  • I always thought that the theme song to the old TV show "Room 222" (about a high school) sounded awfully close to this, possibly even copied. I don't know who got the credit for writing the theme song....should have been Lennon/McCartney.

  • Definitely my favorite, always.
  • Love this one! ♥
  • Possibly one of the greatest songs I have ever heard. Absolutely perfect.
  • Love the wind instruments: glorious music
  • This is one if not my fave Beatles song.
  • One of my favourite Beatles songs
