    The background vocals are more fun to sing than the lead, I think!

    The rhythm guitar stands out on this one. Great jangle and drive.

    Queen never did anything as good as the vocal harmonies in "Because".

    We obviously look at voice harmonies differently.

    thanks-always paired this with 'Another Girl' -- the construction of their bridges always struck me as so inventive-- the modulation to another key, and the return to home.. perfection!

    Exactly. One of their greatest strengths was being able to take something that "shouldn't" work (chord changes, time signature changes) and make them sound natural and accessible.

    the chimey dissonance in the ticket to ride intro. One could write a book on the multitude of original twists they imparted to pop music........wait...

    Queen may have taken harmonies to new heights but the die had already been cast.

    Queen had 24-track machines at their disposal, too...

    You guys are forgetting the best part,
    Ringo and his whole kit fall through the floor at the end of the song!

    Probably so. I always considered Queen to be more "Broadway".

    Only on TV or youtube. Not a huge fan beyond a handful of songs.
    I think Mercury's Mic stand schtick was really cheesy and over the top frontmen are not really my thing.

    That is why you think of them only on Broadway. They are known as the greatest live rock band in history. The shows that have been made about Queen have given them a Broadway feel for those that have not really seen them.

    The entire Help! album often gets overlooked because, quite frankly, the Help! movie was no Hard Days Night; and chronologically the album was just before the "artistic breakthrough" of Rubber Soul. And its a soundtrack album with some soundtrack orchestrations and fewer songs.

    You're Going To Lose That Girl is so good, but so is Ticket To Ride, and the song Help! was Lennon's personal favorite, and I loved You've Got To Hide Your Love Away etc

    Great song. This homage is a cool video and an amazing listen:

    Pretty amazing how the legacy of the Fab4 has remained constant around the globe.
    I needed a smile today. I got it. Cheers.
