Small smileys, brain on Paul, and a hockey game starting in minutes. Error fixed.

I love how isolated tracks have appeared all over the place as you get to hear parts of the songs that otherwise you never would and they help you see whats going on. Two of the highlights are Here Comes The Sun (moog syth and orchestra) and Something (Hammond Organ and orchestra). Both are gorgeous pieces of music.

The bassline to the bridge section of "Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da" is absolutely stunning. Paul is also in killer form on just about every tune thrown onto Hey Jude, particularly "Rain" and "Old Brown Shoe." His bass is understated but mind-boggling on the latter part of "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" and I also adore "Helter Skelter." It's worth checking out that one of his huge influences, the Motown legend James Jamerson, plays unbelievable bass on the tune "Standing In The Shadows Of Love," and I think you can find the bassline on YouTube. Happy listening! apple01

Rain, Come Together, Rain, With A Little Help
But every time I listen to a Beatles song carefully I realise how awsome are Paul's basslines.

Basically all of Abbey Road. Paul's bass is a part of what makes that album so utterly incredible!

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

Also the album with the greatest basslines should be Sgt Peppers…..
