I've been listening a lot to this song lately. I play it on repeat mode in my car from home to work and back.
A little gem created almost on the fly. Pure example of how good and talented the Beatles were.
My fav song in "With the Beatles" no doubts.

This song is probably my least favorite song that isn't either super short (ex Her Majesty ) or lacks any instrumentation from any Beatle (ex She's Leaving Home and Good Night , although I do like Eleanor Rigby ), there's just nothing special about it, not that it's bad, but more so bland and unimportant, although to be fair this commonly happens to the 2 of 2, such as with Simpson And Delilah or the 2nd cut scene of Ms. Pac Man or with Queen's Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon (the reason I put this one here is because Sheer Heart Attack was their first popular album and since the follow up to that was A Night At The Opera, I call this one a 2 of 2), the dullest song on the dullest album.

Everything on it is special to me a-hard-days-night-george-10
The start-and-stop rythm, the fact that it was arranged during the recording session, the bass playing chords, john's singing...there is a vibe troughout the song that makes me feel good.
A quite like it better than , say, "Hold Me Tight " or "Little Child " or "All My Loving "

I was listening to this last night and admiring it very much -- the stuttery rhythm is just out of this world -- and I was listening to those drums and all of a sudden I had this very tangible urge to slip into the recording, into 1963, and just give Ringo a huge hug for creating such awesomeness with that hi-hat and snare. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

'Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon' is a brilliant song, so unlike your regular Queen song. 

I love 'AIGTD' and everything about it.

The episode 'Simpson and Delilah' from 'The Simpsons' is one of my favourites ever in TV.

Those things aren't bad, just not as good as their peers, at least in my opinion. Also, is there a such thing as a normal Queen song, I mean they messed around with just about everything, glam rock, progressive rock, hard rock, rock, vaudeville, big band, baroque pop, pop rock, synth rock, the only genre they didn't dive into that existed before Freddie's death was rap and it's a good thing too.

Back on topic, did John use an acoustic or electric guitar on this song.

Queen are generally thought of as a rock band, probably due to their early material, but you are right as to what is your regular Queen sound as they moved into different genres through the years.

Maybe not 'the only genre'. What about folk or country or jazz or the hundreds of types of world music? And taking mild influence from certain genres and using them on pop songs =/= writing in a genre.

A normal Queen song would be bad and annoying. 

All I’ve Got To Do has great harmonies. An underrated number for sure.

The song takes me to a place of innocence and fun. Pure escapism.

Me too. This is one of the best examples of how great a singer John really was. His voice just sounds... acrobatic on this one.
