The Beatles 100 Greatest Songs: #91 “Every Little Thing She Does”

Some of my favorite Beatles songs are the ones that display the most collaboration. "Every Little Thing" is a great example since it’s essentially a Paul song sung by John.

It also served as a signature occasion to show the world that the Beatles were not afraid to reach beyond the trappings of a traditional 3- to 4-piece band, what with the compelling use of the timpani (by Ringo) in the song’s chorus.

Though as much as a fan as I am of the band Yes, I can't say that their take on this tune did much for me.
