Run for Your Life because I find it hilarious that John hated that song, but George loved it.
>>
>>114692169
John hated a lot of his own songs. He hated Lucy and And Your Bird Can Sing

Far away and away Michelle

this thread should be more of a "rate" than a one-off what's the best song

Rubber Soul tracks ranked:

Tier I
>In My Life
>Nowhere Man
>Drive My Car
(these form three sides of an equal pyramid in which IML is the most radiant)

Tier II

>Norwegian Wood (could also be in tier 1)
>Girl
>If I Needed Someone

Tier III

>Think For Yourself (could be tier II)
>Wait
>Michelle
>I'm Looking Through You

>Tier IV
>I'm Looking Through You
>You Won't See Me
>The Word
>What Goes On
>Run For Your Life (musically this would be Tier III or even II but the lyrics off-put)

>>114690139
If I Needed Someone is basically a top ten hit for the Byrds (RIP David Crosby). it is most definitely under-rated. Good call, anon.
>>
in my life probably but i think you wont see me has my softest spot.

i think that song is fucking gorgeous.

then id say if i needed someone and looming through you follow up as next faves. i really like the whole record as a unit though
>>
>>114693353
would you give me feedback on an interpretation I made of you won't see me since you like it vm?
>>
apart from run for your life. i could live without that song. id probably swap it for the one that opens the american version of rubber soul, i forgot its name. dont like run for your life. just doesnt fit, no wonder they bumped it on the end even though there are probably better closing songs
>>
>>114693370
go on. i dont even have an interpretation
>>
>>114693391
https://voca.ro/1myvBmiFT5Ye

its interpretation is also an homage to Elliott smith
>>
>>114693428
why dont you just typr it
>>
>>114687694
You won't see me.
Anything other than (((Run for your a life))) works though.
>>
>>114693975
damn mr poole really rocking the silicon valley cuckold homosexual look

Paul's bass playing on that song is fantastic.
>>
>>114694492
why is it your least? what's the runner up to dmc?
>>
>>114693428
>>114694462
interpretation is an ambiguous word. jusy say COVER. and you bother to repost but cant even give feedback on his song? very sad tripdude.

thought the interpretation is good though you need some work on the vocal control,
>>
>>114694860
thanks ill work on it . it was just a quick take. maybe I should re-do it.
>>
>>114694916
which toxic ex inspired this interpretation
>>
i like the beatles
but
there used to be a time when merely mentioning them here got you banned
>>
>>114694988
what Chiba was to Elliott this ex was to me. extremely destructive. cool question. thanks for asking. it was actually a perfect song to describe what I was feeling at the time. they had BPD, so the "act your age" phrase was perfect.

I broke up with them finally and they literally took a month to find an apartment they would choose. they moved to the other side of the block. still I dislike seeing them, and prefer to elude them should they continue their gaslighting narrative of victim-blaming me. they have tried hard to stay in the circles of people I brought them into. the "you won't see me" is a dedication to that self-discipline to avoid the nonsense. thank you for asking.
>>
>>114687694
Run For Your Life
>>
>>114694988
the "we have lost the time that was so hard to find" I relate to how difficult it was for "them" to find someone like me, and vice versa. we really loved each other. but BPD can impose impossible walls of narcissistic deflection. I feel bad for the woman. she been thru a lot of shit, but its no excuse for the shit they put me through. they had tendencies to be violent, and they seemed to want to set me up. too much to go into.

>>114694525
That is good but the vocal melody is too notch too.
>>114687775
This comment honestly got to me cause really it’s just so piercingly true. Sad part of the human condition I guess. Great tune tho.
It’s amazing how a song as good as Norwegian wood isn’t even in my top 3 (it’s number 4) yet for most bands that’d be their best song.
Is this their most emotionally charged work, boys?

one of my fave things about the band.

I remember the first time I heard rocky raccoon I was like what the fuck is this, I never hear it talked about but it rules. Kind of a country song
>>
>>114695543
Rocky Raccoon is brilliant. Lyrically, it's easily canonizable. Their lyrical storytelling in it is superb. It's the kind of quality that makes an instant classic, or, like a song easily a "standard" or "traditional", like "Lightning Express".
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCN2HWgcwxw

Honestly it is really beautiful you can remember the first time you heard it. Honestly, I wish I could, too. It's so special that I want to encourage you to pay homage to that memory by immortalizing it in a visual art interpretation or rendition of that memory. Blessed, indeed, you are, fren.

the part that goes
>nanananana c'mon rocky boy
is brilliantly Beatlesy and I am in love w that kind of special phrase in a song. yeah, man, it totally rules. also, the other day, I realized that the melody is similar to Martha My Dear... at least the bit that goes "Martha, my dear" and the bit that goes "Rocky Raccoon", respectively.

>>114687738
Dylan rip off
>>
>>114694525
Loved playing it on bass on Beatles rock band, that and don’t let me down and hey bulldog
>>
>>114695724

a rip-off would be like if they ripped the melody.. like what Dylan has done many many times. you don't rip a style. Dylan didn't "rip" from folk tradition. he was generically folky... he ripped Woody. I'd say it's Dylan-influenced. With a melody as good as NW's, you would be better off *not* summing it down to such a rejectionary reducement.
>>
>>114687694
Rubber Soul is The Beatles' all-out attack on women. It's their most misogynist and problematic album by a long shot.
The album's problems begin with Norwegian Wood, a song about burning a woman's house down because she wouldn't sleep with them, and it's all downhill from there. You Won't See Me is some incel shit about how a girl won't answer their phone calls and doesn't want to go on a date. Girl is self-explanatory. The album closes with Run For Your Life, a song about murdering a young girl for cheating.
Even in 1965, this was fucking unacceptable.
>>
>>114695813
in 1965, this was most popular.

your commentary is insightful, partly, at least, however. as in, I don't think there is any other album that has so many songs that at least express some of Lennon's insensitivity to the female kind.

you won't see me seems more like a lover calling his/her lover after some kind of argument or disagreement that has put them at a possibly romantically-terminal distance.
>>
>>114695877
I’m pretty sure that’s pasta
>>
>>114687694
I think Paul McCartney's brother had a better group than the Beatles...

it kind of reads like it for sure. still has valid content to respond to. maybe it'll help the pasta-poster enhance their pasta.
>>
>>114695661
I will have to check that out, yes. I do love when music matches perfectly with one of life’s “scenes” (as I’m sure everyone does).

>>114687694
Run For Your Life and its not a competition
