3-star review  from  J Smith

Another piece of happy pop from their early career. Not quite as good as the one that came before – She Loves You – but still far better than anything else that other bands were releasing at the time.
I think this song marked a bit of a watershed, because the songs that came after left behind the corny 60s pop feeling that is so obvious from this, and became a little bit more original – songs like All My Loving and Help! .

But the importance of this song to the Beatles career goes further than anything else because of the impact it had on the Americans.

5-star review  from  Dezrez

This is the song that broke the Beatles in America great vocals by John and Paul and some great guitar work by George it was also the Beatles first number one record in America.
