Well hello there, welcome to our little forum!

Surely someone has already directed you to the Introduce Yourself thread?

Anyway, I like how you've got an opinion. By the way, the woman in Bungalow Bill is Yoko Ono, in case you didn't know.

Now you've started about ADITL..I actually started asking myself why it's so popular, and couldn't really find an answer. Perhaps it's a combination of things.

I find it a masterpiece for multiple reasons: firstly, how grandiose it is, with an entire orchestra crescendo, reflecting the Albert Hall theme. Secondly, amazing instrumentals - just listen to that bass, that guitar and those drums - which are outstanding from many other songs, especially of its era; it was unlike many things of its time. Thirdly, John's legendary vocals. I could go on forever.

I've said this before, but the first few seconds of "Drive My Car " (the "pickup") still frustrates me, and always will, because I can't work out the timing - can't tell where the "one" is. Something about the way those opening guitar/bass/drum parts interlock, the parts they play, I absolutely can't find the groove until Ringo's big cymbal crash just before they sing "Asked..."

I have the same problem with "I'm Looking Through You " but that one doesn't frustrate me so much, maybe because that one doesn't lead off the album. In other words, I know the album's already in progress. If that makes sense. (It doesn't, much.)

The part of Tell Me Why with the really high vocals; it's about a minute and thirty-five seconds into the song. That part always makes me cringe, and I always dread reaching that part of the song.

 

The line is "if there's anything i can do".

^ Thanks to a mod, I now know what the lyric is.

If you're lonely (or not!), you can talk to me. .....Hey! Are you a new member on this fine forum and don't know where to go to introduce yourself?
Well, you can do it here! Dig it?

That's my favourite part of it!

@Funny Paper I was sipping my tea and that ahdn_paul_06 made me chuckle. Good thing I didnt spill it. ahdn_paul_01

Doesn't throw me off anymore, obviously, but when I first read about Rain , I expected it to be a sad/slow song like Yesterday or Julia .

I was wrong.

But I love Rain now for what it's worth: one of my favourites.

I was listening to Abbey Road , and I noticed how She's So Heavy just ENDS, just like that. And then it goes into the must cheerier Here Comes The Sun . Not really a song fragment, but it definitely threw me off!

But a song FRAGMENT that throws me off is the ending of Glass Onion . It's just so creepy! If there were any sounds that randomly popped up in the middle of that, I would actually SCREAM!

Throws everyone off the first time! I think that was John's intention. a-hard-days-night-john-6

I first heard that song on vinyl and was just mesmerized by it and the sound growing around it and then suddenly, it stopped! Just ended along with the click of the turntable stopping and left complete silence. That moment threw me off, but in a really cool way! a-hard-days-night-john-1

That was just totally shocking the first time I heard it! I thought the record had jumped or something.

It is a different experience on digital though (whether CD or download), with HCTS coming in after it. On vinyl I think it's much more of a WTF! moment.

A great example of John's genius, just cut the tape!

For me, it's the song that comes just after that tape cuts out. Such a beautiful song right after long, hard I Want You. It goes silent for a moment or two, then you hear, just faintly, tiny little sounds of acoustic guitars... and then George comes in. That song couldn't be placed anywhere else than here. Magnificient.
