From a Window
From a Window was written by Paul and attributed to Lennon-McCartney early in 1964 when they were trying to write lots of new material for albums, under a schedule that kept getting tighter and tighter. They were not very enthusiastic about how this song came out, so they offered it to Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas instead of slating it for a Beatles single or album.
This was the sixth and last such song that the Lennon-McCartney team composed for Billy J. Kramer to sing. Kramer recorded From a Window at Abbey Road on May 29, 1964 with Lennon and McCartney in attendance and George Martin as producer.
McCartney's voice can actually be heard harmonizing on the last bit of the lyrics. As performed by Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, From a Window reached number 10 in the UK and 23 in the US.
An album released in 1979, The Songs Lennon and McCartney Gave Away, includes Kramer's track. Graham Parker covers the song in his 2003 album called From a Window: Lost Songs of Lennon & McCartney.
