Formal structure of  "Dig It":
Fade in 0:00-0:15
Full volume 0:15-0:39
Fade out/Speaking 0:39-0:50
Comments: Yet another novelty song with an appropriately novel structure, "Dig It" is an excerpt from a larger jam session. Within it's 50-second framework, there are no verses, choruses, middle 8s, tags, solos, or any other standard formal designation to speak of. I have therefore analyzed it in terms of volume, which neatly divides the track into thirds. We do, however, hear a particular four-chord progression (F, B-flat, C, B-flat) repeated over and over again - a total of 10 times. At the end, overlapping the fade out is Lennon's falsetto Goon-style speaking that simultaneously concludes "Dig It" and introduced the subsequent and title track of Let it Be.
