I've always found the intro the only decent part of the whole song, interesting that you see it the other way round.

Please Please Me: I Saw Her Standing There/Baby It's You

With the Beatles: It Won't Be Long/Little Child

A Hard Day's Night: A Hard Day's Night/You can't do that

Beatles For Sale: Eight Days A Week/Kansas City

Help: The Night before/Dizzy Miss Lizzy (this one's definitely in my top 5 of least favourite Beatles songs)

Right now I can only say one track - Revolution 9 from the White Album. I really can not understand why they put this 8.22 minutes long track on vinyl!???

I wouldn't say it's the best, of course, but not the worst either.

Yip. Its ghastly, i hate hearing it - the only Beatles track I struggle to get thru and want it off as soon as it comes on. I cannot underestimate just how crap I think it is.

Quite brilliantly incredibly Paul almost matched this feat with another track called 'Hold Me Tight'. I doubt another artist has recorded two different songs with the same title and both are atrociously shit. So well done Paul.

Same. As much as I hate to hate any Beatles' song (I can put up with nearly all of them, even if I don't like them), I usually end up skipping Hold Me Tight-- and this is coming from one of those scrupulous anti-skippers. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13
