Twist and Shout
(Bert Russell and Phil Medley)
JOHN 1963: 'I always hate singing the song, 'Twist And Shout' when there's a colored artist on the bill with us.
It doesn't seem right, you know.
I feel sort of embarrassed… It makes me curl up.
I always feel they could do the song much better than me.'

JOHN 1971: 'The more interesting songs to me were the black ones because they were more simple.
They sort of said shake-your-arse, or your prick, which was an innovation really.
The blacks were singing directly and immediately about their pain, and also about sex, which is why I like it.'

JOHN 1976: 'The last song nearly killed me.
My voice wasn't the same for a long time after – everytime I swallowed it was like sandpaper.
I was always bitterly ashamed of it because I could sing it better than that, but now it doesn't bother me.
You can hear I'm just a frantic guy doing his best.'

PAUL 1988: 'There's a power in John's voice there that certainly hasn't been equaled since.
And I know exactly why – It's because he worked his bollocks off that day.
We left 'Twist And Shout' until the very last thing because we knew there was one take.'

RINGO 1994: 'We started (recording the album) about noon and finished it at midnight, with John being really hoarse by 'Twist And Shout.''

Well, shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout (Twist and shout)
C'mon c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby, now (Come on baby)
Come on and work it on out (Work it on out)

Well, work it on out, honey (Work it on out)
You know you look so good (Look so good)
You know you got me goin' now (Got me goin')
Just like I knew you would (Like I knew you would)

Well, shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout (Twist and shout)
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby, now (Come on, baby)
Come on and work it on out (Work it on out)

Well, you twist, you little girl (Twist, little girl)
You know you twist so fine (Twist so fine)
Come on and twist a little closer now (Twist a little closer)
And let me know that you're mine (Let me know you're mine)

Well, shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout (Twist and shout)
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby, now (Come on, baby)
Come on and work it on out (Work it on out)

Well, you twist, you little girl (Twist, little girl)
You know you twist so fine (Twist so fine)
Come on and twist a little closer now (Twist a little closer)
And let me know that you're mine (Let me know you're mine)

Well, shake it, shake it, shake it, baby, now (Shake it up baby)
Well, shake it, shake it, shake it, baby, now (Shake it up baby)
Well, shake it, shake it, shake it, baby, now (Shake it up baby)

A Taste of Honey
(Ric Marlow and Bobby Scott)

A taste of honey
Tasting much sweeter than wine

I dream of your first kiss
And then I feel upon my lips again

A taste of honey
Tasting much sweeter than wine

I will return, yes I will return
I'll come back for the honey and you

Yours was the kiss that awoke my heart
There lingers still, though we're far apart

That taste of honey
Tasting much sweeter than wine

Oh I will return, yes I will return
I'll come back (He'll come back)
for the honey (For the honey)
and you

Do You Want to Know a Secret?
(John Lennon and Paul McCartney)
JOHN 1980: 'Well, I can't say I wrote it 'for' George.
My mother was always… she was a good comedienne and a singer.
Not professional, but she used to get up in pubs and things like that.
She had a good voice.
She could do Kay Starr.
She used to do this little tune when I was one or two years old… she was still living with me then.
The tune was from a Disney movie: (sings) 'Do you want to know a secret? Promise not to tell? You are standing by a wishing well.' So, I had this sort of thing in my head, and I wrote it and just gave it to George to sing.
I thought it would be a good for him, because it had only three notes and he wasn't the best singer in the world.
He has improved a lot since then; but in those days, his ability was very poor.'

PAUL 1984: 'A song we really wrote for George to sing.
Before he wrote his own stuff, John and I wrote things for him and Ringo to do.'

GEORGE 1994: ''Do You Want To Know A Secret' was my song on the album.
I didn't like the vocal on it.
I didn't know how to sing.'

You'll never know how much I really love you
You'll never know how much I really care

Listen
Do you want to know a secret
Do you promise not to tell, whoa oh, oh

Closer
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I'm in love with you

Listen
Do you want to know a secret
Do you promise not to tell, whoa oh, oh

Closer
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I'm in love with you

I've known the secret for a week or two
Nobody knows, just we two

Listen
Do you want to know a secret
Do you promise not to tell, whoa oh, oh

Closer
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I'm in love with you

There's a Place
(John Lennon and Paul McCartney)
JOHN 1980: ''There's a Place' was my attempt at a sort of Motown, black thing.
It says the usual Lennon things: 'In my mind there's no sorrow…' It's all in your mind.'

There is a place
Where I can go
When I feel low
When I feel blue
And it's my mind
And there's no time when I'm alone

I think of you
And things you do
Go 'round my head
The things you said
Like "I love only you"

In my mind there's no sorrow
Don't you know that it's so
There'll be no sad tomorrow
Don't you know that it's so

There is a place
Where I can go
When I feel low
When I feel blue
And it's my mind
And there's no time when I'm alone

There's a place...
