I can already hear this any time I want, I have it on me all the time, and even if I don't, I'd just use Youtube. But I think this is one of those songs that hit you hard when you're not expecting to hear them. I get goosebumps even when I come across this while I'm shuffling my Beatles playlist, so I can't imagine what I'd feel if I hear this on RP out of the blue.

Kind of funny but I spent a few hours last night listening to all the different versions of this song on Youtube.  Quite a story behind this song, now I know where the two takes are mixed together. 

It just hit the 6th year anniversary of the last time it was played on RP.   I am going to request it.

edit: well, looks like the "request song" link has been removed, guess I won't request it after all.

The Beatles by ~Arbeeroro

George, John, Ringo and Paul.
The Beatles.

Awful scan and quite a crude, un-sophistcated image (with a few errors in the drawing/cropping/lyrics) but a very personal piece of artwork for me.

Long story short the Beatles music gave me back my artistic inspiration (what little I had of it in the first place, anyway!)

This is dedicated to their wonderful music (and especially George Harrison who was my favourite of the Fab Four).

Strawberry Fields Forever was inspired by Strawberry Field, which was a Salvation Army home in Liverpool that John Lennon adored.

Instead of 10-godlike I would put 10-Strawberry fieldiesh foreverish Hey, btw, I would be curios to find out why isn't this song aired anymore. 60s pshychedelia not appropriate these days?

I can't remember how many times I played the Blue Album on my dad's old turntable as a little kid, just to wait for this song to enchant me once again. More than 16 years later it hasn't lost any of its magic.

That string arrangement always slays me as well. It makes the song very mysterious. I would have loved to have been in the studio when they were recording that one. :notworthy:

I can't believe I am the first to rate and comment on Stawberry Fields. What an honor! I believe this song was pieced together from two or even more different takes of the song. I think George Martin had to speed up one of the sections to make it match with the other. I like the song because to me it is about escapism, a different world. Also it creates a dreamy atmosphere without being depressing. In addition, I love the classical instruments in the arrangement. They add so much life and sophistication to the song. The music paints a beautiful picture in my mind.
