What I like about that one is how Ringo has that triplet-esque syncopated snare-tom pattern in the first two verses, but they tighten up on the third verse (after the bridge) to a straight rhythm. Nice little variation there. Somehow, I actually never really noticed it until playing through the song on Rock Band or Guitar Hero on the drums. Reading up on it, there seems to be some debate as to whether it was intentional or not. I prefer to think it was, but even if it wasn't, it's a nice bit of color.
