the beatles: help! (released july 1965)

In honor of Thursday’s Cincinnati concert by Paul McCartney, we present a parting shot from The Beatles’ era of pop innocence. It’s tough to say who has the upper hand. John Lennon offers You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away, You’re Going to Lose That Girl and It’s Only Love, three of his most beautifully bittersweet songs. McCartney counters with Yesterday, I’ve Just Seen a Face and The Night Before (all of which he played in Cincy). Toss in George Harrison’s melancholy I Need You and Ringo Starr’s hapless take on Act Naturally and you have a summer portrait of a pop dynasty still under construction.
