Please Mister Postman
The Beatles
Written by Robert Bateman, Georgia Dobbins, William Garrett, Freddie
Gorman and Brian Holland; released on the album "With The Beatles".

"Please Mister Postman" was a hit (actually the only hit song) by the
American girl group the Marvelettes in 1961. It was their first single,
and the first Motown song to reach the number one position on the
Billboard pop singles chart. The original is also notable for featuring
Marvin Gaye on drums.
The Beatles made a cover version for their second album two years later;
the song was regularly performed live, but dropped from their set by the
time it was recorded for "With The Beatles" album. John is singing the
lead, while Paul and George provide backing vocals. The arrangement is
typical for their early recordings, only the lack of a lead guitar part
is notable.
The song is based on the A-F#m-D-E chord progression (D-Bm-G-A in the
original), very typical to R&B songs in the fifties and the early sixties.
Paul's bassline is more or less faithful to the original by James Jamerson,
and Ringo's drumming does not differ much from the original either, only
that he is hitting the hi-hat cymbal open, making the sizzling sound which
is typical to their early songs.
