The Beatles – Hey Bulldog [Song Review]

February 18, 2012

Thought i would take a break from the usual reviews of new music and put a spin on this blog by reviewing one of my favorite tracks so here we go this is Hey Bulldog by in my opinion the greatest band there has ever been The Beatles.

Hey Bulldog”  is a song by The Beatles which first appeared on the Yellow Submarine soundtrack album in 1969. Primarily by John Lennon (credited to Lennon-McCartney), and finished in the studio by Lennon and McCartney, the song was recorded during the filming of the “Lady Madonna” promotional video, and like “Lady Madonna” is one of the few Beatles’ songs to revolve around a piano riff.

I believe this is one of The Beatles songs that has never really took a rightful place as such more popularized songs like “Hey Jude”  and “Let it Be” Yes the song may feature a different style to many other popular songs but i still believe it should be regarded as one of their greatest songs! We could start by how the song is written, to a non-Beatles fan the song would sound like utter rubbish due to the awkward style of Lennons lyrics how they literally make no sense! but i do believe that this gives the song a different feel. Plus backed in with a guitar riff by George Harrison you cant go wrong.

Its evident how popular this song is though due to the many different versions that have been published by other artists some as big as Elvis Costello and Alice Cooper but despite all this its easily recognizable that the style of the Beatles just simply cannot be copied!

If i had to rate this song in my perspective it would definitively be a 15/10 i just love how the song is so catchy yet simple to play and listen to. If you haven’t heard this song make sure you listen! and listen to more of the Beatles!
