You Won't See Me

The Beatles' "You Won't See Me" was released on some singles in India, the Philippines, and the West Indies. The A-side was "Michelle."  



"You Won't See Me" is a track on the Beatles' "Rubber Soul" album. This is one of those songs you might hear once on the classic rock station and go, wow, that's great, why haven't I heard that before. Where's it from?" Many people may remember it from an Anne Murray 1974 cover which went to No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart - making "You Won't See Me" yet another Beatles Top Ten composition.

According to Paul McCartney, he wrote "You Won't See Me" while having difficulties with Jane Asher. Apparently, Asher was upset about something and refused to take his calls. The Beatles had to submit their final tracks on 11 November 1965 but were short several tracks. The Beatles, needing something fast, punched out "You Won't See Me" in two takes. The Beatles to this point had kept their songs very short and radio-friendly, but they allowed "You Won't See Me" to extend out to 3:22, their longest song to date. Beatles roadie Mal Evans played a single note on the Hammond Organ and gets credit as a contributor.

Paul is in full voice here, with the others providing that harmony for which they were so famous in the beginning. Gems like this are hidden throughout the catalog, songs which would have made the career of any other band simply forgotten because of all the other hits. Paul did not return to "You Won't See Me" until his 2004 Back in the World Tour.
