Indeed. Tomorrow Never Knows was a statement - especially with it ending the album. It was showing where they were as a band, and what was to come. To me it's a perfect storm of lyrics and atmosphere.

I agree, BeatleFan.  It pointed right to Sgt. Pepper's!

Lyrical and musical, Kelley.  the bridges to both songs are nearly identical.

I was starting to hear it but I'm gonna have to try again tomorrow (never knows).

And I still think that The Beatles got the seagulls idea from The Shangri-Las.  :)

Paul would probably go right along with you on that.  ;)

Right.  And Dr. Robert had a lot to do with this too...

Yep. However I still prefer Rubber Soul to Revolver. I think it's the folk element that connects with me. The whole album is so full of life and energy, but with an underlying sense of poignancy. Norwegian Wood and In My Life especially.

I think Tomorrow Never Knows is a real masterpiece and it's incredible when you think what a massive leap The Beatles made when they recorded it as the first track they worked on for Revolver. I'm surprised some aren't keen on it as I could listen to it on a loop. I'm pretty sure the "seagull" sounds aren't real seagulls. I know Geoff Emerick mentioned Paul added some altered sounds of wine glasses ringing but not sure which these are.

Exactly that. To think it was the FIRST song they recorded for Revolver.

Those Beatoons videos certainly are clever.
