Encyclopedia > I'll Get You

"I'll Get You" is a Beatles song. The song is primarily a John Lennon composition, although there is some possibility that the middle eight was co-written by Paul McCartney. The Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 as part of their first tour of the United States, promoting their first hit single there, I Want To Hold Your Hand. ... John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE (October 9, 1940 – December 8, 1980), (born John Winston Lennon, known as John Ono Lennon) was an iconic English 20th century rock and roll songwriter and singer, best known as the founding member of The Beatles. ...

The song, of which the working title was "Get you in the end", was originally slated to be the follow-up single to "From Me to You", but when it was finally released, it was as a B-Side. Like several of Lennon's compositions of the time, there is a slightly menacing ambiguity to the lyrics, which could equally well be interpreted as a promise or a threat. From Me To You is the name of the hit song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and released by their band, the Beatles, as a single in 1963. ... In recorded music, the terms A-side and B-side refer to the two sides of 7 inch vinyl records on which singles have been released since the 1950s. ...


The song was a B-side on two separate occasions. Recorded on July 1, 1963, it was initially released as the B-side of "She Loves You" (on August 28 in the United Kingdom and September 16 in the United States) and was also later released in the United States only on May 21, 1964 as the B-side of "Sie Liebt Dich", a German language recording of the previous A-side. Both were released on the Swan Records label in the United States - the only Beatles releases on that label (the British release was on Parlophone).

The song is unusual among Beatles songs of its period in that Lennon and McCartney, although both providing vocal tracks, sing in unison for the majority of the track, allowing the few occasions where they do harmonise to stand out. Furthermore, unlike most Beatles songs of the time, there is no lead break - the lead guitar, in fact, is virtually reduced to a second rhythm guitar. The most prominent instruments in the track are McCartney's bass and Lennon's harmonica.


I'll Get You is one of only four official Beatles recordings to have never been released in true stereo.
