After looking at Part One of The Beatles (aka The White Album), it’s time for Part Two!
Important note: the “Revolution 1” that appears here is only representative of the slower paced version on the White Album; the B-side version on “Hey Jude” will appear separately, as they’re surprisingly different songs.
As I mentioned in the previous poll, since the volume of work on The White Album is enough for two seperate albums, I’ve decided to split it in half. That way, no song is overlooked.
Fun fact: “Helter Skelter” was written primarily by Paul McCartney in response to two things: one, he read a very positive review of The Who song “I Can See for Miles” that talked about how loud and edgy it was. Paul read this, regretted not writing it first, heard the song afterwards, and found that the actual song was pretty non-crazy. Taking the mental image of the song he imagined when reading the article, “Helter Skelter” was produced. It was also written in an “I’ll show them” spirit in response to all the critics who said all Paul could write were acoustic ballads.
So - let’s vote!
