Technically "Within You, Without You" should be Hestons favourite on the album.

After all he loves super noodles.

Wikipedia says "When I'm Sixty-Four" was one of the first songs Paul ever wrote—when he was 16. Think about that. You're 16 years old, an aspiring rock n roll musician, and you write a song about being a senior citizen. Good lord but that man is fucking weird.
Wasn't it to please his father? Like a "write a standard" type thing?
I hope it was his grandfather.

Can I just say this album should definitely be heard in mono.

Wouldn't surprise me. I know that he took to his bandmates his dad's concern/recommendation that "yeah yeah yeah" should be replaced with "yes yes yes."

Ps. Isn't Magical Mystery Tour a compilation album as released in the States?
Yes. It’s the EP plus the singles of the era.
So a bit unfair to use in rankings etc?

Kind of surprised how hated WYWY is here given the general appreciation for something like Sandinista!. I like George's songs, but I also have a natural attraction to Indian music.
It is tuneless. I've heard it about 100 times and still couldn't hum it if you had a gun to my head.
Yeah. It’s not that it’s Indian music. It’s that it’s a forgettable outtake on any album.

It's crap and that's being kind.

I guess I think tunes are overrated if what you want is atmosphere, which I'm often in the mood for. I'd put it on par with ambient stuff maybe.

I agree with you in principle, tho not in this specific instance. As I said earlier, the sounds are appealing but the overall song is fairly meh.

YOUR OPINION, SIR, IS MEH

Nah you're fine

Still, I would have thought that even the quarter-song that is the theme reprise would go first.
