26 years ago my wife and I were wed as well and this song was our first dance. Together we hear it randomly either on RadioParadise or elsewhere (on rare occasions I listen to other sources) about every six months creating special random moments. Earlier this year my daughter surprised us by dedicating her rendition of this song to us in a public performance. Not a dry eye in the house. My wife seated next to me wept but remarkably was still able to provide physical support in my moment of need.{#Cry}{#Clap}{#Heartkiss}

I have never said a band the caliber of The Beatles was overrated whether I like them or not. Maybe someone like Pearl Jam, but that would mean you were equating PJ with The Beatles something that I would not recommend.

 
Look at you get all high and mighty standing on principle now!

What about Smashing Pumpkins?  Beatles were over-rated.  That does not mean they weren't a great band, it just means a bunch of delusional followers have closed their ears and minds to all reason and blow it all way out of proportion.

Wow, how they really could SING! Their ability to get an orchestra's worth of sound into every song was perhaps unmatched. Endorphins!

This was a bit of a challenge for Ringo's drumming ability, but he did a stellar job.

This is a delightful pop song.  It's aged with me in ways I did and didn't imagine. 

I put it on a mix tape (dating myself) duplicated for friends at my high school graduation.  I'm not a facebooker, but when I hear tracks from that tape (and various others) I wonder what became of the recipients I've lost touch with.  That's a piece of the song right there (except for the facebook part).

Johnny Cash version is different but also most excellent-to-outstanding...  

 
Johnny crushes this version (sacrilege!). But the years on his voice give every line much more meaning. He takes it from a pretty good pop ballad to transcendent.

I remember asking my mom about this song...trying to wrap my head around how he could say, "there is no one compares with you," and I was pretty darned sure my English teacher at school wouldn't condone such grammar...but then that same new teacher proceeded to turn and let us be turned on to all kinds of Beatles songs...Life is an exquisite tapestry, a matrix of magnetic magic, a swirl and twirl of energies, and it sure is a lot more fun to DANCE and SWOON to it than not...and RP affirms!
