Great album. If I had to pick one song, I would say Taxman, mostly for the bass lines.

The reason this album is on most top 5 classic rock albums of all time is because there really is no bad songs on it. They were at the top of their game even giving 3 song slots to Harrison. He was becoming as good a writer as anything Lennon and McCartney wrote. If I had to pick one song I would choose Tomorrow Never Knows for its innovative recording gimmicks further cementing The Beatles as far ahead of anyone else at that time. Even The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones were so impressed they had to create their own "Revolver" albums. Thanks for sharing Barbara.

I love Revolver; My favorite song is And Your Bird Can Sing...However I saw Paul McCartney in Cincinnati, OH on Thursday and he sang Elanor Rigby; so right now my favorite is that one. Paul was unbelievable; he looked young and sounded great!!

Masterful. And look at those song lengths - nothing over 3 mins. It's like they can't wait to show you their next idea!
