@saw her standing - was this one of the first rock songs with the bass taking such a driving role?
@misery - enjoyable to me mostly because of john's vocal and what's common knowledge now about his life and childhood - also the falsetto near the end
@anna - come on man - -this song creeeeps up on you so cool and sly. ringo is super syncopated
@ask me why - see, those woo woo woos are what i like -> they have this album showing diverse roots and influences. this is kind of like a showtune to be honest
@please please me - yeah, the tone of voice on john's later 'come on's make the song intelligent
@love me do/andywhite.... disagree - i think they had just played/practiced it more times by the andy white take
@psiloveyou - this song is everything i like about the beatles. it's like an old time song.. a bassonova,,, a gleeclub singalong... it's like nothing else, when pauls sings "you know i want you to" in a high voice at 1:27 . . . it's his musicality in a nutshell
@babyit'syou - the bbc version is a far better vocal take in my opinion. check it out
@do you want to kno a secret - i think this song lyrically carved a niche for george female fans and depicted him 'shy guy'..... when he sings 'for a week or two'... it's abstactly atonal.
@taste of honey - sounds tongue in cheek to me ala mr.moonlight
@there's a place - weird harmonies on one part . . introspective lyrics for such an early song .... and..... i think the beau brummels stole the sound of this song for 'laugh laugh' . . . . and 'in my room' by the beach boys was influenced by it as well
@twist and shout
call the priest, build the casket, dig the hole...... all competition is officially dead !
my only criticism of your posts thusfar is that some of the things you don't like can be attributed to the times, the music industry, recording conditions, the state of rock when it came out etc
but hey -> at the end of the days it's all about the ears!!
