Happy birthday to "Beatles For Sale". I've always liked the album, especially this song :

The beatles. "I don't want to spoil the party"


"That was a very personal one of mine. In the early days, I wrote less material than Paul because he was more competent on guitar than I. He taught me quite a lot of guitar, really." - John Lennon
