M??rcio Ivam. (2010, December 8)
"Help" brings a lyric that tell us the John`s state of mind."I`m Down" is the Little Richard inspiration on Paul.His vocal is fantastic.John on the keyboard, is very good.And too George`s solo.Great single!And Ringo drums, is Ringo`s drums.

Both songs are great, but Help! is the better of the two.
