#53: ‘And Your Bird Can Sing’- from my favorite Beatles album- and second favorite album of all times- Revolver- every song but ‘Love You To’ made the Hans Hot 100 from Revolver. This is a song which John Lennon- who wrote it would later call it just a throwaway- but most fans would argue otherwise. A great sounding song above all else. There are many different thoughts as to what the song is about. The original title was ‘You Don’t Get Me’- I am thinking that the speculation that it was about John’s relationship with his then wife Cynthia may be the correct one. Who knows- it does have a great sound!


  1. Joe Walsh told the story about how he spent months trying to learn the guitar solo in this when he was a teen, thinking that George played both lines simultaneously, and actually learned it. Years later he ran into George and asked him how he did it, and George said he double-tracked it. Later I read that he and Paul did it together…
