#156: ‘You Really Got A Hold On Me’- from With The Beatles. Smokey Robinson was one of The Beatles favorites- and here on their second album With The Beatles- they do a cover of one of his early hits. Sung by John Lennon- it is one of the better Beatles covers.

#155: ‘Not A Second Time’- also from With The Beatles their second album. Credited to Lennon-McCartney-it was a John Lennon song. This is the song that music critic [not rock critic-that title really didn’t exist at this point but it soon would]- William Mann of The Times referred to ‘Aeolian cadence’ in the chord changes in the song and that it reminded him of the end of the final movement of Gustav Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde Years later Lennon would say ‘To this day, I have no idea what Aeolian cadences are. They sound like exotic birds.’
