On June 25th of 1963
John Lennon and Paul McCartney
began writing She Loves You on the tour bus
and continued later that night at their hotel in Newcastle, England
eventually completing it the following day
at Paul's family home in Forthlin Road, Liverpool
She Loves You set and surpassed several records
in the United Kingdom charts
and set a record in the United States
as one of the five Beatles songs
that held the top five positions in the charts simultaneously on April 4, 1964
Paul McCartney said years later..
"the initial idea for the song
began with Bobby Rydell's hit 'Forget Him' with its call and response pattern
and that as often happens you think of one song when you write another...
I'd planned an 'answering song'
where a couple of us would sing 'she loves you'
and the other ones would answer 'yeah yeah'...
We decided that was a crummy idea
but at least we then had the idea of a song called 'She Loves You'
So we sat in the hotel bedroom for a few hours and wrote it...
John and I were sitting on twin beds with guitars"
She Loves You was recorded on July 1st of 1963
using a two-track recording machine in less than a week after it was written
