I dislike Revolution 9 and Mr. Moonlight the most. Revolution 9 to me is not so much a song as more a lot of noise. Insane unhelpful noise that is. And Mr. Moonlight because the harmonies on that do not sound good at all. It makes me cringe a lot.

 

And I'm just wondering, why does it seem a lot of people do not like Good Night? I've always found it a very relaxing song, and I love the orchestra behind it. It actually reminds me of pieces we would play in orchestra.

Ohh, I love Good night... Reminds me of some old musicals. Ringo does a spectacular job in it.  I actually like 9. revolution tooa-hard-days-night-paul-4. It's so weird, scary and unpredictable.

I thinmk because it doesn't use conventional sounds, and is quite Cheesy.

My theory is that most people associate "Good Night" with "Revolution 9," and, much like Pavlov's dogs salivating at the sound of a bell, they begin to feel dislike when they hear "Good Night." 

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

What On Earth is that? Google isn't helping.

Wait. You didn't think my "Dr.-Jeckyll-Mr.-Hyde" joke was funny because "everyone knows it," but you don't know about Pavlov's dogs?
OK. Pavlov (I can't remember his first name right now) was a behaviorist. He conditioned dogs by ringing a bell before he fed the dogs. When the dogs heard the sound of the bell, they started salivating because they had learned to expect food. This is called classical conditioning.

I only knew that because they mentioned it on Bugs Bunny, and who doesn't watch Bugs Bunny?

The Walrus brings up a good point, I think musically Michelle might be just about perfect in terms of sound, but the lyrics are rather forgettable as are some of the others named. I feel like you grow into lyrics, or grow with lyrics, more than you do music, like I used to not think Across The Universe was all that spectacular but after X amount of listens it finally hit me.  

I wonder what the Beatles peak was in terms of great music that you dig right away PLUS lyrics that are good the first time but keep getting better the more you listen to them...hmmm.....Strawberry Fields? Anyone have any guesses?


Definitely Strawberry Fields for me. Things like the key change are hard to get, and obviously the lyrics, but the more you listen to them, the better they are.

Having said that, I didn't really dig it at first. Maybe Tomorrow Never Knows, then? Even though the lyrics are essentially garbage, albeit incredibly beautiful and "deep" garbage.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

They aren't meant to be viewed literally, but as if you are in a "altered state".

(OMG, I can't believe I just defended Tomorrow Never Knows. Maybe A change of Heart? Who knows?)

Don't own the book, so I can't say.

Not in order, but still

"Revolution 9" scares the living hell out of me.I have the record, and I'm too scared to leave it playing while I'm going to sleep in dear that it will keep me up, and I'll be too lazy to turn it off. Especially since I'm nearly legally blind.

"A Taste Of Honey" Four words: A-doo-un-doo

"Yellow Submarine" I seem to repeat myself with this song. It's good at first...and then...

"When I Get Home" "WOAAH I!!!!!" and "till the cows come home" are turn offs.

"Yesterday" Please don't kill me. It's just the fact that...well, I don't know. It's a pretty song, but it's waaaay too overrated.

"Why Don't We Do It In The Road?" Too...I don't know. I like it sometimes, sometimes I don't.

More...but I sort of like them more, and can listen to them with enough tolerance.

okay this is hard for me, because the ones that I dislike most, I've listened to least. therefore I can't compare them to each other because I don't want to listen to them in order to distinguish the one that grinds my gears the most. so I'm just going to take a shot in the dark and say Revolution 9. yes, typical.

Paul, don't kill me. This may be the reason why you ditched me three times.

But I just...I don't know. I remember reading somewhere where John says "The song's a beautiful song, I just wish I hadn't written it." Or something.

But it's pretty...just...You know? A little overrated. Paul was embarrassed of it at first, and people make it into more than it is. Now he thinks that it's gold.

And I hate it when people say that they love all of the songs that their favorite band recorded. I mean, they wrote some real stinkers.

I know! It bothers me. I mean, I do have the ability to tell what I like and what I don't. Just because I don't love every Beatles song ever written doesn't mean I don't love the Beatles.

Dig It - I really don't think this needs an explanation

Honey Pie - (see above)

One After 909 - I like the Anthology version, but I don't really like the Let It Be version

Words Of Love - I'm just not all big on it

Goodnight - I think it would've been better if John sang it(sorry Ringo)

Matchbox - (see Dig It)

Really? I don't like "Wild Honey Pie". I don't get why, like, half of the album is a part of the album half of the time.
