In March 1962 German Polydor planned to follow up Tony Sheridan’s widely successful ‘My Bonnie’ single with ‘Why / Cry For A Shadow’ – two songs which involved The Beatles as a back-up band. But they chose to go with ‘Ich Lieb’ Dich So / Der Kiss-Me Song’ instead – two songs which didn’t involve the Beatles at all.

Their plans rapidly changed in the winter of 1963 when Beatlemania started sweeping the UK. And because the B-side was a Beatles-only track (ableit, just an instrumental) ‘Why’ was demoted to the flip.
