99. The Beatles – Help 2/22
Please please help me. I think a lot of my connection to this album is thru the movie. Help is my favorite Beatles movie and I had a few classic moments a long time ago watching it. I just think it’s funny even if it is one of the dumbest movies ever. The time period of Help represents the cusp of when the Beatles were transitioning from the mop top Love Me Do phase to the shaggy haired psychadelia fused Tomorrow Never Knows phase. This was right before Rubber Soul. Treat me like you did the night before. Hey! you got to hide your love away. Love you all the time and never leave you. For I have got, Another Girl. You’re gonna lose that girl. But, she’s gotta ticket to ride. Cause you like me too much and I like you. I believe in yesterday.
100. The Beatles – Abbey Road 2/22
Right off the bat you can hear the difference between Help era Beatles and later day Beatles. There is so much more advanced production within this album. One thing I can tell you is you’ve got to be free. Come together, right now, over me. Something in the way she moves. Bang Bang Maxwell’s Silver Hammer. I’d like to be under the sea. I want you so bad it’s driving me mad, it’s driving me mad. One day when I was a kid I made a mix tape containing about 15 repeated instances of Here Comes The Sun. Listening to that song over and over again was apparently something I wanted to do at the time. Because the world is round, it turns me on. I love the whole medley You Never Give Me Your Money -> Sun King -> Mean Mr. Mustard -> Polythene Pam -> She Came in Through the Bathroom Window -> Golden Slumbers -> Carry That Weight -> The End. Sundays on the phone with Monday, Tuesdays on the phone with me. And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
