T hese two tracks took us halfway there to Rubber Soul and its warm, psychedelic setting. Paul’s “We Can Work It Out” (which appears to be the A side in the US, the B side in the UK) has its precedent in “I’ve Just Seen A Face,” its antecedent in “Wait” and “I’m Looking Through You.” Likeable, though the accordion/organ is a little hokey today. John’s “Day Tripper” is an angrier affair, an unsatisfying encounter cut from the same stuff as “Norwegian Wood.” Of note is the opening guitar riff to “Day Tripper,” which I could name in six notes. More on these tracks (including who wrote what) appears on Songfacts for Day Tripper and We Can Work It Out.
