Best Beatles Love Songs – ‘Any Time At All’


5) 'Any Time At All'
From 'A Hard Day's Night' (1964)

How do you best prove your worth to the one you love? According to John, it's by being there to help her through the bad times. 'Any Time At All,' the last of the three songs on this list from 'A Hard Day's Night,' spells this out in terms that are unambiguous and, at times, borderline poetic.

This point is brought home by Ringo's emphatic drum fills that announce the chorus, and reinforced by George's 12-string Rickenbacker riffs. The verse also features one of John's earliest uses of the descending bass line, which would become one of his favorite harmonic devices throughout his songwriting career.
