Even John Lennon thought Good Morning, Good Morning sucked. Best song: Fixing a Hole.

GM, GM might be my favorite song on the album. I'm not even counter-trolling.

Expressing an opinion that others disagree with = trolling

WTF

Eh, just busting yr balls a bit.

I just fkin love the guitar, and the crazy abrasive sound of the horns, and yes the animal sounds.

Don't get hating on GM,GM at all, the solo is searing, the drumming is spot-on, and Lennon's multitracked, queasy, weird, "I'VE GOT nothing to say but it's o.k" is so perfect.

Don't like: 64, Lovely Rita, GM, GM.

Not crazy about: Lucy, Within You Without You.

Everything else is various shades of fantastic

i've still never heard of Meet The Wife outside of the context of GM GM. i don't even know if it was a real TV show.

Macca is so great on GM, GM. Sure, the bass, but as the Doctor points out: that guitar break! I love his stupid flashy leads sometimes.

Meet The Wife (starring Thora Hird) was real! That is...all I know about it.

As a kid, my least favorites were Lucy and She's Leaving Home. A lot of people don't like Leaving because it's cloying or boring or slow, but for me it was straight traumatic, like I could imagine the girl's mother crying and all.

The guitar fill on GM, GM after "it's time for tea and 'Meet the Wife'" is 1,000x greater on the mono version than the stereo. I really do consider the mono the definitive version of this record and have zero interest in the stereo anymore.

OTM re: that fill. Sounds like it's double-tracked on the mono. Who knew such a seemingly minor addition could add exponentially to the song's power.

This was actually the one I most identified with as a teen because I fantasized about running away with my gf at the time

I need to hear the mono version ("You haven't heard Sgt. Pepper until you've heard it in mono" - John Lennon). I know "She's Leaving Home" is in a different key and speed - wonder why it was changed on the stereo mix.

Is there a way to buy a new copy of the mono CD outside of the mono box set?

I remember lying on the floor looking at the gatefold and fooling around with the cut-out inserts when I was six or seven. By then I already knew about the Beatles from their Saturday morning cartoon. My 1967 vote for worst song would have been "Mr. Kite," which kind of creeped me out. My favorites were probably "Lucy" and "Getting Better."

man, I guess I need to seek out the mono version of Pepper.

re: GM, GM - I dig Lennon's stark early take here:

the sparse recording reinforces the suburban hellishness of the song imho

Everybody else sees the background pulsating in that cover, right?

Right?
