Cool song. Sounds perfect for the Everly Brothers.

The other Beatles' penned tune to reach no. 1 in the U.S. performed by another artist (Elton John) was Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds which stayed two weeks at no. 1 in January, 1975. That tune was mainly written by Elton John's friend, John Lennon, who also sang backup on Elton's version. Another tune that hit no. 1 in the U.K (but not the U.S., where it got to no. 9) was "Bad To Me" written mainly by John Lennon and recorded in 1963 by British invasion singer Billy Kramer & The Dakotas. Kramer and the Dakotas were also managed by Brian Epstein and produced by George Martin. Kramer recorded a string of tunes composed by the Beatles and they almost single-handedly created his career.
