Every Little Thing

Every Little Thing was written by Paul McCartney while at his griflriend Jane Asher's house. Typically the author of a song sang lead but in this instance John sings lead, despite the fact that it's not one of his. 

Paul had hoped Every Little Thing would be issued as a single, but it was released on Beatles for Sale instead.

I Don't Want to Spoil the Party

I Dont Want  to Spoil the Party was written by John Lennon; a somber, introspective song about being stood up at a party by a girl. A lot of John's writing at that time was fused with emotional turmoil.

What You're Doing

What You're Doing was another one of Paul's songs, believed to be written about his then girlfriend Jane Asher, who was extremely influential on Paul's songwriting between 1963 and 1967.
