You trying to tell me you didn't hear that shriek? That was something trying to get out of its premature grave, and I don't want to be here when it does. - Phantom of the Paradise (1974)

I've never heard that one. Rather unusual, isn't it?

Beatles for Sale is, on some levels, my favorite Beatles album. It was where John Lennon's creativity as a songwriter really blossomed, with a strong influence from Bob Dylan. Those first three tracks, "No Reply," "I'm a Loser," and "Baby's in Black" (as well as others), all have a note of melancholy that makes this album seem deeper than the group's previous efforts. There are a couple of Carl Perkins covers, which are fairly forgettable, but on the whole I really dig the relatively dark and serious mood of this LP.
"I feel so low, old chap, that I could get on stilts and walk under a dachshund." - Monty, "It" (1927)

Interesting info—I’m ashamed to admit that this is the first I’ve heard of this album.
