ABOUT THE SONG

 

One of the major misnomers about The Beatles is that Paul was the nice one and John was the mean one.

 

No one gets to be a billionaire by playing nice all the time and Paul could be as ruthless as a Rockefeller. 

 

Another Girl is an unconscious example of his ruthlessness.

 

Have you ever dumped anyone like this?

 

You’re makin’ me say that I’ve got..nobody but you.

And as from today, well, I’ve got, somebody that’s new.

I ain’t no fool and I don’t take what I don’t want.

For I have got, another girl.

 

And he does not stop there. To totally humiliate his soon to be ex he adds – 

 

She’s sweeter than all the girls and I’ve met quite a few.

Nobody in all the world can do what she can do.

And so I’m telling you, this time you’d better stop,

For I have got, another girl.

 

Now I’m not saying Paul isn’t a lovely bloke but he does have a tough side.

 

The scene in Help! is one of the great inspirations for “The Monkeys” . Introduced by the great Victor Spinetti sees Paul playing a girl as though she was a bass guitar. It is a particularly bonkers section of the movie that even has Ringo playing guitar.

 

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

Andrew Lubman was born on the day that John Lennon took delivery of his psychedelic Rolls Royce. A Beatle fan from day one (his day one, not theirs), Andrew’s interest in their music intensified around the same time he started teaching himself piano and guitar (age 12).

 

In addition to having worked as a sound designer for a major synthesizer manufacturer, Andrew has composed music for broadcast and broadband. Some of his original songs can be heard on his web site (www.AndrewLubman.com), and are available on iTunes.

 

Lately, he has been putting many hours (and loving every second of it) into crafting ridiculously detail-oriented re-creations of classic Beatles songs with videos to go with them. His work can be seen on YouTube under the name AllYouNeedIsLub.
