Songs they gave away

Songs they gave away

I wish I had songs I could give away…. unfortunately I can’t churn them out like the Beatles factory did. ¬†Some of the songs they wrote for others were pretty craptastic.. but suprisingly many of these tunes became huge hits! Then there are the songs that maybe the Beatles shouldn’t have given away. I obviously love the Mccartney tracks more, but his are definitely the stronger songs.

Funny Beatles factoid; when Paul would play World Without Love, as he sang the lyric “please lock me away”, John would always be quick to respond “ok”. Classic John.

World Without Love (Peter & Gordon)

Step Inside Love (demo w/cilla black)

Come And Get It (Badfinger)

SUPER ADDED BONUS!

Paul wanted to give this song to Frank Sinatra but ol’ Blue eyes thought that the song was a joke and reportedly said “Is this guy trying to have me?”. Frank is pretty dumb cus this song could have been a Sinatra classic.
