1. The way you can kind of hear John opening his mouth before the second verse of "All You Need Is Love."
2. All the string instruments in "All You Need Is Love."
3. The drums right before "Free As A Bird."
4. The way George counts "one, two" before beginning the last verse of "Within You, Without You."

The "surprise" ending on Strawberry Fields, especially what sounds like a moaning voice.

I'm stating this as a "little thing", but it's actually quite "big" in the grand scheme...

The way Paul opens his bass line for "I'm Only Sleeping" with static, single notes for the very first verse.... and then approaches every verse after that with climbing and ascending bass runs. You have to listen closely... maybe with the right speaker turned off... but you'll hear what I am talking about.

It's sheer brilliance. He knew enough to not make the very start of the song too busy—allowing for John's opening lyrics and acoustic guitar to set the tone of the song... and then he transitions to a more "active" bass line.

It's what made/makes him the best bass player in rock history.

On "You Won't See Me"... I love the solitary, unbroken horn "A" note that is introduced into the mix, starting on the last verse, and carries all the way through to the fade-out.

Speaking of "I'm Only Sleeping" ...

I think it's funny that the lyric says "float upstream" ... I mean, how do you float UPstream?

And contrast that to "turn off your mind and float downstream".

Well, you know that John.... always going against the grain!

... you forgot to "relax" before you floated downstream.

George's subtle volume pedal work on "Eight Days A Week"...

Specifically, during the "Hold me, love me....", and "... I Luh-uh-uh-uh-ove you..." sections.

I like the ending of "You Can't Do That" how it slows down.

Yeah... and along those same lines - but on the opposite side - I like how the tempo picks up towards the end of "Thank You Girl".

Not sure if it's a perceived speed-up, or if it's actually sped-up... but the final 20 seconds or so sound like they all got an adrenaline rush.

I think this is my favorite thread ever. Reading all these lists always brightens my day.

I thought of another favorite thing the other night: Paul's pronunciation of every single vowel in the line "but tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun" just makes me giddy.

1. The handclaps in Ticket To Ride
2. Paul's piano-playing in I Want To Tell You
3. The squeaky guitar in Blackbird
4. The tambourine and harmonizer in We Can Work It Out
5. The beginning of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, with the cymbols and sharp guitar—it always makes me shiver
6. The drum beat in Come Together

I fully agree. The piano is kind of haunting, really, and the part right after the bridge...

The background of Indian instruments in WY,WY kind of sounds like insects buzzing—but I love listening to it.

That's just what I was thinking! I never knew that could be achieved on an acoustic guitar, now if I get one I should try it out!

"Within You, Without You" make you want to meditate and/or dance...

I feel kind a feeling when I hear this song... Of course, what George sings will make me feel dizzy...

They used to want to boost the signal up on acoustic guitars to the point where they'd drive the engineers batty. I remember reading that somewhere (in "Recording Sessions"?).

The cool guitar chord that plays from 3:53 to 3:54 in WMGGW.
