John Lennon and Paul McCartney were writing songs at such a frenetic pace during the early stages of The Beatles’ career that they couldn’t possibly play all of them. Even though they were releasing around two albums a year, plus assorted singles that didn’t even appear on the records, Lennon and McCartney still had excess material that they would give away.

Some of those songs wound up being hits for other artists. McCartney was the songwriter for some of Peter and Gordon’s initial hits, including the number one song ‘A World Without Love’, which was originally rejected for inclusion in The Beatles catalogue. The band also wrote songs for Billy J. Kramer, another artist that was managed by Brian Epstein, who took over a ballad entitled ‘I’ll Be On My Way’.

“That’s Paul, through and through,” Lennon told David Sheff in 1980. “Doesn’t it sound like him? Tra la la la la [laughs]. Yeah, that’s Paul on the voids of driving through the country.” McCartney was known to find inspiration through driving, which was how he eventually created songs like ‘The Back Seat of My Car’ and ‘Junk’.
