50 years to the date! “Some other Guy” The song is especially popular in Beatles lore, being featured in the only known existing film with synchronized sound showing the Beatles performing live at the famous Cavern Club. The crude, grainy footage features John Lennon and Paul McCartney singing the song’s melody in unison on Wednesday August 22, 1962. It is also the first film of Ringo Starr as the Beatles drummer, Pete Best having been discharged the week before. At the end of the song you can hear someone in the audience screaming “We want Pete!” McCartney stated: “Some Other Guy” is a great song…It really got us started because that’s one of the earliest bits of film of The Beatles. It was the song we sang when Granada Television came to the Cavern. John Lennon pays homage to this song by lifting the two-chord intro for the intro to his ‘Instant Karma’ single.
