  • Love the way John sings "'Cause we love you Mr. Moonlight" ;)
  • Great!
  • some primo Lennon vocals here... and where did the idea that this is a hated song come from, anyway? literally every post below praises it.
  • Yeah I think this is the weakest song on Beatles For Sale. It's not bad by any means, though.
  • love the 60s organ!

  • Love Johns voice.

  • Worst Beatles song ever? Not even the worst Beatles for Sale song. [3]
