P.S. Its George performing an acoustic version, not John.

Plus, it was Frank Sinatra's favorite "Lennon-McCartney" song, though it was written by George.

you have to think that after he did it the first time some sqeally little assistant corrected him so Frank continued to do it just to p*ss him off and show him that Frank dont make mistakes.  Plus audiences probably laughed.

See PC, you should give more kudos for Paulie. After all, Paul pretty much shunned Sinatra (not really, but he didnt have the time) and sent him a crap song he wrote when he was 16, after Frankie requested (over-bearingly so) Macca write one for him. Sinatra checked the tune out and said it was junk. Stayed a bit bitter for awhile.

I'll look the name of the song up later and post actual details of the event.

I know Paul had written a song when he was  young called SUICIDE, could that be it?


Anyway, in 1964 Sinatra, Dino and Bing Crosby did a recorded parody of the Beatles called THE
BUMBLERS.

I do believe the song was indeed 'Suicide', but I still havent looked up the details. I'll do it tomorrow for sure to verify.

Well, I guess there really isnt much to tell about the Sinatra episode, but here goes. In the 60's a songwriters supposedly greatest feat was to have Sinatra accept and record a song that they had writen. Well, Paul was a teenager and decided to write a song for Sinatra once while lying in bed. Of course, Paul came up with the song 'Suicide' that he wrote in a cabaret style. Here are some lyrics from that song-

'If when she tries to run away and he calls her back she comes,,,,,it's okay, because she's under both his thumbs....'
'She'll limp along to his side.....I call it suicide!'

Paul admits that it was a horrible song. Anyways, years passed and one day in Abbey Road studios Sinatra called. He asked Paul for a song since the Beatles were big at the time and Paul had a reputation for writing songs for other artists that did well. Paul didnt have anything ready so he dug up 'Suicide' and made a demo for old Frank.
