Oh Look Out! Part 14, Past Masters 1
by John T. Marck

Once EMI Records had issued all the original United Kingdom Beatles albums on CD, they were left with several ideas as to how to complete the digital transfer of the remaining catalogue of Beatles' songs. As everyone agrees, EMI did the right thing by using the most sensible approach, that is to place all the leftover tracks on two CDs. Included on these masterpieces are their non-LP single. Take a look to learn all about these great songs, many of which were #1 hits! Also, did you know that The Beatles German versions of two of their greatest hits, when actually translated, are not the same songs they are supposed to be? Find out this and much more here!!

 

 

Oh Look Out! Songs and Albums of The Beatles

Part 14

PAST MASTERS I

In 1988, EMI Records released two of the greatest collections of Beatles' hits available. These two CD's, Past Masters I and II respectively are the collection of singles that were otherwise unavailable on CD, at that time. From a collectors standpoint, if you have the other thirteen Beatles' albums, along with these two, you would then have every song that The Beatles commercially issued, except two. The only other two would be those most recent releases from their Anthology Series, "Free As A Bird," and "Real Love."

Past Masters gather together the A and B-sides of the singles. Now lets take a look at Past Masters I.

Love Me Do

Written by Paul, this song is quite basic, having one message - love. Although the album cover refers to this song, and it is the same song as released on the single, it is not the same recording. The initial recording, released on October 5, 1962 in England, was recorded on September 4, 1962, in a fifteen-take session. It would not be before fifteen takes were performed that George Martin was basically satisfied, but not entirely. Returning to the studio one week later, The Beatles discovered that George Martin had a session drummer there by the name of Andy White who was to replace Ringo. Since Ringo had only recently replaced Pete Best, I feel sure he thought his days were numbered as well. Per Martin's decision, White played the drums on this retake, while Ringo stood by and played the tambourine. The initial recording with Ringo on the drums was the one that appeared on the single. But, for reasons that are not clear, Martin decided to use the Andy White drum version on this album. Whether he preferred White's drumming on this number to Ringo's is not clear, but Martin did say that he used White's version on the album because the master tape of this song had been sent overseas to an EMI subsidiary company. By mistake? Who knows. Additionally, later in 1963, all future single releases of Love Me Do was the retake version with Andy White. So, if you happen to have an original EMI release of October 5, 1962, you have the Ringo version. Any release in the United States as a single was done so on April 27, 1964 on Tollie Records, and as such is the White version, like the album one. Although a McCartney song, it was a true Lennon-McCartney collaboration, what with Lennon's lively harmonica solo. This album version was recorded on September 11, 1962, at Abbey Road Studios, and is a different version from that which appears on the album, "Please Please Me." "Love Me Do," reached #1 in the United States on April 27, 1964 and remained there for one week.

Love, love me do, you know I love you, I'll always be true, so please, love me do

Oh, love me do

Love, love me do, you know I love you, I'll always be true, so please, love me do

Oh, love me do

Someone to love, somebody new, someone to love, someone like you

Love, love me do, you know I love you, I'll always be true, so please, love me do

Oh, love me do

Love, love me do, you know I love you, I'll always be true, so please, love me do

Oh, love me do, yeah, love me do, oh, love me do

From Me To You

Another love song, on February 28, 1963, while traveling on a bus between York and Shrewsbury, John and Paul wrote this their third Beatles' single. As with many of their early works, this song was built around personal pronouns, using the idea that the audience could easily identify with the "me" and "you" in the title and lyrics. The opening harmonica solo by John was the idea of George Martin, and turned out to be a major part of this song's appeal. This song was recorded on March 5, 1963 in thirteen takes at Abbey Road, and was released on April 11, 1963. It reached #1 in the United Kingdom and remained there for seven weeks, from May 2 - June 19.

Da da da da da da da da, Da da da da da da da da

If there's anything that you want, if there's anything I can do

Just call on me and I'll send it along, with love, from me to you

I've got everything that you want, like a heart that's oh so true

Just call on me and I'll send it along, with love, from me to you

I got arms that long to hold you, and keep you by my side

I got lips that long to kiss you, and keep you satisfied

Ooo, if there's anything that you want, if there's anything I can do

Just call on me and I'll send it along, with love, from me to you

To you, just call on me and I'll send it along, with love, from me to you

I got arms that long to hold you, and keep you by my side

I got lips that long to kiss you, and keep you satisfied

Ooo, if there's anything that you want, if there's anything I can do

Just call on me and I'll send it along, with love, from me to you

To you, to you, to you

Thank You Girl

Originally released as the B-side of "From Me To You," this song was recorded on March 5 and 13, 1963 in thirteen takes. This song, although not a bad song, is less about self-expression and more about the constant search for hit records. It is said that if this song had been an A-side hit, it probably would have never withstood the constant air-play that every Beatles' song was treated to in the 60s.

Ah, ah, mm, you be good to me, you made me glad when I was blue

And eternally I'll always be in love with you, and all I gotta do is thank you girl

Thank you girl

I could tell the world a thing or two about love, I know little girl on ly a fool would doubt our love

And all I gotta do is thank you girl, Thank you girl

Thank you girl for lovin' me the way that you do (way that you do)

That's the kind of love that is too good to be true, and all I gotta do is thank you girl

Thank you girl

Ah, ah, mm, you be good to me, you made me glad when I was blue

And eternally I'll always be in love with you, and all I gotta do is thank you girl

Thank you girl, ah, ah, ah

She Loves You

The Beatles' fourth big single, this was recorded on July 1, 1963, at Abbey Road, and quickly epitomized Beatlemania, as well as gave birth to the catchphrase "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah." Another love song, it was originally thought to be a lesser song, when it was suggested that The Beatles recorded it in a struggle for new material and hits. However, it went on to become the anthem of The Beatles. Mention the phrase "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah," today and immediately it takes you back to The Beatles and this wonderful hit. It was released on August 23, 1963 on Swan Records and was a #1 hit in the United Kingdom for six weeks, between September 12 and October 9, and again between November 28 and December 5, 1963. In the United States is rose to #1 for two weeks on March 21 and 28, 1964.

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah

You think you've lost your love, well, I saw her yesterday-yi-yay

It's you she's thinking of, and she told me what to say-yi-yay

She says she loves you, and you know that can't be bad

Yes, she loves you, and you know you should be glad

She said you hurt her so, she almost lost her mind And now she says she knows, you're not the hurting kind

She says she loves you, and you know that can't be bad

Yes, she loves you, and you know you should be glad

Oo, she loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, she loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah

And with a love like that, you know you should be glad

You know it's up to you, I think it's only fair

Pride can hurt you too, apologize to her, because she loves you

And you know that can't be bad, yes, she loves you

And you know you should be glad, Oo, she loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, and with a love like that

You know you should be glad, and with a love like that

You know you should be glad

I'll Get You

Another great John Lennon love song, this was recorded on July 1, 1963 at Abbey Road and was released as the B-side to "She Loves You," on Swan Records. Not quite catchy enough for a single of its own, it is nonetheless and great song. It would be with this composition, especially with the "middle eight," that Lennon was believed to be every bid the composer that McCartney was.

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, imagine I'm in love with you, it's easy 'cause I know

I've imagined I'm in love with you, many, many, many times before

It's not like me to pretend, but I'll get you

I'll get you in the end, yes, I will, I'll get you in the end

Oh yeah, oh yeah, I think about you night and day, I need you and it's true

When I think about you I can say, I'm never, never, never, never blue

So I'm telling you, my friend, that I'll get you

I'll get you in the end, yes, I will, I'll get you in the end, Oh yeah

Well, there's gonna be a time, when I'm gonna change your mind

So you might as well resign yourself to me, Oh yeah,

Imagine I'm in love with you, it's easy 'cause I know

I've imagined I'm in love with you, many, many, many times before

It's not like me to pretend, but I'll get you

I'll get you in the end, yes, I will, I'll get you in the end

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah oh yeah, Oh yeah

I Want To Hold Your Hand

This song written by both John and Paul broke The Beatles into a worldwide phenomenon, and bringing them their first #1 hit in America, staying at #1 for seven weeks from February 1 to March 20, 1964. It was the group's first four-track recording, begun and completed in seventeen takes on October 17, 1963. Interestingly in the middle section, the phrase "I Can't Hide," was mistaken by many including Bob Dylan as The Beatles saying, "I Get High."

