The Heart of Rock and Soul # 656 The Beatles

'Perhaps the truest Beatles single of all, since they recorded it twice, changing not only the music but the message. Although it appears on the White Album as a softened up blues with Lennon announcing 'You can count me in,' the real gem is the 45, with its ferocious fuzztone rock and roll attack and Lennon snarling , 'You can count me out,' not a progressive sentiment but as regards those who went around carrying pictures of Chairman Mao he was right. And Lennon self-righteous could be a wonder to behold.'
