No vest needed.  Think what you want.  We all like what we like!

I wonder if Paul knows now that many of those "lonely people" were more contented than he thought?

It seems outrageous to comment or rate this.  So I won't. 
It's a 10 anyway.

I've just done both things.  Bah.

At least Father McKenzie doesn't have to pick up rice anymore, because it's not thrown at weddings 50 years on.

I disagree. I'd argue that none of their catalogue is dated as you suggest. Old perhaps but not dated. Are the works of the great composers dated? It's all a matter of perspective and of course opinion. Even with today's music, one can say that they are dated by your rationale. Music, all of it, is timeless.

I agree with you bb_matt.  As a pre-teen when I first heard this song, it made me afraid of growing up.  I wanted to make sure nobody I knew ended up like Eleanor.  50 years on I realize that such loneliness is not something that can be cured and the Beatles got it right.

For anyone who is truly adventurous, there is this interesting cover by John Denver.  Be advised: It is somewhat distressing...

 
Interesting.  Absolutely.  

It lacks something.....   warmth, coherence of sound, the sonic space strikes me as hastily constructed.   ....  

It is a hard song to cover.  

Youtube automatically went on to another cover by John Denver, Mr. Bojangles.   That one is pretty decent.  Perhaps because the sonic space is so much closer to his core sound.

{#Bananasplit}  Ain't ever given a Beatles song less than a 10, and I don't plan to start now, either.

 
  
The Beatles are my all-time favorite band. The highest score they'll ever get from me is 9. There simply is no such thing as a 10, as defined by Radio Paradise. As well, anyone being objective knows there are a few stinkers amongst all their great numbers (The Word comes to mind). But it's doubtful that'll ever get airplay on RP, so perhaps you'll be able to stick to your guns.
