    My favorite Beatles song!
    I live and breathe all things Beatles and love everything they did and do, but this song to me captures their essence!
    I was 7 years old watching Help when it first came out. I was mesmerized watching them in the studio scene miming this song!
    You just lifted my spirits with this thread!
    Thank you!

    The way the vocals blend in this song is amazing, especially on the chorus where all 3 sing together:eek:! There's harmony...but that special blending is rare the way the harmonics line up. Amazing! And great song craftsmanship too!

    This was my first music I ever "got into". OK, I was like 9 or 10, but my mum gave me her original release Beatles records. Those early songs just spark something inside me. I don't know what it is, but its magical.
    Thx for posting.

    One of my favorites. A true pop-rock masterpiece.

    Used to love this song. Then I lived it, so now, not so much.

    Lived through this one too. Pretty much a sequel song, lyrically.

    My four year old grandson loves the entire Help album, I'm encouraged.

    Another vote here for favorite Beatles song. It’s the archetype for all my favorite Beatles elements. The melody, harmonies, and arrangement - a serious triple threat!

    We certainly have to cherish what we have while we can...

    One of my favorites.... the HELP! movie was my childhood introduction to the Beatles, so it's also a sentimental one

    Lennon's jumps to his falsetto were just so smooth and effortless – and yes, the 3-part blend on the middle 8 harmonies are gorgeous

    My favorite Beatles record. I was born in 1969, so I wasn't around for the Beatles, but my brother and I discovered them in probably '73ish and were consumed with them from then on....Lots of memories attached to this record for me.

    A masterpiece of an album from beginning to end. Lennon was still driving the band, but soon to be equaled by McCartney. Standout track is "Ticket to Ride" for me. A piece of pop perfection.

    Perfection. Born in 1964 and had five older brothers and sisters whose record collections I would raid from the age of seven on. All of the Capitol singles and Lps. All of the Vee Jay LPs ("Beatles vs. The Four Seasons") and Swan singles. They had them all. I would spend hours in basement listening to them on my dinky little fold-out stereo. I wanted to be George Harrison so I got a guitar in 1976.

    One of the best harmonies the Beatles put together. Not anywhere close to Queen's ability in the harmony department but very enjoyable.
