"Rain" by The Beatles.

OK, more Fabdom: This '66 Lennon composition was released as the B-side to "Paperback Writer" and has been called "The Beatles' finest B-side". Inspired by the foul weather they encountered in Melbourne. Recorded during the "Revolver" sessions, it marks The Beatles' first use of "backward vocals" recording and the group's first music video. Ringo considers it his "best drumming ever" and Paul's complex bass line on the '64 Rickenbacker 4001S is, in my opinion, his opus magnum on bass. It peaked at #23 and is ranked #463 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time.

Yesterday's answer: "Along Comes Mary" by the Association. ... just like The Stones' "Lady Jane".​ch?v=sYJhhKSXOBo​ch?v=CzJbRUEzl3Q
