I'll be the first response here, and mention that I love the call and response with the "yeah!"s. It feels so frantic, in a good way.

A fantastic opening to an album if ever there was one. As soon as the song starts you are carried off on a wave of excitement and the joy throughout the song is so contagious, especially when John sings "you're coming home. You're coming home!". 

It's these kind of songs that blow me away with the Beatles; most bands would have killed for a track as strong and catchy as this for a single yet the Beatles only had it as the opening track of an LP, it wasn't even shoved out on an E.P. like 'All My Loving '. And they never played it live, all we have is a mimed performance on 'Ready, Steady, Go' - and by golly did they struggle to mime to it (tho it is four months after it was first released in the UK).

Love this song - it's the highlight of WTB, if you ask me. All those "yeah!"s - it's almost as if they were defiantly proclaiming themselves the kings of "yeah yeah yeah music", as their brand of rock n roll became derisively known to some establishment folks.  As if "She Loves You 's" 10 "yeahs" per chorus weren't enough - let's do a song with 14 of 'em!

I love this song - mostly the mentioned part "You're coming gome, you're comin' hooooomeeee".

I also like how the WTB starts with this song, (well, let's say they all sing together on this one), then comes John with All I've Gotta Do, then Paul, then George.

Love this song - one of my favorites. Whenever I get a new audio device, this is the first song I play on/through it for testing the sound. IMHO, one of the most underrated song in their canon.

One of the write-ups on 'Blue Jay Way ' (i forget who by) was that whilst "please dont be long" was in relation to dont make George wait too long before folk arrive and he's asleep, it was also a message to the hippies, drop-outs, kiddies etc of the time to not be belong to the (whats the right word) authoritative people of society/older generation* as a whole.

Whether thats true or not is another story.

The Establishment? Should this be in the Blue Jay Way thread? or am I missing something?

It was in relation to the 'it wont be long" post you made. More similar word play.

Heh I didn't notice this wordplay either. But I always noticed the same wordplay in Blue Jay Way ! I've always read it as George feeling that he didn't belong. I think that's why it's a sad song for me.

The interesting thing for me with It Won't Be Long is that the lyric here is sung from the girl's point of view, something that most boys probably miss. The clue is that you hardly expect John to be good as I know I should a-hard-days-night-paul-11

please don't be long could also mean "don't be long in face" which means unhappy - "don't be long (unhappy) for  I will be asleep"

Agree with all of the above. I'm surprised that it's pretty much disappeared; most likely due to its never having been released as a single. Let's see where it ends up on our song ranking.

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)
