Help! is the fifth studio album by English rock band the Beatles and the soundtrack from their film Help!. It was released on 6 August 1965. Produced by George Martin, it was the fifth UK album release by the band, and contains fourteen songs in its original British form. Seven of these, including the singles "Help!" and "Ticket to Ride", appeared in the film and took up the first side of the vinyl album.

Help! is The Beatles' fifth studio album and the soundtrack to their second feature length film. The 14-track record includes 10 Lennon-McCartney numbers, 2 from George, and 2 covers ( Act Naturally and Dizzy Miss Lizzy ) – a steady improvement from the cover-padded Beatles For Sale. The whole Beatle thing was just beyond comprehension. I was eating and drinking like a pig and I was fat as a pig, dissatisfied with myself, and subconsciously I was crying for hel. hen Help! came out, I was actually crying out for help. Most people think it’s just a fast rock ‘n’ roll song. I didn’t realise it at the time; I just wrote the song because I was commissioned to write it for the movie.

Help! is the fifth studio album by English rock band The Beatles. Produced by George Martin, it serves as a soundtrack to the band's film of the same name, and contains fourteen songs in its original British release.

The striking album front cover features The Beatles making semaphore signals but these do not spell Help! The album went immediately to n. in the British charts remaining there for a total of nine of its 37 weeks in the Top Twenty. Yet again in the US, things were different. Another soundtrack album was released which contained all the songs from side one of the UK album plus six instrumental pieces scored by Ken Thorne. It resulted in another US 1 album, which enjoyed a nine week stay during an overall chart run of 42 weeks.

Considering that Help! functions as the Beatles' fifth album and as the soundtrack to their second film - while filming, they continued to release non-LP singles on a regular basis - it's not entirely surprising that it still has some of the weariness of Beatles for Sale. Again, they pad the album with covers, but the Bakersfield bounce of "Act Naturally" adds new flavor (along with an ideal showcase for Ringo's amiable vocals) and "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" gives John an opportunity to flex his rock & roll muscle.

The Beatles' fifth official UK album release, Help! was the soundtrack to the group's second feature film. It contained 14 songs: 10 by Lennon-McCartney, two more by George Harrison, and a further two cover versions. Lennon's writing for the Help! LP continued the inward reflection first explored on Beatles For Sale, with the title track speaking of his insecurity during the peak of The Beatles' fame.

Beatles For Sale, The Beatles’ 4th UK album, had been a real low point for the band, with 6 covers and a pervasive feeling of weariness apparent on the album. Several of the songs reflected a dark mood and musically, the album was heavy with C&W influences. Constant touring in a frenzied maelstrom of hysteria in Europe and the US, unending press attention and public appearances had taken a toll. As a film, HELP! was, on the face of it, a continuation of A Hard Day’s Night, but in reality, none of the Beatles could be bothered with the production. Lennon felt they were extras in their own movie and it was basically a pointless plot filmed in expensive locations.
