Listened to this song for the first time in a while and I was instantly transported back to this past summer, when I first heard it, and was listening to it a lot. I could feel the humid summer air pressing down on me and smell the summer grass (or maybe I just teleported to Australia???) So weird when that happens a-hard-days-night-paul-7 

Great little tune this is, I like the cowbell, and can anybody keep a smile off their face when hearing those giggles? Even if you've been informed of it beforehand, as I was, it's still so unexpected and hilarious-- and of course the fact that he sounds kinda drunk through the whole thing helps. a-hard-days-night-john-6  The non-giggles version just ain't as much fun. Trust George to release the version that most would shelf... ahdn_george_06 

It's a bit daft to play it without singing it, though; you've just got this everlasting G chord that goes on and on and on until finally you get to the D (under the word 'Bombay' in the first verse). If you don't sing anything it just sounds like you're noodling a random chord. a-hard-days-night-paul-10 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

Ahem.

 

I love this song, it is a really great little ditty. Everything about it is great- George needed more harmonica based songs and I love the giggles as well.

It is a fantastic track, i prefer it to the a-side. The single was the first George 45" i ever owned and i played 'Miss O'Dell' endlessly, the laughter being a huge attraction to a growing young boy.

The alternate version suffers drastically due to no laughing George.

I love this song dearly, but I'm fortunate enough that I don't think I've heard the non-giggle version? The laughter is the best part.
