Tune facts

From AllMusic.com:

The Strangers with Mike Shannon (that is specifically exactly how they were billed, not the other means around) had the honor, or misfortune, of extending the a lot of obscure Lennon-McCartney song that was “offered away” to one more artist in the 1960s, and not recorded by the Beatles. This song was their May 1964 single “One and One Is Two,” and that did not chart in either the U.K. or the UNITED STATE Of all the songs that dropped into this category (via the feasible exemption of Carlos Mendes’ Paul McCartney-penned “Penina“), “One and One Is Two” was the many forgettable. A rather traditional and also plodding Merseybeat number without the melodic imagination that identified even the weakest and also the majority of primitive songs the Beatles did on their first recordings, it attracted bit notification at a time as soon as Lennon-McCartney were the most in-demand also composers in famous music.

 had a quite even more complex history than ssuggest popping up on the Strangers 45 and also disshowing up. The complace was reportedly intended for usage by Billy J. Kramer, that had currently extended several Lennon-McCartney tunes for hits. It was written while the Beatleswere playing an extensive engagement in Paris at the start of 1964, and a demo of McCartney singing the song and accompanying himself on piano has actually been bootlegged. It has been reported thatJohn Lennon said that if Kramer recorded the song, he (Kramer) would certainly be finiburned. In his extensive intersee for Playboy, the ever-gracious Lennon called it “another of Paul’s poor attempts at creating a song.

The song was available to Kramer, that determined not to document it. It was then available to an additional Liverpool act that common administration with Brian Epstein, the Foura lot of, that had currently extended a couple of Lennon-McCartney songs that were not done by the Beatles for hit singles. They did provide it a shot however, as singer and also lead guitarist Brian O’Hara remembered in Beatles Undercover, “McCartney came into the studio and played bass on “One and One Is Two,” yet there just wasn’t any kind of meat in the song and we couldn’t obtain everywhere through it.” Therefore rejected by two artists (three if you count the Beatles, too), it made its method to the lowly Strangers via Mike Shannon. <…>
