#BLAM!# Any time at all! (doo-doo-da-da-dang)
#BLAM!# Any time at all! (doo-doo-da-da-dang)
Any time at all, all you gotta do is call,
And I'll be there!

A stronger intro to the second side is hard to imagine, really! In fact, it's a great little set-up for the proceedings in general: more of the same, but just a little bit different — Another Side Of A Hard Day's Night...

Another passionate vocal from Lennon: "C to A minor, with me shouting" (to Cynthia again, albeit without realizing it, I wonder?) Nevertheless, it's the distinctly non-shouted verses which make the song so complete, with their marked vocal and lyrical contrast to the chorus:

If the sun has faded away,
I'll try to make it shine:
There is nothing I won't do...

Shifting effortlessly between registers, it's yet another signal of John's growing confidence and competence: as a composer and a performer. The bridging solo was Paul's contribution, his piano perfectly synched with George's guitar, the latter throwing in that impeccably ringing sign-off.
