What is everybody's favorite song John, Paul, George, or Ringo wrote, but gave to another artist or group?

"A World Without Love" is a very good song that Paul gave to Peter and Gordon. I like their accents when they say the word "lock."a-hard-days-night-paul-8

I've always liked I'll Be On My Way (*love* the BBC version) and That Means A Lot (love the Help! outtake version). World Without Love and Goodbye (Paul's demo is exquisite) are also great ones.

World Without Love would be my fave but the demo of One and One is Two is very cute, especially in its sound quality as it sounds stuck in time (i havent heard whoever covered its version, i forget their name – but the song did nothing). So is Im In Love.

I always remember how John thought World Without love was funny because of its opening line "please lock me away".

John wrote Bad To Me, and there's a '63 demo around before he gave it away to whoever.

Is there a boot that has demos of all the songs they gave away? I'd love to hear Beatles versions of them all, not the artists who eventually did them.

For Come And Get It, just take a look at the Anthology version. Paul played all the instruments. As for Bad To Me..

There's a World Without Love one too, but it's pretty bad quality and hard to tell it's Paul.

As far as i know the Paul demo for World Without Love has never been bootlegged, whats out there is not Paul.

How about Goodbye? It's just gorgeous…I wish it'd ended up on the White Album just as is.

I like Come And Get It as well as Sour Milk Sea.
