"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.
British girl group Bananarama covered the song with comedians French & Saunders and Kathy Burke, who were credited as Lananeeneenoonoo, which is a spoof on the Bananarama name. The song was released in February 1989 as the Red Nose Day single to raise money for Comic Relief. It was then included on the 1989 re-release of Bananarama's Greatest Hits Collection album. The single peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart and was a Top-10 hit in several countries.
The music video was directed by Andy Morahan and features the members of Bananarama and Lananeeneenoonoo (dressed like in the Bananarama sketch) singing and dancing in the snow along with several shirtless men, credited as Bassie, Norman and Paul. As well as this, there are clips of Lananeeneenoonoo recording their backing vocals whilst the production team look in despair at their 'singing'.
