I appreciate damp, chilly grey weather. I'm serious. I love it. It's so atmospheric and cosy, you can wrap it around you like a blanket whilst you huddle in the warmth and comfort of your house and/or warm clothes. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I also appreciate taking walks in said weather. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif And I saw a bunch of sweet little cats running around which made me think of the derail in this thread. heart

Where do you live, BB - is it NC or TN?

(Or is my faulty memory just pulling those two states out of nowhere?)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

NC, occourse. Not sure where you got Tennessee -- it's a very nice state and I hear they don't pay income taxes, only sales tax, but I live and die a Tar Heel, thank you very much! a-hard-days-night-john-1 (although because my family is from Georgia I root for the Georgia Bulldogs in college football, but that's another story)

I appreciate how talented The Beatles were at creating intros to their songs:

I've Just Seen A Face

Drive My Car

Long, Long, Long

Sexy Sadie

For You Blue

Across The Universe

...

It's not an easy thing to do.

It's such a beautiful, understated melody. I love how it resolves at the end of the song.

No Reply has no intro, which in itself is a creative and unique way to start a song, and album for that matter

You know exactly what I'm going to say ahdn_john_08_gif

But since this is an appreciation thread, I think I'll join @Ahhh Girl in appreciating What You're Doing : the 12 string guitar riff is stunning and sounds very homely to me.

AG was appreciating What You're Doing , @QuarryMan ... but I'm glad to see you showing some love for What Goes On (even if you did mean What You're Doing , I'm screenshotting this and holding it against you a-hard-days-night-john-6)

Damnit, I have really played myself herea-hard-days-night-ringo-8a-hard-days-night-john-6paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif PSA: I did in fact mean What You're Doing , not What Goes On .

Well, at least the guitar part of the latter is my favourite part about a song which I otherwise dislike. I'm still editing my post.
