This is for the members with vivid imaginations.

At 0.47 in Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, the audience laugh. But what are they laughing at?

John making funny faces is my answer. Best I can do LOL

The Beatles are English - They have influences from all over - but they are English

This is something I’ve thought about since I was a kid. Here is how my mind works (tread carefully!).

Since the laughter occurs during a “brass band solo”, I’ve always imagined the audience laughing at some type of musical dance move the brass players were executing. You may have seen footage of old brass bands lined up and bobbing up and down in some type of synchronous pattern while playing. As a matter of fact, when I watch reruns of the old Dick Van Dyke Show, this scene always makes me think of that. Just the part at 1:59. The entire scene is pure corn, but as I warned you earlier…this is how my mind works.

The following people thank Zig for this post:


To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.
