"Although that in the promo clips for Rain, The Beatles seem to be wearing the same type of clothes in the promo clip for Girl. Who knows which song is actually first?????"
"Girl" was on Rubber Soul LP (both England and U.S.) and would have been recorded earlier than "Rain".
The lyrical message and John's vocals are brilliant. The Epiphone guitars they used here recorded so beautifully and the arpeggiation of the chords with use of the fourth tonic in the scale really gives it that Lennon sound.
The bass here is truly remarkable not only the riffs but the sound, which was gotten by plugging the bass directly into the desk along with the use of compression.
And if Ringo believes this is one of his best performances I won't argue. No drummer can reproduce Ringo's style and this is a perfect example of it.
it makes sense that lennon liked this book, b/c his speech about jesus's disciples being ordinary and nothing special is pretty much straight out of the book as well.
Rain" is not the very first recording to feature "backmasking," but it is the first to incorporate backwards music into a mix.
The song's other sonic innovation came from Paul, who suggested slowing the entire backing track down to give the song a droning, "Indian" effect. While the recording is in the key of G, the actual song was played in A; John's vocal, on the other hand, was intentionally recorded even slower than the final track and sped up to achieve further disorientation. (The backing vocals, added later, appear to have been recorded as is in the studio.)
My Aunt Debbie put the "Hey Jude" Album on tape once, and This was on it, so, I coudn't wait for
me to find out which CD it was on. I got PM 2 for a belated birthday gift. I was so happy when Rain was on it!(I knew already!)

If you're someone who was born when (or can only remember when) CD's dominated, my message to you: Analogue is better. There is a layer of trebles and overtones that CD's clip off. vinyl is purer sound. There is so much music that is still on vinyl and tape that will never reach your ears if you never get a player. If you have never heard this song (Rain), you don't know what you're missing. There are hundreds of albums on record which are not on CD, some of which may be better than this song. I'm not against the digital revolution, but I think that in a time where music is recorded in serieses of 1's and 0's, we should not forget the music which is recorded in scratches on a sheet of plastic.
This is a John song.
