The Beatles Song of the Day is You Know My Name {Look Up The Number} which was the b-side of the Let It Be single. It appears on the Past Masters II collection. You Know My Name- was written by John Lennon.  It is one of the most unusual and obscure of Beatles songs. The song began back in the summer of 1967 and was completed when John and Paul added vocals in the spring of 1969. The Beatles were a big fan of British comedy- especially The Goons- and this is a comedy record. Paul has called it his favorite Beatles track. This was towards the end- and he was with John in the studio and they were having fun.  “We had these endless, crazy fun sessions and it was just hilarious to put the record together.It’s not a great melody or anything, it’s just unique.”- It is too bad there weren’t more days like this as the Beatles time together drew to a close. Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones plays alto saxophone on the song.  John Lennon: lead vocals, backing vocals, spoken vocals, guitar, maracas, sound effects: Paul McCartney: lead vocals, piano, bass, handclaps, sound effects: George Harrison: lead guitar, vibraphone: Ringo Starr: drums, timbales, bongos: Brian Jones: alto saxophone:Mal Evans: sound effects: Produced by George Martin.

  1. Never heard of this before. Crazily the last minute or so sounds like it could be a muppets skit with one of the monsters mumbling his way thru the lyrics 😀
