Yellow Submarine – The Beatles

The Beatles Yellow Submarine

Yellow Submarine

(1969), 6/10
In this age of digital music, it’s easy to ignore George Martin’s instrumental score and treat Yellow Submarine as a four song EP.  Even then, it’s not a great Beatles’ effort, but it does feature some of their last songs where they feel like a fully functional band. Harrison’s ‘Only A Northern Song’ is a worthwhile outtake from Sgt. Peppers, but the key track is ‘Hey Bulldog’ with dadaist lyrics from Lennon, a nagging piano riff, and a great McCartney bass line. Stuck on a sometimes ignored record, it’s probably the close thing there is to an overlooked Beatles’ song. I can’t sit through the whole album, but it’s well worth hearing the four new songs on Yellow Submarine
