Help! by The Beatles was a UK number 1 hit on Thursday, August 5, 1965 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. "Help!" is a song by the English rock band the Beatles that served as the title song for the 1965 film and its soundtrack album. On the Help! album cover, the Beatles are really spelling out N-U-J-V, but aside from a few sea captains, nobody knows that. They're using semaphore, a system for signaling with flags. You can see why they didn't spell out H-E-L-P - there is a huge gap between the H and the E, which no visual artist would stand for. The solution: have them hold the flags in an aesthetically pleasing manner, no matter what it spells. It was ranked at number 29 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
