There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no-one compares with you (ooh-ooh-ooh)
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

In my life I love you more

This is one of 3 songs played by live musicians at my wedding over 26 years ago! So needless to say a very special song to me and my wife!

 
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}

on second listening, you are correct  i predict these guys will never do anything of real note or ever influence anyone in anyway  i mean, just look at their ridiculous hair styles

More than an earful, you said? 
It's only a classic.
We're sorry the time taxi forgot to pick you up.

In de '70s we went on holidays to France. In our car we already had a cassetteplayer but we forgot to take our cassettes with us, so we only had 1 cassette: I was still a little child and I heard The Beatles so often that I thought they were French. Still now this song makes me think of that vacation... {#Smile}

 
All that was missing was the French accents {#Cheesygrin}

Everybody in my homeless camp loves this profound and beautiful song, and this entire album...

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.  
My favorite Beatles song.

Johnny Cash sucks.  {#Ass}  His bad singing and lyrics didn't get any better just because he's dead.
George Martin was the quiet genius behind this.
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. 
Johnny Cash's cover of this is stunning.  This one isn't bad either.  
This is my favorite Beatles album really shows their growth as composers.
my favorite song off "buddy holly '65"!!         {#Dancingbanana_2}
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).
.                                                                                                                            What can one say?  They changed everything.

I think not. Nice jumping on the trendy JC bandwagon though.

I can still play this on the guitar to this day...  but when I sing it, I sound like my father—  Elvis Presley...

love this song...  love this album...
 

marvelous...  what a beautiful song...  what a great album...
 
I will thank the Beatles for writing this song, but I will thank Johnny Cash for singing it better than anyone else.


Everybody in my church loves this song soooo much...

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.

Is that is because you are a context-sensitive grammar cop? {#Think} {#Roflol}

OMG, me too.
I love the baroque accords that come from the keyboard in this song {#Sunny}

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!
My favorite album and song by far!!!{#Dancingbanana_2}

For those who love to slag on Ringo, think of how many late-60's ballads ripped off this drum groove


What a beautiful and brilliant song from a truly great album...  love it...
