My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

Whoever wrote ‘Revolution In The Head’ was annoyed at the placement of those two songs due to the “oh la la la” backing vocals.

3 Pauls and a George

Michelle

I need to make sure you see
What you mean to me.

Scared

That the simplest of words won’t come out of my mouth
Though I’m dying to set them free
Trying to let you see, how much it means to me
How much you mean to me
How much you mean to me now

Nothing for Free

I wanna tell you what it means to me
I love you every way and now

I Need You

So, come on back and see
Just what you mean to me

-Ringo – It Don’t Come Easy

“Whats often in your heart is the hardest thing to reach” 

George – The Answers At The End

But Its So Hard

George and his weather phenomena. I wonder if he mentioned the weather more than other Beatles, or if they’re matched? That might be an interesting study. ahdn_george_01

Dunno if it’s been mentioned before (probably has), but it’s notable that on the rooftop, Paul and John first sing “I’d hate to miss the train…”; and then immediately follow that song up with a song all about missing a train!

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.

Bended Knee(s)

Tell Me Why

Well, I beg you on my bended knees
If you’ll only listen to my pleas

Act Naturally

We’ll make the scene about a man that’s sad and lonely
And begging down upon his bended knee

One After 909

I begged her not to go and I begged her on my bended knees

Nothin’ Shakin’

I’m begging for her kisses on a bended knee

Beautiful Dreamer

Beautiful dreamer, come on baby, wake up to me
Can’t you see me baby, I’m down on bended knee

OK, this is kinda cool (if suggestive of wheel-spinning): In ’64 Beatles release three consecutive singles containing a total of *four* songs in which our boys sing of buying rings/things!
