I wonder why they included Help ! here despite it being completely unaltered besides the fact that it's now a 5.1 mix instead of a stereo mix. Also, what are these sounds from Carnival Of Light , I'd really like to hear them.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Right around at 3:14 there's like some weird noises that I can't identify and I have read somewhere that they used parts of Carnival Of Light for the album. I assume this was it really. I should have specify it.

Personally, I'm skeptical about Carnival Of Light appearing on Blue Jay Way . George Martin hated Carnival Of Light . It doesn't make any sense to me that he would include it.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

The only one i can think of for video is ok.ru which still has Beatles songs on it but there might be other places if it's just an audio file.

1. Because
Bird sounds from Across The Universe , World Wildlife Fund version. New recording of a wood pigeon.
We then go from A Day In The Life 's mighty E chord, backwards...

2. Get Back
...to the mighty opening chord of A Hard Day's Night : G11sus4.
The End drum solo.
Audience noise possibly from Hollywood Bowl concert, mixed with the A Day In The Life crescendo, which appears throughout.
The End  guitar solo fragments.
Percussion from Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise).
Vague Baby You're A Rich Man  beats (1:02-1:17)?

3. Glass Onion
"Oh" and "Hello, hello" from Hello, Goodbye .
Magical Mystery Tour trumpets (0:17-0:24).
Rhythm guitar from Things We Said Today .
Penny Lane trumpet (0:36-0:40).
"Ah" from Eleanor Rigby at the end (with heavy delay).

4. Eleanor Rigby /Julia
Orchestral version. Bits of Strawberry Fields Forever.
A Day In The Life swell again (starting as early as 2:40).

5. I Am The Walrus
No immediate reason, but this is the complete King Lear passage of which scattered fragments are heard:

Oswald: Slave, thou hast slain me. Villain, take my purse.
If ever thou wilt thrive, bury my body
And give the letters which you find'st about me
To Edmund, Earl of Gloucester. Seek him out
Upon the English party. O, untimely death!
Death! [He dies]

Edgar: I know thee well: a serviceable villain,
As duteous to the vices of thy mistress
As badness would desire.

Gloucester: What, is he dead?

Edgar: Sit you down, father. Rest you

6. I Want To Hold Your Hand
Hollywood Bowl audience noise -- and introduction: "Here they are: The Beatles!" The drums in particular sound rough; some instrumentation could be taken from the actual Hollywood Bowl live performance.

7. Drive My Car /What You're Doing /The Word
Drive My Car nicks Savoy Truffle 's horn section. Its own piano riff, "beep beep yeah", and drums reoccur at certain points throughout the whole track. Taxman 's rhythm chords added to Drive My Car . Plus Taxman 's solo. The "Ooooh" (0:42), lastly, is from Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.

8. Gnik Nus
"Gnik nus eht semoc ereh". Segues into:

9. Something /Blue Jay Way
Near the end, there is a bit of Nowhere Man (starting approx. 5:01) and the Yellow Submarine orchestral soundtrack composed by George Martin.

10. Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite!/I Want You (She’s So Heavy)/Helter Skelter
Laughter from unidentified Beatles session -- or Piggies ?
Horse sounds from Good Morning, Good Morning.
Harmonium from Cry Baby Cry . (I have a bootleg recording of John doodling a song which is a mixture of Cry Baby Cry and Kite, on harmonium.)
Delayed, reverbed Helter Skelter vocals.
Ends, appropriately, with a mélange of circus/Kite noises and the nightmarish I Want You (She's So Heavy). (Play this loud for great effect.)

11. Help !
12. Blackbird /Yesterday
13. Strawberry Fields Forever

Starts off with the original 1966 demo, then morphs into the first take, then gets its classic form. During the end section the following songs and fragments can be heard:

Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band (2:40)
In My Life baroque piano intermezzo (2:47)
Penny Lane piccolo trumpet (2:56)
Piggies harpsichord (3:06)
Hello, Goodbye bits and pieces throughout
The very last notes of the In My Life  glissando here and there at the end.

14. Within You Without You /Tomorrow Never Knows
Bass, drums from Tomorrow Never Knows .

15. Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds
Baby, You're A Rich Man's clavioline each time after the title is sung.
Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band: guitar, bass, drums, horns.
Bits of Tomorrow Never Knows 's famous "seagull" sound (actually McCartney's distorted guitar) near the end. The "Aaah": Dear PrudenceSun King ?
Good Night orchestration.

16. Octopus’s Garden
Continued Good Night orchestration.
Yellow Submarine fragments and sound effects.
Lovely Rita drums, Polythene Pam drums.
Lennon saying (1:34): "Great. Call that fab. Help . Great. Great, that. Beautiful. Sensational. Great. Fab. Isn't that great?"
Lady Madonna  guitar bits at the end (2:35, 2:40, 2:45).
Segues into the relaxing mood of Sun King.

17. Lady Madonna
Starts off with Why Don't We Do It In The Road? percussion.
Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da percussion too.
Hey Bulldog  guitar (1:58).
I Want You organ (starting 1:58).
Guitar solo fragment from While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
Saxophone from early take.

18. Here Comes The Sun /The Inner Light
Within You Without You tabla.
Oh Darling backing vocals after "Sun, sun, sun".
I Want You (She's So Heavy)'s bass line.

19. Come Together /Dear Prudence /Cry Baby Cry
Spookily, an even clearer "Shoot me!" Having started out as a campaign song for Timothy Leary ("Come together, join the party!"), the song obviously reveals Lennon's thoughts on idealistic political leaders (King, Kennedy, Gandhi): they might just as well say "shoot me" right away.
Eleanor Rigby orchestration over Can You Take Me Back? (That wasn't a question, the song is actually called Can You Take Me Back? No, not a question either--it's called Can You Take Me Back? Yes. Yes, it is.)

20. Revolution
21. Back In The U.S.S.R.
22. While My Guitar Gently Weeps

A companion of sorts to Here Comes The Sun ; more an elegy to the lonely shadow. Perfect anti-Romantic score by George Martin.

23. A Day In The Life
Intro from an earlier take.

24. Hey Jude
25. Sgt. Pepper ’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)

Paul yelling "Jude, Jude, Jude" near the end (ca. 1:09). By the way, the original Hey Jude has a really funny, fast, weird "Goodeveningladiesandgentlemen" at 6:21.
Revolution 's opening bars (0:08), very low in the mix.

26. All You Need Is Love
The fade:
Ticket To Ride  guitar (2:48)
Baby, You're A Rich Man (2:50)
Rain (2:52)
I Want To Tell You ("I got time") (3:00)
Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club (3:01)
Good Night orchestra leads to this poignant, strangely moving, when-we-were-lads bit:

"Alright, fade it there, champ! Take 7! Okay, put the red light on! This is Johnny Rhythm saying goodnight to you's all and God bless you's. (Jolly good, jolly good!)" Taken from their third Christmas disc.

27. The Fool On The Hill
Sitar from Yellow Submarine orchestral soundtrack.
Dear Prudence : piano.
Vocals, horns from Mother Nature's Son .
Drums from Maxwell's Silver Hammer.

28. Girl
Within You, Without You's sitar.
Guitar from And I Love Her (0:54, 1:25, 1:55, etc).
Drums from Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite (1:00).
