John Lennon, Paul McCartney
Paul McCartney wrote this song. Despite rumors to the contrary, he claimed it was not about a prostitute. Rather, the song makes a simple yet profound statement on what matters most in life. The word “Love” appeared in many Beatles lyrics, especially in their early songs.
This song was recorded on 29 January 1964 in Paris, although when The Beatles returned to Britain, George Harrison decided to overdub another lead guitar part in London. The original solo is still audible in the background.
