drive my car? huh wah huh?HuhShocked
Yep not sure I get it either. Isn't the point of these threads to explain the choice? To discuss? I'd sure like to hear why "Drive My Car".

I don't dislike the song. I like the others better, that's all.
The verses aren't interesting - pretty much just a one note melody.
Maybe I got sort of sick of the song due to oversaturation. For years a local radio station would play part of it when doing the motorway traffic reports.

Paul's vocal is super-cool there! 3D One-note-million-note is 2ndary if it's sung like that!

The preceding albums were the countdown. Now we are BLASTING OFF!!!

Quote
Rubber Soul is an album by the Beatles, their sixth UK album, and the tenth released in America. Released on 3 December 1965, it met with a highly favourable critical response and topped record charts in the United Kingdom for several weeks, as well as in the United States, where it was issued with a different selection of tracks.

Produced by George Martin, Rubber Soul incorporates a mix of 1960s pop, soul, and folk music styles. The album's name comes from the term plastic soul, which popular African American soul musicians coined to describe Mick Jagger, a white musician singing soul music. It was the second Beatles album after the British version of A Hard Day's Night to contain only original material, and was recorded in just over four weeks to make the Christmas market. Unlike the five albums that preceded it, Rubber Soul was recorded during a continuous period, whereas the group had previously made their albums during breaks between tour dates and other commitments. The project marked the first time that the Beatles focused on creating an album as an artistic work, an approach that they then developed with Revolver (1966) and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967).

The album has been included in numerous "best of" album lists compiled by various publications, and is regarded by musicologists as a major artistic achievement that continued the group's artistic maturation while attaining widespread critical and commercial success. In 2012, Rubber Soul was ranked number five on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time". In 2013, after the British Phonographic Industry changed their sales award rules, the album was declared as having gone platinum.

I have a soft spot for Michelle. Reminds me of my uncle who used to play it in his cover band in the 80s. I was just a kid then but they'd sometimes let me sit at the top of the basement stairs at my Gramma's house and watch them rehearse. My uncle was the singer (and drummer) of the band, and he sang Michelle so beautifully. Not a moo to be heard for miles Smiley

 3D "The Word" is back out the door!

"Wait" is next. Wish P&J sang the chorus harmonies differently. As is, it's plain bad & lacks energy.

What does picnic wholly mean?

I think they were a better live band than a lot of people give them credit for, but by 1966 they were fed up with it and getting careless.

I mean, take this performance of 'Things We Said Today' from 1964:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFD3GT387uI

And this one of 'She Loves You', to me (along with 'Strawberry Fields Forever') their greatest song:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoF-7VMMihA

Maybe it's just me, but there was such a magic when they were on. When they gave it, they gave it all. By 1966 they just weren't giving it.

Oh okay, I've just never heard the phrase 'picnic wholly' before.

Their performance of 'Yesterday' in Japan is great I think.

It makes sense now that you pointed it out but I've never heard it before haha. They have holy picnics at my local church but I figured that's not what you were referring to.
