It means someone is hooked on someone, like a tight grip emotionally.

In You Really Got A Hold On Me the singer wants to walk "i want to leave you, dont want to stay here, dont want to spend another day here" but cant "i want to split now, i just cant quit now" because he loves her, even tho he doesnt really like her.

 

The writer was an American called Smokey Robinson who was in a band called The Miracles before going solo. John and the other 3 Beatles were massives fans of their work. All Ive Got To Do, another song on With The Beatles, was a nod of appreciation to Smokey.

hello ,

I want to know the meaning of this part of Get Back Lyrics :

All the girls around her say she's got it coming

But she gets it while she can

...They've forgotten all about God He's the only reason we exist...

Would agree with you Joe. During the Get Back sessions as they are running thru an early take of Get Back Paul sings "all the girls around say she's got it coming, but she gets it while she can" and John gives out a very knowing laugh "hey, hey, hey, hey".

Since I was searching around for threads that mention interpretations of songs, I came across this one.

@Von Bontee has this in a post above about the meaning of Roll Over Beethoven

...classic composers like Beethoven would "roll over in their grave" if they knew what young people were listening to these days.

That's the way I've seen it. I like his interpretation also. See post 12.

@Joe, are you going to share the "roll over"video with your daughter one day...or just let it quietly pass?

...ok, Ludwig would definitely have been a rocknroll fan. He was rocking the early 19th century!

I've been discovering little Beatles-Beethoven parallels recently. Like, the way in the 5th Symphony and the "Appassionata Sonata", the way the third movement of each segues directly into the fourth, just like SPLHCB reprise into ADITL. Or the way the Finale of the 9th self-consciously quotes the previous movements, just like the "You Never Give Me Your Money" melody returning in "Carry That Weight". Also LVB was always kept up with the arts/revolutionary politics/technology, specifically the technological development of the hammerklavier - probly would've loved to have lived to the age of the Moog. And advances in hearing-aid technology. Plus he could go see "Help!" and maybe have a rare belly laugh or two. (Def. could've used one, poor bugger.)
