The Beatles' second movie, released in 1965. This one was in color, unlike the previous one, A Hard Day's Night. Much sillier and less realistic than the first one, it revolves around an Asian fan sending Ringo a ring that is worn by the victims of a human-sacrificing religious sect. (Not that much of a fan, or really naive, maybe.) The Beatles are chased through England, Switzerland, and the Bahamas by cult members and some scientists who want the ring.

The movie was filmed in several locations as a tax shelter, and the Beatles spent most of the time they weren't on camera in their trailers smoking marijuana. The soundtrack album was interesting, though, because their earlier introduction to Bob Dylan had not only turned them on to drugs but to more acoustic-sounding music and this was the first album featuring the sound change.

The movie soundtrack contains (in the British vinyl release and all regions' CD versions):

  1. Help!
  2. The Night Before
  3. You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
  4. I Need You
  5. Another Girl
  6. You're Going To Lose That Girl
  7. Ticket to Ride
  8. Act Naturally
  9. It's Only Love
  10. You Like Me Too Much
  11. Tell Me What You See
  12. I've Just Seen A Face
  13. Yesterday
  14. Dizzy Miss Lizzy
The American vinyl release only contained tracks 1-7, with untitled instrumentals (including some really trippy sitar versions of earlier Beatles songs) making up the rest of the album. Hearing the Indian musicians who played in this movie was what got George Harrison into Indian music by the time future albums were written/recorded. The remaining songs were shuffled onto later releases such as "Rubber Soul" and "Yesterday and Today."
