This Boy






The BEATLES





John Lennon

And The BEATLES


"THIS BOY"


"This Boy" was a beautiful sweet song from the Beatles early innocent years. It features John Lennon singing along with George Harrison and Paul McCartney playing acoustic guitars and harmonizing along with John.

This Boy was written in 1963 by John Lennon (credited to Lennon & McCartney version y). The song was actually the Side B on the Beatles Smash Hot 45 RPM "I Want to Hold Your" though for me "This Boy" is a far superior song in style and overall feeling. The song was featured on the album MEET THE BEATLES, issued in 1964. 

The Beatles performed THIS BOY live on The Ed SULLIVAN SHOW in New York on February 16th 1964.

An instrumental version of THIS BOY was orchestrated by George Martin for the movie "A Hard Days Night" for the towpath scene with Ringo Starr. This instrumental was on the American release of the soundtrack album for a Hard Day's Night and titled Ringo's Song, which featured Jimmy Paige on guitar.

The Smithereens covered The Beatles THIS BOY in 2007 on thier album MEET THE SMITHEREENS.
