This was The Beatles’ second and final concert at the Majestic Ballroom. They had previously appeared at the venue on 28 January 1963.
This was the group’s final appearance in a ballroom run by Top Rank, although they continued to perform in cinemas and theatres operated by the company.
John and I wrote She Loves You together. There was a Bobby Rydell song out at the time and, as often happens, you think of one song when you write another.
We were in a van up in Newcastle. I’d planned an ‘answering song’ where a couple of us would sing ‘She loves you…’ and the other one answers, ‘Yeah, yeah.’ We decided that that was a crummy idea as it was, but at least we then had the idea for a song called She Loves You. So we sat in the hotel bedroom for a few hours and wrote it.
They wrote while facing each other on twin beds in their shared hotel room.
We must have had a few hours before the show so we said, ‘Oh, great! Let’s have a ciggy and write a song!’ So that’s how we began ‘She Loves You’. I remember for some reason thinking of Bobby Rydell; he must have had a hit that we were interested in. I remember thinking of him and sitting on the bed in this hotel somewhere with John in the afternoon daylight.
Many Years From Now, Barry Miles
