From Me To You (Lennon/McCartney)

Quotes

“You can’t do that. You’ll sound like a bunch of fucking fairies!” – Singer Kenny Lynch on the trademark “ooh!”

“John and Paul were sitting at the back of the coach and Kenny Lynch, who at this time fancied himself as a songwriter, sauntered up to the back of the coach and Kenny Lynch … decided he would help them write a song. After a period of about half-an-hour had elapsed and nothing seemed to be coming from the back, Kenny rushed to the front and shouted, ‘Well, that’s it. I am not going to write any more of that bloody rubbish with those idiots. They don’t know music from their backsides. That’s it! No more help from me!”‘ – Roger Greenway
