Beatles Album: A Hard Day’s Night: Track 2
Lyrics: Lennon and McCartney
The lyrics to the Beatles I should have known better came from John; this is quite surprising as the song is very optimistic in nature. Apart from the title sequences, it was the first song that was played in the film proper in a scene on the train in which the Beatles are playing cards.
I should have known better starts with a harmonica introduction by John, who then goes on to do lead vocals; which are double tracked.
John Lennon: Vocals, Acoustic guitar, Harmonica.
Paul McCartney: Bass guitar.
George Harrison: Lead Guitar
Ringo Starr: Drums
