"She's a Woman" is a song by The Beatles. It was released as the B-side to "I Feel Fine" in 1964, their last single release that year. It reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 from frequent airplay. The song, penned by Paul McCartney (though credited to Lennon–McCartney), was his attempt at imitating the vocal style of Little Richard. This is why the song is in such a high register, even for McCartney's tenor range. Some takes of the song (especially recordings of live concerts) feature an extended outro. John Lennon was quoted as saying, "We were so excited to say 'turn me on' --you know, about marijuana and all that... using it as an expression." The structure of the song is fairly simple, with the melody carried mostly by McCartney's voice. His bass and a backing piano produce a countermelody, with Lennon's guitar playing chords on the backbeat. During the first verse, the piano also plays chords on the upbeats. George Harrison plays a bright guitar solo during the middle eight. The Beatles started including the song in their live shows in 1965.
