    Well the lone outlier I see here is #7 – “I Go To Pieces”, WRITTEN BY Del Shannon. All the other songs listed are the compositions of John Lennon & Paul McCarthy.The songs recorded by them on the list are #’s (giving my fingers a rest here!) 1, 2, 9, & 10.
    Peter & Gordon are responsible for #’s 3, 6, 7, & 8.
    Billy Joe Krammer & The Dakotas recorded songs 4, & 5.
    I guess another outlier is Del Shannon himself because I believe he’s the only Non-Brit in this flurry of song writers & recording artists.
    As an aside (& this probably isn’t news to you) but with the release of the Jackson docu. & all the great box sets everywhere there id highly visible & upticked second & third etc. GUESSING & ARGUMENT re. Who “REALLY WROTE WHAT” in Beatle Land.
    Oh … the replacement song allegedly written by John & Paul …. my entry would be “Don’t Let Me Down”; written by John & Paul. I would like to include “Happy Christmas (War is Over) by John & Yoko, but Yoko was not a Beatle; a whole long & winding story for another time!
    MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY 2022!….. wood

  2. All songs. Written by. Lennon. McCartney. Except. I go to. Pieces. Written by. Del. Shannon. All songs recorded. By. Peter. And. Gordon, billy. J. Kramer Beatles.

  3. I’ll take a stab at this. I think all are Lennon-Maccartney written songs except #7. I’ll replace with Love me do.

    Beatles did 1,2,9,10 and my replacement for 7
    Peter & Gordon did 3,6,7,8
    BJ Kramer did 4 and 5

    Best I can do

    • Well I think Clark pretty much nailed it. Unless you wanted to make a distinction between the songs credited to both John and Paul, and just one or the other.
      Lennon wrote “Tell Me Why” and McCartney wrote “A World Without Love”. I do see how “I Go To Pieces” feels like a Beatles song.

    • Hey Clark
      “Yeah, Yeah, YEAH Clark, you nailed it! And here’s the question for you and Jim Gorman, who wrote “ I go to pieces” ?
