Part 4 of our Revisiting The Beatles series dives into Beatles For Sale, their December 1964 release. We talk the weirdly fascinating first three songs, seeing the legendary band in a “burnt out” state, and Lennon’s surprising appreciation of Ringo.


This quote is referenced, but I wanted to bring it up exactly. Out of “Many Years From Now,” by Barry Miles: “Looking back on it I think songs like ‘I’m A Loser’ and ‘Nowhere Man’ were John’s cries for help.”
