#69- ‘Drive My Car’ – the lead off track- and one of eight songs from Rubber Soul to crack the Hot 100. Written by Paul McCartney with some help from John Lennon. It was also the lead off track in America to the ‘Yesterday and Today’ album. As Paul tells it he arrived at John Lennon’s mansion- with the tune in his head but the lyrics were a disaster- which John told him. So they worked on it -and after some difficulty- it was ‘Drive My Car’ which Paul later said was an old blues euphemism for sex. While ‘Drive My Car’ wasn’t released as a single- I could see this being a hit if it had. Of course you could say that about a lot of Beatles songs.
