Resist Temptation!

Check out this compilation of Beatles knowledge: http://www.stevesbeatles.com/songs/default.asp?sort=leadsinger.

If you click on each song, you'll see a section entitled "What Goes On? Anomalies," which itself was taken from a Beatles user group back during the Golden Age of the Internet. Anyhow, the "Anomalies" section highlight mistakes and accidents that happened during production, due to the Beatles being human musicians - flubbed notes and bad timing - and their recording equipment being righteously analog, with edits that make noises and so forth.

I'll have to keep in mind that The Beatles, one of the greatest bands ever, made mistakes that remain today in their classic songs - it'll keep my head straight from succumbing to the temptation of being totally dominated by Pro Tools, or Photoshop, or Brand X Perfectionizer Doo-Hickey.
