Ringo's drumming and the backwards part at the end make this song standout for me.

And the line 'When the sun shines, they slip into the shade, and sip their lemonade' as a sly remark, when the rain comes, people run and hide their heads wishing it was sunny, but then when the sun comes out, they go into the shade to escape.

I love the Beatles, each of John, Paul, George and Ringo and there music and art work! I have some comments and questions and would appreciate it if you would respond and answer them.

1. Is there a similarity in the tunes of "She's Got a Ticket To Ride " and "Rain "? It probably is just me. Later, John did sing the same thing over and over, making it better and better: an almost one note song with descending chords, most beautifully present in "Julia ". Incidentally, Karen Carpenter's "She's Got a Ticket To Ride " was the first hit of the Carpenters and Karen already hit the low note that breaks your heart. To say I love her is an understatement.

2. When The Beatles recorded "Rain ", first they recorded the rhythm section fast and then they slowed it down. I do not understand what that accomplishes. Paul said it made the sound richer but I do not get it. Could you explain it to me? This song is wonderful from beginning to end. Sometimes a song just seems like a particular sound stretched out into a song. For example, Beethoven's Fifth starts with the famous four notes and the whole symphony develops from it. Often, the Stones seem to get a sound, "Beast of Burden", for example, and it fills out into a gorgeous song. Listen to their live performance of it in Texas in 1977 (YouTube). Here, it sounds like the same thing happened. And Ringo's drumming (and Paul's bass and George's guitar and John's singing; wow! But especially Ringo)! It seems to me that this one led up to "Tomorrow Never Knows " but is a jewel (or a rain drop in itself. Incidentally, returning to my sound idea, if you listen to Roky Erickson's "I Walked With a Zombie" (you will love it) it sounds at first like the Stones, the sound is just great, but it almost has the same tune as Ben E. King's "Stand By Me ", which is a fun coincidence: from Stand By Me to I walked with a zombie.

Thanks for reading.

Hello @Steven. I do see a similarity between Ticket To Ride and Rain – the guitar riffs and vocal melodies are similar, and both have a grinding or plodding rhythm.

As far as the drums on Rain , it does enhance the plodding feeling because, back when the Beatles were recording, slowing down a tape made the pitch lower as well as the music rhythmically slower, and so the drums on this track sound lower and therefore bigger and more sonorous than they would normally. I hope that helps shed some light on Paul's quote.

I happened to be singing that tune to myself (having just heard it in the car) as I sat down to a card game with my mom and others, and mom asked me "where did you ever get that song in your head?" The answer surprised her.

  

I miss Matt Busby!  🙁