I'll tell you something I think you'll understand

When I say that something I want to hold your hand

I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand

Oh, please say to me you'll let me be your man

And please say to me you'll let me hold your hand

Not, let me hold your hand, I want to hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy inside, it's such a feeling that my love

I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide

Yeah, you got that something I think you'll understand, when I say that something

I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy inside, It's such a feeling that my love

I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide

Yeah, you got that something I think you'll understand, when I say that something

I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand

This Boy

Written by John Lennon, this is the first of his great three-part harmony songs, fashioned around the standard doo-wop chord changes so common in the 50s. It first appeared as the B-side to "I Want To Hold Your Hand," in the United Kingdom only. What made the song was not only the harmonies, but Lennon's stretching out the final syllable over several bars. It was recorded on October 17, 1963 in seventeen takes, and the fifteenth take is the one heard here.

That boy took my love away, oh, he'll regret it some day

But this boy wants you back again, that boy isn't good for you

Though he may want you too, this boy wants you back again

Oh, and this boy would be happy, just to love you, but oh, my, oh

That boy won't be happy till he's seen you cry, this boy wouldn't mind the pain

Would always feel the same, if this boy gets you back again, this boy, this boy...

Komm Gib Mir Deine Hand

Lennon/McCartney/Nicholas/Heller

On January 29, 1964, while the Beatles were in Paris, they recorded two German-language renditions of their two most recent singles, I Want To Hold Your Hand and She Loves. Most groups during this time were required to record their hits in European languages, but after recording these two songs The Beatles said never again. In Truth the German version does not translate at all like the original song. Transcribed below in red is I Want To Hold Your Hand, - well sort of. Below this, in green, is written the English version of I Want To Hold You Hand, followed by the actual German translation in blue. You can see that not only was the title different, but the lyrics as well. Enough said.

O komm doch, komm zu mir, du nimmst mir den Verstand

O komm doch, komm zu mir komm gib mir deine Hand,

Komm gib mir deine hand, komm gib mir deine hand

O du bist so sch÷n, sch÷n wie ein Diamant

Ich will mit dir gehen, komm gib mir deine hand,

Komm gib mir deine hand, komm gib mir deine hand

In deinen Armen bin ich glcklich und froh,

Dass war noch nie bei einer andern einmal so, einmal so, einmal so.

O komm doch, komm zu mir, du nimmst mir den Verstand.

O komm doch, komm zu mir, komm gib mir deine hand,

Komm gib mir deine hand, komm gib mir deine hand.

In deinen Armen bin ich glcklich und froh, dass war noch nie bei einer andern

Einmal so, einmal so, einmal so.

O du bist so sch÷n, sch÷n wie ein Diamant

Ich will mit dir gehen, komm gib mir deine hand,

Komm gib mir deine hand, komm gib mir deine hand,

Komm gib mir deine hand

I Want To Hold Your Hand

I'll tell you something I think you'll understand

When I say that something I want to hold your hand

I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand

Oh, please say to me you'll let me be your man

And please say to me you'll let me hold your hand

Not, let me hold your hand, I want to hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy inside

It's such a feeling that my love, I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide

Yeah, you got that something I think you'll understand

When I say that something

I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy inside

It's such a feeling that my love, I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide

Yeah, you got that something I think you'll understand When I say that something, I want to hold your hand,

I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand

Come, Give Me Your Hand

Oh come on, come to me, you drive me crazy

Oh come on, come to me, come, give me your hand

Come, give me your hand, come, give me your hand

Oh you are so pretty, as pretty as a diamond

I want to be with you, come, give me your hand

Come, give me your hand, come, give me your hand

In your arms I am happy and glad, with any other girl it was never

Once like this, once like this, once like this

Sie Liebt Dich

Lennon/McCartney/Nicholas/Montague

On January 29, 1964, while the Beatles were in Paris, they recorded two German-language renditions of their two most recent singles, I Want To Hold Your Hand and She Loves. Most groups during this time were required to record their hits in European languages, but after recording these two songs The Beatles said never again. Like I Want To Hod Your Hand, She Loves You, in it's English translation is nothing like the original, although somewhat closer than I Want To Hold You Hand. Written in red below is the German version, followed in green by the actual English words, then the German translation in blue. Enough said again...

Sie liebt dich yeah yeah yeah, Sie liebt dich yeah yeah yeah

Sie liebt dich yeah yeah yeah yeah

Du glaubst sie liebt nur mich, gestern hab' ich sie gesehen.

