Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
5 stars Strawberry Fields Forever/ Penny Lane is a single release by British pop/ rock act The Beatles. Itīs a double A-side single release where John Lennonīs Strawberry Fields Forever were paired with Paul McCartney`s Penny Lane. While it is widely considered one of the most impressive and succesful single releases ever it was actually the first Beatles single not to reach number #1 in the UK charts since Love Me Do (1962). The technicality that the single had two A-sides meant that the BBC counted the single as two seperate singles and because of that Engelbert Humperdinck's Release Me which sold only half as many copies as Strawberry Fields Forever/ Penny Lane went number #1 and kept The Beatles on number #2. The single went number #1 in the US charts though.

The two songs are IMO some of the best songs The Beatles ever made. The psychadelic Strawberry Fields Forever and the beautiful Penny Lane just compliment each other so extremely well. Both songs were later released on the US/ Canada album version of Magical Mystery Tour (1967) but until then they were exclusively available on this single. Bearing that in mind this is an essential release by The Beatles and one of their most impressive accomplishments IMO. 5 stars is a matter of course.

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 mor ...
