Yes, I think so.

It's pretty funky, Paul's bass is awesome, Ringo's work predicted psychedelic drumming, John's voice during the bridges is at top form, and the harmonium gives an orgasmic ending. The song was also kinda prophetic, announcing the Summer of Love two years before.

Surely the Beatles didn't mean this, but the lyrics always remind me to the Bible: "the word is the light; the word is the way; the word is love." You know, Jesus is the Word (John 1:1).

Interesting. I sometimes think We Can Work It Out as like a conversation bettween God and me.


--- Quote ---my only quibble with it is its a kind of 12 Bar Blues with added bridges that John sings so not musically that adventurous.......

Hi nimrod. Perhaps John was doing this on purpose to give the bridges a slightly talking/preaching kind of feel? He certainly seemed to be in a bit of a preaching mood during Rubber evidenced here, beginning at the 4:16 mark  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
