I agree. I am in a bit of a rush right now, but a couple of things come to mind:

1. John's raw, moving "Hey!"s on "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away."

2. Paul's countdowns. I have yet to count how many songs these appear on, but that has to be one of the most comforting sounds in the world to me.

Many more, will have to think on this!

I'm moving these posts to a thread we started several years ago called "Magical Moments."

The chorus on No Reply comes to mind for me when both Lennon and McCartney are tearing one out!

I always considered It's All Too Much as a somewhat messy recording. I was listening to a strange solo on the guitar from 2:00 minutes or so. And suddenly, clearing as a blue sky, at 2.30, there's a little brass section. Magical moment indeed.

The opening chord of I'm Only Sleeping is simply brilliant! The one on which John is singing 'When' (I wake up early in the morning).

Agreed, it always seemed like it drug a little bit, but i'm no guitar player.  The whole song is brilliant.

nice recovery pulling a great thread from the past.

Penny Lane - the trumpet solo, while not the beatles themselves, it actually makes me smile/cry every time.

Eleanor Rigby - don't remember which way but on the mono if  you swing headphones/speakers all the way left or right whenever the heavy strings come in you can exclude the vocals other than bleed in and the POWER of the strings is awesome.

There's lots to suggest. A few to start:

The intro to Ticket to Ride when the full band joins the intro guitar.

The guitar solo in Nowhere Man

Johns vocal in the middle eight of We Can Work it Out.

Off the top of my head:

The guitar intro and "Aaahhh..aaahhh" at the beginning of "Lovely Rita"

Paul's little "Poppa-dop-pom" in "I've Just Seen A Face"

The sound of the bus zooming across the speakers in "Magical Mystery Tour"

The little falsetto bit towards the end of "Tell Me Why" (what the hell ARE they singing there?)

The crystal clear little "ping!" at the end of the guitar solo in "Nowhere Man"

John's "BBBrrrr!" (as near as I can spell it!) in "Slow Down"

The ringing guitar intro to "If I Needed Someone"

The spangly guitar outro to "A Hard Day's Night" (Oh how I've often wished they'd based a fresh song around the sound of that wonderful fade out!!)

Paul's "Yeah?" reply to John's shout of "Big man!" in "Hey Bulldog"

That five note guitar lick just before the "Come On"s in "Please Please Me"

The avalanche of "Come on"s including a wonderfully goat-like "aaahhh Come On!" (John or George?) buried in the mix right at the fade out of "Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me & My Monkey"

The flute at the end of "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away"

The first moment Ringo's drums kick-in on "Strawberry Fields Forever"

Paul's emphasis "Every SINGLE day" in the fade out to the stereo version of "Got To Get You Into My Life" (was he dropping a hint?)

The bubble-blowing/kazoo duet in "Octopus's Garden"

John's thickly scouse "Kind of a Gairl that makes the News of the Wairld" line in "Polythene Pam"

and so many, many more besides......

The ringing guitar intro to "If I Needed Someone"


Only a Rickenbacker 360/12 played through a VOX AC30 amp can sound like that...

That's a fifth fret harmonic played on the high E-string.

George's outro was also played on his Rickenbacker 360/12...

Where would the 60s be without the Rickenbacker 360/12?  And it wasn't only The Beatles...

While the entire song is brilliant, I particularly love the bit in 'You Never Give Me Your Money' from Paul singing 'but oh that magic feeling' until the 'one sweet dream'. I love the music in between. The boys are tightly locked together as a unit momentarily again...ironically on their last album.  Wonderful....just wonderful

Any song where George played his Rickenbacker 360/12 is a magical moment for me...

Great clips HG. So many of George's pieces in those songs were simple but so effective.

Thanks, Moog.  But I have to correct my last post.  John played his Rickenbacker 325/12 on Every Little Thing.  It's a short-scale solid body guitar and its tone is a bit different than the 360/12...
