ok, track by track i'm, pretty on page with what you've said...
A Hard Day’s Night - Johns ‘Ungh’ when he comes back in.
my favorite . .
because it's superimposed with paul's 'yeah' after he sings the middle part (holding me tight, tight) . . kind of passes off the vocals to john like a relay baton
maybe my favorite moment on any beatles record !i should have known better
- i dont like the high harmonica mix... i think the main note in the chorus is held too long.... but i love the melody on "and when i tell you that i love youuu etc..." so im 50/50
3. If I Fell - 1:44 Paul laughs and loses it. George Martin should have redone that part.
couldn't disagree with you more. without a doubt the best part of the song.
this song is so beautiful . . everyone who hears it is moved by the melody and impressed by the harmony . . and somehow it never made it into the cannon of beatles classics like the songs on the red and blue compilations... hmm
maybe it's skilled but corny. i guess that's why paul cracked uphappy just to dance with you
the backing vocals are like two big brothers helping their little brother
to me the accents and rhythm 'hits' in this song are what make it goodand i love her
- instant classic. probably one of the best 5 songs paul ever wrote.
actually can stand with songs like fur elise and greensleeves - the kind of song they played for kings in olden times
6. Tell Me Why - Never dug this tune.
same here. for me it's because i don't care about whatever story john is trying to tell
someone cried... someone lied.... tell him what and he'll apologize . . someone's on bended knee... he really cant help it he's so in love
... so what exactly happened?.. better yet- who cares!can't buy me love
fun and forced. like a hired birthday clown that tells the kids they're having a good time. yippie paul. george's solo kept this from being your cheesiest song ever
luckily the last song on side A.... because i can't look you in the face after this fake hooplah. devoid of sincerity
side two anytime at all
is there a better song that contrasts the sounds of john and paul's voices
the instrumental break really builds up too
-i'll cry instead
clever pop song . . the beatles had so much music under their belts, it's no surprise
here we see the lennon bitter venom show itself amid the tears
'you better hide all the girls, im gonna break their hearts all around the world, yeah im gonna break em in 2... and show you what your lovin man can do'
that's real fire ^
and leading up to that . .
"dont wanna cry when there's people there, i get shy when they start to stare, gonna lock myself away"
tough exterior and vulnerable inside of the teenage protaganist -> john lennon was an awesome introspective lyricist long before 'help'things we said today
ahead of it's time. 10 out of 10when i get home
awesome song. one of my favorites
crazy harmonies in the build up . . what is that soul satisfying chord interval? - whooaaa iiiiiiiiii - - as the drums get louder then release -> that makes my adrenaline rush !
to have lyrics that are delivered so 'from the gut' -> but also include the word 'trivialities'......
could elvis even define or spell that word?
-you cant do that
a direct order in the lyrics! with music that bolsters the command
wow, this smart rough sensitive talented singer really sounds like a jerk
would paul even have the backbone to boss his woman around like this?.... or maybe paul's just not as insecure
either way.... with the couplet of greeen and seeen.... john's wordsmithery continues to emerge
and awesome guitarsi'll be back
so much going on here. almost like a troubadour song from days of old
great harmonies, lyrics and middle part.... not the most memorable melody regardless. i always 'forget how it goes'
album highlights -> title track cant miss. and i love her / things we said today -> paul delivers. glimpses of john's creative intelligence straining to emerge in the pop format
