    That song is nearer to Roy Wood than The Beatles ('Blackberry Way').

    I was just naming Harrison or Starkey written songs for fun because they were Beatles.
    However, I could see Paul writing Octopuses Garden and Don't Pass Me By and John coming up with Don't Bother Me.

    What makes you think that they did not?........
    Cut and paste Wiki:

    With record producer George Martin, the song "Do You Want to Know a Secret?" was a number two UK Singles Chart hit in 1963,[2] (but number one in some charts), and was backed by another tune otherwise unreleased by the Beatles, "I'll Be on My Way". After this impressive breakthrough another Lennon–McCartney pairing, "Bad to Me" c/w "I Call Your Name", reached number one.[2] It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc.[3] "I'll Keep You Satisfied" ended the year with a respectable number four placing.[2]

    Kramer was given a series of songs specially written for him by John Lennon and Paul McCartney which launched him into stardom. "I'll Keep You Satisfied", "From a Window", "I Call Your Name" and "Bad to Me" earned him appearances on the television programmes, Shindig!, Hullabaloo and The Ed Sullivan Show. (Kramer had also been offered Lennon–McCartney's "I'm in Love", and recorded a version in October 1963. In the end, it was shelved and the song was instead given to the Fourmost. In the 1990s, a Kramer CD compilation album included Kramer's version, as well as some recording studio banter on which John Lennon's voice could be heard).

    Here is John Lennon.....with `The Dakotas`!

    I love each and every one of those songs - but I don't see any mention of the one I posted ("I Know") which to me sounds very much like something John & Paul could write at the time.

    LOVE that video you posted! :righton:

    You could keep that list going very deep with Travis.

    Paul McCartney is a big fan of Fran Healy.

    Every time I hear the opening "Well..." I think of John's early Beatles singing voice.

    Again, nothing like a Beatles song and predates them by a number of years.

    Nothing to do with Lennon/McCartney songs, they just recorded them.
