Simple, which is your favorite Beatles, or Beatles related instrumental song, I personnally enjoy Flying.

 

Flying

12-Bar Original

Cry For A Shadow

Cayenne

Marwa Blues

A Beginning

 

I can't think of another one right now, but if yours isn't listed, let me know.

 

SQ1: Rush - YYZ, any comments? (My favorite non-Beatles related instrumental)

 

SQ2: Do I post to much on these fourms?

When I Twish And Shout, it makes the Girl say "What Goes On?", and than I say, "I do this Here, There and Everywhere", and than she finishes by saying "Honey Don't".

My favorite Beatles related instrumental song is by Booker T and the MG's and it's called Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End/Here Comes The Sun/Come Together where they combine all of those songs into one spectacular little medley. As for the side questions Rush makes a lot of noise for only three guys and you don't post too much, but it wouldn't hurt to start a few less threads so that the other posters not currently on can respond to the other interesting threads already started. We're all huge Beatles fans here, but there is no race to answer every Beatles related question in only a few days. Just give some of the other threads a chance to gain some momentum because then the discussions become more fun.

It's hard to say. I can think right now of Eleanor Rigby strings only version. Ask me tomorrow and I'll give you another answer.

I like the long instrumental of Eleanor Rigby too, and Flying, and 12-Bar Original, and Cry For A Shadow... pretty much everything else you posted up there a-hard-days-night-george-9 But I also enjoy the instrumentals featured in the early Beatles films like "This Boy (Ringo's Theme)" in A Hard Day's Night and the "A Hard Day's Night" instrumental in Help! a-hard-days-night-paul-2

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

Outstanding choice. I also enjoy the instrumental version of Within You Without You on Anthology.

Right! The scene where Ringo tries to take his own picture along side the canal! Every time I see that, I crack up. I know it's coming and I still laugh out loud when the camera hits the water.

"12-Bar Instrumental" is interesting, and I think it woulda made a nice addition to "Rubber Soul" (as a replacement for "Run For Your Life", perhaps, my least favourite song on that album) but for George Martin's unfortunate harmonium contribution. His keyboard contributions were usually stellar, but he really had no clue how to improvise in a blues style, and his minimal licks and chords really weaken the whole. If only John had contributed a noisy "I'm Down"-style organ solo instead! 

But in Martin's defense, I give him full credit for the "Eleanor Rigby" arrangement - superb! It's got that same "stabbing" orchestral feel as Bernard Herrmann's main theme from "Psycho" (which Martin was inspired by, of course), and one of these days I'm going to make a mashup of the two. In the meantime, yeah, I'll go with the pre-vocal "Eleanor" for favourite instrumental. Not that there were many to choose from, of course...

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Can I ask you, why do you not like Run For Your Life, i think it's daring, and great musically. a-hard-days-night-paul-5

"Run For Your Life" - It's not bad (OR badass!), but it's not great, and I think it's the weakest song on the album. And an album should NOT end with its weakest song!  "Revolver" through "Abbey Road" all ended with a "Big Event" - "Tomorrow Never Knows", "A Day In The Life", "Revolution 9", the "Big Medley" - and it would've been nice if "Rubber Soul" had begun that trend by ending with "12-Bar Original" (if it were better) instead of "Run For Your Life". Their first instrumental! Their first cut over 6 minutes (if they used the longer Take 2)! Their first title track to a non-soundtrack album (if they went with the title "Rubber Soul" instead of "12-bar Original", as was their intention, it's been speculated)!  On an album full of experiments and Beatle firsts, "12-Bar Instrumental / Rubber Soul" would have been entirely appropriate and would've been a nice inclusion, conceptually. (Even though musically it's really not that great...)

That's an interesting take on it.  

I have always viewed 12BO to be a glorified jam session. George Martin said that the Beatles jam sessions "were usually not very good". If they did more work (a lot more work) on it, I guess it could have been included on the album.

As for RFYL being the weakest song on the album, let me turn your attention to What Goes On.

The weakiest song on Rubber Soul, that's tough, I'd have to go with Michelle, it's mostly repeating of french words, which I'd probably enjoy more if I didn't speak it.

What I never understood about Michelle is why he wouldn't just learn how to say I love you (je t'adore, yes?) in French, rather than pointing out that 'Michelle' and 'belle' rhyme.

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

It's not even clever, like don't get me wrong, the song is pretty good, but compared to the rest of the album, I don't think so. I would have placed it on A Hard Day's Night, but it would be pretty out of place there. Maybe replace Michelle with a worked on 12BO, and move Michelle to Past Masters or Anthology, I would prefer that.
