"Help!"- Artist: The Beatles (McCartney- Lennon)Album: Help! Year: 1965Significance: They wanted to add George's final guitar part but they had used all tracks. They took the four-track master and copied to a new take (this instrumental backing transferred to tracks one and two, three was vocals, fourth was guitar overdub). Record tracks and transfer them to a new tape to add things - bouncing down (adding new layers of sound to the music)."You've Go To Hide Your Love Away"- Artist: Beatles (Lennon- McCartney)Album: Help!Year: 1965Significance: The song demonstrates the increasing influence of Bob Dylan upon John Lennon's songwriting in 1965. Was also the first of their songs since 1962 to feature a session musician."Another Girl"- Artist: Beatles (Lennon- McCartney)Album: Help!Year: 1965Significance: The day before recording began for Help!, McCartney returned to England from Hammamet, a Tunisian resort where he was the guest of the British government. The embassy owned a secluded villa on the coast, which was discreet enough for someone as famous as a Beatle.The villa had a bathroom decorated with Islamic tiles. McCartney composed Another Girl there, with its acoustics perfect for songwriting. Featuring unusually harsh, occasionally smug lyrics Another Girl may have been about McCartney's relationship with Jane Asher.You're Going to Lose That Girl- Artist: Beatles (Lennon- McCartney)Album: Help!Year: 1965Significance: A little shout out to A Hard Day's Night - shows them actually performing unlike most of the rest of the film. On this track, Paul plays bass and piano. Same with Ringo - sometimes they are doing one thing and then another. Physically impossible but the way they have it cut makes it a smooth transition. Showed them in a studio all playing and singing at the same time. Of course this wasn't how they recorded music anymore - they were using studio recording, recording things separately. Had fun filming - they weren't professional artists.Ticket to Ride- Artist: Beatles (Lennon- McCartney)Album: Help!Year: 1965Significance: The first Beatles single to be longer than three minutes, Ticket To Ride was heralded by the music press upon its release as a departure from the group's familiar territory. Certainly its unusual drum patterns and downbeat lyrics were a departure from The Beatles' usual upbeat optimism. Ticket To Ride was the soundtrack to a key scene in the Help! film. Filmed on the ski slopes of Obertauern, Austria on 20 March 1965, it was a forerunner of the music videos which would later become widespread. It also became part of The Beatles' live repertoire in 1965, particularly on their summer tour of America. They played it during their
final appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, and at their Shea Stadium and Hollywood Bowl concerts.Although completed in just two takes, the first of which was a false start, Ticket To Ridewas the first Beatles song to be built from the ground up. Whereas in the past they'd rehearsed and recorded what amounted to an 'as-live' performance of their songs, from February 1965
