August. It's considered a sequel of sorts to their previous album ''Music/RubberSoul'', as it continues in the band's foray into folk rock.

* IntimidatingRevenueService: "Taxman", inspired by how the British government wanted to take too much out of George's income; at the time, the Beatles were being taxed at a marginal income tax rate of ''95%'' (a fairly common marginal rate for the top tax bracket in European countries at the time, and not the highest--some Nordics applied ''99%'' income tax brackets). This is noted in the lyrics ("One for you/Nineteen for me").

Added DiffLines:

* VillainSong: "Taxman" is basically the titular character boasting that he's going to take 95% of your money and there's nothing you can do about it.

** Several songs have little or no precedent in The Beatles' previous music. They'd used a sitar on ''Rubber Soul''[='=]s "Norwegian Wood", but "Love You To" was overtly influenced by Indian music and philosophy. "Got to Get You Into My Life", a tribute to Creator/{{Motown}} and {{Soul}} Music in general, marked the group's first use of a horn section. (Music/EarthWindAndFire would later cover the song, bringing things full circle.) Meanwhile, "Tomorrow Never Knows" was the band's first excursion into AvantGardeMusic; it anticipates ''Music/TheWhiteAlbum'''s "Revolution #9", as well as John's early collaborations with Music/YokoOno.

* OdeToIntoxication: Did you think "Got to Get You Into My Life" was a love song? It is. A love song about how much Paul [=McCartney=] loved to smoke marijuana.
