Last ever Beatles thread ever, I promise - your lawyers can phone my lawyers if anything otherwise happens.
I was gonna start a thread about which Beatles tunes should have gotten more airplay/recognition/acknowledgment but figured I’d search it first and came across an old thread about “most underrated” Beatles tunes, which I think is even more subjective than mine, which could possibly (if it got nerdy enough) delve into empirical data like various top of the charts mags/papers, while in the “underrated” thread, there was too much semantics in trying to define “underrated”, itself.
ok there’s a run-on sentence.
Anyhooos, I submit “Hey Bulldog”.
Other than showing up in the “Yellow Submarine” film and soundtrack, I heard it maybe twice on the radio, growing up.
Recorded a day or two before heading off for the India thing, I can’t think of a funkier stone groove they laid down. George’s solo here is one of my favourites - totally classy, jaunty, full of piss and vinegar.
Lennon’s “quiet, QUIET” at Paul was…aaaa whatever.
Too bad stations/people didn’t get into it enough so I could durned-well hear it more often!
There used to be an awesome youtube video (had tons of hits) but alas it went the way a lot of those videos do.
