If I Needed Someone

If I Needed Someone” was written by George Harrison and recorded by the Beatles for their 1965 album Rubber Soul. In North America, it was one of the tracks that Capitol Records omitted from Rubber Soul and instead included on the 1966 release Yesterday and Today.

Harrison wrote the song for fiancée Pattie Boyd (also known as Eric Clapton’s “Layla”), whom he married in January 1966.  The song serves as an example of the reciprocal influences exchanged between the Beatles and the American folk rock band the Byrds during the mid 1960s.
