Anyone notice someone is making vocal noises in the left hand channel of the song at the beginning? Was listening to the track in my earphones earlier today and heard it for the first time. No idea I missed it the first 3,000 times I've heard it.

Good spot! It has to be the count-off. They obviously thought they had it buried adequately in the mix: they throught wrong. 😉

Sounds more like someone mouthing what would become the horns than a count-in. My bet is that its Paul.

My English teacher gave us holiday homework (poo... how I'm spending this afternoon, while it is 36C outside... could be worse!) to review a book/poem in the genre of adventure, so I picked the poem Got To Get You Into My Life by John Lennon /Paul McCartney ! This is the first time I've actually studied the lyrics, and they actually do have meaning!

After studying the lyrics I now legitimately want to do LSD. Once. Then never again!

LOL. An interesting take on the topic of "adventure". An adventure of the mind. I hope the teacher accepts it.

As has been pointed out, the song is an ode to pot, not LSD. 

Once. Then never again!  

George said you only need it once*. 

Syd Barrett didn't think so, unfortunately... ahdn_paul_01

*Of course, he had it more than once...

From what I understand, it's not how many times you take it that's dangerous but how much you take at once.

And it's not a good idea if you have mental illness.

But I wouldn't have any first-hand knowledge of such illegal things, of course.

LSD has no fatal dose, but its intensity can start to affect the mind after repeated use.

My teacher just got back to me, and said she loved it! It was 'very creative!', apparently. 

And for all the people saying Paul wrote this about pot, I know! But my teacher doesn't, and LSD drives my point home much more strongly. 

And @Beatlebug, I want to take LSD once, even if it technically has nothing to do with Got To Get You Into My Life

Why do you want to take LSD?

It's absolutely not what you hope it might be. It's definitely just a drug and nothing more.
