I have to admit that my favorite Beatles song changes on a weekly basis. But for the last couple of months, I've been addicted to "Paperback Writer."
This is a 1966 song that I think is really unique and creative. The lyrics essentially form a letter from an author who is trying to sell a manuscript to a potential publisher. The best part, however, is the bass-heavy track with the rocking guitar riff. Plus the vocals sound great: The guys take awesome harmonies and distort them with studio all the studio magic they perfected.
An all-around great record. Though I like just about all of the Beatles singles, I think their music really leapt forward in the mid-1960s when they started experimenting more heavily with their sound like they did on this record.
