The Beatles Lyrics: The Unseen Story Behind Their Lyrics

The only authorised biographer of The Beatles and especial friend of Sir Paul McCartney, Hunter Davies shares the engaging stories behind the lyrics of The Beatles’ songs. Based upon the original versions of the classic songs which were often scribbled on pieces of paper or backs of envelopes, Davies offers a unique insight into the creative process of Lennon and McCartney – what they were thinking; how they changed their minds; and then came up with the words we all now know. Discover the story behind the The Ticket to Ride or was it actually The Ticket to Ryde?
