Same. The emphasis John makes is so satisfying.

The song which gives me goosebumps every time is “Yesterday “. This is one of the most popular but on my mind one of the best songs by the Beatles. I really try to listen to this song as rarely as I can so that she doesn’t bother me.

I find it satisfying that Sexy Sadie raves about I’m So Tired while Sir Walter Raleigh continues his tirade of Sexy Sadie praise

Give Past Masters a listen if you haven’t already. It includes some great tracks and B sides that often get forgotten because they weren’t included on original albums.

(This Boy , Yes It Is , I’m Down , Rain , Old Brown Shoe – to name a few.)

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

Absolutely. Past Masters is a good place to look. Anthology and the bonus tracks for the White Album , Sgt Pepper and Abbey Road anniversary releases too.

The intro music to Sun King always gets me. It’s so unlike anything else (that I’ve heard anyway).

Sun King is insanely psychedelic. Maybe the most of any song ever. Hard to put into words how amazing the feeling of that song is.

That drum section solo in Birthday . In the deluxe album sounds pretty tight, and i love how it builds up tension with the screaming in the background.

I’ve been on a Beatles For Sale kick the last few days, but a small fragment I’ve seemed to enjoy and pay more attention to than before is the “bye bye” backing vocals of Kansas City /Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey. Of course, Paul’s vocal is absolutely magnificent, but I also really love the punchy and almost wavery blend of John and George’s voices, if those are the right words… a-hard-days-night-john-6ahdn_george_08

funny, I’ve been pretty into that album too!

I think my fave moment on Kansas City is the transition from the solo to the Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey! part

acmac said in December 2013 (page 14 of this thread)
General note for all the Beatles: I love how clear and wet they can make their Ks and (hard) Cs. Perhaps something to do with their Scouse-ness?

  

I really noticed this clear and wet k/c sound while listening to Happy With You. 

Then I few moments later, I started to wonder what that sound would be like if Paul had used it on Fuh You.
