Always thought this song was a little dumb, but you're right, that's pretty sweet bass.

One of the most unappreciated Beatles tunes ever! On my top ten! And the clear No. 1 for songs with barking.

John sang with such passion—whatever song it was, silly or not—and this song is certainly no exception.  That pretty defines the unique Lennon McCartney duo in my opinion— Paul's melodic tender voice and John's rough passionate voice.

silly song... this is just the right word :-)

the paradox is that it was a silly song, then, about 50 years ago...
...
and still sounds like a silly song from a very inventive NEW band fearlessly traveling on paths nobody dared to travel before, NOW (2017)!

Just thought I'd ask.
 

 
Most of the Beatles output was recorded and issued in mono, although stereo versions were quickly available for a lot of their stuff. George Martin worked hard to get the best mix with mono and wasn't too happy with the stereo versions demanded by people with better than average hi-fi players (cf 'record-players').

I'm not certain about Yellow Submarine, perhaps that was in stereo specifically because it was a film sound-track.

Yep... it rocks. And I like the zaniness at the end.

Of course, the Fabs were under contract to United Artists for a third movie, so UA could make $$$ from the soundtrack (just like AHDN and Help!). At that point they were disinclined to do another movie. When the idea of an animated Yellow Submarine movie came around, the Fabs answered their contract requirements by submitting a number of also-rans they deemed unworthy for one of their Parlophone albums.

Side two was an instrumental exercise whereby producer (Sir) George Martin could make some royalties on the Beatles' coattails—his salary at EMI Parlophone (and his non-existent bonuses) being paltry. Of course, Martin was also switching to independent status around this time (another recording world precedent), so that he could command a far better rate as a contractor to Parlophone for the Beatles' (and others') sessions. His independence evolved into his own AIR Studios.

As an aside, another branch of EMI developed the first commercially-viable CT scanner for medical diagnosis, using Beatles' profits to fund their R&D.

Indeed: A(nother) great song - rather unknown, in comparison!

Still - I wonder what the BEATLES had been without SIR GEORGE MARTIN - their true-true genius producer!

PS
Tip for those who do not know:

BUY YOURSELF "LOVE", the lastest "Beatles album" from 2010, I think! After listening you will understand why the BEATLES had never been that great without Sir Martin!

If you want to see the Beatles (which we can't but would like to anyway), go see the Fab Faux.  By far the best Beatles experience available (excluding Mr. McCartney).

These guys had serious range.  Contrast this simple pop/bubblegum against Revolution Number 9.  And this was the beginning of their psychedelic period!

The Beatles actually diagnosed a broken speaker for me a few years back. Only noticed the tweeter had gone out on one half of my set because of their single-side vocals.

As a committed Beatlemaniac, this is one of my favorites. Odd because as almost everyone knows, the Beatles despised this film while it was being produced and made very little effort to record quality songs for the soundtrack. It was only after they watched it the first time – and loved it – that they asked to make a live appearance at the end of the film.

I believe the extended version of "Yellow Submarine" released a few years back has the restored animated sequence that goes with this song.

Coinciding with the the film's re-release, Apple put together a cool video that shows the Beatles recording the song at Abbey Road.

Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWdLPGKQRXc    

Separating the tracks was something the Beatles commonly did once they started recording their albums in stereo, starting with "Revolver." "Eleanor Rigby" and "Martha My Dear" are just two songs that come to mind where the vocal track is in just one channel.
