"Strawberry Fields Forever" with John Lennon singing about a place near his home in Liverpool. A great thing about Lennon penned tunes was that he always included the listener on the journey. "Let me take you down..." Trippy and introspective, with slowed down tape to deepen lower his voice, then pieced together with another faster track in a different key. Great combo of rock instruments and orchestra. Great drum dynamics, especially the ending reprise and fadeout.
"Penny Lane" is Paul's Liverpool trip, a cheerful tune with some nice lyrical twists like "four of fish and finger pies" and "a pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray." Also like the horns, especially that solo."
