The Beatles Song Of The Day: “No Reply”


The Beatles Song Of The Day is “No Reply.” “No Reply” is the first song on The Beatles “The Beatles For Sale” album. John Lennon wrote this song probably in May 1964 while on holiday. John Lennon: double-tracked vocal, rhythm guitar and handclaps/ Paul McCartney: harmony vocal, bass guitar and handclaps/ George Harrison: acoustic rhythm guitar and handclaps/ Ringo Starr: drums and handclaps/ George Martin: piano. The song was recorded on September 30th, 1964 at Abbey Road. Producer: George Martin. This is a downbeat opening to the new album. An outstanding John Lennon song though. A John Lennon song of betrayal and jealousy. John would later say that the song was based on a big hit from 1957, “Silhouettes” by The Rays. John would also say that he remembered their music publisher Dick James coming up to him and saying “You’re getting much better now-that was a complete story.”
