Title: Magical Mystery Tour- 3 Favorite Tracks
Post by: Flaming Pie in the Sky on May 28, 2007, 12:52:51 AM
Hey, we've got Sgt. Pepper and Revolver, so how about Magical Mystery Tour. It's a pretty good album, I think. Lots of creative songs.

My favorites:
1. I Am The Walrus
2. Hello Goodbye
3. Your Mother Should Know

Good but they should release a album of MMT period songs the second half of the '67 recordings. Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane sound more Pepper than MMT.

1. I Am The Walrus
2. The Fool On The Hill
3. Hello Goodbye

Something like this Remixed and Remastered with some new sounds from the sessions and maybe dialogue from the film. They could expand the film with the Promo's and newly edited material. This coud be the soundtrack.

- Side One-
1: Magical Mystery Tour
2: Your Mother Should Know
3: I Am The Walrus
4: The Fool On The Hill
5: Flying
6: Blue Jay Way

- Side Two-
7: Hello Goodbye
8: Baby You're A Rich Man
9: All Together Now
10: You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)
11: It's All Too Much
12: All You Need Is Love

As I've always thought of MMT as an EP rather than an album:

1. I Am The Walrus
2. Fool On The Hill
3. Blue Jay Way

I've fought this battle long and hard. MMT is no more a Beatle album than the US Hey Jude release. It's a greatest hits/MMT EP combo. Shouldn't be judged as a Beatle album. It was neither concieved or approved by them.

1. I Am The Walrus (no one has ever topped this!!)
2. The Fool On The Hill
3. Your Mother Should Know

I always struggle to call it an album as it was originally an EP, but
fantastic album!!

3. your mother should know

4. i am the walrus
5. penny lane
6. all you need is love


this one is so difficult... i love every single song on the album so much.... i can't really choose. those 6 are on top. and putting 1-3 on top would mean 4-6 are behind them... but they aren't. they're perfect. so difficult. one of my favourite albums/eps

Title: Re: Magical Mystery Tour- 3 Favorite Tracks
Post by: Andy Smith on July 02, 2007, 09:29:50 PM
Blue Jay Way is my least fav track on the album unfortunatly  :-/
I also thought it was a bit out of place on the MMT EP & i don't think
its one of George's best lyrics.  :-/
Title: Re: Magical Mystery Tour- 3 Favorite Tracks
Post by: Octie on July 08, 2007, 03:45:48 AM
I used to not like Blue Jay Way... but... now I actually do.

But the top three for me would be (no order):
Strawberry Fields Forever
Fool on the Hill
Hello Goodbye... or I Am The Walrus (argh, can't decide... I'll go for a tie  :))

And I also like Magical Mystery Tour (ie the song). And Flying makes me smile too... ;D

The Fool On The Hill
Your Mother Should Know
All You Need Is Love

All You Need kept popping up while my wife and I were planning our wedding, and I took her to see Love in Las Vegas as a honeymoon gift, so it became our "theme" and therefore holds a special place in my life.

Oh, and I can't decide if Strawberry Fields, Walrus or Blue Jay Way is #4.

I Am The Walrus
Strawberry Fields Forever
The Fool On The Hill
And the incomparable - All You Need Is Love!
Actually I love all the songs, and should say it`s impossible to choose the best three.
Title: Re: Magical Mystery Tour- 3 Favorite Tracks
Post by: on January 16, 2009, 05:51:10 PM
WHAT?? Has no one cited "Flying"??  ;)

My own three, in no particular order, would be "I Am the Walrus," "Strawberry Fields Forever," and "Hello Goodbye," with an honorable mention going to "Baby You're a Rich Man."

This will maybe be unpopular, but "The Fool on the Hill" might be my least favorite Beatles song ever...

Post by: Living One on February 27, 2009, 04:03:23 PM
1.  Strawberry Fields Forever
2.  The Fool on the Hill
3.  All You Need is Love

All these songs have a deep message that I can connect to, and they are enjoyable to listen to (like all Beatles music).

I sometimes feel like I'm the fool on the hill.

1.Fool On The Hill (wonderful melody, awesome lyrics ; my 3rd favourite Beatles song i think ... :o)
2.Strawberry Fields Forever (nothing to say....)
3.Hello Goodbye (love the ending!)

I never liked that much "Your Mother Should Know". Altough Paul's my favourite, I think that he can write better lyrics than this song's. But that's just my opinion.  ;D

All You Need is Love
I Am The Walrus
Strawberry Fields Forever

Same here! I like parts of it okay but other parts ruin it for me. I am good at turning the volume down just before but I still know they are there!

1. Hello Goodbye
2. Your Mother Should Know (It's playing as I type actually.)
3. Fool on the Hill

I'd agree with this one, apart from I'd have Walrus above Penny Lane in the first set of three.

I have been reading the Geoff Emerick book and have just got through the MMT section - sounded like a very strange time for the band, with Brian's death and Paul assuming control by pushing ahead with his film idea. Walrus was the first song they recorded after Brian's death - Emerick says that you can hear in their playing that their hearts aren't in it. Apparently Ringo - unusually for him - wasn't keeping the timing very well so Paul stopped playing bass on the backing track and just stood in front of Ringo with a tambourine to help him keep a regular beat going. And John insisted on playing the keyboard part even though he kept making mistakes with it. Must have been a very stressful session for everyone, I suppose. A great song that came out of it, though.

I think MMT is a terrific album in every sense of the word.  I never liked "Blue Jay Way" and yet ... it has a very cosmic vibe that has grown on me.

Even though I don't listen to it every time I have come to respect Blue Jay Way and how George crafted it. It really seems like your waiting all night for the song to end like he was waiting for Derek Taylor to arrive at the house he was renting.
I also like Baby Your a Rich Man.
I Am the Walrus is on top I think.
