The French horn solo was by Alan Civil, a British horn player described by recording engineer Geoff Emerick as the "best horn player in London".[6] During the session, McCartney pushed Civil to play a note that was beyond the usual range of the instrument. According to Emerick, the result was the "performance of his life."

Like everyone else it's hard to pick a favorite. I like a lot of the singles (Hey Jude, Lady Madonna). Strawberry Fields/Penny Lane might just be the greatest 45 single ever released.

The whole Abbey Road melody is amazing ("You never give me your money" to "The End")

Don't Let Me Down - This track has a nice soul/lounge type of feel to it

Strawberry Fields
