I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER ~ THE BEATLES
"I Should Have Known Better" is a song composed by John Lennon (credited to Lennon–McCartney), and originally released by The Beatles on the United Kingdom version of A Hard Day's Night, their soundtrack for the film of the same name.The song is performed in the train compartment scene of A Hard Day's Night. It was in fact filmed in a van, with crew members rocking the vehicle to fake the action of a train in motion.An orchestrated version of the song conducted by George Martin appears on the North American version of the album. The first recording session for the song was on 25 February 1964 at Abbey Road Studios when three takes were attempted, but only one was complete. Take 2 was aborted when Lennon broke into hysterics over his harmonica playing. In the US, "I Should Have Known Better" was released on 13 July 1964 as the B-side to "A Hard Day's Night" and reached No. 53 in the Billboard Top 100.
