Beatles Song: I Should Have Known Better

This Beatles song was the B Side to "A Hard Day's Night," released in the U.S. on July 13, 1964. The most interesting fact about the song is that George used his twelve-string Rickenbacker, which then influenced many other groups, such as The Byrds. It's a Lennon composition recorded February 25 and 26, 1964, shortly after their return from America. The band performs the song (lip syncing) in the baggage car of the train in A Hard Day's Night. It is also performed at the end of the concert in the same film.

Lennon sings the lead, double-tracked, plays hamronica, and acoustic guitar. McCartney plays bass, Harrison lead, and Starr drums.
