H eavy things afoot here, but mostly a lot of tapping toes as “Help!” topped the US and UK charts. The B side is one of their best nonalbum entries, although oddly it doesn’t seem to have charted as so many Beatles B sides do. Paul’s vocals on “I’m Down” are scorching. “Help!” of course served as the title track for the band’s next album/film, and the elpee version included a montage of sounds at the beginning if memory serves (and, in my case, it usually stops serving after 4 pm).
