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.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. 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.

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 .
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.

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote
