Don't Pass Me By

Don't Pass Me By

by The Beatles

Ringo Starr's first recorded composition was written several years before its 1968 release on the White Album. "I wrote Don't Pass Me By when I was sitting round at home. I only play three chords on the guitar and three on the piano. I was fiddling with the piano - I just bang away - and then if a melody comes and some words, I just have to keep going. That's how it happened: I was just sitting at home alone and Don't Pass Me By arrived. We played it with a country attitude. It was great to get my first song down, one that I had written. It was a very exciting time for me and everyone was really helpful, and recording that crazy violinist was a thrilling moment." Ringo Starr

Rain

Rain

by Humble Pie

We're still locked away in Beatlemaniac Towers, having high-level talks about our future. Needless to say we're both still so upset with the coming closure of TIMJ. This is a great, slow burning cover of John and Paul's classic song. It has the usual mighty performance we expect from Steve Marriott, but we love the other fantastic vocals from bass man, Greg Ridley. From their "Street Rats" released in '75. An album that apparently the band really didn't like and didn't want it releasing. It was eventually released without their permission and generally got hammered by the critics. The band did a farewell tour and disbanded, only to reform with some different members a few years later! #LongLiveTheJams .

You Never Give Me Your Money

You Never Give Me Your Money

by The Beatles

OK, you're right!!!!! It's very weird listening to any track in isolation from the magnificent medley on side two of "Abbey Road"!!!! It's difficult not to listen to the whole side of the album isn't it? This was Paul's song lashing out at the endless business wranglings that were going on, particularly since Alan Klein became the bands manager. Macca said, "it's basically a song about no faith in the person". George didn't think much of the situation either saying, "Funny paper - that's what we get. We get bits of paper saying how much is earned and what this is and that is, but we never actually get it in pounds, shilling and pence". Now - we're off to listen to the rest of this album, before we get withdrawal symptoms.....here comes the "Sun King"!!!!!

I Want to Tell You

I Want to Tell You

by The Beatles

George Harrison's third song on Revolver (along with "Taxman" and "Love You To"). Harrison said the song was about the"about the avalanche of thoughts that are so hard to write down or say or transmit". "But if I seem to act unkind It's only me, it's not my mind That is confusing things" George Harrison was an outstanding writer!

Kansas City

Kansas City

by The Beatles

All the band were big "Little Richard" fans and saw him in concert singing this "mash-up" of two songs, Kansas City with Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey and pinched it for themselves!! Their version on "Beatles For Sale" (UK) & "Beatles VI" (US) was recorded in a single take!!! This live film is from the "Shindig" TV programme in '64. Paul has said, "I could do Little Richard's voice, which is a wild, hoarse, screaming thing; it's like an out-of-body experience. You have to leave your current sensibilities and go about a foot above your head to sing it. You have to actually go outside yourself. It's a funny little trick and when you find it, it's very interesting."

Julia

Julia

by The Beatles

Julia was Lennon´s mom. She gave him his first guitar. Although Lennon lived with his aunt, Julia came to see him daily. When she was 44 and Lennon was 17, she was killed near a bus stop by a police officer in a terrible accident. He was not drunk, He was not speeding. "Like everyone else I started reading in the papers about them and they were never off the TV. I read that John Lennon's mother was dead and that he used to live in Menlove Avenue. I put two and two together and realised that it was his mum that I had killed. Everything came back to me and I felt absolutely terrible. It had the most awful effect on me. The Beatles were everywhere, especially in Liverpool, and I couldn't get away from it." Eric Clague You always think of John and Julia and what a beautiful love song this is, but you never think of the driver, no? Terrible to have to live with that...

Eleanor Rigby

Eleanor Rigby

by P.P. Arnold

Pat (P.P.) was a very early backing singer/dancer with Ike and Tina Turner in the early 60's. After touring around the UK with them, she stayed there!! She's perhaps best known for her version of "The First Cut Is The Deepest" and her storming, back-up singing on The Small Faces "Tin Soldier" classic. This is taken from her "Kafunta" album from1970. Pat's still busy with session work. She's recorded & toured with Roger Waters and recorded an album with The Blow Monkeys Dr Robert a few years back. The Fabs original, was released as a double a-side with "Yellow Submarine" and was included on the "Revolver" album in '66.

Ok, so this is what he says "I was just having fun with words. It was literally a nonsense song. You just take words and you stick them together, and you see if they have any meaning. Some of them do and some of them don't." John Lennon, 1972 Do you believe him? do you believe he practiced "in trance" writing? What do you think the song means?

Real Love

Real Love

by The Beatles

Written by John and finished by the 3 remaining Beatles after John's death. John made the poor quality demo in the late 70's and Yoko gave it to Paul in '94. Jeff Lynne did a lot of work on the demo before the boys went into the studio. Lynne also produced the final mix, after George Martin had been asked to work on it and had said no, due to increasing problems with his hearing. It was The Fab's last "hit" single both in the UK & US in '96 (apart from older singles charting after being re-released). It became a hit in the UK, despite not being included on the BBC Radio 1's playlist!! Which at the time (and probably still now) was always a vital thing to achieve to guarantee a hit.

Don't Bother Me

Don't Bother Me

by The Beatles

The first song written by George Harrison to appear on an album by The Beatles. It originally featured on the group's "With The Beatles" album in the UK, released in 1963, and on their "Meet The Beatles!" album in the US in '64. The song also appears briefly in the "Hard Days Night" film. None of the guys liked the song very much, George even said "I don't think it's a particularly good song..." But fortunately for us, George thought he could do better, so he kept writing. He was also keen to have more songs included on The Fabs albums, as he'd realised he would earn more money!!! In true George droll style he commented about his early song writing saying, "It did, however, provide me with an occupation." As first songs go, we think this is a brilliant effort!!!!

When I Get Home

When I Get Home

by The Beatles

The Album "A Hard Day´s Night" was released on July 10th. 1964 in the UK. Lennon was tired of spending three months in the studio ("I´ve got no time for trivialities" and it shows "Come on, let me through I've got so many things I've got to do I've got no business being here with you This way" But he manages to turn it around and it becomes this anthem of longing, domesticity and love. A top track in a great album.

You Bring the Party Down

You Bring the Party Down

by Ringo Starr

It's dear Ringo's 75th birthday on Tuesday, July 7th. Our man has never been a flashy drummer, but he contributed so much and held all of the band's greatest tracks together with some extraordinary drumming. He was recently inducted by Macca, into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and he's still gigging regularly with his All-Starr Band - new dates recently announced for October in the US. We are both really happy when either of the remaining Beatles releases some new music. This is a great track from Ringo's recently released album "Postcards from Paradise". Happy Birthday Ringo - we love you, keep on rockin'. Peace and Love!! The track does finish at 4:20!!!!!

The Ballad Of John And Yoko

The Ballad Of John And Yoko

by The Beatles

The recording only features John (lead vocals, lead & acoustic guitars) and Paul (bass, drums, piano & harmony vocals) George was on holiday & Ringo was filming "Magic Christian"! Although the band were falling apart, this recording brought J & P closer for a short time and they seemed to have fun in the studio with lots of banter, such as John (on guitar): "Go a bit faster, Ringo!" - Paul (on drums): "OK, George!" The song lyrics got the boys into trouble again, with several radio stations in the US & UK banning it. At the time John said, "It's like an old-time ballad. It's just the story of us getting married, going to Paris, going to Amsterdam, all that. It's Johnny B Paperback Writer!"

We Can Work It Out

We Can Work It Out

by The Beatles

The song was released as a single along with "Day Tripper" in 1965. Can you imagine owning a copy of that? Do any of you own a copy of it??? Can we see it?! Day Tripper was going to be the single but Brian Epstein, George, Ringo and Paul considered it would be a more commercial hit. They were right, it was the most requested song by record buyers. Lennon wanted it to be Day Tripper and for that reason it was market as a double A - side (first in the world). Which one would you have released? Day Tripper or this pop gem?

My Brave Face

My Brave Face

by Paul McCartney

A belated Happy Birthday to Macca - 73 on June 18th!!! This track was written by Paul & Elvis Costello, from the "Flowers In The Dirt" (1989) album. We selected this track as we love its Japanese connection. Paul's had some "interesting" times in Japan!!! In 1980 he was busted for marijuana possession and spent 9 days in prison. Last year he spent several days in a Tokyo hospital and had to cancel all his tour dates. We're pleased to say Paul made a happy return to Japan a couple of months ago with no mishaps!! He played the famous Budokan venue, 49 years after The Fabs played there!! Fashion note: Paul & Nancy arrive in Japan in matching Kimonos!!! :-)

Your Mother Should Know

Released on Dec. 8th, 1967 in Magical Mystery Tour. This is the sequence from the movie with the same name. "The big prop was that great big staircase that we danced down, that was where all the money went: in that particular shot on that big staircase. I said, 'Sod it, you've got to have the Busby Berkeley ending,' and it is a good sequence. Just the fact of John dancing, which he did readily. You can see by the fun expression on his face that he wasn't forced into anything." Paul McCartney We love the fact you can tell they were having a lot of fun at the time! ;)

Back in the USSR

Back in the USSR

by The Beatles

The White Album's opening track is a tour-de-force from Paul. He wrote it, sung lead vocals, played piano, electric guitar, bass guitar, AND most of the drums!!!! Poor old Ringo had walked out and gone on holiday for 2 weeks, after having had a row with Paul. The song got the band into more trouble with conservatives in the US, who accused them of supporting communism!!! The reverse was, it made them even more popular in the USSR, where fans still had to listen to most Western "pop music" on smuggled in tapes!! The main influences for the song came from Chuck Berry and of course the Beach Boys "California Girls".

Ticket to Ride was the name of the first album released by American music duo Carpenters. It has a cover of the song written by Lennon and McCartney. It was written by both, sang by John and McCartney is responsible for the way Ringo plays the drums, some consider it to be the first heavy metal record ever. Karen´s voice makes it sound very heavy (as in emotionally heavy) and not heavy metal at all ;)

The Beatles had been playing this Buddy Holly cover at their gigs since their very early days. All of the band were big Holly fans, but this was the only one of his songs to be recorded by them. "Words Of Love" was first released in the UK on the "Beatles For Sale" album released in '64. This BBC recorded, live version features John and George on vocals, which is how they performed it live, whereas the original album version features mainly John & Paul.

She Loves You

She Loves You

by The Beatles - Live_In_Melbourne_1964

Another song that we cannot believe we haven't posted before!!! Released as a single in '63 and arguably the song where Beatlemania really kicked off. John & Paul had several attempts to write the song and finished it off at Macca's family home. After they'd finished Paul said to his Dad, "Dad, listen to this. What do you think?' So we played it to my Dad and he said, 'That's very nice, son, but there's enough of these Americanisms around. Couldn't you sing, "She loves you. Yes! Yes! Yes!"' At which point we collapsed in a heap and said, 'No, Dad, you don't quite get it!" This is video is from The Beatles first world tour concert in Melbourne, Australia during '64.

Only a Northern Song

Only a Northern Song

by The Beatles

Famously written by George, as a light-hearted, but still sharp protest against his songs being published by Northern Songs. This allegedly meant John & Paul would actually earn more in publishing rights than George did!!!! Originally recorded in the Sgt Pepper sessions, it was not included on that album, which didn't help George's growing disenchantment with being a Beatle!! It was finally released on the "Yellow Submarine" album. An interesting mix of instruments were used, including: George on organ, Paul on trumpet and John on piano & glockenspiel!!

For No One

For No One

by The Beatles

"I was in Switzerland on my first skiing holiday. I'd done a bit of skiing in Help! and quite liked it, so I went back and ended up in a little bathroom in a Swiss chalet writing For No One. I remember the descending bassline trick that it's based on, and I remember the character in the song - the girl putting on her make-up. Occasionally we'd have an idea for some new kind of instrumentation, particularly for solos... On For No One I was interested in the French horn, because it was an instrument I'd always loved from when I was a kid. It's a beautiful sound, so I went to George Martin and said, 'How can we go about this?' And he said, 'Well, let me get the very finest." Paul McCartney

Got to Get You Into My Life

Got to Get You Into My Life

by Cliff Bennett & The Rebel Rousers

Back in the mid 60's Cliff & his band were one of the hottest, live, soul outfits on the British scene and this live performance comes from '66. It's a great cover of Paul's Motown influenced song, featured on "Revolver". The song was a favourite of Lennon's who said "I think that was one of his best songs, too, because the lyrics are good and I didn't write them. You see? When I say that he could write lyrics if he took the effort, here's an example." Paul has said the song was about smoking dope saying it, "is really a song about that, it's not to a person, it's actually about pot. It's saying, I'm going to do this. This is not a bad idea. So it's actually an ode to pot, like someone else might write an ode to chocolate or a good claret."

