oh my god. 

what was i THINKING when i made this list a year ago?

Paul or John playing piano on Lovely Rita ? Thats like assuming Strawberry Fields Forever is an Elvis song!

I'll just redo my list.

10. Run For Your Life : The lyrics are kinda bad, but they're not horrible. And the guitar is amazing.

9. A Day In The Life : Who doesn't love this song?

8. Old Brown Shoe : The bass slaps! I couldn't play that even if I tried!

7. Every little thing: By far the best song on Beatles For Sale . It's an underrated gem!

6. Within You Without You : Beautiful George song ahdn_george_06. I also wanted to include Love You To and The Inner Light , but they're a bit too similar to each other. I picked my favorite of the Indian trilogy, which is this song.

5. Here There And Everywhere : God , this song is beautiful. I remember buying revolver on vinyl for the first time, putting the needle on the record, and hearing this. And the first four songs already did things to my mind, but this one slowed everything down. I feel so at peace listening to it.

4. For You Blue : I'm a huge fan of that slide guitar. It just rocks! I feel very happy listening to this song, and it always puts me in a good mood.

3. Happiness Is A Warm Gun : I love this song. Like, a lot. The best part is the guitar solo. And the song has 4 different parts! I love songs like that, although @The Hole Got Fixed may disagree on that statement.

2. Strawberry Fields Forever : This is a trip. Like, this song is absolutely nuts! I love it, and I'm pretty sure everyone else does as well.

1. Hold Me Tight /Kansas City /What goes on/Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

Just kidding ahdn_john_08_gif

The actual number 1 is...

1. I Am The Walrus : Perfect. Just perfect.

Presumably Magill means "heavy" as in "...metal", not lyrical depth. The semi-distorted "chugging" rhythm guitar in "Hold Me Tight " is a step forward from the traditionally twangier tones of the debut.

(At least, that's what I think is meant - don't wanna put words in your mouth, Magill/Lil/Nancy...apple01)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney

That is sort of what i meant. The lyrics are mediocre though.

"Don't know what it means to hold you tight" is the worst lyric of all.

I'd rather you were honest and post what you want than suggest you are editing posts for my or anyone else’s liking. Some folk around here really like ‘Hold Me Tight ’, but then there are people in the world who put mustard on cornflakes so it's hardly saying much of a positive stance.

Yeah, but, to come to think of it, Hold Me Tight really isnt that good.

Cool. Nice to see another join my side of the garden. It is a truly good-awful piece of crap to the point where it's possibly the only Beatles track I have nothing positive to say about it. Everything is simply utter crap.
