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.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

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.

I have a funny story about this song. (Well, not really. But it is related to the song.)

Me: You know what would be cool?

Polythene Dan: Donuts.

Me: Yeah. But other than that.

Polythene Dan: What?

Me: You know how some roller coasters (like Space Mountain) have music in them?

Polythene Dan: Yeaaaaaaah?

Me: Imagine a coaster based on "Tomorrow Never Knows."

Polythene Dan: a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

A couple of weeks later, my dad got an iPad app where you design a roller coaster. (If you like that kind of thing, it's called "AirCoaster.")

You know that mythical Sibling Communication Look? Well, we did it. :D

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

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Stereo.

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.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

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.
