All the rules fell The Beatles - Revolver the wayside with Revolveras the Beatles began exploring new sonic territory, lyrical subjects, and styles of composition. It wasn't just Lennon and McCartneyeither -- Harrison staked out his own dark territory with the tightly wound, cynical rocker "Taxman"; The Beatles - Revolver jaunty yet dissonant "I Want to Tell You"; and "Love You To," George 's first and best foray into Indian music.
Such explorations were bold, yet they were The Beatles - Revolver by Lennon 's trippy kaleidoscopes of sound. His most straightforward number was "Doctor Robert," an ode to his dealer, and things just got stranger from there as he buried "And Your Bird Can Sing" in a maze of multi-tracked guitars, gave Ringo a charmingly hallucinogenic slice of childhood whimsy in "Yellow Submarine," and then capped it off with a triptych of bad trips: the spiraling "She Said She Said"; the crawling, druggy "I'm Only Sleeping"; and "Tomorrow Never Knows," a pure nightmare where John sang portions of the Tibetan Book of the Dead into a suspended microphone over Ringo 's thundering, menacing drumbeats and layers of overdubbed, phased guitars and tape loops.
McCartney 's experiments were formal, as he tried on every pop style from chamber pop to soul, and when placed alongside Lennon 's and Harrison 's outright experimentations, McCartney 's To Love Somebody - The Raes - The Raes becomes all the more impressive.
