Yeah, it's possible - just take "Let Em In" - please, take it, take it away from me, I can't stand that song!

Seriously, there's a few references there - Martin Luther, the Everly Brothers, etc.

Why don't you like that?? I think that "Let'em in" is not phenomenal but a good song. I like the brass section specially.
Yeah there's some references to his family and some personalities, Martin Luther could be the murdered Afro-American activist, or the Protestantism founder, which of them?? Maybe references to both??

Peace.

No, it's the Protestant one. The Afro-American was Martin Luther King Jr. It's easy to mix them up if you're not thinking, though. We studied them both in Religious Studies when I was 13. And there were numerous jokes about getting them mixed up . . .

I wonder why you dont like that song, Let Em In, dont you like Denny's drummin? Dsnito, why is it that in the last part of that song the last note in the fade out part became louder? Any special reason for that?

I love Let 'Em In. Didn't at first, but it grew on me. Kite, I think the fade out where it becomes louder again is just for effect. Pretty cool, IMHO.

I'd like a Macca shake and Macca fries please....

Yes Mr.Kite, I agree with Steve, that was just an effect, a false-ending or a thing like that, peculiar to a Beatle-song. An example: Strawberry Fields, though maybe have others that I don't recall right now...

Well the effect still made a mark in that song. I never thought about Sailor Sam, I'm just as curious as you all are.
