I start a LOT of topics, and this is my 4th, I think.

A few Beatles songs that give me the creeps are Revolution 9 , Blue Jay Way , Long, Long, Long , and A Day In The Life . These songs are all great, though!

Buy "Riding so high: The Beatles and drugs" right here: https://www.amazon.ca/Riding-S.....038;sr=8-1

I've read it, and it's great!  

And don't forget to vote blue jay way (and rocky raccoon) higher up on the 2021 Beatles song poll. If you don't wanna vote it, that's fine.

This may be blasphemy, but I still have never listened to Revolution 9 all the way through. It's too scary!

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

of days

My dad was a huge fan of the Rat Pack. He loved to go to Vegas and watch them have a party onstage. I always thought that was the opposite of the Beatles premise, which was to do be one with their audience. The first time I heard You Know My Name, I listened in dread as my heroes seemed to be morphing into my dad's heroes.

That’s awesome. Probably what John was going for. Its a really spooky piece I remember it scaring the hell out of me as a kid. 

The strings in I Am The Walrus are great, but they have always given me the creeps, especially the section before “sitting in an english garden” section.

The story about the Eleanor Rigby graveyard gave me the shivers when I first heard it. 

The song is pretty creepy in general, to be honest. "Wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door", yikes

¡No pasarán!

No Beatles song creeps me out, but the scariest would be Long, Long, Long , Cry Baby Cry and Revolution 9 . But their scary in an enjoyable way.

 

The White Album in general. It reminds me of works from David Lynch, if anyone is familiar with him. Especially Twin Peaks.

 

And I've listened to Revolution 9 many times. (Take this, brother, may it serve you well…!)
