After being released as a single and unsuccessfully firing a torpedo on Revolver . This pesky number continued it’s contamination of the ‘canon’ via it’s own movie, quasi album and self titled ‘period’ best of. Thoughts?
Unless Paul McCartney knocks on my door I am unlikely to be impressed.

I think YS is fine, both as its own thing and in the context of Revolver overall. And I’m a big fan of the film as well, even though the soundtrack album (as released) isn’t really part of my personal canon.

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!"

It’s definitely what you’d call a “virus that got out of control” although i do enjoy the song and everything that came from it.
Then, they reached out to UA to create an animated film to complete so they could complete their 3 song contract without actually having to do much (there’s debate over whether or not this actually fulfilled their contract).
With a film comes a soundtrack and since Yellow Submarine is the name of the film, it had to be included on the soundtrack, which also contained the 5 songs included in the UK print of the film that had yet to be released on a UK album, and George Martin’s orchestral score.
30 years later, they decide to restore the film and issue a new soundtrack but this time, replacing the score with every song included in the film except for A Day In The Life .
