The song was also featured on the soundtrack for the movie “Help!”
On April 1965 The Beatles score their 7th consecutive UK No.1 with “Ticket To Ride”
Written by Lennon–McCartney, “Ticket To Ride” was first released in 1965 as part of The Beatles 5th album and the soundtrack to their movie of the same name “Help”. The song was issued as a single on April 1965 after the band and their manager, Brian Epstein, selected “Ticket to Ride” and “Yes It Is” to be the A- and B-sides, respectively, of the group’s first single release of the year. It became the Beatles’ seventh consecutive number 1 hit in the United Kingdom on April 22, 1965, and their third consecutive number 1 hit in the United States. On 23 November 1965, the Beatles filmed promotional clips for “Ticket to Ride” and four other songs, including both sides of their upcoming single at the time, “Day Tripper” / “We Can Work It Out”, at Twickenham Film Studios in south-west London. The clip was made for inclusion in Top of the Pops’ round-up of the biggest hits of 1965.
