I actually like this song, but c'mon... They should've just called it "Tomorrow"
Oh dear, what can they do?
If you "squint" your ears, it sounds like John.
Same as above.

I remember the first time I heard "Lies" I thought it was a new Beatles single. Positive, in fact, and I wanted to get to the record store to buy it right away. And in fact did go to the store. It should have tipped me off when I couldn't find anything new by the Beatles, but I eventually got around to asking the clerk. He showed me everything he had by the Beatles (which I'd already scoped out on my own, thank you), and not really knowing the song title, I lucked out and threw out "Lies."
"Oh, you mean this?"
"The Knickerbockers, who are the Knickerbockers? No, the Beatles!"
He played the record for me. Not the Beatles after all.
I still love the song.
It's gotta be rock and roll music if you wanna dance with me

As Tears Goes By: I love that song! Anyways, I've heard one or the other, ATGB was written before Yesterday or Yesterday was before ATGB. Supposedly they released it 6 months after Yesterday , so it wouldn't compete. I also read that their manager locked Keith and Mick in a room and told them not to come out till they came up with a song, for I believe before that time they had not written a song. So, I guess because Lennon/McCartney were famous for writing their own songs, their manager wanted to keep up with the competition.
I am On My Own does exactly sound like Baby's In Black at the beginning.
Lies: Sounds like an early Beatles song. Giving the benefit of the doubt a lot of bands or band managers during 64-66ish were trying to capitalize on the Beatle sound or the English sound and look.
Stop! Get a Ticket: Does kinda sound like John. I'd like to point to the word "Ticket".