"Theyve forgotten all about god Hes the only reason we exist Yet you were the one that they said was So weird All those years ago You said it all though not many had ears All those years ago You had control of our smiles and our tears All those years ago" Released on his album "Somewhere in England" in 1981. It is his tribute to John Lennon. Ringo plays the drums and McCartney sings backing vocals. It was the first time that Harrison, McCartney and Starr had appeared on the same recording since 1970, and the last time they would appear together until "Free As a Bird", in 1995.

The original song was on the "Let It Be" album released 45 years ago this month!! We really love this stripped back version from "Let It Be...Naked," which did away with much of the production that Phil Spector had added. Written by John who was really pleased with the song saying "It's one of the best lyrics I've written. In fact, it could be the best. It's good poetry, or whatever you call it, without chewin' it. See, the ones I like are the ones that stand as words, without melody. They don't have to have any melody, like a poem, you can read them."

Originally intended to be the follow-up single to "From Me To You". It was eventually released as the B-side to "She Loves You" in '63. This live version, is slightly slower than the original and is from the "On Air - Live At The BBC Volume 2" album. It was a featured regularly in their live performances. Although it's thought John wrote much of the song he never really liked it, saying, "That was Paul and me trying to write a song and it didn't work out!!" However, Paul has been quoted as saying he really liked the song with it's unusual chord changes.

A Taste of Honey

A Taste of Honey

by The Beatles

"A Taste of Honey" is an instrumental pop song written by Bobby Scott and Ric Marlow. It was written for the 1960 Broadway version of the British play with the same name by Shelagh Delaney. The song was included on Please Please Me and it was one of McCartney´s favorites. It contrasted with Twist and Shout´s raw energy, but was a nice ballad in which they did a good job with the harmonies and showed the versatility of the group.

Revolution

Revolution

by The Beatles

"Revolution" was The Beatles statement on what they were seeing at the time. Written by Lennon and credited to Lennon - McCartney. I wanted to put out what I felt about revolution. I thought it was time we fucking spoke about it, the same as I thought it was about time we stopped not answering about the Vietnamese war when we were on tour with Brian Epstein and had to tell him, 'We're going to talk about the war this time, and we're not going to just waffle.' I wanted to say what I thought about revolution. I had been thinking about it up in the hills in India. I still had this 'God will save us' feeling about it, that it's going to be all right. That's why I did it: I wanted to talk, I wanted to say my piece about revolution. I wanted to tell you, or whoever listens, to communicate, to say 'What do you say? This is what I say.' John Lennon

Twist & Shout

by The Beatles

Another song from The Fabs only appearance at the UK's Royal Command Performance in '63. At the time it was the biggest night in show-business! It includes a short clip of the press conference the band did before the show. It's also when John made his now famous song introduction to "Twist and Shout". It was a fairly controversial, certainly very mischievous thing to say in front of an audience like that. John had brooded on what to say during the show. “I was fantastically nervous,” he later recalled, “but I wanted to say something to rebel a bit.”That's why we love John!!!!

Here Comes The Sun

Here Comes The Sun

by The Beatles

We were both so surprised when we realised we had not posted this beauty before!!! One of two songs George wrote for "Abbey Road". It features George on vocals, backing vocals, acoustic guitar, harmonium and Moog synthesiser. Paul on bass and backing vocals, Ringo on drums and session musicians on cellos, violas, double bass, flutes, piccolos and clarinets. John is not featured at all, as he was recovering from a car accident when the main recording took place.

