Crying, Waiting, Hoping
Crying, Waiting, Hoping was written by Buddy Holly and performed by the Beatles in their early performance sets. On July 16, 1963 the group performed this number for the BBC radio show Pop! Go the Beatles, and the track eventually was released on the album, Live at the BBC. The Beatles had also performed this song earlier (January 1, 1962) for the (unsuccessful) Decca audition. George sings lead vocals on the song and he reproduces exactly the guitar solo played in the original Buddy Holly recording by Don Arnone. During the Get Back recording sessions in 1969 at the Apple Studios, the Beatles attempted a calmer version of the song, but it was not released.
