|Culprit||The Beatles REPEAT OFFENDER!|
|Written by||John Lennon and Paul McCartney|
This is apparently a pointless, raw jump up a tone at the end of a song for no good reason. The suspicion that this is just padding to stretch the song out a bit is reinforced by the flute following the vocal melody and the absurd trumpet blasts which seem to say "hey, this is a bit different to the last chorus, honestly!" Yet in a brave defence of Macca's songwriting skills, Dominic Pedler points out in his "Muso's introduction" article that the final chorus does actually end up at the original key of B in which the song starts, thereby coming full circle. I have to say that, even with this realisation, listening to the song in its entirety does little to offset the twang of pain caused by the final shift.
