The Beatles' Second Album

  1. 02:45 Roll Over Beethoven (Chuck Berry) - 30.07.1963

  2. 02:04 Thank You Girl (John Lennon and Paul McCartney) - 23.06.1963

    JOHN 1980: ''Thank You Girl' was one of our efforts at writing a single that didn't work.
    So it became a B-side or an album track.'

    PAUL 1988: 'We knew that if we wrote a song called, 'Thank You Girl' that alot of the girls who wrote us fan letters would take it as a genuine thank you.
    So alot of our songs were directly addressed to the fans.'

  3. 03:01 You Really Got a Hold On Me (Smokey Robinson) - 18.07.1963

  4. 02:26 Devil In Her Heart (Richard Drapkin) - 18.07.1963

  5. 02:49 Money (That's What I Want) (Berry Gordy and Janie Bradford) - 30.09.1963

  6. 02:34 You Can't Do That (John Lennon – John Lennon and Paul McCartney) - 22.05.1964

    JOHN 1964: 'I'd find it a drag to play rhythm all the time, so I always work myself out something interesting to play.
    The best example I can think of is like I did on 'You Can't Do That.' There really isn't a lead guitarist and a rhythm guitarist on that, because I feel the rhythm guitarist role sounds too thin for records.
    Anyway it drove me potty to play chunk-chunk rhythm all the time.
    I never play anything as lead guitarist that George couldn't do better.
    But I like playing lead sometimes, so I do it.'

    JOHN 1980: 'That's me doing Wilson Pickett.
    You know, a cowbell going four-in-the bar, and the chord going 'chatoong!''

  7. 01:53 Long Tall Sally (Richard Penniman, Enotris Johnson and Robert Blackwell) - 13.08.1963

  8. 02:09 I Call Your Name (John Lennon – John Lennon and Paul McCartney) - 01.03.1964

    JOHN 1980: 'That was my song.
    When there was no Beatles and no group, I just had it around.
    It was my effort as a kind of blues originally, and then I wrote the middle-eight just to stick it in the album when it came out years later.
    The first part had been written before Hamburg even.
    It was one of my 'first' attempts at a song.'

    PAUL circa-1994: 'We worked on it together, but it was John's idea.
    When I look back at some of these lyrics, I think, 'Wait a minute.
    What did he mean? 'I call your name but you're not there.' Is it his mother? His father? I must admit I didn't really see that as we wrote it because we were just a couple of young guys writing.
    You didn't look behind it at the time, it was only later you started analyzing things.'

  9. 02:34 Please Mister Postman (Georgia Dobbins, William Garrett, Freddie Gorman, Brian Holland and Robert Bateman) - 30.07.1963

    PAUL 1984: 'Influenced by the Marvelettes, who did the original version.
    We got it from our fans, who would write 'Please Mr. Postman' on the back of the envelopes.
    'Posty, posty, don't be slow, be like the Beatles and go, man, go!' That sort of stuff.'
  10. 02:02 I'll Get You (John Lennon and Paul McCartney) - 05.10.1963

    JOHN 1963: 'The B-side of 'She Loves You' was meant to be the A-side.'

    PAUL 1963: 'If we write one song, then we can get going after that and get more ideas.
    We wrote 'I'll Get You,' which is the B-side, first.
    And then 'She Loves You' came after that.
    You know – We got ideas from that.
    Then we recorded it.'

    JOHN 1980: 'That was Paul and me trying to write a song… and it didn't work out.'

    PAUL circa-1994: 'It's got an interesting chord in it – 'It's not easy/ To pre-TEND…' That was nicked from a song called 'All My Trials' which is on an album I had by Joan Baez.'

  11. 02:15 She Loves You (John Lennon and Paul McCartney) - 05.10.1963

    JOHN 1963: 'We wrote that two days before we recorded it, actually.'

    PAUL 1963: 'John and I wrote it together.
    We were in a van up in Newcastle somewhere, and we'd just gone over to our hotel.
    I originally got an idea of doing one of those answering songs, where a couple of us sing about 'she loves you' …and the other one sort of says the 'yes, yes' bit.
    You know, 'yeah yeah' answering whoever is saying it.
    But we decided that was a crummy idea anyway.
    But we had the idea to write a song called 'She Loves You' then.
    And we just sat up in the hotel bedroom for a few hours and wrote it, you know.'

    JOHN 1963: ''Yeah.' That's sort of the main catch phrase from 'She Loves You.' We'd written the song, and then suddenly realized we needed more… so we added 'yeah, yeah, yeah' and it caught on.'

    JOHN 1980: 'It was written together (with Paul) and I don't remember how.
    I remember it was Paul's idea – instead of singing 'I love you' again, we'd have a third party.
    The 'Woooo' was taken from the Isley Brothers 'Twist And Shout,' which we stuck into everything.'

    PAUL 1982: 'Occasionally, we'd overrule George Martin, like on 'She Loves You,' we end on a sixth chord, a very jazzy sort of thing.
    And he said, 'Oh, you can't do that! A sixth chord? It's too jazzy.'
    We just said, 'No, it's a great hook, we've got to do it.''

    PAUL 1988: 'We rehearsed the end bit of 'She Loves You' and took it to George.
    And he just laughed and said, 'Well, you can't do the end of course… that sixth… it's too like the Andrew Sisters.' We just said, 'Alright, we'll try it without,' and we tried it and it wasn't as good.
    Then he conceded, 'You're right, I guess.' But we were both very flexible.
    We would listen to George's ideas too, because he was a producer and a musician, and he obviously knew what he was talking about.
    There was good to-and-fro.
    We loved that bit, and we rehearsed it alot.
    John and I wrote that in a hotel room, on twin beds during an afternoon off – I mean, God bless their little cotton socks, those boys WORKED! Here I am talking about an afternoon off, and we're sitting there writing! We just loved it so much.
    It wasn't work.'
