Don't Ever Change is a composition by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, a well-known pop music writing team. It is not one of their most famous compositions. The song was written for Buddy Holly's backup group, The Crickets, who continued recording even after Buddy Holly's death in 1959. In the UK the Crickets version became a hit (1962), but did not make the US charts.
The Beatles adopted the song in their repertoire, and in August of 1964 recorded it for the BBC presentation, Pop! Go the Beatles! The song is on the album Live at the BBC (1994). It is one of the very few songs in which George and Paul sing a harmonized duet. The show was broadcast on August 27, 1963.
