In needing a customary Ringo track, Paul, with help from J…

By the time The Beatles were writing songs for their first film A Hard Day's Night, John was absolutely on fire.

*NOTE - Audio has been corrected! Apologies!*There's no shortage of songs in the Beatles' catalog in which the listener can project their own lives and stories into the lyrics.
