Fab forte

In answer to Charles G. Hill's question, my favorite Beatles song is "There's a Place." It belongs to that time when Lennon and McCartney were a true songwriting team, attempting together to rewrite Goffin and King ("Up on the Roof"), and coming out with a borderline Baroque melodic style that sounded like no one else on Earth. "Yes It Is" is of a piece with it.
