Hey Jude runs for 7mins and 11secs and at the time of release was the longest single to top the British charts.
The first truly eclectic album by the Beatles. To me the best song on the whole album was 'I need you'. You've got to hide your love away is also a stand-out.
Acutally, thsi si my 2nd or 3rd favourite Bealtes album. Harrison is the star for me, writing two excellent songs and the album is full of unusual guitar tones and acutally Ringo adds some interesting rhtyhms. Like Please Please Me, this album has such an uninhibited feel and it really moves.
I also like the Piano. I'll list my favourite songs, 1. I need you, 2. You like me too much, 3. Tell me what you see, 6.
It's only love [one of the most fantastic heart-break ballads I've ever heard Sam oxalicman hotmail.
The thing is I heard their most four popular tracks of this album Help! And let me tell you: Ringo's style, It's only love is not ok, You like me too much is boring, Tell me what you see is not rocking at all, I've just seen a face, nice guitar intro yesterday's style but the country song that follows 'til the end is very old and out of style even for its time, and finally Dizzy miss Lizzy is a poor amercian remake that the Beatles always do with american songs They are only good!
Though I liked the four most-popular tracks, I think this album is a rip-off. But John Lennon quote it as a good rock album. Maybe because it has Ticket to ride which is innovative for its time. In my opinion, Rubber Soul onwards are must-buy albums.
I give a 5 for Help! John Cox zoz ntlworld. I've seen the film of course many timesbought the T-shirt etc, but I've never actually listened to the "H! So I wasn't quite prepared for the treat I had in store as I put on my new CD for the first time today.
The CD sleeve is done just like the album cover. Side-1 has seven tracks from the film including "Help! Easy to see where the America's so called answer to the Beatles got their sound from.
Of the 5 I'd never heard "Act Naturally" sung by Ringo is probably a little weak, but hey, it's still great fun.
And Ringo himself seems to be having a ball signing the song. It brought a smile to my face. But hey, The Boxer is such a great song in it's own right let's just say that Paul-S borrowed a little bit from Paul-M when he was composing his classic song.
Indeed the whole album leaves you feeling upbeat and! Yes, it's taken me 42 y!
I might even need to revise my top 5 Beatles album list now. It's a great little album. I can't understand why reviewers downgrade this LP somewhat.
Ears still ringing to the strains of Revolver and AR I guess.

The Beatles’ masterpiece has always been been the deepest mystery in their story—their wildest, strangest, most experimental, most brilliant music. Readers Comments Alan Brooks [email protected] PLEASE PLEASE ME is a good start, but it is my least fave fab recording-- it's just too simple.
'There's A Place' is very good, and the rest of the CD is competent; however, there's a reason the Beatles didn't become world famous until they weren't great composers until that year.
Hey, Jude, don't make it bad, Take a sad song and make it better. Remember to let her into your heart, Then you can start to make it better.
Hey, Jude, don't be afraid, You were made to go out and get her.4/5(14). Reviews, essays, books and the arts: the leading international weekly for literary culture. It will become clear from a detailed examination of "Hey Jude" just how neatly the two halves complement each other, and from what simple musical materials they are constructed.
The song-like half of the track is cast in the standard two-bridge model with one verse intervening, albeit without an intro.
