unlike a lot of other 'classic' bands, i never find myself going on a beatles kick these days



same, until i threw on revolver after seeing the thread title and remembered how much it rules

tomorrow i will go back to feeling tired when i hear "the beatles"

I'm not a big fan of the record overall, but the chicken cluck turning into the guitar on the reprise of the title track is one of its best moments

I still listen to these records every 6 months or so, but help! is probably my favourite beatles record. obviously these are still great albums but i always felt revolver was a little overrated

The acoustic guitar throughout Help is just stunning, it sounds completely modern

it’s not my favorite but rubber soul just has this cool emotional character to it that’s like simultaneously tender and warm but also sexy and mysterious. it’s the most romantic intimate sounding beatles album (to me at least)

I’ve never listened to the US Rubber Soul, but I know a Beatles fanatic who claims it as his favorite album

also the guitar solo on good morning absolutely rips

Re: "And Your Bird Can Sing," let's all just memorize this factoid, which I don't think I've come across before:

In the 2007 book Can't Buy Me Love, Jonathan Gould makes the case that the song was inspired by a profile of Frank Sinatra by Gay Talese that appeared in the April 1966 issue of Esquire magazine. "Bird," Talese wrote, "is a favorite Sinatra word. He often inquires of his cronies, 'How's your bird?'"

What brought the article to Lennon's attention was a press release sent by Sinatra's PR man that read: "If you happen to be tired of kid singers wearing mops of hair thick enough to hide a crate of melons... 'Tell me that you've heard every sound there is,' crooned the world's greatest kid singer in his enigmatic reply, 'and your bird can swing. But you can't hear me. You can't hear me.'"

The original 1966 article, titled "Frank Sinatra Has a Cold," can be read in Gay Talese's 2003 collection titled The Gay Talese Reader: Portraits and Encounters.

about a year ago i became obsessed with the whole record for essentially this reason. "you've got to hide your love away" might be a top 5 Beatles song for me now, as a result.

it's funny, as i get a bit older i find i have way more appetite for Beatles stuff in like killer garage band/acoustic-based country standard aping mode than a lot of the studio fuckery that everyone gets into as a teen.
if there's a part of their legacy that remains underrated, id hazard that it'd be those modes actually.

Rubber Soul does rule and it would be perfect if it wasn't for the horrible domestic abuse closing track.
