“I Saw Her Standing There”
Under the working title "Seventeen," the song that would eventually become "I Saw Her Standing There" was a staple of Beatles concerts circa 1962, when they would jam it out for minutes on end. The song's muse was Paul McCartney's lady interest, Iris Caldwell, who was indeed just 17 when they met in 1961. McCartney admits that the bass line was lifted from "I'm Talking About You" by Chuck Berry, which the Beatles often covered. "I played the exact same notes as he did," says McCartney, "and it fitted our number perfectly."
