It’s been quite a while since I last posted my countdown of the top 30 albums in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The last post I did was on number 6 in the list, Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”, and that post was done in November of last year! So, time to resume with the top 5 in the list.
At number 5 in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time is “Rubber Soul” by The Beatles. The Beatles released this album in 1965, it is between “Help” and “Revolver” in their discography. It is one of my favourite Beatles albums, with such amazing songs as “Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)”, “In My Life” and the funky “Drive My Car”.
“Rubber Soul” also has more songs with Lennon and McCartney duetting than did its predecessor “Help”. There are also two songs – “Nowhere Man” and “The Word” where we have wonderful 3-part harmonies from Lennon, McCartney and Harrison, something not heard on a Beatles album since the 1964 “Beatles For Sale”.
The song I have decided to include with this blog is “The Word”, as I figured it is one of their less well known songs. Enjoy!
Which is your favourite song on “Rubber Soul”?
