Pretty good read.

"The sitar-like result, to be notably reused in Lennon’s equally mind-bending “Tomorrow Never Knows”, was achieved the hard way: by recording the part normally, then playing it backwards and writing out the notation, then recording the notation only to play it backwards one final time and creating a mystifyingly harmonious string of notes..."

    Good article (Although I thought the "swinging from a rope" was the engineers idea after the recording, not from Lennon before it)

    Nice to see some love for "She's Leaving Home" too !

    Great read, too much from Revolver and Rubber Soul

    Dissed Im a Loser though, i think the lyrics (My tears are falling like tears from the sky, is it for her or myself do i cry) are very good.

    No Baby your a rich man or Everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey though :(

    Well, that's because those songs just happen to fit that criteria. It makes sense, as they are about as critically acclaimed as the other big boys, yet aren't quite as popular. Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road are much more popular, therefore have less of these "hidden gems".

    Had two of my favorite songs on that list, Here, There, and Everywhere and You Won't See Me.

    Wow, they had a few that are some of my most favorite songs, Hey Bulldog and You Won't See Me. I wonder why some of these didn't get so much appreciation during their days, they surely were up to par with any other Beatle hits.

    They included "And Your Bird Can Sing" and "It's All Too Much," so I'm happy. Fun article.
