4-star review  from  Roy

don’t know why this was a double A-side. Eleanor Rigby is easily the better song. Yellow Submarine is just a little kids thing.
Every other time they did a double A-side it was because John and Paul were in competition with each other, like when Paul did We Can Work It Out and John did Day Tripper. But Paul wrote both of these, so why didn’t he just pick the better one?
