I have been pondering this question about the oooo that ends the song (starts at 2:16 in the video) for some time now.
Have you ever contemplated what the meaning behind it sounds like? I'll put my take on it in a spoiler in case you want to answer before seeing my thoughts on it.
It seems to me like John has been singing that song to himself, but then realizes other people have heard what he is saying. It is like he wants other people to know the thoughts in his head, but he isn't supposed to let people know. It is like he did something naughty. People shouldn't know he needs help, but he he doesn't care that he let them know. It fits the song so perfectly.

He regret its fast tempo, but to me, I think the unusually frantic pace illustrates what the song was trying to say even more. Behind the screaming fans dancing to it, it was a frank plea for help hidden in plain sight.
