And I Love Her

One of the more underrated and under-recognised pieces in the Beatles' impossibly vast constellation of stellar songs comes in the form of the carefully poised ballad 'And I Love Her'. Originally found on the historic 1964 mock documentary 'A Hard Day's Night', the Paul McCartney-written composition has a structurally understated but authoritatively melodic feel to it, with its primarily acoustic arrangement, bossa nova-derived underpinning, and defined acoustic-guitar riff. Check out the initial performance of the track, lifted from the middle segment of 'A Hard Day's Night', brilliantly displaying the Fab Four in the finest fettle possible.
