"Ask Me Why" by The Beatles.

OK, more Fabdom: This '62 Lennon/McCartney gem represents THE first time that the two blokes actually wrote a song physically together. B-side to "Please Please Me", their first US single. Used in the early Parlophone auditions when Pete Best was still their drummer. The opening guitar line comes from Smokey Robinson and The Miracles' "What's So Good About Goodbye?". Lennon was greatly influenced by Robinson.

Yesterday's answer: "White Room" by Cream. " country, no gold pavements, tired starlings.Silver horses run down moonbeams in your dark eyes. Dawn-light smiles on you leaving, my contentment....". Clapton WAS GOD! Guitar line suspiciously similar to "Tales Of Brave Ulysses" - hmm, Eric, what were you thinking - or not!
