The Beatles Song Of The Day: “Yes It Is”

slicethelife

The Beatles Song Of The Day is “Yes It Is.” “Yes It Is” was the b-side of “Ticket To Ride.’ “Yes It Is” was written by John Lennon. He would later say it was a failed attempt to re-write “This Boy.” Paul would later say that he rather liked the song and while John was dismissive of the song I tend to agree with Paul on this one. This is one of John’s most romantic Beatles songs. I love John’s vocals on this song. John Lennon: double-tracked vocal and acoustic rhythm guitar/ Paul McCartney: harmony vocal and bass guitar/ George Harrison: harmony vocal and lead guitar/ Ringo Starr: drums and tambourine. The song was recorded on February 16th,1964 at Abbey Road. Producer: George Martin.
