Sgt. Pepper illustrated the transformation of the Beatles and turned their music into a more serious approach. Here’s our Track-By-Track Guide To Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles:
13. Good Morning Good Morning
John Lennon’s perky vocals were so heavy on this song that it became unsettling to listen. It’s probaby, IMHO, the worst track from the album.
12. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)
It’s not as bad as “Good Morning Good Morning” — but what is the sense of a reprise, right? It’s more of a snippet rather than a song, really.
11. Fixing A Hole
McCartney found himself in a hole fixing everything up with a THC substance. His fingers fumble on the track’s bass-line.
10. Lovely Rita
The Fab Four themselves were confused about how the song would turn out. McCartney gives it a nursery rhyme lyric while giving an awesome tune.
9. Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite!
The lyrics of the song were like found in a junk shop — but they, of course, provided it a fair tune.
8. Getting Better
It’s definitely not the band’s greatest compositions, Getting Better was a prime example of a Lennon-McCartney combination and what they can accomplish.
7. With A Little Help From My Friends
McCartney provided this song a drive — with an honest beat and something that is impossible to resist.
6. When I’m Sixty-Four
A sentimental track and one of their most well-known track from the album, it’s been overplayed, and overused but that’s because it’s a great listen.
5. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
McCartney turned this track as one of their best experimentation — and it’s a cutting edge experiment, of course. This serves as the Fab Four’s alter ego.
4. She’s Leaving Home
This is were the Lennon-McCartney collab gets interesting — McCartney was the emotional one, while Lennon gives this track life.
3. Within You Without You
One of George Harrison’s greatest contributions — he certainly was the coolest and greatest among the Beatles if he was given enough chance. Within You Without You was definitely an anthem during the ‘67’s Summer Of Love.
2. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds was inspired by Lennon’s son, young Julian where his picture was drawing — however, it was misconceptualized as an LSD song – hence, became one of the first few psychedelic songs.
1. A Day In The Life
Ringo was awesome in this track, and yep, he deserves to be recognized for his amazing work on this one. A Day In The Life he played it, was something we would never imagine he could do. But, of course, Lennon and McCartney, themselves, were the reason behind this amazing song.
