Beatles Break

I want to say something really profound about art or collaboration, or somehow tie this into writing, but I'm just too freaking wowed by it. Check this out.

Basically, it's an excerpt from a BBC special pulling apart some songs from Sgt. Pepper, and a few from other albums. They've separated the tracks, so you can hear each Beatle's individual contribution to a song, and how George Martin tied everything together so beautifully. Really worth a listen.


  1. Holy CRAP. That is mind blowing. I've always known that the Beatles were primarily a studio band because of all the experimentation they were doing (with the music! Get your mind out of the gutter!), but I had no idea how layered each song truly is. That's just freaking AMAZING. I can't wait to send this to my dad. He's going to freak. Awesome link, L. Thanks!

    I'm supposed to be writing. You are the devil.

  2. The Come Together one was extraordinary. *Sigh*

  3. You see? YOU SEE? this is what I keep learning. It's all connected, life, art, all kinds of expression. We just need to have the vision.....
