As you may have heard, this song recently made its live début. Article from Huffington Post.

From the article:

Paul McCartney made history when he performed The Beatles song "Another Girl" at Japan's Budokan on Tuesday.

So a (former) Beatle is making history. What's new? a-hard-days-night-george-10

This is an underrated song, i love how there's 3 guitar parts going on at the same time, John's Fender, George's acoustic, and Paul's Casino.

This is such a great song, I've fallen in love with it! Apart from the lyrics (paul-mccartney), this song is just awesome. It sounds really relaxed and there is so much groove in there, which probably comes from Paul's bouncing, never resting bassline and Ringo's ride cymbal. The former makes me want to nod my head in sync with the bass because it's so infectious and the latter gives the song an additional brightness, like rays of sunlight on a beach (Gee, I wonder where I did get this association from..a-hard-days-night-george-10). Then there are of course the superb harmony vocals and PAUL'S LEAD GUITAR! Oh, how I love these crazy interspersions he does!

All in all, I really love how jaunty and easygoing and casual this song is and how much groove it has! I sometimes picture the Beatles in a studio and shaking their bodies in some sort of weird dance while playing this song because they are so lost in the groove that their bodies got one with the rhythm. And Paul's lead guitar lines are like random thoughts in a stream of consciousness on top of all the groove.

Certainly a gem on Help ! IMO.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I didn't know Paul did all those little electric guitar fills & frills.  In the movie, it's George, isn't it?  If it is Paul, that means he recorded over for the record.  Some of those fills are almost comically not quite up to snuff, but somehow fit perfectly.  The rhythm guitar with its constant upbeat (or is it a downbeat?) reminds me of the rhythm guitar in that song "Lil' Green Bag".  Paul's bass I notice is playing off that incessant beat of the rhythm quitar, always hitting the *other* beat, enhancing that "bouncy" feel.  And here and there he's hitting three beats in a row so he hits before, on, then after a given beat -- boom, boom-boom, boom (where the 3rd boom is where the rhythm guitar hits).

I also like how the melody keeps sliding into a major 3rd note from a minor 3rd.

I'm with Martha - there's something unspeakably jaunty about this tune. Plus the video is one of my favorites.

Sorry to let everyone down, but I'm not really a fan of this one. Certainly one of the weaker Help ! tracks, along with Dizzy Miss Lizzy and The Night Before .

A fun pop/rock tune. I love the harmonies and the lead guitar on this track. It is also one of my favourite performances from the Help ! film.

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.

I'm not the biggest fan of the song, it just doesn't really go anywhere for me. I think Dizzy Miss Lizzy , You Like Me Too Much and Tell Me What You See are worse though.
