If you've ever wondered what Paul McCartney says nine seconds in to the song What Goes On, the website What Goes On: The Beatles Anomalies List is not to be missed. It is an utterly exhaustive and exhausting catalog of every single blip, mistake, snippet of chatter, missed line, and the like The Beatles ever committed on tape of their official releases. It's been around since Usenet's prime and given the overall appearance of the site (i.e. frames, yellow and blue backgrounds, etc.) it looks like it hasn't been updated since then (although it notes January 2008 as the most recent update.)

Get Beatle-geeked. Thanks, Tim.

Oh, and evidently he says, "Yip!" in the left channel.

This site has ruined several Beatles songs for me, because now I can hear every imperfection they mention loud and clear. Their attention to detail is amazing; my poor ear never picked anything up...
