  • Quality recording, great song
  • She's a prick teaser, she took me half the way there
  • Though it’s George who played the famous riff on the recording, credit for this hit’s trippy feel should go to John. After composing the main guitar parts, Lennon performed the guitar solo in studio while songwriting partner Paul handled the verses and bass and Ringo added drums and tambourine. With a funky yet smooth riff and their soulful vocal harmonizing, it’s no wonder “Day Tripper” was a worldwide smash. -- watchmojo
