Great rock song from ‘Help’ topped Billboard Charts for a week May 22 to 28, 1965
“Ticket To Ride” was recorded in February 1965 and released on April 9, 1965 (19th in the UK) and started a quick climb to the top making #1 on May 22nd.
The song held the top spot for a week. Of course it was #1 in Canada and the UK.
The B-side was “Yes It Is”, a sweet harmony ballad that we loved to snuggle to in the school gym.
For a real laugh, watch Lester’s send-up of the 60s lifestyle “The Knack… And How to Get It
‘Ticket to Ride’ – one of the great rock and roll songs of all time.
It rates #384 on the Rolling Stone Magazine list of top 500 rock songs.
