I'm with you. This is nothing to lose sleep over, and I don't mean to be argumentative. I simply can't think of anything very similar to this song on the scene prior to its release. People cite the intro or harmonies, but that's not stuff that is so unique to me. I say simplistically, it's the song itself.

Any offerings? Yes? No? Maybe so?

It already boggles my mind to see the scope of material that Lord Reith has brought together. I can't wait to dig in; I'm sure I'll be even more amazed.

This is a lovely song. Gorgeous melody and harmony.

 Probably the chord changes and melody are more complex than was standard for pop songs of the day

Sorry but that statement baffles me. What do you mean by "probably?" Or should it read "hopefully."
Don't we need to look at the chord changes of other pop songs of the day, agree on some measure of complexity and then make some comparisons? Or at least google it. Maybe it is more complex, I don't know.....but probably? Bad science my friend, bad science.
I mean this to be more light hearted than it sounds and no disrespect to anyone, but as Beatle fans we do  tend  to credit The Beatles with inventing the wheel.

"My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other's kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That's how I see business: Great things in business are never done by one person, they're done by a team of people."

- Steve Jobs

This is a lovely song. Gorgeous melody and harmony.

In terms of it's departure from songs of the day, I don't think there's anything too radical in itself. The beginning "recitative" wasn't uncommon in songwriting circles (and they'd used it in Do You Want to Know a Secret) but it wasn't common in pop songs of the era. Probably the chord changes and melody are more complex than was standard for pop songs of the day (again more akin to a Porter than a Holly). It's a very sophisticated piece, beautifully structured, which they made sound deceptively simple. Another great Beatle hallmark.

Again, Cor, many, many thanks!

You're welcome. But all I did was a matter of copy-paste. It was a member called Lord Reith on the forum of bootlegzone that posted all this incredible stuff. It was his intention to spread the thing and that's what I did.

I had the pleasure of seeing him live in a small club in Columbia, MO, back in 1991.


That's neat Kathy!


I absolutely love the intro to this...
