That little bit in Sgt Pepper (reprise) where they go “Sgt Pepper ’s one and only lonely hearts club band”. 

  

That's one that got me as a young kid listening to my father's cassettes and has lasted for almost 30 years. Same with John's echoing in 'Yellow Submarine ', especially "in our yellow". I adore both. The fragment is at 2:05 in the below video. I need to add that Ringo's vocal in 'YS' is magnificent, fits perfectly as it's not perfect in itself but is for the song.

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

The opening few chords on Circles always gives me chills. Makes me feel like I'm playing a text-based MMORPG

I've come to love how the music strips away on "I used to be cruel to my woman..." in 'Getting Better '. It's an admission of such horrendous inexcusable behaviour but whereas it could have been almost buried under the instruments instead its laid fully bare so everyone can hear. Paul isn't hiding this when singing it, he's saying it in a way no one can misunderstand the words.

Yes! and the way the tamboura drone comes to the fore and becomes really harsh and insistent, like guitar feedback, suggesting the unpleasant thoughts intruding on the singer's forced happiness. I feel the same way about the staccato guitar stab that runs nearly non-stop through the song - it's like a biting clenched-tooth forced grin, as though Paul is trying desperately to convince himself and everyone else that it really is getting better - even though he really couldn't feel any worse.

Everytime that drone comes in I sing along to the high harmony and when the phrase finishes I let out an audible “ohh.” Unbelievable to have that much songwriting confidence it takes to write that line and arrange the way they did. The concept of using the Sgt. Pepper ’s idea to write songs from other perspectives is in full effect here but there is also an inkling of reality to that line for John.

“Man I was mean but I’m changing my scene and I’m doing the best that I can” hits me in just the right spot after getting sober.
