Was going through youtube today looking up different McCartney Beatle-era songs that he's played live in recent years, and upon looking for a couple that didn't have any matches, it made me think of what Beatle songs have never been played before a live audience, either by the Beatles themselves (which as we know leaves out everything from Sgt. Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, White Album, Yellow Submarine, and Abbey Road) or by individual Beatles in Concert.  John, as we know, rarely performed live post-Beatles, and didn't really play too many Beatles songs when he did.  I'm assuming Ringo has played all of the songs he's sung lead on with the All-Star band, but not sure how many George played outside of his late-Beatle standards.  Even Paul has left off a selected group of his songs from his setlists and casually introduces them into his tours (for example: The Night Before on last year's tour).  So just interested to see if we can compile a full list of never played live songs.

PPM - everything was performed live as a band.

WTB – It Wont Be Long, All ive Got To Do, Dont Bother Me, Little Child, Hold Me Tight(?), Not A Second Time.

AHDNTell Me Why, Any Time At All, When I Get Home, I'll Be Back. Im Happy just to Dance with You, Ill Cry instead was done for the bbc but not done live as was I Should Have Known Better.

Beatles For SaleNo Reply, I Dont Want To Spoil the Party. Not sure if Paul has done Every Little Thing, Eight Days A Week or What Youre Doing live. Words Of Love was probably in their live set before they made it.

Help. I Need You, You Like Me Too Much, Its Only Love, Youre Going To Lose That Girl, You've Got To Hide Your Love Away, Tell Me What You See(?)

Rubber Soul. Run For Your Life, Girl, Think For Yourself(?), Wait(?), Norwegian Wood. Surely Ringo has done What Goes On. George did In My Life in '74 but changed the lyrics.

This is semi on topic, so I ask your understanding, but I remember reading in an interview, I think with John, how so many of their songs they never really played. Meaning they were only played when they were recorded in the studio and then left alone and put away. Yes Paul has brought some out – but as a group a lot of their songs (obviously the later years), even when played in the studio they weren't "played" as much as they were constructed piece by piece and track by track.

This was the driving force behind Let It Be – to play complete songs and record them. To recapture the essence of "the band". The ironic thing is they stopped being "a band" after HELP.

I am not knocking any of it (please don't hear that) just commenting.

Great list MMM. There's also the pre-Revolver standalone singles and B-sides. Yes It Is, We Can Work It Out and Rain were never played live as far as I know, despite being released at a time when the band were still touring (just about).

Fantastic list!  Obviously since John isn't around to sing his songs, it's good that Paul has occasionally brought out some of the songs that John was the primary writer/vocalist such as "The Word" and "She Loves You".  

Ringo has definitely played What Goes On…it's on youtube.  I'm guessing he's played every Ringo vocal Beatles song live except Good Night.

I know Paul has commented about how some songs they've only played a couple of times to record and haven't played again, which of course makes sense considering they weren't a live band for their non-LIB later catalog.  He's also said that he knows only a handful of regulars off hand and has to reteach himself the songs he wrote before he takes them on tour.  So when he brings out something like "The Night Before" from last year's tour, he's literally playing the song for the first time since it was recorded in the 60's.

 

I'm interested in what you mean by them not being 'a band' after Help.  Are you saying because John and Paul (and George/Ringo) wrote their songs by themselves more often than not?  To the best of my knowledge they still composed a large majority of their music together as a band until the White Album.

We Can Work It Out was played live during the '65 UK christmas tour, sadly no audio has ever surfaced.

Depends on what is meant by "band". They were very much together when recording Rubber Soul and Revolver. The separation on their albums began during Pepper when Ringo was hanging about for hours playing chess waiting to be summoned and George wasnt that interested in the recordings preferring to be studying the sitar and all things Indian.

I typed an error in my last post. I'll Cry Instead is in the wrong place (it was a late addition) as it wasnt recorded for the BBC. It should read

AHDNTell Me Why, Any Time At All, When I Get Home, I'll Be Back. Ill Cry Instead. Im Happy just to Dance with You was done for the bbc but not done live as was I Should Have Known Better.

