Hey Bulldog


Robert Bunter: John creates a nice percolating groove on this track, then pisses in the punchbowl with his usual sardonic gibberish.

Richard Furnstein: Paul gets some more sideways aggression out on immigrants in the UK (“Don’t look at me I only have ten children!”); a theme that he would trot out for the Paki-bashing “Get Back” on some other album.

I like it when they act like dogs at the end!



Robert Bunter: A true highlight of any bonus track selection of deleted scenes from the US theatrical prints of the "Yellow Submarine" film.

Richard Furnstein: Oh good point. I forgot that this song was marketed as "The Great Lost Beatles Track" when the bullshit Yellow Submarine Songtrack was released in 1999. Thanks for the shit we already own, EMI/Capitol.

  1. This is one of the coolest songs ever written. i love it! Wish they had a few more tunes in this style, groovy pop without the over the top soul influence. Awesome tones too! Is it true it was written on the set of I Am The Walrus? or did i make that up bc i want to picture them around that piano

  2. O.K. I've been perusing you guys on here and it's great to see some Beatle fans who aren't just saying how great they are and have some cool hard-headed and humourous views but----

  3. I said I'd just heard this on the radio one day in about 2004 and a casual aquaintance said 'oh! you know that one...you're more of a fan than i thought'.
    Great songs altogether only slightly spoilt by the riff being a bit of a rip from Money (TWIW).

  4. Hey Pie,
    I remember the reference in a Beatles book. The "Get Back"/immigration connection has been widely documented, and the vocal aside is generally seen as a similar reference. Killer riff, though, and I'm interested in the Money connection. Keep on commenting!
