Song facts

From Wikipedia:

“I’ll Keep You Satisfied” is a song written by John Lennon. It was released as a single by Billy J. Kramer with the Dakotas on 1 November 1963. It reached number 4 and spent 13 weeks in the UK charts, kept off the top spot by the Beatles’ “She Loves You” (another Lennon–McCartney composition) and “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. The song hit #30 in the 1964 US charts.


The song was recorded on 14 October 1963 at Abbey Road Studios. Lennon was present at the recording.

Paul wrote that for Billy J Kramer when he was getting fed up with me writing all the Billy J. Kramer hits.
