Apparently Matchbox was intended to be on AHDN, never knew that, but just happened to be reading the piece on Matchbox as it was song of the day.

''In June 1964 the group were considering which songs to record for their third long player, A Hard Day's Night. Matchbox was intended to be Ringo's feature on the album, but was later deemed surplus to requirements and so it appeared on the Long Tall Sally EP.''

I must say it wouldn't have fitted in on AHDN anyway. Doesn't really go well with the rest imo.

All the 13 songs were already recorded, and:

Ringo: Hey guys, what song I'm going to sing?

Paul: No Ringo, you're not gonna sing in this album

Ringo: Why!?

John: Because you already chose the title of the album. That's enough participation!

Ringo: But we need 14 songs!

Paul: Meh!

Sorry if I missed this previously...I've been without internet for 10 days (moving house...). I thought I'd recalled that I Call Your Name was the intended song but didn't make the cut.

Apparently it had been written long before that. The article on the song says it was written even before Hamburg. It was indeed held off AHDN due to it's similarity to You Can't Do That. So that doesn't necessarily mean it was intended to be the 14th song, right? Am I the only one who thinks it's funny that they obviously had enough songs but still only put 13 songs on the album?

I'd never thought about this...I can also hear Ringo doing I'll Cry Instead....as it stands, the album seems to lack a proper ending, so I would have picked No Reply to close it.

Interesting choice - but then 13 is my lucky number so it's nice to have one of their albums with that number of songs on it :)

And welcome aboard!!

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.
