- Please Please Me (Lennon / McCartney)
- Ask Me Why (Lennon / McCartney)
- In October 1962, the Beatles released their first single in the UK, “Love Me Do”, credited to “Lennon–McCartney”. However, on their next three releases the following year (the single “Please Please Me”, the Please Please Me LP, and the single “From Me to You”), the credit was given as “McCartney–Lennon”. With the “She Loves You” single, released in August 1963, the credit reverted to “Lennon–McCartney”, and all subsequent official Beatles singles and albums list “Lennon–McCartney” as the author of songs written by the two.
