Eleanor Rigby (song)[edit]

The Beatles song off of Revolver that is. Self-nom. This article has already been through peer review and a FAC nomination. It's gone through a lot of structural changes since then, and I definitely think it's up to FAC quality now. Any suggestions? Thanks! --The PNM 22:45, 9 October 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I like this article a lot; it's very nice. I could come up with only two ideas for improvement:
  1. Seems like there's a little internal contradiction about coming up with the name "Father McKenzie"... Paul thinking "Dad's a happy lad" and leafing through the phonebook, and Pete Shotton suggesting the change.
    • Good points -- the contradiction comes because of the two sources -- McCartney, in an interview right after the song, said HE did it, and Shotton, years later, said he did it. I imagine that McCartney is a much more reliable source, especially seeing as how he WROTE the song, and since the interview is from the year he song was released, so I deleted Shotton's claim to make it interally consistent. Thanks for pointing that out! --The PNM 16:31, 14 October 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  1. The Japanese album cover seems out of place, only because it features the band in a live performance, and we're talking about a song never perfomed live.
    • I'll start looking for some fair use art I could use there instead. I guess it probably does give the wrong impression.--The PNM 16:31, 14 October 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • There are quite a few one-sentence paragraphs. Also, there are several short paragraphs, especially in "Releases" Ryan Norton T | @ | C 06:37, 14 October 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • I got rid of all those one paragraphers and in the releases section make a larger graf (and made it flow better). What do you think about it now? Thanks! --The PNM 16:31, 14 October 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
