**Dreadful song, and never should have been on Beatles for Sale, but strangely it does have a strange cheesy appeal. Love the organ!

* At one time I totally hated this song but now I kind of like it for the reasons you mentioned. It's not one of the Beatles finest moments but it does have some kind of cheesy appeal.

As per Wikepedia:

'The Beatles had covered the song in their live act for years before it appeared on record. Their recording features Latin-style percussion, prominent vocal harmonies, and, unusually, an organ solo. John Lennon sings lead, with backing vocals from Paul McCartney and George Harrison.

'The Beatles recorded this song across two different days in 1964. The first day was August 14, where they recorded four takes (of which, one and four appear on Anthology 1). They also recorded on October 18, again in four takes, the last two of which showcased McCartney on Hammond organ.'
