The Beatles -- ‘Long Tall Sally’

Long Tall Sally (2.04)

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

This historic record was Little Richard’s biggest-ever hit, selling a million copies in 1956. It was also the very first song that Paul performed in public, way back in September ’57. And it also turned out to be the last song that The Beatles played in concert (not including the rooftop gig in ’69), because they closed their Candlestick Park gig with it in ’66.

If you listen carefully then you can hear Paul messing up a line at 0:52. The original lyric is supposed to go “Well Long Tally Sally, she’s built for speed…”, but he trips himself up coming in too early and ends up bumbling something like “Well Long Tally Sally, built, pretty feet she’s got…”.
