You know how every now and then you 'rediscover' a certain Beatles song after gearing it for years and never really appreciating it?
Have just done it with Day Tripper! I was on the treadmill the other day, listening to my ipod mix - heaps of beatles and other top rock songs - when DT came on. I'd never realised it had all these crunchy guitars going in the background - on the old records and radio you only hear the classic riff.
God, even though the lads were exhausted when they recorded this - and the vocals still sound weary - and trying to finish Rubber Soul in a ridiculously hectic schedule, the sheer energy is captured perfectly. No wonder Jimi Hendrix loved it and did his own version.
I rediscovered Penny Lane like this back in 1995. Came home drunk and put the Blue album on. Lay on the floor and pounded PL 15 more times in a row!!!
I wonder what the next Beatle song will be that I rediscover? Anyone else have similiar stories and songs?
