She Loves You is possibly my favourite Beatlemania-era song. It has everything – great vocals, surprising chord changes (I.e. the move to Cm in the chorus), an understated lead guitar input from George…

It also has a melancholic aspect which I love, particularly “you know it’s up to you”. I don’t think the Beatles necessarily ‘got better’ as they played throughout the years…even though they did! It’s just what type of sound you prefer. The energy of the early years is so exciting and STILL sounds fresh.

This is certainly one of my favorite Beatles songs. A simple rock number, but with great melody and harmonies, filled with optimistic teenage spirit. “She loves you yeah yeah yeah”, not meaningful at all, but sounds just perfect.

I’m reading Beatles Monthly issue 6.

They printed the lyrics to She Loves You .

20200206_153536.jpgImage Enlarger

They have “yeh, yeh, yeh.”

I’ve always known it as “yeah, yeah, yeah.”

Do we know how the Beatles originally thought of the spelling of the word? a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

In the Hunter Davies biography it’s spelt “yeh”. I always thought of it as “yeah” but I guess the former makes more sense with the Liverpudlian accent.

He seemed a little haggard, but it did not slow him down,
he was humming to the neon of the universal sound.

This probably sounds crazy saying this about such a classic song, but I always thought She Loves You was kind of underrated.  I Want To Hold Your Hand is the one people associate with Beatlemania, and it had the big sales and broke the band in the US and all.  But I think She Loves You is the better track, it’s heavier, better lyrics, and the one song I associate most with the Beatlemania era.  Great short drum into.  And it has that iconic “Yeah, yeah, yeah” that people associated with the Beatles and rock music of the day so much.

Well, it’s very much of its time, but it’s still really fun and generally goes down great when played in social occasions.

I feel as though this song is never remembered as good until it’s heard again.

Why was ‘She Loves You ’ nominated for Best British Single for 1977’s Brit Awards? It didn’t win but seems strange to find it there. There was the reissue of the back catalogue, including all the singles, but that seems a very poor reason. 

Pesky Beatles. Can’t read a wiki article on an awards ceremony that started 7 years after they split without them appearing in one of the categories.

Who knows why they choose She Loves You specifically – there are better singles released between 1952 and 1977 by the Beatles and other artists they could’ve picked. 

I’m more intrigued about who L.G. Wood is. S/he was awarded the award for outstanding contribution to British music and yet they’re not deemed famous enough to have a Wikipedia article written about them.

I was only looking at the Single of the Year list, turns out that as it was the first year it was to mark the 25 years of the Queen’s reign, hence why ‘Pepper’ was the best album.

 

L.G. Wood was to do with EMI and here he talks Beatles.

As an early teen in the mid-70’s, I looked up to my older sister for all things Beatle related.  Imagine my swelled ego when I sang “Pride can hurt you too” and she said “OH.  I thought it was ‘Probably wouldn’t hurt you to…” paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

holy crap I didn’t mean to thank this that many times a-hard-days-night-paul-4 but yeah, these days I kinda feel that way about the Beatles generally. Not that I don’t think they’re good when I’m not listening to them, but it’s more of a passive thing than when I actually listen to a Beatles album and I remember, like in my gut, how good they are.

Indeed. It’s how they make you feel in the moment you’re listening to them. I get a lot of my inspiration from them while actually listening and not just remembering the songs in my head. A lot of my creative spirit and sense of fun is especially supercharged by The Beatles. Huge nostalgia hit too that is like a warm blanket.

Ringo is KEY here, with his acclaimed play-to-the-song abilities. He’s embedded himself in the very hooks of the song; every time the front line is singing “yeahyeahyeah,” or the title, Ringo does something interesting, sonething EMPHATIC, to punctuate or reply to the narrative. (“She said she loves you-” BOOM! a-hard-days-night-ringo-13) Plus he has to open with a solo fill, and other tricky things.
