"You Like Me Too Much" and "Tell Me What You See". Nothing outstanding, but I wouldn't say that they're bad.

I was listening to Help! this morning (British LP) and I'd forgotten that these two existed. Odd album, especially if you look at it on its own, rather than as part of the film (Here in the U.S. it was released as a soundtrack, the B-side songs were relegated to Beatles VI and Rubber Soul, replaced with instrumental cues from the film).

I really like the chorus in "You Like Me Too Much".

"Tell Me What You See" always sounded Buddy Holly-esque to me, if you took away the electric piano, it almost sounds like it'd be more at home on Beatles For Sale than Help!

You Like Me Too Much is a bit lightweight but I agree with you, the chorus and the vocal harmonies, I always liked.

Tell Me What You See was a "work song" but not bad. Even It's Only Love, which is one of their lightest and weakest originals, isn't bad. I certainly never skip those tunes.

I always forget just how the good the HELP! album is until I listen to it again. I enjoy every song on it ('Ticket To Ride' is in my top 5) including the 2 you mentioned.

I dig George's accent – it really doesn't get hidden when he sings and 'You Like Me Too Much' is no different…

You've tried before to leave me
But you haven't got the NUHV
To walk out and make me lonely
Which is all that I DESUHV

Adore Its Only Love (despite John despising the recording). Slightly less adulation for the other 2 but still greatly fabulous pop songs.

You Like Me Too Much seems to me to just never break, never deviate or change for the 2 1/2 mins or whatever length it is, not even when it goes into the chorus, but it does. The solo is amazing fun.

Love how Tell Me What You See appears to be stopping after the end of each chorus before the electric piano starts back in followed by Ringo beating the living daylight out of his drums.

Have said before that for me Help! is the perfect Pop album, its like they had finally conquered that market and could now move on to Rubber Soul and blew the doors off of how popular music was viewed at that time. Revolver completely demolished it and Pepper built some entirely new world.
