The Beatles - I Should Have Known Better
Written in 1964, the song, according to John Lennon “doesn’t mean a damn thing.” It is one of the last Beatles’ song to feature the harmonica. It is believed that Bob Dylan’s album, The Freewhelin’, was an inspiration to Lennon’s songwriting for this particular song.
The song was featured on the Beatles’ first feature film, A Hard Day’s Night, during the train scene where the Beatles were playing cards. The train scene was filmed in a stationary van at Twickenham Film Studios in London. The motion of the train was imitated by the film crew rocking the van back and forth.
