I remember getting laughed at by my uncle cos i was listening to this with headphones on, maybe 9 years old, absolutely blasting yellow submarine. I didnt see what was funny about listening to the best song ever created (to my 9 year auld self). Years later i was listening to this same record in the bath and got hit by this nostalgia and remembered this memory. It just popped into my mind because of the fuckin mad harmony that is underneath the melody in yellow submarine, i remember hearing those harmonies as a 9 yr auld with the headphones on, yellow submarine. Definitively the moment my musical education swung into discovery of the recorded make-up of a song. And i never got into Beach Boys (until much later) because none of their harmonies are as weird or as secret, or maybe its cos you are allowed to love beach boys but youre not allowed to love yellow submarine if youre older than 8 years old. If u havent heard the harmony im talking about, i suggest you get headphones today and tune into it. Just wish as a 9 yr old i coulda been like, “haw! Listen to the harmony man, ur missing out on this cos ur too focused on the lyrics, ringos seacaptain voice and the childishness of the song”