Sie denkt ja nur an dich und du solltest zu ihr gehen.

O ja sie liebt dich, sch÷ner kann es gar nicht sein.

Because alone/only with you, she can only be happy

Because alone/only with you, she can only be happy, yeah yeah yeah

Long Tall Sally

Enotris Johnson/Richard Penniman/Robert Blackwell

Recorded in just one take, this magnificent performance by The Beatles and Paul McCartney is the finest rock n' roll performance of their careers! Recorded on March 1, 1964 at Abbey Road, George Harrison's guitar is total perfection, with George Martin duplicating Little Richard's piano-thumping, but what made the track was Paul McCartney's throat-searing lead vocal. Never before or since has he created such an outstanding up-tempo performance in a recording studio. So great a recording it became the title track of an British EP (extended-play single), which went on to become the group's best-ever EP, and the first time with a song written other than by The Beatles. It is arguably superior to the original by Little Richard . It was released on June 19, 1964. Normally, I do not reproduce the lyrics of others, but as this is the best rock n' roll number The Beatles ever recorded, I have included it here."Long Tall Sally," is copyright ©1956, Enotris Johnson, Richard Penniman and Robert Blackwell.

I'm gonna tell Aunt Mary 'bout Uncle John

he said he had the misery but he got a lot of fun

Baby, yeah now baby, woo baby, some fun tonight

I saw Uncle John with Long Tall Sally

he saw Aunt Mary comin' and he ducked back in the alley

Oh, baby, yeah now baby, woo baby, some fun tonight

Well Long Tall Sally's built pretty sweet, she got everything that Uncle John need

Baby, yeah now baby, woo baby, some fun tonight

Well, we're gonna have some fun tonight, have some fun tonight

Everything's all right, have some fun tonight, have some fun

yeah, yeah, yeah, we're gonna have some fun tonight, have some fun tonight

Everything's all right, have some fun tonight

Yeah, we'll have some fun, some fun tonight

I Call Your Name

Principally written by John, this song was originally given to another managed Brian Epstein group, Bill J. Kramer and the Dakotas the year before The Beatles recorded it. Because it was used as a B-side to "Kramer's" single, "Bad To Me," which was also written by Lennon and McCartney, Lennon decided that The Beatles should record it. When Billy J. Kramer recorded this, he did so in a more submissive delivery, however, Lennon, using a more dogmatic style, indicated by his vocals that he didn't really much care if the girl in question answered him or not! It was recorded on March 1, 1964 in seven takes. The version heard here is a combination of take five and seven placed together. It was released on the "Long Tall Sally" EP.

I call your name but you're not there, was I to blame for being unfair? Oh I can't sleep at night, since you've been gone

I never weep at night, I can't go on

Well don't you know I can't take it, I don't know who can

I'm not going to make it, I'm not that kind of man

Oh I can't sleep at night, but just the same, I never weep at night, I call your name

Don't you know I can't take it, I don't know who can

I'm not going to make it, I'm not that kind of man

Oh I can't sleep at night, but just the same

I never weep at night, I call your name, I call your name, I call your name

Slow Down-- Larry Williams

Recorded on June 1 and 4, 1964, this was a remake of the 1958 Larry Williams original. It was recorded in six takes, with the over-dubbing completed on June 4.

Matchbox - Carl Perkins

Recorded on June 1, 1964 as well, this Carl Perkins remake of his 1957 hit was sung by Ringo. It was competed in five takes, and Perkins attended the session, but did not participate in the recording. Interestingly this song kept Perkins in royalties for decades to come!

I FeelFine

The Beatles ended the year 1964 with this progressive pop song, with its distinctive opening guitar feedback, deliberately composed, and was no accident, although reported as such at the time. Recorded on October 18, 1964 at Abbey Road, it was completed in nine takes. It rose to #1 in the UK for five weeks from December 10, 1964 to January 13, 1965. In the United States it was #1 for three weeks from December 26, 1964 to January 15, 1965.

