Best Song (A Hard Day's Night)

I'm not a fan of this album either, although I love the movie! I guess You Can't Do That is my favorite.

Lots of good ones here. 'Can't Buy Me Love' edges them out for me, though. Great lyrics, melody, energy. A top track.

Great album, very energetic. The title track is my favourite here, and probably my favourite early Beatles song.

And I Love Her.

I'm such a Paul girl....

Though I also really love Things We Said Today, I'll Be Back, Anytime At All, and If I Fell.

'If I Fell' is amazing. Particularly in mono.

 Hi guys !! yes , I chose "If I fell" as my favourite track . John,s ability to "cut to the chase" with his lyrics was a gift that endured throughout his career as a musician . John,s hard man image takes one on the chin here as his soft under belly is exposed and we are given a fly on the wall experience as John lays it on thick to some would be lover or other ! In many ways a precursor to "Norwegian wood" which was a retrospective overview  of some brief liason that perhaps failed to deliver on it,s initial promise .

Its too hard to pick a 'best' I like them all.

But it seems If I Fell is the winner, and I agree John cut through with those lyrics, beautiful melody and harmonies.

'If I fell in love with you, would you promise to be true, and help me understand,
cos Ive been in love before, and Ive found that love was more, than just, holding hands....'

those are great lyrics, with a deeper meaning than songs like She Loves You

Talk about a monumental task! The only reason I chose "If I Fell" instead of "And I Love Her" is that it has always amazed me how perfectly Paul and John's voices blend together in it. It was a long time before I realized that the lead was shared in this song and when I did it blew me away! Of course "And I Love Her" has some of the most touching lyrics ever. Sigh.... LOL

Although I love the movie, it's not my favourite album. Though there are some good Songs, like "If I fell".

My favourite is "Anytime at all" because I love the the drive and the voices of Paul and John on it.

Lots of great songs, but I Should Have Known Better takes it for me.  The fun level and energy with the lyrics and tone John sings with is awesome. 

"That when I tell you I love you..."  Gets me every time.
