It goes without saying that 'R9' isn't very musical in the traditional sense, and perhaps it shouldn't have been included in a Beatles album. But it was included and I like that choice, personally. When you look at the overall diversity of styles on that album it just makes its inclusion a further widening that really couldn't go much farther. I don't know what John has said about it, but I think of it as a response to certain 'experimental' things going on at the time by folks like Stockhausen and Cage. Again, on a Beatles album? Well, why not? They were always pioneers of sorts.

Trippy factor? Trippy is as trippy does. It did me fine.

Quote from: 366
Tomorrow Never Knows is a song about meditation. It was adapted from 'The Tibetan Book of the Dead' By an acid tripping Lennon.

George says in the anthology that he wasn't sure if John knew he was singing about meditation when he recorded the song.

It wasn't adapted from the Tibetan Book of the Dead.  It was inspired by Timothy Leary's book "The Psychedelic Experience" which was based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead.

I would choose 'Other' and say "You Know My Name Look Up the Number". They definitely had to be taking something while making that song.

I chose Tommorow Never Knows but Rain would be a close 2nd.

^^^^^I agree with you on that!!!  That's my choice..........."Tomorrow Never Knows" is excellent head music and "Rain" is definitely the icing on the cake.  Thumbs up!!!!

I voted Lucy.  

Someone pretty much nailed it with one of the lyrics ... my favorite line is "Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers that grow so incredibly high"

Partly the warmth of people smiling at me, the flowers, and the way John delivers it.  Put it on and listen!  

Love, wal

Has to be Tomorrow Never Knows for me.  The lyrics are the trippiest I have ever heard, not to mention the music is otherworldy.
