We all know that the B-side of the album Yellow Submarine is filled with orchestral instrumentals composed by Martin, with no Beatle participation at all. So, guys, what do you think of it?

What do you think about the instrumentals in Yellow Submarine?

Which option comes closest to ''I like some of them and when I'm in the mood I listen to them''?

I'd go with what Linde said.

They can be a very soothing listen at times, very enjoyable, but dont listen to them that often. Usually i'll go for the Pepperland Suite which is a 6 minute cutdown delight of the whole side but with some additional drumming. Very very cool.

I've never even listened to them. I have seen the movie though, so I guess I actually have. Yellow Submarine is the only Beatles album I've never listened to in full. I started off with the mono box, which comes with the four new songs off Yellow Submarine, so I never really felt it was necessary to buy Yellow Submarine. I have it on vinyl now, though, so maybe some day I'll get around to listening to it.

I've always liked the instruments from Yellow Submarine. I wouldn't rank them very highly on a list of Beatles song, but they're enjoyable. "Sea of Time" just drips with George Harrison influence, and the "Sea of Holes" and "Sea of Monsters" aren't too bad either. I think it just takes more of a taste for classical to enjoy those. Probably also the reason I like the Pink Floyd album "Atom Heart Mother" a lot.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I enjoy the instrumental tracks as well - very relaxing.

'Pepperland' reminds me of the tune for the show 'Newhart'.

No poll option for "I've rarely listened to them (aside from passively, while watching the movie) but I suppose they make good soundtrack music. And it makes me really happy to know that George Martin probably earned a lot of money in royalties from them - he deserves it!"

I've only listened to them twice. Don't even have them on my phone yet. The Pepperland soundtracks are my favorite.

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

It isn't on my phone, but I do have the cd and listen to it when I'm in the mood to listen to them.

I picked "I don't have an opinion" apparently at some point, but I listened through them today sort of on accident but didn't turn it off. I enjoy it!
