"Ticket To Ride" was released as a single by Parlophone on April 9th 1965 in the UK, and on April 19th in the US. The song was also included on the Help! album released several months later, and on the soundtrack for the film of the same name.
"Ticket To Ride" was third in a run of six consecutive number one's for The Beatles on the US charts, a record that remained until Whitney Houston broke it with seven in 1988.
