I've been listening to a bootleg that separates the tracks on this album (not from moggs sadly), and the separation of track 3 is very enlightening. Aficionados (ie sad cases like me) are aware that the mono mix omits the high-pitched noise at the end of the guitar solo. Well, it turns out that was feedback at the original beginning of the guitar solo before it was reversed. What I didn't know was that it was a punch-in on track three and came in too early, accidentally erasing part of John's double-tracked vocals(!). Since that was only meant to track the first verses, they didn't worry about it. You can clearly hear the double-tracked vocal cut out in the right channel on the stereo mix and of course the feedback is there too.

For a non-chorded song TNK has a lot going on to make it more than interesting.

I particularly love the seagull effect descending over the opening bars. Its one of those songs where you hear something new on every listen.

As for Revolver - "And Your Bird Can Sing" is my favourite.

The Beatles are English - They have influences from all over - but they are English

Just listened to the Within You Without You - Tomorrow Never Knows mogg (furious that thats all we get of TNN) and was rather surprised that the drums were separable from the bass in the TNN parts.

They separated the instruments for Rock Band so the parts could be muted if a player dropped out. They did this even for the early two-track recordings, otherwise the game wouldn't work properly.

No I mean I'm surprised they were able to separate them at all!
