Helter Skelter

Lyrics

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again.

Do, don't you want me to love you

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again.

This is my favorite Beatle song. I think Charles Manson ruined it for us. Helter Skeltor originally was a nursery rhyme in England. I think Paul should record it again and introduce it to this generation. I think he should record it with the demon of screaming (Steven Tyler). Paul has done songs with MJ and Stevie Wonder. I think Steven Tyler has the perfect voice for this song. I guess you could say Dream On but I think it would work.

Actually, when I'm at the bottom I make sure to get back to the top
miles above but don't let me break you !!
A helter-skelt e r is a spiral slide.

I do believe this was before the manson affair.
sadly, most people associate this song with the Manson family...Me? It's just a fabulous song from the White Album to be listened to over & over again :D
I GOT BLISTERS ON MY FINGERS!!!

Its a good song but nothing like Zeppelin

Awesome song!!!!
The only time the Beatles did heavy metal, and of course it's better than 90% of all other metal songs.
Pauls bass lines are killer-dille r ! One of the top Beatles tunes in my book.
I can see it being the first Metal song. If someone thinks this is a punk song they don't know their music genres.
i'd like this song better, i think, without the history. still great though
One of the first punk songs.
now as much as i love Zeppelin, the Beatles are THE BAND i mean they broke the mold did it cleanly while letting the world know where they stood. of course Pet Sounds changed the rules first but Sgt. Pepper's is a far superior album. WE ARE NOT WORTHY!!!
dana fuchs version of this sucked this is the best
they made this song as a response to the who's "I can see for miles." They wanted to sound louder and more powerful than the who.

This song makes my head hurt... in a good way. I GOT BLISTERS ON MY FINGERS!!!
You should hear Dana Fuchs' version.
This song sounds almost as if it has influenced Jack White of the White stripes. It is bad a**!

Incredibly good song. Just asking, why's Kiss on the similar songs? Wicked Awesome.

THIS WAS A WICKEDLY GREAT SONG by the boys from liverpool. AND FOR THOSE WHO DONT THINK SO SHAME ON YA!!!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! . ROCK@roll will never die cransom1 08
Hi Melissa,

I don't care about the song, Because it's a really loud Beatles song. There was the sound effects of the police sirens is heard for the fade out/in on this song. There were a few other loud Paul McCartney songs like "Monkberry Moon Delight" from Ram, and "Beware My Love" from Wings At the Speed of Sound.
