At the very end of the mono ‘Hey Jude ‘ Ringo starts to speed up as well, it’s in the fade-out.

Its because Ringo’s fills are alternating throughout the whole song. Goes back to quarter notes, then explodes into those fills. The ending can sound like mayhem but is so well crafted.

In “Yellow Submarine ” when John starts to sing “Everyone of us…” and ends with a “yihaaa!!..” or whatever he says there.

his finest performance imo

it’s really remarkable how you can still discover new stuff in Beatles songs after being familiar with them for so long!

Hello

I have comeback to the forum after years. I wanted to restart with replying to this lovely topic

In “That means a lot” when Paul says: “A touch can mean so much when it’s all you’ve got” I feel really nostalgic as I could barely attract girls  when I was very young and I was deeply in love with a religious girl. The sad and later funny thing is that I didn’t get that touch.

The last five notes immediately before John starts the last “I read the news today” in A Day In The Life .

The moment straight after Paul sings somebody spoke and I went into a dream always gives me goosebumps.

Not sure if this one has been mentioned yet, but I love the ‘off key’ piano played by Paul in George’s ‘I Want To Tell You ‘! It really enhances an already good song!

That piano part is a high point of the whole album. The harmonies in the outro also lean into finding the dissonance in motion, searching for those nice crunchy half step intervals… “I’ve got tiiiiiiiiiime” Very psychedelic
