Yellow Submarine  is the soundtrack to The Beatles 3rd movie, or first cartoon. it was released mainly as a contractual obligation and seen as the soundtrack to the full length animation of the same name. 

 

This less-than-stellar soundtrack is filled with many quickly thrown together songs, and a couple of previously released tracks, namely: "All You Need Is Love", "It's All Too Much" and "Yellow Submarine" and "Only A Northern Song"

 

The new songs, "All Together Now" and "Hey Bulldog" were neither released as a single. Most feel that "All Together Now" is possibly the worst song the Beatles could have recorded - but at the same time, "Hey Bulldog" is seen as one of the most underrated songs, not only in the Beatles catalog, but of all time. A video was put together for "Hey Bulldog"

 

Note: "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, was included in the film, and heard on the original 1969 8-Track tape, but left off of the soundtrack. It was later re-assigned for the remastered Yellow Submarine Songtrack in 1999 [PICTURED BELOW].

Despite not being on the original 1969 soundtrack, songs appear here from the original film, Yellow Submarine. These tracks were superbly remixed and remastered for this 1999 release, although these masters would not be reissued for the 2009 and 2010 remasters. Most anticipated was the track, "Hey Bulldog", garnering a renewed interest in the song via the video streaming website, YouTube. Ten years later, in 2009, the original 1969 soundtrack would see a new remaster.
