At least I'm closer to Paradise than you! {#Nyah}

This is one of those:  stop what I'm doing, turn it up a bit more, and just enjoy.  Just awesome!  The "ahhhhhhh" harmony at the start of Sun King,  the changes that just seem to fit together. All the way to The End!

Not that I don't like some of their work, admire the production (the real 5th beatle) and recognize their role in RnR history, just that I like more of what they did after the band broke up.

If you had to choose, is this their greatest single song?

Or, as some would claim,is it:  "A Day in the Life"?

357 out of 3763 (9%) rate this as less than a 8.  This is significantly lower than the rate of mental illness in the general population.  These people need help.  Stat.

These songs are brilliant like most Beatles songs,especially John Lennon and Paul McCartney songs and some George Harrison songs.

Can you use your wildest imagination and think of a band in the last 20 years, that could even attempt to do something like this one song, this one album, etc?

This automatically makes me stop whatever I'm doing, looking for a production deal or writing a mail, to listen and sing along. Sure fire way to stop me cold. It's almost impossible to do otherwise. A 9? Umm, that's too low. Silly songs, mostly, but genius nonetheless. Magnum opus.

Incredible in the fact that these were unfinished songs they blended together to make one of Rocks highest moments.

You must also remember his NYC-radio competitor from back then, Murray the K, from 1010 WINS - the self-proclaimed "fifth Beatle."

Many people born in the 1920s and '30s thought popular music "all turned to garbage" after rock and roll came into prominence, so I guess it's all relative.

It's not a song. It's a suite. And it's an orchestral symphony to rock and roll. Of the first magnitude.  And a magnum opus. Check it out.

I so much more appreciated the Beatles rock/Hippie music over the pop period even though all their music is iconic.
