Song of the Day: Best of Beatles Track #2 - Ticket to Ride
By far my favorite Beatles song and it's because it is the model for all of their other songs and just about every song you hear today. It was their second hit single and I honestly think it makes people insane. It has the 3 changes, 3 choruses, and the offbeat drum.
Just listen to the downbeat from Ringo alone and you'll be hypnotised. Muted guitar, simple lyrics, men singing an octive too high (which obviously wasn't knew since the days of doo-wop), the Harrison 4 second solos, the end of the song when they change it completely before fading out, and the tiny little Beatles moment which makes it for me is when you the ....."Awwhhhhuuuhhhhwww's" right before "She's got a ticket to ride."
It is in my opinion the most perfect song ever constructed...and I'm dead serious.
I'd play this song everyday if I remembered to do so. Link posted by JVMM : 10:51 AM
