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.

Haha I got recommended that a few days ago. Listening to it now, it’s great paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Some, like You Won’t See Me (which has a very prominent rhythm section) or In My Life (which I’ve played), I could recognize right off, but Nowhere Man was mind-blowing! Never really paid attention to the bass on that one (the vocals are too diatractingly amazing), but it’s like a whole nuther song.

I thought you might be exaggerating about it sounding like a wholly different song — but I just listened to the isolated bass and you’re right!  Someone should construct a new song from that bassline!

Exaggerating? Me?! I’ve outgrown the pimply teenage hyperbole, thank you very much! a-hard-days-night-george-10

The idea of building a whole new song on top of an existing Beatles bassline is a thrilling one. a-hard-days-night-paul-7
