Video: The Beatles - "Another Girl"

Released in 1965 on the album Help! and included in the film of the same name, this is "Another Girl". This clip from Help! was filmed on Balmoral Island in the Bahamas.

Notice John sitting in on drums for a while, and Paul occasionally "playing a girl" instead of his bass guitar. Oh, and George throwing rocks at an oblivious Ringo.

Video: The Beatles - "I'll Get You"

In this video, The Beatles lip-sync to "I'll Get You", the B-side of their 1963 single "She Loves You". John Lennon and Paul McCartney sing in unison for most of the track, with the occasional switch to harmony.

McCartney recalls that he and John wrote the song at Lennon's Menlove Avenue home where he stayed with his Aunt Mimi. This was a rare place for them to write together because of Mimi's disapproval of the Beatles.
