Please Please Me

“Please Please Me” was the second single released by the Beatles in the United Kingdom, and the first to be issued in the United States. It was also the title track of their first British LP, which was recorded to capitalize on the success of the single. It was a John Lennon composition. He stated that “Please Please Me is my song completely. It was my attempt at writing a Roy Orbison song”.

The single was released in the UK in January 1963 and reached No. 1 on the New Musical Express and Melody Maker charts.

The single was released in the USA in January 1964 with “From Me to You” on the B-side and it reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100.

My instrumental arrangement basically follows the original in form.
