Hello reader! I know you're out there, and there are quite a few of you! Thank you so much! I'm having such a good time with this blog, and I'm so excited that so many of you enjoy reading.
Everyday I think of more and more things to write about, so I won't be going anywhere. As this blog is so aptly named, "there's always more to hear" and I don't see my interest in good music going anywhere.
SO, because I want to hear from you: Here's a question:
What is your favorite Beatles song and why? Do share. Please leave your answer as a comment. I know this question is VERY hard to answer, but give it your best go. Just pick one.
If I had to chose (and this choice might change tomorrow depending on my mood), I would say my favorite is "Tomorrow Never Knows," the last track on Revolver. Whenever I hear it, I sort of celebrate a little.
Why? The lyrics are awesome. They are so indicative of the late 60s and The Beatles' humanitarian pacifism:
Turn off your mind,Relax and float down stream
That love is allAnd love is everyone
I love the sitar and the use of that seagull like sound which I believe to be a recording of Paul laughing played backwards at various speeds. I also think Ringo plays one of the phattest drum beats he ever laid down. I also remember reading somewhere that John told producer George Martin that he wanted to sound like the Dali Lama singing from a mountain top. And George's backwards guitar solo? How cool!
