23 JUNE 1966
I can't link the single version here, but this clip is the first take for the song and highlights the riff sounding quite Hendrix-like. Now getting quite experimental with their sounds, Lennon wanted the bass sound pushed to the front of the recording. The lyrics were also different from McCartney's usual fare as he made an effort to write a song that was not about love.
