    Beatles Album: With the beatles: Track 4

    Year: 1963

    Lyrics: Harrison

    Length: 2.28

    The lyrics of the Beatles song don’t bother me were by George Harrison and the song itself was the first Harrison song to be recorded by the Beatles. He wrote the song in august 1963 in Bournemouth; at the time the Beatles were playing a six night set at the town’s Gaumont Cinema.

    More than anything else George wrote the song to see if he could do it, he was feeling under the weather at the time, perhaps this influenced the lyrics of don’t bother me to a certain extent. Alternatively it is possible that don’t bother me is aimed at the founder of the music paper ‘Merseybeat’ who used to constantly ask George if he has written any new songs recently.

    Musically this was a ground breaking track for the Beatles as it contained many instruments away from what they would normally play; these included Bongos by Ringo, tambourine by John and claves by Paul. George has double tracked lead vocals on don’t bother me.
