OK, more Fabdom: This Dixon/Farrell tune was first recorded by the Shirelles in 1960. The Beatles recorded it in one take in '63 as part of their first album, changing the lyrics as it was originally a "girl" song. This was Ringo's first recorded vocal lead. Before him, Pete Best sang lead vocals on it during their live shows. Ringo also sang lead when performed by Rory Storm and The Hurricanes.

Yesterday's answer: "Baby It's You". I'm partial to The Beatles' version (no surprise!).