It's Only Love

It's Only Love

by The Beatles

It was written mainly by Lennon and credited to Lennon and McCartney. Released in their album Help!. This is a tricky song in the sense that many of us fans love it but it is not a favorite of the band. Neither John nor Paul were mad about this song, basically considering it a filler song, : Sometimes we didn't fight it if the lyric came out rather bland on some of those filler songs like It's Only Love. If a lyric was really bad we'd edit it, but we weren't that fussy about it, because it's only a rock 'n' roll song. I mean, this is not literature. Paul McCartney

Yesterday

Yesterday

by Elvis Presley

From the "On Stage" album recorded & released in '70. The Beatles only met Elvis once in August '65. The meeting got off to a very uncomfortable start with The Fabs being overawed by meeting their hero. At one point Elvis told them, "If you damn guys are gonna sit here and stare at me all night I'm gonna go to bed!!!!" Things moved from bad to worse when John started firing awkward questions at The King such as "'Why do you do all these soft-centred ballads for the cinema these days? What happened to good old rock 'n' roll?'" The ice was finally broken, when Elvis called for guitars to be brought out and they played a few songs together. Sadly, no photos or recordings were made of the meeting!!

In Loving Memory (of Cynthia Lennon)

In Loving Memory (of Cynthia Lennon)

by Julian Lennon

We were both saddened to hear of the passing of Cynthia Lennon, who was John's first wife, before and during the early, crazy Beatlemania days. Cynthia was a talented young artist and met John at Art College. She was once asked if Lennon had written any songs about their time together, and answered, “It was too sloppy when you were young to dedicate anything to anybody. Macho Northern men didn’t do that in those days”. When asked about what might have been she said, “If John hadn’t been famous, I would probably have been a teacher going out to work and he would probably have been busking. I don’t know. It was just one of those moments – the right place, the right time.” This is the poignant tribute their son Julian posted to his web site yesterday.

The Fool on the Hill

The Fool on the Hill

by The Beatles

"Now that's Paul. Another good lyric. Shows he's capable of writing complete songs." John Lennon A bit condescending of John, but we also think it is a great song and great lyrics. "The Fool On The Hill was mine and I think I was writing about someone like Maharishi. His detractors called him a fool. Because of his giggle he wasn't taken too seriously. It was this idea of a fool on the hill, a guru in a cave, I was attracted to." Paul McCartney In any case, it´s April´s Fool´s Day!!!!!!!!

You Really Got a Hold on Me

You Really Got a Hold on Me

by The Beatles

This was the very first song the band recorded for the "With The Beatles" album. It demonstrated their love for Motown & Soul music, that was just finding its way over to the UK. A Smokey Robinson song first recorded by The Miracles. This is a live recording from '63 in Stockholm, with a strangely quiet audience! It comes from the "Anthology 1" album. Featuring John on lead vocals, with some great harmonies from George & Paul.

Boys

Boys

by The Beatles

From the first "Please Please Me" album. This Shirelles song had been featured in The Fabs live shows for several years and was Ringo's first recorded lead vocals. As they knew the song so well, the band only took one take to record it for the album!! This live concert recording also features a nice little guitar solo from George. We were both really pleased to hear that Paul has agreed to induct his old Beatles Brother into The Rock and Roll hall of Fame next month.

Yes It Is

Yes It Is

by The Beatles

According to Lennon it is him trying to rewrite "This Boy" but he thinks it didn´t work...according to Paul it is "a very fine song of John´s". Lennon, McCartney and Harrison then spent three hours perfecting their vocal harmonies, all singing live together. We love this song, can you believe this was a B-side? We suggest you listen to this hauntingly beautiful song with some headphones on, give you a great feel for the harmonies! ;)

Run For Your Life

Run For Your Life

by Cowboy Junkies

Written by John for the Rubber Soul album. It was a song that apparently he never liked, saying it was "his least favourite Beatles song" and describing it as "Just a sort of throwaway song of mine that I never thought much of.....It has a line from an old Presley song: 'I'd rather see you dead, little girl, than to be with another man' is a line from an old blues song that Presley did once." We think this is a wonderful performance by the CJ's singer Margot Timmins, as she lifts the threatening words of the song up to another level, along with some atmospheric guitar from (we think?) her brother Michael!!! This version comes from the 40th anniversary "Rubber Soul" tribute album, "This Bird Has Flown".

