Baby It's You

The 10th song on Please Please Me was called Baby It's You and written by Mack David, Barney Williams and Burt Bacharach. Always a good question during a Beatles Quiz: what Burt Bacharach song did the Beatles record? :)

It was sung by John Lennon and also recorded by the Shirelles. Amazing how many songs of the Shirelles the Beatles recorded (or tried to in their style), maybe that's why some people referred to them as the "male Shirelles" at one time.

The song was part of The Beatles stage show from roughly 1961 till 1963, and can also be heard on many bootleg records and on the BBC radio shows.
