This is a nice way to start your Friday with a smile … hopefully, 14 of them.
Back in the 1960s, it was a common practice for record labels to slap an often insignificant song on the flip side of a single they thought would do well in the charts. After all, it was the A-Side people were going to focus on so it didn’t make sense to waste a strong recording for the B-Side.
The Beatles changed all of that.
Their B-Sides were consistently outstanding; some of them were the equal of – if not better than – the A-Side. Today, that’s the focus of this medley. I’m not listing each song’s title but I am listing the names of the A-Side they were combined with. Hopefully that will pique your curiosity. 😉
By the way, I did not include Come Together/Something or Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever since both singles have long been considered to be Double A-Sides.
