Darn it, I got the word wrong... John still sings the low part on on "hiiiiide". It's the "haaaaaaand" where he abnormally sings the high. a-hard-days-night-george-2 Woops a-hard-days-night-paul-11 But still, it's weird!

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

Yes. I agree. Very much. MeanMrs.Mustard, you is not lying!
 

(MeanMrs.Mustard is being the scribe): Do I HAVE to type "is" instead of "are?"

Me: Yes. Yes you do. 

I wouldn't be caught dead in them. They're dead grotty.

Does anyone know who sings Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds the first time in the chorus? It sounds like Paul, and John sort of greets him when he gets to the word diamonds.

It might be John at first and then he double tracks his vocal. I'm not sure.

Hmm, listening to it now I think you're right about that. We really need Paul to join the forum so we can get some answers.

In the early years: This Boy . In the later years, Because

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, girls. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

Yes It Is and You're Going To Lose That Girl are my favourites but Nowhere Man is really close.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's
