The Beatles -- ‘If I Fell’

If I Fell (2.22)

John Lennon: Lead vocal, acoustic guitar; Paul McCartney: Lead vocal, bass guitar; George Harrison: Lead guitar; Ringo Starr: Drums;

This was supposedly about one of John’s numerous real-life affairs, but because there’s no love interest in the ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ movie he ends up crooning it to Ringo instead.

It marked a further step in John’s lyrical progression by harping-back to an earlier song – ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’. You can hear him singing “Love is more than just holding holds.”

“It was my first attempt at a proper ballad,” he said. “It was the precursor to ‘In My Life’. It has the same chord sequences: D and B minor and E minor, those kind of things.”
