'Ultimate Classic Rock's' article on the track which includes George stating in 1977 that Paul played bass on it yet in 1995 during the 'Anthology' series that he did.

This song has grown on me quite a bit.. While I still maintain its one of the worse tracks on Rubber Soul , it's got a very cool groove, guitar solo and I adore the piano in the chorus. The lyrics are goofy which sometimes puts me off, but it's still a very fun song all round.

I think the lyrics are brilliant -- definitely one of the highlights of the album.

It's a good way to open it for sure, but I will admit I spend a lot of time thinking about Rubber Soul with Day Tripper and We Can Work It Out opening the two sides rather than Drive My Car and What Goes On .

My mum has the US release on vinyl that opens with I've Just Seen A Face , and I think it has the same effect. Loud, happy, fast paced. Both are good openers. I think Day Tripper could work, too.

I think it’s one of the best instances of Paul and John sharing vocals. Not as good as We Can Work It Out , which is probably the most famous example given the contrast of personalities, but it’s still a collaboration I really enjoy. I have Drive My Car as part of a Beatles CD playlist and have heard it a LOT.

I see I've Just Seen A Face as more of a Help ! era track, whereas the Day Tripper /We Can Work It Out single preceded Rubber Soul

Ringo's drumming is stellar...  The Studio Staff captured a real good drum sound here...  It is Ringo who's driving on this record...:-)

Yeh, I know, it kind of surprised me when I first heard it, but I got used to it.

Don't forget Paul, his bassline perfectly compliments the drumming.

Somehow, my opinion on this song has completely shifted. I used to pretty solidly dislike it and thought of it as one of the worst songs on Rubber Soul , but it's grown on me solidly since then. The music (which in my defence I always liked) is pretty unique for the band, with awesome bass guitar and piano playing. The lyrics were the part I disliked most, but I've since come to appreciate them as sort of a character study of an ambitious young woman making her own way in the world, which is a pretty awesome thing to write a song about in 1965.
