“She Loves You” is a song by The Beatles written in and recorded in 1963 thanks to John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The song tells the story of a man who thinks that he has lost his love for good until he reaffirms from a friend that she is still in love with him.
Lennon and McCartney struck inspiration for the song after a concert at the Majestic Ballroom in Newcastle where they toured with Roy Orbison and Gerry & The Pacemakers. McCartney shared the story, saying: “There was a Bobby Rydell song out at the time ‘Forget Him’ and, as often happens, you think of one song when you write another. We were in a van up in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. I’d planned an answering song where a couple of us would sing ‘She loves you’ and the other ones would answer ‘Yeah Yeah.’ We decided that was a crummy idea but at least we then had the idea of a song called She Loves You. So we sat in the hotel bedroom for a few hours and wrote it; John and I, sitting on twin beds with guitars.”
The famous vocal hook “Yeah, yeah, yeah” almost became “Yes, yes, yes” as McCartney’s father thought the latter would sound more dignified. Also, the falsetto “Woooh” that precedes the song’s breakdown was taken from the Isley Brother’s version of “Twist and Shout”. McCartney said the band used it in a lot of songs moving forward.
“She Loves You” set new records on the UK Charts upon release, and became one of the five Beatles songs in America to have held the top five positions simultaneously on April 4, 1964.
