It's weird that this is my favorite song. I love Helter Skelter, I'm Down, Back In The USSR, and Revolution because they've got such a "rock image". And yet, I sometimes skip songs like Julia, I Will, When I'm 64, and Yesterday because they just presented a "calming aura" that I had to be in the mood for. Usually my friends thought this one be #1 on my hate list for being so long and "orchestral" and "slow". I have no idea why this is my favorite song. I don't know, it just seems very "festive". Is this anyone else favorite song as well?a-hard-days-night-george-8

Yes, count me "out ... in" on this one.  It took years for this song to grow on me, but when I listen to Pepper today, all the songs that lead up to this one seem like appetizers (really, really, really good appetizers, I hasten to add, hastily).  I think the melody is just absolutely gorgeous (I get that familiar, "Beatle-tingle" in my skin when George goes up for the repeated, swooping high note, "if they only kneewww-eewww-eewwww"), and as I've gotten older and more "introspective" about life, the lyrics have really come to mean quite a bit to me as well.  I've never found a song quite like it.

Thanks for bringing it up - I think I'll go have a listen to it now.

Not a bit like Cagney.

This is a song I have to listen to with my eyes closed- it has an entirely different effect on you.
And how beautiful are the Indian and string swoops in the song? Gorgeous!

"Life flows on within you and without you" was always a tattoo contender for me.

Actually this is one of my favorite from Sgt. Pepper. The lyrics are quite profound. Is it a Beatle song? Absolutely. Many people don't like the Indian style.. but the lyrics are so spiritual that's impossible to think in rock style for this. Besides, it's perfect for its time. a-hard-days-night-george-5

This is definitley one of my favorites on the album. I especially enjoy the Anthology instrumental version because I can be the lead singer! a-hard-days-night-george-5

Yeah, it was one of the highlights of the album for me too, for many years. It's slipped a couple of places but I still enjoy it a lot. George always said that he didn't consider it part of the Sgt. Pepper "concept"; and it does feel like an intermission from the main event - but it's that very apartness that ironically emphasizes its place within the whole, as an added attraction, maybe; and the laughter at the end reinforces that and mocks it

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

No... it's definetly children laughing. Here's from our favorite website.

 

http://www.beatlesbible.com/so.....thout-you/

 

The laughter at the end of the track was Harrison's idea. While some

listeners initially thought it was the sound of the other Beatles

mocking his songwriting effort, it was in fact meant to lighten the mood

after five minutes of sad, almost mournful, music.

You wouldn't happen to mildly dislike this song, would you? 

I LOVE THIS SONG! (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

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

Brilliant song by Harrison, brilliant arrangement from Martin. Over time it's become more important than most of the other songs, which is an interesting result.

Reading over these posts, I think we can all agree that this is a song that grows on you. 'Let me know you, let me show you, let me grow upon you...a-hard-days-night-george-2 

I was always pretty neutral about this one, though I liked the lyrics, particularly 'Try to realise it's all within yourself, no one else can make you change', until rather recently, when I started to appreciate it more.

I must confess, though, I delight in singing it in a highly exaggerated 'Mystic-George' voice. ahdn_george_08 

It really doesn't matter if I'm wrong I'm right where I belong I'm right where I belong

It's a beautiful track...I love the 'anthology' version because it highlights how awesome the arrangement was. Possibly george martins finest string arrangement for the band.

Listen out for when those plucked violins come in...
