Song facts

From the liner notes of Wildcat!:

“Some Days” is just a guess at the song title for this acoustic guitar demo that is possibly an early McCartney composition. Unlike some of the relatively uninspired instrumental ramblings elsewhere on this collection, the Beatles here are a more confident rock’n’roll group. While the song is somewhat simple, it is still basically very catchy and displays McCartney’s innate sense of melodic lines.

From Early Beatles Songs:

This song turns up on the 1960 tapes, but apparently nowhere else. A not unattractive little rock number, it is clearly McCartney’s work, and he takes lead vocals. The song (all 1:30 of it) has been worked out and structured with a guitar solo, and the lyric is complete (if simplistic). If McCartney had wanted to, he could have developed it into a decent song. (The title, incidentally, is presumed from the words.)
