Tell Me Why
« on: January 18, 2005, 04:55:00 PM »

I think Tell Me Why from the AHDN soundtrack is one of most forgotten underrated Beatles classics from the early 60's.  I know it's mostly a throwaway track to most Beatles fans for some reason but it's a good tune.  TMW defines the Beatles of the early 60's with this minor pop gem at the height of Beatlemania.

In the "Hard Day's Night" movie when they sing this song in front of the audience it shows just how good it is! The back and forth vocal harmony is stunning! Tell Me Why gets overlooked due to all the other songs out at the same time!

This and 'Any Time At All' are among my early-Beatles favorite song, too.

I think it ranks with Night Before as one hell of a catchy, underrated gem.

It's a great song. I think the melody was ripped from "Why Do Fools Fall In Love?", though.

I agree. I'd go as far as saying its one of my most disliked Beatle songs ever.
