Ticket To Ride

Single Release0 Comments

Ticket_to_RideThe band release Ticket To Ride. The song features a coda with a different tempo that extends the song’s length past three minutes.  Lennon says this double-time section (with the lyric “My baby don’t care”) was one of his “favourite bits” in the song. The single spends 3 weeks at the top of the UK charts. Harrison:

We are always worried with each record. With Ticket To Ride we were even more worried. There’s bound to be a time when we come in at 19 (on the charts). But this ‘number one’ business doesn’t seem to stop — great while it lasts — but now we’ll have to start all over again and people will start predicting funny things for the next one.