The Inner Light

The Inner Light

by The Beatles

Chapter 47 of the Tao Te Ching says: "Without taking a step outdoors You know the whole world; Without taking a peep out the window You know the colour of the sky. The more you experience, The less you know. The sage wanders without knowing, Sees without looking, Accomplishes without acting" The Inner Light was written by George Harrison and first released as the b-side of Lady Madonna. John Lennon and George Harrison were deep into transcendental meditation, and this song is clearly a testament to what they were experiencing (perhaps still are?) at the time. An incredible achievement to communicate all this through a pop song!!! We leave you with it and would love your thoughts on it also!

Leave My Kitten Alone

Leave My Kitten Alone

by The Beatles

We're dipping back into the Anthology Series (Volume 1) again for this rarity recorded during the "Beatles For Sale" sessions in '64. The Fabs had covered the song in their live sets since the Hamburg days. We both think this would have been a great addition to the album, as it's classic Beatles. John shouts out some great vocals, George plays some tasty guitar, Paul plays piano and bass and Ringo some rock-steady drumming. They are ROCKING!!!!

The Word

The Word

by The Beatles

From the "Rubber Soul" album. A real "joint" Lennon/McCartney song writing effort, both in terms of them writing together, but also they were both smoking a lot of pot at this time!!! In song writing terms, it really starts their move towards them both buying into the idea of "Love" being a philosophy and a way of live. They have an  almost evangelical zeal for it, "I'm here to show everybody the light"!!! Talking about this song John is quoted as saying, "You read the words, it's all about - gettin' smart. It's the marijuana period. It's love, it's the love-and-peace thing. The word is 'love', right?" George Martin plays harmonium.

I Call Your Name (live at the bbc)

by The Beatles

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GEORGE!!!!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!! To celebrate George´s birthday we posted this song with one of the best guitar solos ever recorded by him and his new Rickenbacker 12-string. Also one of the top 3 cowbell jams ever? "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." John Lennon, 1980

Martha My Dear

Martha My Dear

by Slade

A little curio of a cover for you this time and a kind of "Before They Were Famous"! Before changing their name to "Slade", the band had built up a good, live reputation around the UK as "The 'N Betweens". When they got a record deal their management insisted on a name and image change. They became "Ambrose Slade" for a short time, before finally shortening it to "Slade" This is from their début album "Beginnings". The song written by Paul, from the '68 "White Album", featured just Paul on vocals, piano, bass, lead guitar and drums, together with a host of session musicians on strings and brass.

Written by: Harrison Recorded: 25 January 1969; 8 January 1970 Producer: George Martin Best use for a lap steel guitar? Lennon plays it beautifully... Paul McCartney plays the piano with paper intertwined between the strings...can you tell? Do you think it is underrated? We have heard that is is not memorable, but we think it is pretty catchy and cool! ;)

She Said She Said

She Said She Said

by The Beatles

The closing song on side 1 of "Revolver" and the final song to be recorded for the album. It was finished being written, rehearsed and recorded in a frantic 9 hour session, after which George Martin is reported as saying, "All right, boys, I'm just going for a lie-down." Written by John with some help from George. Lennon is quoted as saying it was written after, "an acid trip in LA during a break in The Beatles' tour where we were having fun with The Byrds and lots of girls. Some from Playboy, I believe. Peter Fonda came in when we were on acid and he kept coming up to me and sitting next to me and whispering, 'I know what it's like to be dead." It's one of the very few Beatles tracks that Paul doesn't feature on at all. George plays both lead and bass guitars. Awesome drumming from Ringo!!

Blow Away

Blow Away

by George Harrison

"All I got to do is to love you All I got to be is, be happy All it's got to take is some warmth to make it Blow Away, Blow Away, Blow Away." One of his most beloved singles, this song was considered simple but grew on everyone, including George, who said that served as a reminder that he, in fact, "loved everybody" and should seek to be more optimistic. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

** JAM 100 ** Thank you everyone who has commented or listened to our Beatlemaniac Jams. When we started this little side-project nearly a year ago, we had no idea of how it would be received. We are very happy how much love there still is on TIMJ for The Beatles. We both have had a lot of fun and learnt so much about The Fabs during this time. It has just confirmed to us that they still are the most important band ever. So a great big THANK YOU from Naty and Mike - we love you people!!!! As a special treat, here's a favourite song we've been storing up for you....<3
