The Beatles -- I've Just Seen a Face

"I've Just Seen a Face" is a song by The Beatles. It appears on their 1965 UK album Help!, although in the United States it and "It's Only Love" first appeared on the Capitol version of the Rubber Soul album.
"I've Just Seen a Face" was written by Paul McCartney (credited to Lennon/McCartney) and features McCartney on vocals. Before its release, the song was briefly titled "Aunty Gin's Theme" after his father's youngest sister, because it was one of her favourites. It is one of the very few guitar-based Beatles songs that lacks a bass track.
According to music critic Richie Unterberger of allmusic, "Several songs on 1964's Beatles for Sale, as well as "I'll Cry Instead" from A Hard Day's Night, had leaned in a country and western direction. But 'I've Just Seen a Face' was almost pure country, taken at such a fast tempo that it might have been bluegrass if not for the absence of banjo and fiddle." Music critic Ian MacDonald said the up tempo song "lifted the later stages of the Help! album with its quickfire freshness." Capitol Records chose it as the lead track of the US edition of Rubber Soul, with the intent of giving the album a strong folk sound in step with the then-current Folk Rock movement.
