What I like about John’s songs on Revolver (especially She Said She Said , And Your Bird Can Sing , Doctor Robert ) is how they feel part of an ongoing series with the same type of sound. And as said, Rain and I’m Only Sleeping go together very nicely. He definitely had an established sound for this album.

  

There is an interesting discussion about this in this documentary.

There are several such documentaries available - I have been streaming them on Amazon Prime. They include the above as well as 1957-1965, post-Beatles, etc... They feature writers from different rock mags, well known authors of Beatles books, even Klaus Voormann. The discussions are centered on the songwriting and what influenced it at the times the songs were written. Very well done IMHO.

The following people thank Zig for this post:

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

And Your Bird Can Sing and She Said She Said always gave me an impression that they were about the same person.
