Song Of The week - And Your Bird Can Sing

<< < (10/12) > >>

What an absolutely fabulous song and one of the highlights of the Anthology series was the 'laughing' version of it.

Would have made a great 45.
Imagine if, around April 1966, if Parlophone had put out 'And Your Bird Can Sing' and 'Got To Get You Into My Life' as a double a-side.....
It would now be considered the greatest single of all time!

Dcazz:
I rate the guitar work on this right up there withe The End etc... 1966 was a good year for guitar!

To me this was one of their most exuberant songs post the Beatlemania period. Does anyone know whose idea the riff was? It made the song.

I was 16 in April 1966, oldbrownshoe.  I already had the Rubber Soul LP.  We were awaiting their next LP scheduled for release later in the year.  If The Beatles had released those two songs on a 45, I would have played them incessantly!

The harmonizing lead guitar parts were arranged and played by Paul and George on their Epiphone 230TD Casino guitars.
