The Beatles -- ‘Shes A Woman’

She’s A Woman (3.03)

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

This was Paul’s attempt at writing a Little Richard song.

It was also the first Beatles song to contain an explicit reference to drugs (where he says “turns me on when I get lonely”), but it was so vague that it slipped past the censors. When they later tried using the same phrase in ‘A Day In The Life’, it was immediately banned by the BBC.

Apparently John insisted that they put it in to give a clue to the fans about their recent conversion to pot, six weeks earlier, in Bob Dylan’s hotel room.
