I'm sure you're all aware, John did write Help originally as a ballad. Interesting to hear, I'm certain.
I actually performed that song in my show ten days ago. Not as fast as the original, but with a mid-tempo bluesy beat to it, and using a couple of guitar voices in combination on my keyboard (one acoutsic, one electric). Worked quite nicely.
Anybody who goes to see a psychiatrist needs their head examining.
