The underrated gem of this album in my opinion. Paul’s lyrics and vocals, the wonderfully surprising and complex harpsichord intro, the guitar solo. All of it just works. Most people tend to focus on the popular first three tracks and the undeniably brilliant and epic closer “A Day In The Life”, but I think songs like “Getting Better”, “She’s Leaving Home”, “When I’m Sixty Four”, and this one provide a nice relaxing change of pace from the psychedelic and often wacky sonic explorations of Sgt. Pepper. Sometimes less is more, and I think the Beatles were great at finding that balance between always trying new interesting things but still exercising self-restraint so as to remain commercially viable and not alienate their fanbase

Another Peppery summery dreamy song. Harpsichord is what gives this song that arty sound. Fab

Among the best of the album, so psychedelic, great vocals by Paul, great guitar bass and harpischord. A classic in psychedelic and baroque pop. I do not understand how this is among the lowest rated songs on this album this is incredible songwriting and one of the Beatles' finest tracks.

Paul McCartney's DIY metaphor for opening and expanding the mind is one of the most underrated of all of Sgt. Pepper's tracks. It's a superb song, actually one of my favourites on the record, with some wonderful lyrics, like most of the songs on the album, that brilliantly capture the time and place the album was recorded in. A nice guitar solo from George Harrison too, one of the few moments where you realise that he is actually playing on the album, apart from his own track of course. Every song on the record is an essential part of the Sgt. Pepper listening experience. Fixing a hole, is no different.
