In Hey Bulldog, "Big Man walking through the park. Wigwam, frightened of the dark". If any of you know what Slender is, you should know why it grabs me.

"I'd tell her I love her, but she'd only reject me in the end and I'd be frustrated. That's why I play guitar; it's my active compensatory factor" -Ringo said something like this once, I changed it up a bit.

The clinking cups in the background when John sings the line "The Duchess of Kirkaldy, always smiling and arriving late for tea," in Cry Baby Cry.

I've never played it, but I've seen YouTube videos of people playing it, and it seems cool. At least, it does in the day. At night, it's a different story...

I like the solo saxophone part at the end of Lady Madonna (Love Version). I don't see any reason why they should remove that part before releasing it.

Thanks to Slenderman I was afraid of cycling to the trainstation. I never knew the lyrics to Hey Bulldog, so thanks to you I'm reminded of Slenderman haha

Probably in Yer Blues when he sings "In the morning, wanna die." There just seems to be some soaring power there, more clearly defined than in the rest of the song. Except maybe the guitar solos.

The piano part at the very end of Tomorrow Never Knows.

I agree with you there. It's played by George Martin, right?

And speaking of fade-outs ("outros"), I was just listening to "Magical Mystery Tour."

I never cared for that song - except for the piano fade-out which is really a completely different piece (I wonder if on some level it inspired the structure of Clapton's "Layla" a few years later.)

I've always thought the full-length "Something" was the inspiration for the structure "Layla". About the same woman, both start with a song and then go out on a repeated, seemingly unconnected, riff lasting minutes. The full-length "Something" is lesser known however.

The ending to 'Thank You Girl' - never thought it was anything particularly special but I listened to it today and realised how much I like it.

The Thank You Girl outtakes where Ringo cant get the drumming part at the end down are really fun to listen to as you can hear the others dicussing how to help him stay on the right beat.

The double-tracking on the guitar solos in "I Feel Fine" and "She's A Woman" gives them a weird "aquatic" sound that I always liked.

The best bit is in "I Feel Fine", right after the solo, when there are like 4 guitars playing the riff in unison.

''Oh rock on George one time for me''

''Oh rock on George for Ringo one time''

 

I noticed that whenever I'm listening to Honey Don't (which isn't often as it's quite boring) I'm just waiting for those bits. They're just fun bits.

Any Time At All: "Any Time At All, Any Time At All, Any Time At All, all you've got to do is call, and I'll be there" - I love John's voice there.

I Should Have Know Better: "You're gonna say you love me too-oo-oo-oo-oo, ohh"- John really did have an amazing voice, and it was especially prominent in their early years IMO.

In case you were wondering, I just bought A Hard Day's Night (the CD).

Is this the first time you've heard it Egroeg? Whats your impressions?

Well, I've heard AHDN, Can't Buy Me Love, and And I Love Her before. I really like John's songs, more than I usually do. His voice and lyrics impress me more than they do on other albums. If I Fell and I'll Be Back have beautiful harmonies. I'm Happy Just To Dance With You is a good song, and I like that George sings it. To be honest, Things We Said Today is a little on the annoying side. But on the whole, I really like the album.

The way that Paul sings "anything that you Want" in 'From Me To You'.

The last time that they sing "should" in 'She Loves You'.

The guitar part between the words "tell you something" and "I think you'll understand" during 'I Want To Hold Your Hand'.

Paul's vocals during 'This Boy'. I like John's and George's too, but something about Paul's part always draws me to the song.

The very beginning of 'I Feel Fine'.

Anytime that John, Paul, and George harmonize(really hoping that I have the right word) for a song.

The sitar part in 'Norwegian Wood', along with John's vocals.

George's guitar part in 'And I Love Her'. If Paul's singing hasn't melted me into a puddle already, that guitar part finishes the job.

"Someday when I'm lonely, wishing you weren't so far away", "Someday when we're dreaming, deep in love, not a lot to say" in 'Things We Said Today'. I love how those parts sound, and it puts that song towards the top of my favorites list.

There are other things that I love I'm sure, but if I start trying to go through all of them, it'll take too long.

I also like Paul's vocal bit in "Sure to Fall In Love With You", the "darling don't ever let me go" part always gives me the shivers.
