In this topic I'll take the challenge to rank every song from Please Please Me. The result of the ranking depends on melody and catchiness, and "Please Please" let me know your opinion! a-hard-days-night-ringo-15 I will make topics like this later for the other albums.

 

14) A Taste Of Honey

13) P.S. I Love You

12) Misery

11) Chains

10) Anna (Go to Him)

9) There's a Place

8) Boys

7) Love Me Do

6) Do You Want To Know A Secret

5) Twist And Shout

4) Please Please Me

3) Ask Me Why

2) Baby It's You

1) I Saw Her Standing There

Well, this isn't a "ranking" post, but I wasn't sure where else to put it.

Do you think the girl is still with him in "There's a Place" or is guy remembering a time in his past (maybe to the point of being delusional)?

"There is a place,
Where I can go,
When I feel low,
When I feel blue.
And it's my mind,"

When I feel low or blue, the last place I want to go is my mind. I have to get outside myself…fast. If I spend too much time in introspection, I just get lower and bluer. I wish I didn't feel this way. I'd like to be able to keep my own self entertained and happy like the guy in the song seems to be able to do. [end of psychological soap box]

Still together for me.  The second verse is the clincher

I think of you,
And things you do,
Go 'round my head,
The things you said,
Like "I love only you."

So when things get to much John (the songwriter) goes off to his room and remembers/thinks of his girl who loves him, if it was the past it would be "things you did".

But he uses "said" instead of "say". So he has one present tense and one past tense. So that's why I'm on the playground seesaw.

Yeah but when you look back at the moment love is first declared you don't think wow she says I love you you think she said I love you. So its a past tense looking back but still ongoing. Like in Things We Said Today the relationship is ongoing ("someday when we're dreaming, deep in love not a lot to say") but they remember what was said previously ("then we will remember Things We Said Today").

I can kind of see your point.

Do we need a time machine for this?
