Music Monday - The Beatles - The Night Before (Official Video)

Do you have a favorite Beatles song?  Mine changes from time to time, but I usually come back to "The Night Before."  This song was featured in the movie Help! (1965).  It was written by Paul McCartney, and he also sings lead in the song.   It has the urgency of a fresh break-up, with lyrics like:

"We said our goodbye, ah, the night before
Love was in your eyes, ah, the night before
Now today I find you have changed your mind
Treat me like you did the night before."

I also love the interplay of guitar and vocals on this song.

How about you -- do you have a favorite Beatles song?  I hope you'll tell me about it in the comments below.

I really love "And Your Bird Can Sing." Somehow, it's simultaneously different and more complex than most songs, both in lyrics and music, yet it's comfortingly, wonderfully familiar.

Hi Beth, I love "And Your Bird Can Sing," too. I think it is my favorite song on Revolver. I love your comment about it being "comfortingly,wonderfully familiar" - well said!
