Composition

The song was co-written but based on McCartney's initial idea.[1] Originally titled "Seventeen", the song was conceived by McCartney driving home from a concert in Southport, Merseyside[2] and later completed at his Forthlin Road home in September 1962[1] McCartney said: “I had: “She was just seventeen,” and then: “Beauty queen”. When I showed it to John, he screamed with laughter, and said “You’re joking about that line, aren’t you?”[2] "It was one of the first times he ever went "What? Must change that..."[3] The lyrics were written on a Liverpool Institute exercise book. Remember, a book by McCartney's brother Mike McCartney, includes a photograph of Lennon and McCartney writing the song while strumming guitars and reading the exercise book. McCartney admits to lifting his bass line directly from a Chuck Berry song called "I'm Talking About You" (1961).[1] 20 Forthlin Road is a National Trust property in south Liverpool, Merseyside, England. ...

Recording

The song was recorded at Abbey Road Studios on 11 February 1963, as part of the marathon recording session that produced 10 of the 14 songs on Please Please Me.

On the album, the song starts with a rousing "one-two-three-FOUR!" count-in by McCartney (pronounced "one-two-three-FAH!"). Usually, these count-ins are edited off the final audio mix. However, this was left on by record producer George Martin, as it was considered especially spirited,[3] and began the album in an upbeat vein. Music journalist, Richard Williams suggests that this dramatic introduction to their debut album was just as stirring as Elvis Presley’s "Well, it’s one for the money, two for the show…" on his opening track, Blue Suede Shoes, for his debut album seven years earlier[5] and makes the statement that the Beatles were a performing band as they also opened their live set in this way. However, by listening to outtakes of the song, one can hear that the count-in is actually from take 9, while the master take is actually take 12. (Take 12 was not preceded by a loud count-in)[citation needed]. George Martin initially contemplated recording the Please Please Me LP live at the Cavern in front of their own audience[6] and visited the Liverpool club to experience the Beatles phenomenon for himself.[7] But when time constraints intervened it was decided to book them into the Abbey Road studios instead.
