This afternoon, Mrs Japanese and I were discussing Revolution 9 and she asked me what other Beatles songs had found sounds/samples in them. (i.e. sounds taken from other recordings)

So far I can think of the following:

Revolution 9

Sgt. Pepper – I believe the audience and/or laughter is from a recording of Beyond The Fringe.

Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite – Steam Organ and Calliope sounds during the instrumental break.

Yellow Submarine – the brass band after ‘and the band begins to play’.

Back In The USSR the sound of the plane , I Am The Walrus (recorded live from the radio)

Do their own samples count? If so Tomorrow Never Knows , You Never Give Me Your Money /Sun king…

First off a correction; although the names are unknown, @Tony Japanese, Yellow Submarine ‘s brass band were session musicians recorded during 1 June 1966 session for the song.

Anyway:

Good Morning Good Morning /Sgt. Pepper (Reprise) – the hunt and animals that link the two tracks;

Across The Universe [WWF version] – from the EMI sound effects library, birds tweeting and flying, children playing;

Blackbird – from the EMI library, recorded by Stuart Eltham in his back garden in around 1965, the sound of birdsong and an alarm cry when he startled the bird;

Piggies – a tape of pigs snorting made by John from another EMI library recording, from the tape Animals and Bees (Volume 33), emphasised with group making pig noises over the top;

Free As A Bird – the sound of birds wings flapping on the video version, harking back to Across The Universe .

You can also include any track that featured Mellotron, as that used magnetic audio tapes of around eight seconds that featured different instruments and sounds, running from the flute on Strawberry Fields to the guitar flourish at the beginning of Bungalow Bill.

I’ll probably think of more.

Re: Yellow Submarine .

Thanks for the correction @Ron Nasty. I was going by Ian MacDonald’s comments in Revolution in the Head, but can see that information has since been disproven. apple01

I don’t know if the laughter at the end of Within You Without You is either sampled or not, it seems so to me

“Fool on the Hill” seems to have a speeded-up tape of birds, or possibly one of Paul’s leftover TNK loops, near the end…but I’m not really sure what exactly that is; dunno if Joe’s article clarifies matters

I think in Magical Mistery Tour there is the sound of a Bus or something like that?
