the "concept albums" don't have a great replay value for me. i never get tired of rubber soul, let it be, and revolver though.

For me, the medley has always been a little bit overhyped. The parts are not greater than their sum. Or whatever. Golden Slumbers is probably my favourite part of it. McCartney's voice is incredibly powerful. It seems he was the one who tried to make the medley have some deeper meaning. Lennon's contributions are throwaway.

Actually, over the years I've mellowed on my love for this whole album. Still, half of it is great.

You Never Give Me Your Money is still my favourite song from it.

Apparently, Lennon was against the medley and it was Paul's pushing and insistence that made it happen.

I more or less agree with this except I'd probably swap Magical Mystery Tour and Let It Be. I can also sort of understand the argument for putting Revolver ahead of Abbey Road. I think Abbey Road is better as a complete album, but Revolver might have stronger individual songs on it. Can't go wrong with either one at the top though.

My daughter will be 2 months old tomorrow. Tonight I introduced her to the Beatles, as we shared a dance (me cradling her while I moved back and forth) to our vinyl copy of Rubber Soul, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of its release.

'In My Life' will never be the same. A moment I won't soon forget.

That tune holds a special place in my heart as well. Got to hear it beautifully performed 5-8 times a week on a tour 3 years ago. Made my eyes wet each time.

My oldest is six now and she listens to the Beatles lullabies on rock a bye baby or whatever it is when she goes to bed. The other she asked to hear the 'real' versions of Golden Slumbers and penny lane while we were in the car. I used to play the Beatles for her when she was a baby, but it was nice to hear her actually WANT to listen to those instead of kidz bop or whatever.

And when I put her to bed the other night she asked me to put on the dmb one and set it to American Baby. "I really like that tune." It was then I realized she isn't actually sleeping at night, just surfing the lullaby playlists

glad you're enjoying your little girl. There's nothing better.

And thanks for clarifying the bold for us. We would have thought she was dancing around on her own.

Happiness is a Warm Gun is legit incredible. Top 10 Beatles for me.

edit: looks like I posted almost exactly the same sentiment a few years ago. Either some cogs are slipping or the wheel's as round as ever, I dunno.

It took me a long time but I now like Within You Without You. The lyric is profound and the music makes me think that Harrison was really the one on the forefront of fusion music moreso than the others.

On a related note, the laughter at the end was what I was reminded of while listening to Radiohead's The Numbers, which features similar mirth that seemingly contrasts the seriousness of the lyrics.
