I have this theory that every person my age has heard every single Beatles song. Perhaps some we’ve heard just once, like You Know My Name Look Up My Number. But we’ve heard every one, somewhere.
This is why I was surprised to hear of an entire Beatles album I’d never heard of before.
Beatles: For Sale
Then I read that one was released mainly in the United Kingdom. In the US most of the songs were on Beatles ‘65.
My next question: how crappy is this album? And, have I heard every song?
Answers: not crappy but creepy, and yes, on the US record there were some covers I’d never heard, but on Beatles For Sale there were three Lennon/MCartney songs I’d never heard: Every Little Thing, I Don't Want to Spoil the Party, and What You're Doing.
I felt the sentiment in Every Little Thing was particularly creepy. “Every little thing she does / She does for me, yeah / And you know the things she does / She does for me, oooh,” Uuuugh.
