So we know Love Of The Loved, Like Dreamers Do and Hello Little Girl as self-written songs they performed before June 1962. Together with Love Me Do. They had a couple of more (I'll Follow The Sun for instance), but those were obviously not ready for recording at the particular moment. Well, guess you are George Martin and have to make a choice between these four... I might still choose Love Me Do.
Sorry if I'm boring you, Bobber ... but IF I were Sir George and the songs were:
Love Of The Loved
Like Dreamers Do
Hello Little Girl and
Love Me Do
... the single would have been Hello Little Girl with Love Me Do as the B-side ... I still think that Hello Little Girl is more uptempo and fits beter with the kind of pop music in 1962, at least in Britland.
If I were thinking of two singles:
Hello Little Girl/Love Of The Loved
and Love Me Do/Like Dreamers Do
'cos my ranking would be:
Hello Little Girl
Love Me Do and Like Dreamers Do (these two very close)
Love Of The Loved
P.S. If I Saw Her Standing There was written when Paul was 17 and the famous line changed by John was already done I'm sure that the song was composed and arranged by that time tho there are some very little differences between Star Club and Please Please Me LP versions (the chorus for example) the main theme was there for sure ... a mystery for me is why they didn't recorded it for the single ... but they didn't make good decisions at the begining of their career ... Hello Little Girl and some others were rejected but how many mediocre covers they choosed instead of them and how many of the songs they gave away were hits in 1963 and specially 1964? Then we say that they'd not got enough material to record but that's not exactly true ... and the Anthologies and the songs they gave away prove this.
