I’ve only now noticed something different in the new 2018 mix of this: Giles brought way up several seconds of John’s saxophone-mouthpiece squeals right near song’s end, during Ringo’s climactic three cymbal smashes  and all throughout his blister complaint. I heard it played a couple of times last week and thought “what? have I missed that for years, was that always there?”

There is the common argument whether Helter Skelter or “I Can See For Miles” by The Who – the former being written in competition of The Who – I can say now that THE BEATLES WON! 

“I Can See For Miles” is sung more lower and tries to be ominous, but Helter Skelter is 4 minutes of literal screaming from Paul McCartney ,  all the while sound effects and drumming and whining guitars make it sound like the apocalypse, and even influenced a serial killer (Charles Manson) to kill Sharon Tate.

The original Heavy Metal song is not to be beaten by anything before it!

Who plays the guitar on this song, because there is a guitar piece which sounds like a motorcycle idling. It’s pretty cool, because its like “Hell’s Angels”. Well done, Paul.
