The Beatles: Can YOU guess the song John Lennon and Paul McCartney made up 'on the spot'

Saturday, July 04, 2020

John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote so many incredible Beatles songs. But did you know they made up one on the spot so they could go watch TV? According to Far Out Magazine, the singer-songwriters were working on The White Album when a movie they wanted to see came on.

In 1968 McCartney said: “What happened was The Girl Can’t Help It was on television.

“That’s an old rock film with Little Richard and Fats Domino and Eddie Cochran and a few others.

“We wanted to see it, so we started recording at five o’clock.

“And we said, ‘We’ll do something, We’ll make up a backing track.’”
