Things We Said Today by The Beatles – ****

First released: 1964

Yet another great tune from the non-soundtrack side of "A Hard Day’s Night". A 1964 radio version appears on 1994's "Live at the BBC".

McCartney later performed a great live duet with Hamish Stuart for his 1991 "Unplugged" special, but it was strangely left off the album. It did end up as a b-side track for the "Biker Like An Icon" CD single. I like the minor key verses the best and how they smoothly transition back to the major key verses. A different live version was performed on 1990’s "Tripping the Live Fantastic".
