  • Lyrics
  • One of the lesser-known Beatles songs, this was recorded during the Please Please Me sessions, but left off the album. The Beatles re-recorded it for With The Beatles.
  • Paul McCartney: "I can't remember much about that one. Certain songs were just 'work' songs, you haven't got much memory of them. That's one of them." >>

  • Don from Sevierville, TnForrest, the 2nd song, also titled Hold Me Tight, was the first song in the closing medley on the Wings 1973 album, Red Rose Speedway. I actually heard the Wings song first.
  • Nikolai from Los Angeles, CaThis song really could have used a few more takes, everything in it sounds a little sloppy.
  • George from Belleville, NjI think this is a cool pop rock song with a driving rhythm and beat and moves steadily with Paul sounding almost off key at times,but it gives the song an edge to it,something different as you listen to it.
  • Bap from Pittsburgh, PaHave to agree with the "Across The Universe" version. I always liked the song. The version from the movie sung by Evan Rachel Wood kicks butt !!!
  • Catresse from Lawrenceville, GaNot all the songs are based on love lifes...just songs that sound good and are put on albums.
  • Barry from New York, NcA lesser-known Beatles song? I don't think so. Most Beatles fans know this one. It's on a major album and there for everyone to hear. Doesn't get as much FM airplay as some other songs, but I know it well.
  • Dave from Sterling, FlI love the singing on this. What planet are you from? I never heard Mcartney sing quite like this. Its sort of a punk garage band voice. It fits the song perfectly.
  • Brian from Boston, MaTaylor, I guess it's just a matter of personal taste, but I don't know how you can say the vocals in this song are awful.
  • Kayla from Nashville, TnTHE BEATLES RULE AND ALWAYS WILL NO MATTER WHAT!!!
    I LOVE THIS SONG!!!
  • John from Dundee, United KingdomHi Chloe,
    Way before Linda.
    Jane Asher was the 'belle' at the time.
  • Forrest from Rochester, MnPaul wrote two songs called "Hold Me Tight", one for the Beatles, and one as a solo artist, and I used to think he missed the mark on both of them. I never liked the Beatles' "Hold Me Tight" until I heard the "Across The Universe" version. Great!
  • Chloe from Powell, OhI LOVE this song!!! [[: was it about pauls wife Linda?? annd Taylor I dont kno why but I love the vocals on this song!! I guess im just weird....?
  • Taylor from Manchester, EnglandThough the vocals on this tune are awful but the guitar sound is very distorted by 1963 standards.
  • Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumI love the version of "The Treasures". It's produced by Phil Spector and you can find it on his "Back to Mono" cd-box. With Phil Spector every song becomes beautiful, wonderful, top, perfect. Phil Spector is so talented, I love him very much.
