Choon Choosday: The Beatles – You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)

14 April, 2015

I don’t listen to The Beatles much. I’ve got all the albums and each one of them (despite all being over 40 years old) can hold its own against any other album from any artist you care to name but it’s the fact that we Brits are brought up with The Beatles as part of our national culture and we don’t need to listen to them. Their songs are already implanted in our heads to be recalled and enjoyed whenever we have three minutes or so we want to mentally fill. And they are such a part of the fabric of society, to choose a choon of theirs on here is a bit of a cliché. Plus I try to select stuff you might not know, and that’s pretty tricky with The Beatles

But within their canon, there are a couple of rarities that don’t get any airplay. YKMN is one such song. Built up over several years, across various sessions, and then bolted together by George Martin, this is The Beatles pissing about and even then managing to create a work of genius. There is so much to admire here, so many moments of real inspiration, but for the me the top highlight is the raucous, interfering but perfectly fitting vibes which ride the badlands between being discordant/ghastly and being the very pinnacle of class.

And if for some reason this tune doesn’t grab you, you can at least play it to your friends and watch them fail when you challenge them to name the artist.

It’s silly, it’s brilliant, it’s inspired, it’s a
