* Not everyone thinks very highly of "When I'm Sixty-Four" or "Lovely Rita", but ''Sgt Pepper'' was made in a spirit of "love for everybody", and unusually among 60s bands, the Beatles meant ''everybody'', including their parents' generation and hot parking attendants. "When I'm Sixty-Four" was put in so that people like the band's parents would have a song on it just for them (rebelliousness was becoming the convention, and the Beatles weren't big fans of convention). Let's not forget the panting and gasping at the end of "Lovely Rita": Paul and Rita got it on after all.

* John justifies his lifelong laziness in the laid-back "I'm Only Sleeping", with its backwards guitar solo and almost otherworldly slowed-down lead vocal.

* John justifies his lifelong laziness in the laid-back "I'm Only Sleeping", with its backwards guitar solo and almost otherworldly slowed-down varispeeded lead vocal.[[note]]It wasn't slowed-down, as some people think; they wanted him to sound like an old man, so to achieve the effect he sang the lyric slower in a lower key, and they sped it up, which had the effect of raising the pitch of his voice and losing some of the low end. They used the same effect on Paul's voice in "When I'm Sixty-Four".[[/note]]

* "Back in the U.S.S.R" is a brilliant opening to one of their most influential album, and is similar to the opening of Rubber Soul and Revolver. An exhilarating rocker, the song both pays tribute to and parodies Music/ChuckBerry and Music/TheBeachBoys, especially the songs ''Back in the U.S.A'' and ''California Girls''. The song has been a staple for Paul's concerts, and was played multiple times by musicians touring Russia.
* "Dear Prudence" is a mellow ballad that segues from the rather loud previous song with a relatively simple premise. The segue feels natural, and the two very first songs of the lengthy album provides a glimpse of the variety the album would offer. It is also one of John's favorite songs.

* "The Night Before" is yet another hidden jem. This Motown inspired song was summed up perfectly by the ''Magazine/RollingStone'' when they said that for any other band, this would have turned into a career-making hit single, but for the Beatles, it was just another great album track.

* "Baby, You're a Rich Man" is one of the less known songs of the Beatles, but the unusual sound created by a clavioline, it's tongue-in-cheek lyrics and the catchy choruses makes it an unforgettable song. The song also received some recognition years after it's original release when it made a timely appearance in the film Film/TheSocialNetwork.

* The complete insanity that is "You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)", a comedic rock song (which features Paul as "Dennis O'Bell") with the late Music/BrainJones on saxophone is a fun tune, originally released as the B-side to "Let It Be".
