Wait!  I like Don't Pass Me By!  It's good ol' bluegrass.  I grew up in North Carolina and down there we like bluegrass.  And grits too!

But it sounds better when these guys play it...

Even George didn't care for this one...

"We've just come across that, and it's the most weird song. I've no recollection of ever recording it. It's got stupid words and is the naffest song.  No wonder it didn't make it onto anything."

If Revolution 9 came on the radio I would run to turn it off. If I had no control over said radio I would leave or put my fingers in my ears and hum something soothing like "Wild Honey Pie".  ;D

That's actually not a bad version at all. But I agree with nimrod, the original 'Don't Pass Me By' is the worst Beatles song ever recorded to my ears.

You might jes' like bluegrass, then.  If'n you'd like to live here in the US, let's all see if'n you can pass this here North Carolina Residency Examination:


                                   NORTH CAROLINA IMMIGRATION SERVICES


During the past few years, North Carolina has seen an incredible influx of immigrants from foreign lands, such as New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and California.  Because of our continued practice of southern hospitality, we have allowed all immigrants to enter our state without first ensuring that the immigrant was culturally, spiritually, intellectually, and financially compatible with the other residents of North Carolina.  As a result of substandard immigrants entering our state, the North Carolina immigration office has composed the following application/entrance exam.  A score of at least 70 percent is required before an immigrant is granted privileges to inhabit any section of North Carolina.  An official North Carolina Immigration officer will assist you in filling out the application since several parts of the application require either verbal or physical investigation to ensure adequate entrance level readiness for residency in North Carolina.

I dont care what George said, that songs better than 'Act Naturally' and 'Honey Dont'.


Truth is Buck Owens And His Buckaroos and Carl Perkins did them a whole lot better...


Buck Owens & His Buckaroos - Act Naturally [Live] - 1966


Here, Don Rich does what it takes Paul and George to do here...


The Beatles (Ringo Starr) - ''Act Naturally'' [Live]





Carl Perkins - Honey Don't (Original)

Here's an early take of Carl Perkins' Honey Don't...

CARL PERKINS alternate take 2 HONEY DON'T SUN 1955 SUNBOX 101


Sometimes I love you every Saturday night
Sunday morning you don't look right
You've been out a paintin' the town
Lookout gal you've been sleepin' around
So ah hah honey don't!

Sometime you will, baby, when you won't
I know you can even if you don't
So tell me baby that you sure love me
Ah hah oh honey please
Ah hah, oh honey don't!

Too funny! I wish I'd had an abbreviated (and enlarged) one of those when I lived in Virginia to wave at people whose cards sported bumper stickers that read "Happiness Is a Yankee Headed North." (As a native of New York State, that rankled, even though I know I should have risen above the annoyance.)

I share your indignation! That's on the anti-yankee sentiment. I would have just quoted that part but I'm on my phone and I don't know how! roll:)

Relax, Kathy and Kelley.  I think the bumper sticker is just an example of good ol' southern humor and nothing more.

The North Carolina Residency Application was written by an RN I know.  She's from Blowing Rock, NC  They know how to poke fun at themselves as well.

Cheer up, Kev.  At least we got to hear the rejected Carl Perkins take of Honey Don't.  How that has anything to do with the worst Beatles song, I don't know, but we got to hear it.  ;)
