Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite by The Beatles – ****

First released: 1967

Triiiiippppyyyy! I always love that calliope part and other assorted weird sounds associated with this track. Trippier still is when you become a Beatles scholar and you discover how they did it, by cutting up tapes and throwing them up in the air and then fastening them back together in little tape loops. This is a highlight from "Sgt. Pepper". "(Takes 1 and 2)" and "(Take 7)" appear on 1996's "Anthology 2". It is also used for 2006's "Love".
