Some Other Guy is a well-known, traditional rock and roll song by Richard Bennet (with Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller) and performed by him on a 1962 single.
The Beatles performed the song during 1962. In fact, their version of Some Other GuyI (together with Kansas City/Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey!) is the only Cavern Club performance that has survived on film. It was made on August 22, 1962 by a Manchester TV crew . Ringo had just joined the band. On this recording you can hear someone shouting "We want Pete [Best]" near the end.
The group also recorded the song three times for the BBC: two of them being on the same day in different places.
The first recording was made on January 22, 1963 at the BBC Playhouse Theatre for the radio program The Saturday Club, which aired on January 26.
Later that same day they recorded the song again at the BBC Paris Studio.
The third version, made on June 19, 1963 for Easy Beat¸ was heard on June 23, 1963 and released over thirty years later on Live at the BBC (1994).
John Lennon said in a 1968 interview that Some Other Guy was for him the recording that most satisfied him.
