CRAP !!
"Till There Was You" was written by Meredith Willson for "The Music Man" in
1957. Anita Bryant released a version in 1959 that made it to Number 30 on
the US Billboard charts. The Beatles' version was on their UK album "With
the Beatles" in 1963 and "Meet the Beatles" in the US. Paul McCartney had
heard the 1961 Peggy Lee recording and included the song in their repertoire
when they performed in Hamburg. It was one of the tunes performed by the
group during their Decca Records audition. When the Beatles performed on
"The Ed Sullivan Show" in 1964 it was the second of the six songs they
showcased.

Note; Both versions of "Till There Was You" are posted in the "Listening to" thread...
