This song gives me the creeps. I hate it. How do the others like it?
I actually like it. I agree that it's unsettling but for once that quality doesn't bother me. I guess to me it represents a sealing of the deal that was hinted at earlier in Revolver and in Rubber Soul as well; that The Beatles! (spoken with a scream afterwards) had been replaced by The Beatles
(spoken with reverence). Not that there was anything wrong with the yeah, yeah, yeah Beatles. But they were gone and I always imagine the looks on the faces of the fans who didn't see it coming but knew it when the song ended. My sister's album collection ended with Rubber Soul and I suspect that she had heard Revolver at a friend's house. I remember her referring to that time period as "after The Beatles got weird". For my brother, though, that's when things took off. Amazing what an age difference of 5 years and not being a girl made!
