View Full Version : The Beatles’ borrowed tunes

10-28-2005, 01:11 AM
So Paul lifted the bass riff for I Saw Her Standing There” from Chuck Berry’s “I’m Talking About You". John's "I Feel Fine" borrowed heavily from Bobby Parker’s "Watch Your Step". Same with George and The Chiffon’s He’s So Fine”. Are there any more Beatle songs that “borrowed” from other tunes?

This seems to be a duplicate thread, so I'm closing this one. Go to The beatles borrowed tunes (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?postid=6733037#post6733037) for discussion.
