The Beatles -- ‘Ill Cry Instead’

I’ll Cry Instead (1.48)

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

This was done in two parts because when they tried to do the whole thing straight the way through it proved too difficult, so they ended up splicing on the ending at 1:44. Interestingly, the British version didn’t include this splice, but the Americans wanted to release the song as a single so they stuck it on the end to make it a little longer. This version also appears on the American ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ LP, whilst the British version appears on ‘Something New’.

The song was unceremoniously dumped from the movie after Dick Lester chose to repeat ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ instead.