Will also add that the beatles mimed I Should Have Known Better on the tv programme ‘Scene at 6:30’, aired 16th October 1964. They also mimed It Wont Be Long live on an edition of Ready Steady Go on 20th March 1964, and Yes It Is and Rain on separate episodes of Top of The Pops (obviously). I think they mimed Eight Days A Week on Thank Your Lucky Stars in 1965, possible February. Doesnt really have much to do with the original question and unfortunately 3 of the clips are thought lost forever but viewers of the show would have seen a kind of performance.

I meant HELP the album – but what I meant really was that with each album after HELP, they less and less played as band together. Even in the studio if you read the recording logs, songs were being constructed track by track. And even in the rare moments when all four played at once, often even one of those tracks would re-done later.

I guess what I'm getting at is even in a song like Yer Blues, they didn't really rehearse, they had the luxury of the studio as their work shop. I acknowledge that they were highly collaborative still but a "band", less and less.

This is why during the movie Let It Be, Paul in a conversation with John talks about getting back to being a band. And John is disinterested. Because to him is no band. Thus the statement "We got tired of being session men for Paul" (Lennon Remembers) – John is saying they were no longer a band – even if they were playing at the same time.

To me the disintegration began after the HELP album. It wasn't in one shot, but a steady deconstruction.

OK, I can see what you are saying a little bit better. From reading Geoff Emerick's book, he made it seem like the Beatles were still functioning as a band and working together for pretty much everything on Revolver. Geoff doesn't really become the head engineer until that point so has less insight on recording Rubber Soul, but you'd assume it was at least as involved as Revolver. I mean yes the Beatles had decided to experiment a lot more in the studio, especially after touring, so their songs were being put together differently and it wasn't necessarily just 4 guys playing the song through until they get a good take and begin to overdub, but the impression I had reading the book is that the Revolver-era Beatles were still collaborating together coming up with creative ideas to make a song sound better, even if they were essentially recording on seperate tracks and creating a song.

I guess it all comes down to what your definition of what acting like a band is. But I respect your opinion and don't doubt that the cohesiveness of the band could have changed post-Help, having really gotten worse after RS and Revolver.

Take what you've written and what I've written, mash 'em together and we'd probably get an accurate picture!

While a good list, there are 3 I would have to disagree with. Both Bad Boy and Leave My Kitten Alone are well documented as being part of their pre-1963 sets. It is also known that, between being given the song and recording it, the Beatles did try out How Do You Do It a few times live to gauge how it went over. I note that with Bad Boy you comment "there are claimed performances but no recorded live tracks". If the basis you are going to work from is live recordings and not documented evidence, your list should be much longer since for many of the BBC recordings there are no known live versions, and the same with the Decca audition tracks. The starting point with covers should be that they were more than likely performed back in the Cavern or Hamburg – unless there is strong evidence that they were not.

"All You Need Is Love" have been played live by Paul McCartney as a solo artist together with other music celebrities, just search for it on YouTube.

Thanks for that. I wasn't sure about a few and knew there would be an error. Anyway with Pauls latest tour the list needs updating. If anyone has the desire then feel free to do so.

Edit: I missed the posts by Britpop… and mja. Silly boy.a-hard-days-night-ringo-6apple02

Another thought, while not the finished article, the early When I'm 64 was known to be regularly deployed pre-'63 when the electric went and there was a piano at hand.

Eight Days A Week has been added to Paul's tour, replacing another one he did last tour.  Can't wait!  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Again, you have Bad Boy at 6, and it is a documented song from their pre-1963 sets. The same with When I'm 64, which you have at 65. In fact, When I'm 64 is well documented as being played when the electric went. Both John and George Martin have speculated that Paul possibly resurrected it in '66/'67 because that was when Paul's father reached 64. The lyric may have been tweeked then, but there are lots of people, including John and Paul, who have said it was played at the Cavern.
