Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

The whole rhythm counter-rhythm opening of Baby You’re A Rich Man & the clavioline melody are wunnerful! ( I recall a story that John was actually rolling an orange over the keyboard so the melody was purely accidental, but what a sweet accident!)

And Blue Jay Way ‘s swirling cello and organ sounds JUST like fog looks! (I live in SF. GH nailed the fog!)

How about the iconic intro to Blackbird ? I think that it is one of the best.

I’ve been appreciating that one lately, as I’ve been playing it a lot. 

I really love the intro to Lovely Rita : that jangly guitar, sweet drum fill, and then the vocal harmony part just takes you away.

I really love the intro to Revolution 9 . The piano bit leading into the “Number 9” is just beautiful!

Oh my goodness! I saw this thread and was like “And Your Bird Can Sing has a really nice intro.” Then I click on the thread and what do I see?a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I see someone looking at me someone has posted my thoughts.

The next one I hear because it’s gonna be followed by a Beatles song – and good, bad, or indifferent, I always like hearing a Beatles song.

I’ve seen people appreciating the count-in to Taxman , but I may like the Yer Blues count-in more. Its a tough decision, maybe the toughest of my entire life.

I was listening to It’s All Too Much the other day and remarking to myself on how fabutastilous the intro is. Whatever else you may say about the extended-ness of the outro, the ‘See yo’ma *WEEEEANDROOOOOMMMMMMAYOAYOAYOAYOAOAOAOOOOOOOWWW*….’ is brilliant. 

 

*That be my onamatopoeoa a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

Yes the intro to It’s All Too Much is amazing, and so is the following six minutes of the song.

I have to say that my favourite intro is probably A Day In The Life , but to be honest it’s impossible to choose.

It’s the one Beatles intro that never fails to send a chill up my spine.
