Michelle and What Goes On is the weakest part of the album for me – but still love ‘em.

I think Michelle is brilliant. Lyrics are cheesy without a doubt, but the progression and melody are gorgeous. Particularly the ascending diminished triad on “go together well.” Those high notes on “I Love You” also rule. A great example of how prolific of a songwriter Paul is, even though I think John takes the cake for his output on Rubber Soul

It’s more that I prefer the energy of the other songs and that segment feels like a lull of sorts. But they fit in with the rest of the album. What I love most about Rubber Soul is how full of life it is. 

The following people thank Timothy for this post:
