5 stars Quite simply, very few singles measure up to this. In particular the elegant fusion of the surreal and melancholic on "Strawberry Fields Forever" never fails to strike a chord, and is the marginally better side than "Penny Lane", though of course the latter - being largely McCartney's work - was more obviously perky hit material, though given The Beatles' sonic experiments of a far superior quality to anything that had gone before. And to think it was kept from the top of the UK charts by Engelbert Humperdinck's "Release Me"... There's no accounting for taste, eh?

Were i to sit here in comfy chair, with wind in my hair, happiness to share, with water to soak my feet, with plenty to eat, a warm summer breeze, pen and paper in hand, never have to stand, my wish your command, fish tickling my toes, tissues for my nose, dragonflies on my shoulders, flowers sitting on boulders, lovely lovely day, puppies like to play, come what may through April and May, nothing to say, all is OK, no rent to pay, for many many days, for weeks and cheeks, months and lumps, years and beers, making a list of all of the A-s and B-s better than these...

I wouldn't write a word. A better one-two punch this world has never see.

Mogorva | 5/5 |
