Nothing else comes to mind. Dylan did mishear "I get high" in 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' but i doubt that counts.

I thought we had a discussion on this song. ahdn_paul_01

Anyway. I love this track. Yeah the lyrics are lazy and John detested it (listening to him play on the radio in 1974 is a delight) but there is a gorgeous innocence thought-out. The way John cannot take the lyrics seriously and sings them so in verse two is a treasure well worth discovering over and repeatedly.

I just love the way John sings that last line: 'Yes it's so  hard, loving you, loving yooooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu........' his falsetto is gloriously trippy. 

I do really like this song-- it might possibly be my favourite off the album, along with You Like Me Too Much and I've Just Seen A Face. What's funny is that I didn't think much of these three when I first heard them, but they've grown on me. 

I listened very carefully and I heard about four different guitars, though one of my Beatles books says they overdubbed six. It could well be. All I know is that the rhythm is one of John's finest.

The outtake on 'Anthology 2' gets a bit of a kicking from some saying its pretty much filler and not interesting enough. I love it as its such a fun outtake and whilst you can hear John really is not enamored by it in the slightest its still a great vocal.

 

Oh for goodness sake, Apple/EMI/Universal have blocked the damn thing on youtube even tho you cant stream it anywhere. They really are petty idiots.

It's been said before, but... the Beatles' filler album tracks are the equivalent of other bands' singles. Witness:
I Wanna Be Your Man a-hard-days-night-john-6 

Wouldn't go so far, there are a few Beatles fillers that if they had more time and more options wouldnt have been released - or if the 'White Album' had been a single album. It doesnt mean they are necessarily bad songs; 'Little Child' and 'When I Get Home' are blatantly there to fill space but still great pop songs which I love hearing.

 

Found it. At 2:15 you can hear a listener request John play 'Its Only Love' whilst he is guest DJ and he openly says its the only song he did he dislikes and that if they play it he would have suffer (part one is here, both are brilliant to listen to as John is having so much fun).

Technically John is correct. Its more than likely John fell into old habits of getting such details wrong but there is the chance John had grown familiar with the US 'Rubber Soul' having been living in the US for a couple of years.