Baby's good to me you know, she's happy as can be, you know, she said so

I'm in love with her and I feel fine,

Baby says she's mine, you know, she tells me all the time, you now, she said so

I'm in love with her and I feel fine

I'm so glad that she's my little girls, she's so glad she's telling all the world

That her baby buys her things you know, he buys her diamond rings, you know, she said so

She's in love with me and I feel fine, mm

Baby says she's mine, you know, she tells me all the time, you now, she said so

I'm in love with her and I feel fine

I'm so glad that she's my little girls, she's so glad she's telling all the world

That her baby buys her things you know, he buys her diamond rings, you know, she said so

She's in love with me and I feel fine, she's in love with me and I feel fine, mm

She's A Woman

Released as the B-side to "I Feel Fine," it is said that for once on a Beatles' record, Lennon sounded more sophisticated than McCartney when "I Feel Fine," was supported by the rowdy tune here. Although the guitar drops out a couple of times about midway through, it is nonetheless a great tune! It was recorded in seven takes on October 8, 1964.

My love don't give me presents, I know that she's no peasant

Only ever has to give me, love forever and forever

My love don't give me presents, turn me on when I get lonely

People tell me that she's only fooling, I know she isn't

She don't give boys the eye, she hates to see me cry

She is happy just to hear me, say that I will never leave her

She don't give boys the eye, she will never make me jealous

Gives me all her time as well as loving, don't ask me why

She's a woman who understands, she's a woman who loves her man My love don't give me presents, I know that she's no peasant

Only ever has to give me, love forever and forever

My love don't give me presents, turn me on when I get lonely

People tell me that she's only fooling, I know she isn't, woo oo oo, woo

She's a woman who understands, she's a woman who loves her man

She don't give boys the eye, she hates to see me cry

She is happy just to hear me, say that I will never leave her

She don't give boys the eye, she will never make me jealous

Gives me all her time as well as loving, don't ask me why

She's a woman, she's a woman, she's a woman, she's a woman, she's a woman

Bad Boy - Larry Williams

Another of The Beatles' remakes of a Larry Williams hit from 1959, it was recorded in four takes on May 10, 1965. Sung by Lennon with perfection, it tells the tale of an American juvenile delinquent. It first appeared on The Beatles American Capitol album, "Beatles VI, released on June 14, 1965, and in the UK on the album, "A Collection of Beatles Oldies," released on December 9, 1965.

Yes It Is

Another example of The Beatles three-part harmonies, in this, George Harrison made the most of his tone-pedal (wah-wah) sound. Issued as a B-side to "Ticket To Ride," it was recorded on February 16, 1965 in fourteen takes. It would not be released until seven weeks laterr on April 9,1965. The somewhat flat vocals undercut the beauty of the melody in this one. Quite a good song, The Beatles should have opted to throw-out this original attempt, spending more time rehearsing it, to give it the due it deserves.

If you wear red tonight, remember what I said tonight

For red is color that my baby wore, and what's more it's true, yes it is

Scarlet were clothes she wore, everybody know I'm sure

I would remember all the things we planned, understand it's true, yes it is, it's true, yes it is

I could be happy with you by my side, if I could forget her, but it's my pride

Yes it is, Oh, yes it is, yeah, please don't wear red tonight

This is what I said tonight, for red is the color that will make me blue

In spite of you it's true, yes it is, it's true, yes it is

I could be happy with you by my side, if I could forget her, but it's my pride

Yes it is, Oh, yes it is, yeah, please don't wear red tonight

This is what I said tonight, for red is the color that will make me blue

In spite of you it's true, yes it is, it's true, yes it is, it's true

I'm Down

Released as the B-side to "Help!" it was recorded on June 14, 1965 in seven takes. A raucous rocker screamed by Paul, this was his attempt to write and record a follow-up to "Long Tall Sally." A powerful piece of work, it never did get the attention his version of "Long Tall Sally," did. Regardless, The Beatles used this song to end every show they played in their last year of concerts, replacing "Long Tall Sally." Added to the magic of this song is George Harrison's stinging guitar solo.

You tell lies thinking I can't see, you can't cry 'cause you're laughing at me

I'm down, I'm down, I''m down, how can you laugh when you know I'm down?

How can you laugh when you know I'm down?

Man buys ring, woman throws it away, same old thing happen every day,

I'm down, I'm down, I''m down

How can you laugh when you know I'm down? How can you laugh when you know I'm down?

We're all alone and there's nobody else, she'll still moan, "Keep your hands to yourself"

I'm down, I'm down, I'm down

How can you laugh when you know I'm down? How can you laugh when you know I'm down? woo

A baby you know I'm down, I guess I'm down, I'm down on the ground, I'm down

Ah, baby I'm upside down, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm down
