If I Fell

"If I Fell" was recorded at Abbey Road Studios on February 27, 1964, shortly after the Beatles completed their first American visit. It was part of the soundtrack for A Hard Day's Night, although it was released as a single (the B side to "And I Love Her").

This Lennon song features what fans believe to be some of the best Lennon-McCartney harmony on any Beatles song. The very interesting Beatles fact is that Lennon believed this to be his first real ballad, as well as a precursor to his mellow "In My Life."

Lennon played acoustic rhythm guitar and sang the lead vocal with McCartney, who played bass; Harrison played lead guitar, and Starr played drums.
