(Note: If you want to be surprised at what you’ll hear in the new “Love” tracks, you might want to come back to this after you’ve heard them.)
Sir George Martin and Giles Martin’s new “Love” tracks “The Fool on the Hill” and “Girl,” which came onto iTunes Tuesday, have a lot of different elements in them, some recognizable, some not so on first few listens.
“The Fool on the Hill” starts out with a sitar, some very unfamiliar sounds, then what appears to be an instrumental part of the song stripped away from the rest of it. The song then starts in and it appears an organ can be heard. The McCartney vocal is the same as the master take. “Mother Nature’s Son” is also woven in. Osborne, who contacted us on Twitter, also heard “Because” and “Penny Lane.”
On “Girl,” the guitar intro of “And I Love Her” comes in right away. A sitar drone can also be heard. Osborne also heard “For the Benefit of Mr. Kite.” (You can read his full evaluation of the tracks here (http://forgetthebox.tumblr.com/post/3184428764/new-beatles-tracks-from-l…).
Of the two tracks, we think “The Fool on the Hill” is definitely the most interesting. But both will take several listens to sort them out.
You can get “Love” on iTunes here.
(Tip: If you’re having trouble seeing the new “Love” tracks by themselves to purchase them separately, search for the track names and the “Love” versions will come up.)
