Thanks!  :)

I knew it had to be a song I knew, I just couldn't think of the initials of it *blush*.

^ Ee... I'm off-topic here but I thought I'd ask: Mandy, you are both MandyBug and MandyBuglet aren't you?
I thought these were two different people, oops :B

Yeah, I'm both....I got on Ubuntu yesterday and for some reason the site wouldn't take my password, so I did a "forgot password" and they sent me a new one.

If I could, I'd just like to have the one account, though.

"in summer" from Penny Lane.  Something about the grit in the voice and the way it climbs, to bring you back round to the main melody.

The third chorus of "Lucy," where John comes in on the first line.  And the line "that grow so incredibly highhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh."  

In "You Can't Do That," "everybody's GREEEEEEEEEEN" -- great harmony.

The plunking acoustic that opens "Yesterday."  I also like how the Martins ran Blackbird into the front of it.  Nicely, nicely.

I could name a dozen instances where Paul does a bass run.  How each of them filled a given space and then got back out of the way for a vocal or another instrument shows a natural ability no one ever will match, to my mind.

GREAT thread.

yeah that part of 'Penny Lane' is special and the next bit, 'meanwhile back', the bass part is great.

I also like the part of 'You Never Give Me Your Money', just before the 'one sweet dream' lyric. Ringo's drums sound cool and they are all tuned into each other.

I guess this is pretty trivial **blush**, but in "I'll Get You", John changes his melody from the first part of the verse to the 2nd so that it fits with Paul's really unusual harmony note perfectly.

"Imagine I'm in love with you ..."

" ... 'cause I've imagined I'm in love with you"

He sings a B on the 1st one, but a C# on the second one, which fits oh so much nicer with Paul's E harmony note. It took me a lot of listens to realize this ... at first listen (or 10) it seems like John is singing the B in both parts.

Brilliant!

i suppose this should be in the solo forums,but when paul belts out'...maybe you're the only woman who could ever help me'in "maybe i'm amazed",but then he sings the '....baby won't you help me understand' bit so softly and meaningfully.absolute genius,i must have heard it 10,000 times and i still get goosebumps.

Nothing they did is trivial, alexis.  ;-)

How about the four-note piano run leading into the "Baby You're A Rich Man" chorus?

(Hope I'm not breaking some unwritten rule (like Doug Dimsdale) by quoting a post that's not the most recent ....)

Penny Lane, from the screaming Paul in your avatar to the magic moments you've posted, I think you and ah share a LOT about what makes the Beatles special - maybe we are twins separated at birth!

Anyway, some of the most magical moments to me are Paul's screams, or even his 'bout-to-scream-type vocals. In no special order:

1) Clarabella!
2) Oooh My Soul
3) Kansas Stadt
4) Long Tall Sally
5) I'm not the biggest fan of Can't Buy Me Love, but his scream just before the guitar solo is OOOOOOOHHHH SOOOOOOO GOOOOOODDDDD!!!
6) I'm Down
7) Lucille (The whole friggin song is like on GIGANTIC scream, OMG!!)

8) I also love John's screams, it's amazing but when they screamed together it seemed like they did THAT in harmony also, John on the bottom and Paul on the top, like in Hard Day's Night - incredible!
9) John's scream on "Slow Down"
10) I'll have to think of more John's screams, but I think they are not any worse than Paul's (when John was in his prime, like '62 through '64).

Just my 2c!

[Edit: Hey, I wonder why I'm not able to quote Penny Lane's epic awesome thread from the last page ... ??? It's not like I'm trying to nail someone's head to a table, which would be cruel, if not fair ...]

if i fell
when paul's voice cracks the second time he sings 'was in VAIN' and you can hear him  try not to laugh

a hard days night
when paul passes the song back to john from the middle eight "...feeling you holding me tight, tight YEAH" and john sings "AWWW its been a hard days . . . . "
the way pauls "YEAH" and john's "AWWW" overlap.

Oh I have a lot...

-The blackbird sounds on Blackbird
-The crescendo's and the "ahhhhhhhs" in A Day in the Life
-The opening of Hey Bulldog
-The scream right before the guitar solo in Can't Buy Me Love
-The chorus in I've Got A Feeling where Paul and John are singing their respective parts
-The tripple guitar solo in The End
-Vocal bass in I Will :)
-I don't know why, but the way "at all" is sung in this song makes me smile
-The rockin' vocal part in Oh! Darling
-one, two, three, FAHR!
-Again, not sure why but the first time in Lovely Rita when Paul goes, "Lovely Rita, meet a maid" makes me smile
-The backwards guitar in I'm Only Sleeping, chills
-The end of Hello Goodbye
-The bassline in Lady Madonna
-"I don't know, I don't knoooooooooooow" in Something
-The guitar in Dear Prudence from 3:20 to 3:30
 Oh I could go on...

I have had Rubber Soul on repeat in my car this week and I totally agree about that harmony in Wait - fantastic.

One of my favourite Beatles bits is the guitar solo of Nowhere Man, and especially the sound of the guitar when at the start of each phrase it plays a few notes together rather than just one single note.
Also the instrumental break in the middle of Day Tripper - that whole crescendo thing is fantastic.
John's vocal on Twist and Shout - incredible from start to finish.
The introduction of It's All Too Much.
The intro bit of the Hollywood Bowl LP - "And now, here they are, The Beatles!" and the screams start. In fact, the whole LP is amazing. What I wouldn't give to have been there that night!
I could go on and on and on  ;D

"Across the Universe" is all magical for me but especially:
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box they
Tumble blindly as they make their way
Across the universe

That's just how my mind feels sometimes.

Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns, it calls me on and on
Across the universe

And that's what keeps me going through tough times.

So I was listening to the Beatles today and I realized there are a bunch of small moments in their songs that are so unique and really just make the Beatles so freakin fabulous. I'll start off, please add your own!!

1. The way George says "things" in I Want to Tell You
2. The absolute DIRTY guitar riffaage in the chorus of Sgt. Pepper's
3. When Paul "notches it up a skosh" on the word "knew" in SCITTBW ( I always end up having to rewind this part at least twice)

In my opinion, the Beatles are not only the greatest musical act of all time, but also mankind's crowning artistic achievement.
