My personal favourite song from that album would have to be "When I'm 64" because of the bass line and how Paul's voice sounds in the song... It just sounds so cool/weird. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Well Starisson McLennon (teehee), I would have to say either Lovely Rita or Good Morning Good Morning! I think Lovely Rita is pretty dang cool if you ask me, and Good Morning Good Morning is my jam! I like the transition of GMGM to the reprise of Sgt. Pepper. Lovely Rita just is so catchy and infectious!

It is She´s Leaving Home, for me. I love the sound of the harp and how John kind of answers back to what Paul says, the lyrics are beautiful.

We struggled hard all our lives to get by... bye bye

Iheart that.

 

Of course, A Day In The Life deserves a mention as well for the pure wonderful-ness of it. Lennon at his best.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

I think my favourite song(s) would have to be She's Leaving Home, When I'm Sixty-Four, or A Day In The Life.

First of all, She's Leaving Home, because of the harp, and I really just love how Paul sings it.

When I'm Sixty-Four, because it's just such a happy-go-lucky song, with fun lyrics.

And A Day In The Life, because of John's vocals. They're just so... Echoing and they send shivers down your spine. I love it.heart

A Day In The Life, it is one of most epic songs ever written :).

A Day In The Life, because duh.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

She's Leaving Home (love the backing vocals on this one), Fixing A Hole, and Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite.

Hope you don't mind if I mention two songs:

"A Day In The Life" and "With A Little Help From My Friends"

 

"A Day In The Life" - good intro, good bass line and acoustic guitar and drum track, love the orchestra crescendos though they will sound creepy at late night, additions from both John and Paul, and of course the psychedelic flow in John's vocals. But the main reason is actually the fact how musically variated it is; I can relate to different moods in this song:

intro - well, not really sure what I can call it... a surprise is coming?

John's verses - psychedelic/sad (according to the lyrics which are based from newspaper articles)

orchestral part - scary (might be creepy at late nights)

Paul's verse - happy, optimistic (drug references in the lyrics, like getting high)

Bridge - psychedelic (what else can I say?)

Do I even need to take the "never could be any other way" (or what it is)-part? It sounds creepy enough as it can get!

 

"With A Little Help From My Friends" - good intro ("Biiiiiiiiiiiiiiillyyyyyy Sheeeeeeeeears"), awesome bass work by Paul, love the dialog in the lyrics (example: John/Paul/George - "Do You Need Anybody?" Ringo - "I need somebody to love."), one of Ringo's best vocal performances in a Beatles song!

Difficult one. There isn't a single song on the whole album that I DON'T like, but my marginal personal favourites are probably A Day In The Life, Within You Without You, Getting Better and Good Morning.

When I'm Sixty Four, Getting Better and Fixing Hole, I like them because they're very happy songs which always make me happy, I also like Within You, Without You, but most of the time I can't listen to it (like to many george songs e.g Isn't It A Pity, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Long Long Long, Something (which are all amazing songs but I'm just not in the mood for it very often, because they make me, I don't know the right word but something like, down)

"She's Leaving Home" is my personal favorite, love the vocals and the lyrics and just the whole theme and how the song came about...love Ringo's vocal on "...Friends"...

 

(I also get a kick out of "Mr. Kite" and even like "Sgt. Pepper" himself...

Definately Johns songs (lets not go down the line of who contributed what).

The crashing drums, scorching guitar solo and insane horns of Good Morning, Morning. The psychedelic delights of Lucy. How the effects bring Mr Kite to life. And yeah "A Day In The Life, because duh!". And Johns vocals are amazing on each and every one of them. As is Ringos drumming, ignoring A Day In The Life listen to the drums on Mr Kite, will have you drolling in wonderment.

Where is the field "Sign here" :D? I have the same opinion about the songs on Sgt Peppers.

Well, A Day In The Life always leaves me gasping for breath in front of the ingeniousness of John. It isn't a song I would like to hear too often, though. Asides from that, She's Leaving Home has awesome harmonies parts, and I like the classical instruments in it, also the mischievous "goodbye" from John at the end

I know it's pretty typical for someone's favorite song on Sgt. Pepper to be "A Day In The Life", but aren't there always valid reasons for a song to be so popular amongst so many? So, I'm going with:

...because I don't think the magic of "A Day In The Life" needs any further explaining. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Although, for some reason, I have really been enjoying "Within You Without You" for the past few days. Why has it taken me this long to appreciate the beautiful message in that song?! paul-mccartney
