Bus Stop

Bus Stop” was the breakthrough single by the British pop band The Hollies, released in 1966. It reached No. 5 in the UK Singles Chart and also No. 5 on the U.S. Billboard charts in September of that year. It was composed by Graham Gouldman, who also wrote “No Milk Today”, “For Your Love”, “Heart Full of Soul”, “Listen People”, and “The Things We Do for Love”.

My instrumental arrangement is at a faster tempo, but still attempts to preserve many of the characteristics of the original.

You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away

“You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away” was written and sung by John Lennon and released on the Beatles album Help! in August 1965. It was also featured in the film. Lennon wrote the song at home during what he called his “Dylan period.”

The song lyrics are ambiguous. Some have suggested that it was written for their manager Brian Epstein, who had to hide his homosexuality from the public.

My arrangement follows the original in form and feel, replacing the vocals with harmonized guitar parts and additional instruments.
