Cover version?[edit]

I've recently heard a song by Sugarloaf called "Don't Call Us, We'll Call You" (1975). It sounded quite similar to the hook in "I feel fine". Shouldn't it be mentioned in the article? Or am I mistaken? Mrbluesky 14:11, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

"Don't Call Us We'll Call You" isn't a cover of I Feel Fine but it does reference it. It lifts the guitar riff directly from the Beatles song and there's a spoken vocal at one point that says "sounds like John, Paul and George." Otherwise it's a completely different song. 24.5.70.184 (talk) 09:54, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Flash animation?[edit]

I found this Flash animation. Should it be added?

First use of Feedback?[edit]

The article suggests that The Who or Hendrix had used feedback before the recording of I Feel Fine - I find that a little implausable as The Who only formed in 1964 - the year of the the recording of I Feel Fine. Is there a citation for any creative use of feedback before October 1964? Apepper 12:24, 20 January 2007 (UTC) I heard that John wrote it about Cynthia

If we are talking about the sound at the start of the song it doesn't sound like feedback to me... it sounds like someone who plucked a string on the guitar and let it vibrate against their finger nail... try it for yourself and see! Chilkoot (talk) 20:08, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

While this may be the first song in popular music to use feedback as an opener, it had been utilized a few times before in the vein of rock music - most notably Link Wray's 'Rumble' from 1958 and, to a lesser extent, Johnny 'Guitar' Watson's 'Space Guitar' from 1954. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.74.83.212 (talk) 03:06, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Catalogue Number[edit]

I had to change the catalogue number for the Capitol Records single of I Feel Fine in the infobox. The correct catalogue number is 5327 and not 5222. 5222 was actually the catalogue number for The Beatles Capitol single A Hard Day's Night. I know that this is the correct catalogue number because on page 63 of the book "The Beatles Story On Capitol Records: Part One Beatlemania & The Singles", which was compiled by Bruce Spizer, that was published in 2000. I just thought that the article should be accurate and wanted to help out by doing that. I do have the book in my personal library as well as the single itself and that's how I know.
