Click here to hear my conversation with Neil Diamond just before the holidays, discussing his career, his engagement, and his tour, coming to the Q July 1st.
Today on the Fab 4 at 4, I'll be playing tracks from Something New!
Something New is The Beatles' third Capitol LP release, but fifth American album following the United Artists release of A Hard Day's Night.
"Things We Said Today" is a song by the Beatles written by Paul McCartney, credited to Lennon–McCartney and composed for the film A Hard Day's Night.
McCartney wrote the song in May 1964 while cruising the Caribbean aboard a yacht called Happy Days with his then-girlfriend Jane Asher and is one of three main compositions (along with "And I Love Her" and "Can't Buy Me Love") that he wrote for the film. The Beatles recorded "Things We Said Today" in three takes on 2 June 1964.
The Beatles included "Things We Said Today" as part of their live set during their 1964 tour of the United States and Canada, although it was dropped afterwards. George Harrison sang harmony vocals alongside Paul McCartney during the performances.
McCartney played the song regularly during The Paul McCartney World Tour in 1989 and 1990 and included it in his 1991 MTV Unplugged performance.
