The Beatles, "Help"

This was a big jam for me when I was a little kid. I loved that song and loved all the Beatles movies. I would watch them whenever I stayed him sick from school. They had a big impact on me growing up. I sort of feel like all Beatles songs are unique. They didn't stick to a formula, which I loved. They were always trying to do something new. "Help" is like that for me. Everyone in the band was so naturally charismatic. They were such stars. I don't know how they had all that confidence as 20-year-olds. You couldn't groom kids to be that good. They were so funny onstage and on camera, always joking and looking cool, but also goofy at the same time, which is the perfect combination, always.
