'From Me To You' and 'All My Loving' share an ambiguous harmonic progression. Both use a vi resolving to I. But in between those standard chords is a very strange one. It could either be interpreted as a bVI+ or a /b6:
And here's what it ultimately boils down to: Is this progression three different chords (in which case the bVI+ should be used)? Or is it two different chords connected by a chromatic passing tone (in which case the /b6 should be used)? Neither is necessarily "right" or "wrong", they're just different interpretations of the same progression.
Meanwhile, I wrap up the final tour of 2016 tomorrow:

The Beatles: Band of the Sixties
Explore the music of The Beatles in this 60-minute multimedia presentation (part history and part musical analysis) spanning the full 1960's: beginning with the band's seminal visits to Hamburg, continuing through Beatlemania, and concluding with Abbey Road. The program will be supplemented with audio clips of music and excerpts from interviews with the band members.
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
