I'll Keep You Satisfied
I'll Keep You Satisfied was written by Paul McCartney with some input from John Lennon, but it was never performed by the Beatles.
Instead, the song was passed to Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas. This Liverpool pop-singing group was also managed by Brian Epstein, and was also signed to a recording contract with Parlophone records with George Martin as producer.
In all, the Lennon-McCartney team provided six songs to Kramer in the first couple of years of their history with Martin. Kramer recorded I'll Keep You Satisfied on October 14, 1963 (with John Lennon present in the studio), and the single came out on November 1, 1963 with I Know on the b-side.
At the time, the song title was considered a bit audacious, but in spite of that - or perhaps because of that - it spent 13 weeks in the UK charts (rising as high as number 4). In 1964 it went to number 30 in the US.
