I love how the melody on Dear Prudence goes from sounding all exotic and mysterious with the drone to being soaring and uplifting towards the end. Particularly that lead guitar line that starts up in the final third.

I've been up on the mountain, and I've seen his wondrous grace,
I've sat there on the barstool and I've looked him in the face.
He seemed a little haggard, but it did not slow him down,
he was humming to the neon of the universal sound.

I really like Dear Prudence .  I think a lot of the non-single White Album songs can get glossed over easily.  To me those are the gems on the album – Martha My Dear , Everybody’s got something to hide except for me and my Monkey, Sexy Sadie , and last but not least, I’m So Tired (a personal favorite of mine, and a probably future karaoke number a-hard-days-night-george-10.

The one thing I think Dear Prudence could do without is the repeat of John talking in the background about Mia’s sister “going insane.”  I think one time would have been enough.

  

Here’s a post from 5 years ago and it’s like he read my mind.

All those songs he mentioned are favorites of mine, I’ll add Long, Long, Long .

The first time I heard Dear Prudence I was blown away, so this is the new Beatles, WOW!

But this Mia Farrow sister thing is waaaay overblown, for example Good Morning Good Morning  wasn’t about corn flakes.

So last night I decided to make a little experiment and I decided to recreate my personal “single disc White Album ” on my computer but with the 2018 Mixes of the White Album instead, that I hadn’t really listened to before, and listen to it the whole way through without stopping, in total darkness.

Shoutout to my 4:20 guys as wella-hard-days-night-john-6

And oh man, how astonished I was when Dear Prudence came on. The others were great also, Yer Blues was considerably better as well, but the Dear Prudence remix is a brave new world. I love how they edited the guitars on the right channel to be in both channels reverbering and bouncing the whole song. It creates a whole new psychedelic and mind-bending experience. Dear Prudence was and is probably my absolute favourite Beatles song (definitely top 5) and I’m pleased to say this version is only an improvement. I didn’t know I wanted it changed but now when I listen to the original version the first 20 second sound kind of awkward because of that weird headphone change up around second 0:17. Now the song is fixed and perfect againa-hard-days-night-john-1Compare.

^^^ I know, right? I was kind of amazed to hear the 2018 mix; I really wasn’t expecting it. I love how full it sounds, especially the guitar that bookends it. It just kind of surrounds you, almost. Like sitting in an open field in the heat and the light of a warm sunny day, which is what this song reminds me of.a-hard-days-night-george-9heart

TBH, it’s because I questioned it when she joined so I looked her up and PM’d her when she joined (she is a beautiful person, like Dear Prudence ). I didn’t call out her name on the forum. But, again, that was my snooping nature in play. I guess I expect more people to be nosy like me.*

No, I’m not nosy. I don’t snoop. I’m just very thorough. ahdn_john_08_gif Anyone recall Joe’s birthday video???

Is that the lass who was in Grangehill? I was delighted when she joined up, sadly it was for the briefest of times.

According to her profile she was last on in February 2020 so maybe one day she will say hello again.

A work of art and the best Beatles opener, in my opinion.

I’m listening through the entire White Album now and Dear Prudence is currently playing. It’ rainy outside and for some reason it makes the song feel better to me, perhaps because of the gentle optimism it has. I associate water and wind with life.

I agree about the art bit, but “Dear Prudence ” doesn’t really open the album. Unless, you’re counting it and “Back In The USSR ” together as the opener, as they’re linked? a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I’m referring to that, and I see it like that. The segue makes them one and thus an opener.

I grew up watching Grange Hill (was born in the very early 80’s so i would have been watching in 1989), loved that show on the BBC and the theme tune remains brilliant. Was far better than so many of todays soaps with some great storylines and acting. How dramas should be. 

So to have someone who was in it on here is really quite something. 

I just wanted to derail the whole thread by saying hi.

Yes I’m the grange hill lassie. About the much remembered grange hill prom episode, the BBC are a lot better at ladies formal wear than most shops and stores in real life were then and are now. When I was trying on stuff for a real life dance, almost all I tried on was so tight that it felt like everything was display even if the dress covered it.

as I pointed out to someone, you can understand why model/actress Megan Fox got so upset. It was more being treated as a blow up doll than Fox having an attitude problem.

I found this song a while ago and I listen to it multiple times a day and I just can’t get bored of it. My favourite lyric is “The sun is up, the sky is blue It’s beautiful, and so are you” I also love that guitar lick that comes in at 2:55 in the left channel. This whole song is just beautiful especially John’s vocals, Paul’s drumming, and that acoustic guitar in the right channel.

Personally, and this may be my bias as I have a really big soft spot for bass and I know a lot of bassists and I play bass as well as guitar (by choice rather than necessity), but I really love the bass line on this song.

@Beatlebug 

That’s a great idea waking up to Dear Prudence , especially those first couple of minutes.

I’m trying to think of other Beatles songs that would be good for that… Of course the obvious one would be Here Comes The Sun , and Good Day Sunshine (the latter of which I could imagine for an enterprising junior law partner who likes to get up immediately energized). But I would prefer to be gently coaxed awake, and that song by Lennon You Are Here would be be the best I can think of.
 

I found an isolated bass track on YouTube for Dear Prudence , but I can’t believe that is accurate. Is Paul really doing that with his bass? It sounds like he turned off the amplifier LOL, and he’s just scraping and plucking at it to try to get a sound out of it. When I listen to the song normally I can hear the low rumbling quality of a normal bass, which is totally absent from this isolated track.

Dear Prudence ‘s opening is very nice to wake up to, especially with John gently but urgently encouraging you to open up your eyes, greet the brand-new day, etc. Another Beatles song I often use is Mother Nature’s Son .
