S cha-wung. The implications of which reverberated for years to come. So much hinged on the opening seconds of any new Beatles song, like when mana must have first hit the tastebuds after a long hunger, and scha-wung schwasn’t what anyone expected. Of course, it’s all sweetness after that. As for the implications, look to “Magic Carpet Ride,” “Last Child,” etc. (which is Latin for I’m too lazy to list the others). “Things We Said Today” (the B side in the UK) is another taste of honey from Paul; the US got the superior “I Should Have Known Better.” Both B-sides also appear on the soundtrack to A Hard Day’s Night.
