I really hope they attach it to The Medley.

    that would probably not happen, but I hope they do not attach it to the medley because it was never supposed to be attached to it.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE "Her Majesty"!!! I had to have a bellyful of wine just to post this in the thread.

    ......and it DOESNT belong in the medley.

    It was never in The Medley. The Medley ends at The End. Her Majesty is put at the very end of the album

    Never? Not exactly...read on:
    "Her Majesty", tacked on the end, was originally part of the side two medley, appearing between "Mean Mr. Mustard" and "Polythene Pam". McCartney disliked the way the medley sounded when it included "Her Majesty", so he had the medley re-edited to remove it. However, second engineer John Kurlander had been instructed never to throw out anything, so after the group left the recording studio that day, he picked it up off the floor, spliced 14 seconds of red leader tape onto the final mix reel, and then spliced in "Her Majesty" immediately after the leader tape.

    The box of the album's master reel had a notation stating to leave "Her Majesty" off the final product, but the next day when Malcolm Davies at Apple received the tape, he (also trained not to throw anything away) cut a playback lacquer of the whole sequence, including "Her Majesty". The Beatles liked this effect and left it on the album. On the first printing of the LP cover, "Her Majesty" is not listed, although it is shown on the record label.

    "Her Majesty" opens with the final, crashing chord of "Mean Mr. Mustard", while the final note of "Her Majesty" remained buried in the mix of "Polythene Pam". This was the result of "Her Majesty" being snipped off the reel during a rough mix of the medley. The cut in the medley was subsequently disguised with further mixing although "Her Majesty" was not touched again and still appears in its rough mix.
    But yeah, it's not part of the Medley now and should not be part of the Medley track we can get in TB:RB.

    I have a feeling that they're gonna chart the vocals and make it the most difficult song in the game.

    Davidshek, thanks for posting that cool bit of info: I can't believe that in all my decades of listening to the Beatles, I never realized Her Majesty starts with Mustard's final chord!

    I think it will have a very quick loading time since it's such a short song. I also do not want it tacked onto the end of the Medley, and according to the PR it will not be.

    Thank God too! Mean Mr. Mustard segueing into Polythene Pam is my favorite part! It's perfect :)

    I don't know, this game loads fast... almost too fast, I no longer have time to take a quick swig of beer and/or b-hit during load times.

    The game is not the only one getting loaded ; )

    True. I'll load up the game and play guitar.

    I'll play through the medley (as it is intended). Then, I'll play it the way it could have been, with "Her Majesty" between "Mean Mr. Mustard" and "Polythene Pam" in a created set list.

    I was planning to do the same thing.

    So, I wonder if "Her Majesty" was meant to be a little ditty sung by Mean Mr. Mustard, since it would have come right after the "Takes him out to look at the queen" verse. Kind of cool, actually. But, I agree that the final Mustard/Pam pairing is the medley's best moment.

    I was listening to Her Majesty today and thought: this drum chart is going to be easy!!! Will it be just one cymbal crash? Is there bass in that opening note too?

    Hmmm....

    Will it be so short it's almost impossible to get the required points to gold star?

    I think there should be some studio chatter after "The End." For about 30 seconds, and then "Her Majesty" ought to start ...

    Maybe it'll be the Travis Barker remix?

    Similar to Sargent Pepper's inner grove, Wonder if that will be tacked on to Day in the Life?

    NO!! I really wanted Her Majesty to be after the Medley, I really hope they leave it after it.
