Answer of the question “What was the first Beatles song to be longer than three minutes?”
When the Beatles wrote “Ticket to Ride” for their second movie, “Help!” (1965), they took the opportunity to experiment a bit. They were no longer recording songs exactly as they would play them live, rather overdubbing the best takes over a rhythm track.
Ticket to Ride:
The efficient system allowed “Ticket to Ride” to be recorded in about three hours. The Beatles were pleased with the song, and John Lennon later claimed it was “one of the first heavy-metal records.” The song was so successful, it became something of a theme song for the band; their BBC radio special’s title was even changed to “The Beatles (Invite You to Take a Ticket to Ride).”
