Don’t you think it’s its perfect complement? For me they’re still part of the same song…

We have a thread for that: Where Does "Cry Baby Cry" End?  

I meant the emotional effect of the juxtaposition, not the juxtaposition itself a-hard-days-night-john-6 That is indeed a topic for another thread. It works very well.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

@ewe2 @Ahhh Girl 

I think –IMHO– that the reason it works so well is because Cry Baby Cry is an open-ended song, its melody leaves us hanging, waiting for more. And Can You Take Me Back, though totally different, is the perfect ending. And it’s a topic for this thread: it’s another surprising Beatle musical moment.

I agree @Oudis it is surprising, again it's the "random" they really liked (and Ian MacDonald so disliked) as a technique. But for a different surprise, who else only began listening closely to the backing of Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da after hearing the giggled "ring"?

McCartney played Ob La Di at his concert last week, and one of his bandmates very specifically sang the "ring" - I think maybe the drummer, Abe Laboriel, or Brian Ray.

I got a kick out of that.
