I think their songwriting improved somewhat compared with this?

Agreed.  And I ain't got nothin' but love, babe, doesn't quite gel when it comes from the land of Bill Shakespeare.  And that hand clap rhythm was wearing out its welcome, even from the Fabs.  Still, it's f-u-n.

yeah it don't make any sense 
Oasis has no connection to the Beatles at all

 
Dunno about that, I think the Sitar at least ties em together., lol.

I remember Liam claimed to be John Lennon reincarnated,  even though he was 8 when John was murdered.

The perfect sing-along happy pop song. Always loved it.
Grandpa, come listen, they're playing your music on the internet!

Grandpa: Internet? What's that? 
I first heard this on Meet The Beatles as a young and impressionable lad. Had it on 8-track, too! Sang along with this often! Harmonies!

Wrong number of days in the week. Downvoted.

I am amazed that after 50 years this still sounds fresh
this is a great album too Harrison plays some great rock-a-billy to Lennon's songs 
Nice
Fun memories of listening. But it's not one of my fav Fab 4 tunes. Simple beat — but that bass is a fine thing — and they sure mangle "ain't got nothin' but love, girl" English
{#Cool}
nice!

I agree.  And I have been changing the station of using the PSD button every time I hear Beatles

 
We could go further and use the PSD every time we hear a song influenced by the Beatles.

But then you'd basically be listening to FOXNews. 
Sounds corny now but it sure was cool back then.

Cool song, but a bit overplayed, isn't it?

 
Nope. One play in 30 days is severely under-played.

No. Just no. Extreme twaddle. 
Everybody in my alien space craft loves this song...  time flies when we're having fun...
Maybe not one of their very stellar best. Ain't got nothin' is not exactly Shakespeare. And that hand clap track. Hold me love me. Well, OK, if you're 18.  Still, that bass line. Lennon singing like he means it. The harmonics and rhythm. And sing along perfection. I'm going along, 8 times a week.

There's only 7 days in the week mate, no more, no less. It's the law.
