I've always been curious about the Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey! segment in Kansas City . I wish I knew exactly the note they're getting there. 

Bb4. Paul does, at least. The others sort of yell approximately at it after him.

I was wondering because I heard the same note in She Said She Said .

The solo to Til There Was You in the Ed Sullivan show had been on my mind, and I've always liked the solo in the Decca version of Crying, Waiting, Hoping.

Another fragment:

 

I like the way they (John, Paul and George all together, I believe) emphasize the "GUH!" at the end of "Good Morning, Good Morning, Good MorninggggggGUH!!"

I love the violin part in The Long And Winding Road where it goes B-flat D E-flat B-flat C D E-flat C D D E-flat D E-flat F E-flat F G or something like that... I don't have it completely figured out. But I love it anyway, and the whole song is beautiful, though rather un-Beatleish.

I love George's guitar solo in this song during the Royal Command Performance. The acoustics in the Prince of Wales Theatre provided a little bit of an echo effect. Solo is about 1:35 in.

Considering the beatles played Till There Was You live i dont get where the stories came from that George didnt play the solo on the album.

Speaking of "Julia ", I like the final note, where John sings a low tonic C while the dissonant B natural note in the Cma7 chord reverberates.

Did you know that those seagull cries in "Tomorrow Never Knows " are actually Paul's laugh taped and played back at high speed?

I learned that from Joe's research (you can find lots of neat details about all the songs by clicking on the "Songs" tab at the top of the website).

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 That's cool!

I also kinda like the part of I Want To Tell You where the backup singer's voice cracks a little on "I feel hung up but I don't know why."

I don't hear that.

It's around 1:20. It's the highest (sung) note you hear. Maybe it's more of a waver.

I still don't hear it.  Maybe it's a hemidemisemi-quaver...

A 64th of a quaver. :)

(I had no idea what a hemisemidemiquaver was until I looked it up. Why can't people in Britain just call it a 64th note like they do in America? It's much easier to say. :D )

Because the British way is the original way a-hard-days-night-george-10

I know what you mean about the crack in I Want To Tell You , Egroeg- Paul seems to strain quite severely on that high B. Speaking of that song though, I also love the winding Eastern scale he vocalises right at the end, in the last chord of harmonies.

You mean "I've got ti-iii-iii-iii-me" or whatever it is right at the fadeout?

That's the one. It's a nice little nod to George's new musical and spiritual direction, much like the Indian feel of the guitar solo Paul played in Taxman which George was pleased with.

Yeah, I like that part too. Both things you said, actually. The Eastern scale and the guitar solo in Taxman .

I just noticed how nice the harmonies are in Oh! Darling , simple but still really nice, never really listened properly before. I love it how I keep on discovering new things that I love about The Beatles.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.
