I Need You (Harrison)

Distinct in Beatles history because it was the first Beatles track to feature use of a volume petal on guitar, I Need You was written by George for Patti and used in the film A Hard Day’s Night. It was not even worthy of mention in George’s 1980 autobiography I Me Mine. Contrary to many books, the song was not written during the Bahama scenes of the film, as recorded was started before the scenes were shot.
