In the falsetto line, they actually kinda quoted another Beatle song. Surprised no one picked up on that, unless I missed it. “From Me To You ” has the lines: “If there’s anything that you want, If there’s anything I can dooo…” and the words “I can do” are sung high, not quite falsetto.

I love this song. High energy. Great harmonies.

I never picked up on that @SaxonMothersSon. Great catch.

I love this song, it’s so upbeat and John and George play the exact same guitar part in unison, something The Beatles didn’t often do.

One of my favourites on A Hard Day’s Night . Has a great energy to it. The bridgy section is also awesome a-hard-days-night-john-6

By this song they had turned being ‘Fab’ into it’s own artform. A heavy dose of self parody here. The extreme falsetto Pythonesque. Before that group existed to speak in those tongues. Very funny. Brilliant piece. Talk about being in the groove. No wonder John said he just knocked it off. Gear! ahdn_john_08_gif

Unless Paul McCartney knocks on my door I am unlikely to be impressed.

There is a good few filler tracks on ‘AHDN ‘ and this is one of them but it’s still a damn fine song – which can be said for all the other filler tracks on the album. Most of the big 60’s bands own filler tracks don’t come anywhere close to how good the songs on ‘AHDN ‘ are, the album just blows you away. Compare this to some of the tracks they didn’t record (‘One and One Is Two’ being a fine example of a terrible song, tho it has a kind of so awful it’s good charm to it) and they definitely picked the right songs to record.

I love the falsetto moment.

I’ve been listening to this song recently, watching drum covers on YouTube, and I have to say “Tell Me Why” is a great song! I love the drumming on it, makes me wanna try it when I get home!

I like to use posts here to remind me to have a listen to some old Beatles song I forgot all about — like this one. It is a great song. In a way it’s got that Beatley quality they’d show more later than the other stuff they were doing at that early time.  I like that 3rd change

 
“Well, I beg you on my bended knees
If you’ll only listen to my pleas
(Is there anything I can do?)
‘Cause I really can’t stand it, I’m so in love with you”
 
especially that falsetto singing.
