Help! The Beatles Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney; released on single "Help / I'm Down" and on "Help!" album What a song! John's screaming for help, and not for anyone, maybe a girl. The intro and the refrains express the feeling well that if She doesn't help him, he's going mad very soon. The lyrics are helped by the fast tempo, Ringo's cymbals in the refrains, and the high notes sung in the line "Won't you please, please, help me?" and in the intro on the last "Help!" Great one, and the music is quite simple!
