Magical Moments
« on: January 31, 2005, 12:23:42 PM »

Talking about the trumpets on Loves Forever Changes got me thinking about those moments in songs that really get you, the bits you listen out for no matter how much you've heard the song.
For me, Beatlewise, its:
-the Blisters on my fingers ending of Helter Skelter. Unforgettable.
-going into the 3rd verse of A Day in the Life, after the 1st big "thingy"
-when the guitars crash in on the main part of Band on the Run
-the 1st na na nas on Hey jude

I really like the emphasis, almost highlighting the comfortbale situation being a Beatle affords.

i love the beginning guitar on heart full of soul by the yardbirds and the guitar work in you really got me now by the kinks.

distorted guitar is so appealing to me. guess that's why j beck is my favorite guitarist.

for me
of course the first NA NA's on hey jude


Tomrow never knows when john says " turn off your mind and float downstream"

taxman- 1... 2 ..3 ..4 when they count at the beginging

In my life : when john starts out with perfect words "there are places i remember" and also the little piano solo

It wont be long- the very beginging when john screams "it wont be long ya!"

Dear prudence- how it has that little noise from back in the ussr and goes to that beatifull guitar

2:58 minutes into Hey Jude you can hear John say, "wrong chord... f*cking hell"

And another one of my favorite song moments:
One, Two, Three, FAW!

yeh you can hear john say that...its actually pretty pretty obvious, but you dont notice it at first.

apparantley, when john was playing, he struck a wrong chord and 'said f***ing hell', right before paul goes into 'naa naa naa nahnanaanah'.
