Comments: Another two-part introduction. The first part of this intro is the closest thing to a drum solo on a Beatles track until  "The End" from Abbey Road. This drum pattern is not featured anywhere else in the song except for the coda.
The coda is more developed than most, incorporating an extension of the fourth verse with two additional iterations of the lyrics "what you're doing to me" (2:00-2:08), the guitar lick from the intro and verse (2:08-2:12), a reprise of the drum break from intro (2:12-2:19), and finally the same guitar lick with backing from verse which fades out (2:19-2:30).
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
