It almost sounds like he's making a "k" sound at the end? Maybe?

It sounds like John to me... so it could be anything. a-hard-days-night-george-10

You’re right. I used to think it was John saying ‘it’s all too much’ either quickly or in shortened form.

Sounds like there is an edit where John drops out therefore I will kick and scream like a 3-year old throwing a tantrum due to wanting a 35p sweet in Tesco that John was saying "To your mother". If this was recorded after 'YMSK' I'd used that as my case for the defence but it wasn't so I can't.

Yep that's what I hear too - but because it's been edited, it sounds like 'muv'.

I've once again been listening to this one a lot lately.

 

For me to say it was probably their best song would be a bit silly, considering at least my top 10, if not even top 30 are always near the number 1 spot. But I'm easily ready to place it in my top 10 now.

 

With every other band this would have been their great signature song, their The End or Stairway to Heaven. For the Beatles it's merely a relatively unknown and obscure song, only to be found on an insignificant soundtrack-quasi-EP, written by the guitarist who's often seen as the secondary part-time-songwriter of the group.

 

I love it for how untamed it is, for feeling like complete musical anarchy while still being able to keep its structure, always on the brink of spinning out of control. So fuzzy and loose, yet still reflecting George's soft and gentle personality. A complete masterpiece.

 

And to think George made this and Within You Without You in the same year is crazy. The man was a musical genius.

Being on a big Sonic Youth kick at the moment, it's amazing how much this song foreshadowed the way artists in the future would utilise feedback and distortion. I know the likes of Hendrix and the Velvet Underground were going pretty wild guitar-wise at the same time, but I don't think either of them did in quite this way. I don't know what it is but it almost decorates the sound of the song.

In my journey of listening to my whole Beatles collection this song of course came up recently.  This is one of my absolute favorite George songs, or Beatles songs in general.  I've honestly always heard "To your mother" at the beginning.  My question is what is said after the "With your long blonde hair and your eyes of blue" bit?  He says "It's All Too Much " and then something that sounds like "We are dead".  I remember looking up the lyrics to this song a few years ago and the lyrics said "we are dead", however when I looked them up again recently I couldn't find a site that said "we are dead".  So what does George say there?

  

It is definitely "We are dead" followed by "God bless us"...

I was so glad to hear this song as the only write-in on the Sirius countdown show "All Together Now " -- such an underrated song in my opinion -- the recording truly sounds like a "happening"!
