A short documentary from the 'One Show'. Ringo appears at the end as he was on the show, and yes, this is the Ringo appearance I occasionally go on about. No idea if it's available complete or not.

yo WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS

 

I had never listened to the super deluxe, and I was into it until She's Leaving Home appeared and it sounds aawwffuull what the hell? Why is the mono version sped up?, one of the best tracks on Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band, ruined in this weird fast version. They sound so rush, it's unbearable. Compare it to the OG:

the watusi

not surprising as She’s Leaving Home has never sounded good. Giles Martin tried, but probably didn’t care as much as the others, knowing his father didn’t arrange it. Just speculation

Mono was the preferred mix at the time so the weird sped-up mix is presumably how it was meant to be. 

No matter how I approach this track I cannot find anything to get involved over. I feel I should like the vocals more but I come away cold. Maybe it's the backing track which is nothing to get moved by.

She's Leaving Home is one of those tracks where I can only enjoy listening to it in the context of the album, but not by itself, y'know? 

Like if it came up on shuffle or on a playlist then I'd skip it because I just get bored listening to it by itself outside of Sgt. Pepper 's ethos.

This is one of their best songs, IMO. Not in a 'top 10 Beatles songs EVER way' or an 'unforgettable, timeless classic' way, mind. More in a way that every time you hear it you appreciate how moving and timeless the storytelling is, and also how tasteful and lush the arrangement is. Harp and strings are always a nice combo. 

The theme of child-parent disconnect has been widely celebrated elsewhere (The Breakfast Club and Dylan's 'The Times They Are A-Changing' being the examples that jump to mind) but I think this song is a particularly unappreciated entry in the genre.

SLH is one of the 3 Beatles tracks that is studied for Leaving Cert Music over here. It very rarely comes up (When I'm Sixty-Four being the most popular one for some reason).

 

Here are the 2010 questions on SHL:

For the performing part of the exam, if you choose to sing, 'When I'm Sixty-Four ' is considered the standard for a not very impressive singer- fun fact.

It's the title track for Sgt. Pepper 's. Each year you study either those 3 Beatle songs OR Bohemian Rhapsody for the 'popular music' section. This year, the Fabs are up, although at the mo eyebrows are raised as to whether we'll even have exams.

Why are all three from 'Pepper'?

No clue, I don't think there's any real reasoning behind it, as you never have to compare and contrast them. Might just be showing students the diversity of 3 pieces from one album OR most likely the Examinations' Commission got a deal on licencing them all from one album because they get played to about 10,000-ish students a year so I imagine it's a decent chunk of money for Apple and Sony/ATV.

 

Update: Looking at some copyright law (for the UK at least), it looks like the short excerpt that is actually played in the exams is within fair use but the entire thing is played to students in the classroom so idk.

You keep ’She’s Leaving Home’ and I'll have ’Within You, Without You’. Fair?

 

Edit: tho we will need an agreement in place so we can borrow the songs when listening to the albums in full. Bring your lawyer, I’ll bring mine and then we can get together and have a bad time thrashing out the details.

You know, I've been listening to this since I was a kid and always appreciated it aesthetically as a well-crafted piece of music that was fun to sing, but I hadn't heard it in a while when I decided to listen to it the other day and it struck me anew how excellent a lyric it has. Paul really paints an emotional narrative with this one, and handles the parents' and the girl's opposing perspectives with great sensitivity; you really feel for both sides. I had never really seen the song that way before and was impressed.
