The Beatles - Yes It Is (Lyrics)

2y ago


*''I would remember all the things we planned...'' a small correction at 0:48 "Yes It Is" is a 1965 Beatles song written by John Lennon (credited to Lennon--McCartney) which was first released as the B-side to "Ticket to Ride". It features some of the Beatles' most complex and dissonant three-part vocal harmonies and showcases George Harrison's early use of volume pedal guitar. In his 1980 interview with Playboy, John Lennon described it as an attempt to rewrite "This Boy" (the style of the song) that "didn't quite work". Paul McCartney on the other hand described it as "a very fine song of John's", and said he was present when Lennon wrote it Over the course of a five hour recording session, the Beatles attempted fourteen takes of the basic track before perfecting it, more than any other song they recorded in 1965
