Beatles Album: Let It be : Track 9
Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney
Although appearing on their last album to be released the one after 909 is one of the first songs that the Beatles ever wrote so could easily have appeared on the please please me album!
The one after 909 song was written in 1957 by John Lennon in the style of an American train song. It was first recorded by the Beatles in 1963, but rejected by George Martin for use on the with the Beatles album.
One after 909 was recorded as part of the live concert on the apple rooftop; this gives the recording an unrefined feel.
