Klasické rokenrolové číslo Gene Vincenta, který ho napsal v nemocnici po své nehodě. Píseň nahrál v roce 1955 v Nashville a obsadil s ní 7. místo americké hitparády. John Lennon ji zpíval už 6. července 1957 s Quarry Men, kdy se seznámil s Paulem McCartneyem.

Well, be bop a lula, she’s my baby
be bop a lula, I don’t mean maybe
be bop a lula, she’s my baby
be bop a lula, I don’t mean maybe
Be bop a lula, she’s my baby love, my baby love, my baby love.

Well, she’s the girl in the red blue jeans
she’s the queen of all the teens
she’s the woman that I know
she’s the one that loves me so.

Say, be bop a lula, she’s my baby
be bop a lula, I don’t mean maybe
Be bop a lula, she’s my baby love, my baby love, my baby.

Let’s rock!

Well, she’s the woman that’s got that beat
she’s the woman with the flying feet
she’s the woman that walks around the store
she’s the one who wants me more, more, more.

Well, be bop a lula ...

She’s sure my baby love.

Stand by me

Ve Spojených státech se umístila na 20. místě hitparády, v Británii na 27. příčce. Při britské reedici 17. dubna 1981 se v hitparádě už neobjevila.

When the night has come and the land is dark
and the moon is the only light we'll see
no I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
just as long as you stand, stand by me.

So darling, darling stand by me
oh stand by me, oh stand stand by me, stand by me.

If the sea that we look upon should tumble and fall
or the mountain should crumble in the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry, no I won't shed a tear
just as long as you stand, stand by me.

So darling, darling stand by me
oh stand by me, oh stand stand by me, stand by me.

Well, it's saturday night and i just got paid
fool about my money, don't try to save
my heart says, "go go! have a time!"
'cause it's saturday night and, baby, I feel fine.

Gonna rip it up
gonna rock it up
gonna shake it up
gonna ball it up
gonna rock it up
and ball the night.

I got me a date and I won't be late
picked her up in my eighty-eight
shag on down to the union hall
when the joint starts jumpin', I'll have a ball.

Gonna rip it up ...

Well, ready, set, go man, go
I got a girl that I love so.

And I'm ready
ready, ready, Ted
I'm ready
ready, ready, Ted
I'm ready, ready, Ted to rock and roll.

Goin' to the corner, pick up my sweetie pie
she's a rock and roll baby, she's the apple of my eye.

I'm ready ...

I bought a brand new airmobile
it was a custom made, it was a flightning deal
with a powerful motor and a hide away wing
push in on the button, you will hear her sing.

Now, you can't catch me
baby, you can't catch me
'cause if you get too close
you know I'm goin' like cool breeze
hey hey
well, you walk
you walk!

New Jersey turnpike in the wee wee hours
I was rollin' slowly 'cause of drizzle showers
here come a flat-top, he was movin' up with me
then come waving goodbye in a little, old souped up jitney
I put my foot in the tank, I began to roll
moanin' siren, 'twas the state patrol
I let out my wings, then I blew my horn
bye-bye, New Jersey, I become airborn.

Now, you can't catch me ...

I bought a brand new airmobile ...

Now, you can't catch me ...

Flying with my baby last saturday night
wasn't a grey cloud floatin' in sight
big, full moon, shinin' up above
cuddle up, honey, be my love.

Sweetest little thing that I ever seen
I'm gonna name you maybellene
flying on the beam, set on flight control
radio tuned to rock and roll
two, three hours passed us by
altitude dropped into five-o-five
fuel consumption, way too fast
let's get on home before we run out of gas.

Now, you can't catch me ...

Git it on!

Píseň hrávala Johnovi na banjo jeho matka Julia. Byl to první rokenrol, který se John naučil hrát, a hrál ho také se skupinou Quarry Men. Původně ho v roce 1957 vydal Fats Domino a v hitparádě se umístil na 23. místě, v roce 1956 ho zahrál také ve filmu Shake rattle & rock. Předtím s ním na 1. místě bodoval Pat Boone v roce 1955. V roce 1963 se také stal hitem skupiny Four Seasons, kteří s ním vystoupili na 38. příčku britské hitparády.

You made me cry when you said goodbye
ain't that a shame
my tears fell like rain
ain't that a shame
you're the one to blame.

You broke my heart when you said we're part
ain't that a shame
my tears fell like rain
ain't that a shame
you're the one to blame.

Boogie, babe!

Ain't that a shame
look out!

Farewell, goodbye, although I'll cry
ain't that a shame
my tears fell like rain
ain't that a shame
you're the one to blame.

Boggie, babe!

Ain't that a shame?

You made me cry when you said goodbye
ain't that a shame
my tears fell like rain
ain't that a shame
you're the one to blame.

Hit Bobbyho Freemana z roku 1958. Zpívalo ho také mnoho dalších interpretů, např. Barbra Streisand, Beach Boys a Cliff Richard.

Well, do you wanna dance, hold my hand

Well, do you wanna dance under the moonlight
hug and kiss all through the night, now
baby, do you wanna dance, dance, dance?

Well, do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance
do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance

They're really rockin' in Boston
in Pittsburgh, p.a.
deep in the heart of Texas
on down to Frisco bay
all over St. Louis
and down in New Orleans
all the cats wanna dance with
sweet, little sixteen.

Sweet, sweet, sweet, little sixteen
she's got the grown up blues
tight dresses and lipstick
she's sportin' high heel boots
oh, but tomorrow morning
you gotta have to change her trend
become sweet sixteen-ah
and back in class again.

Oh, mummy, mummy
please, please may I go
you know it's such a sight to see them
some other steal the show
oh, daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy
you know I beg of you
scream it to mama
it's all right with you.

Because they're rockin' in New York
in Philadelphia, p.a.
deep in the heart of Texas
down at the "rainbow", L.A.
all over St. Louis
and down in New Orleans
all them mothers wanted to
be sweet, little sixteen.

Sweet, sweet, sweet, sixteen
she's so delicate
she's just gotta have it
about half, half a mountain
that's framed back
do it! do it!

I won't be your fool no more.

Oh, big conniver, nothin' but a jiver

Oh, malinda, she's a solid sender

Píseň Buddy Hollyho hrával John Lennon už v roce 1957 s Quarry Men, když poprvé vyšla počátkem července. Píseň se původně jmenovala Cindy Lou, ale nakonec byla přejmenována podle přítelkyně Jerryho Allisona, bubeníka Crickets, Peggy Sue Gerronové. Singl se umístil na 3. příčce hitparády Billboardu.

If you knew Peggy Sue
then you know why i feel blue without Peggy
my Peggy Sue
oh, well, I love you, gal
yes, I love you, Peggy Sue.

Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue
pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty Peggy Sue
oh ho, Peggy
my Peggy Sue
oh, well, I love you, girl
and I need you, Peggy Sue.

I love you, Peggy Sue
with that love so rare and true
oh ho, Peggy
my Peggy Sue
oh, yes, I love you, girl
and I want you, Peggy Sue.

Look out!

Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue
oh, how my heart yearns for you
oh ho, Peggy
my Peggy Sue
oh, well, I love you, girl
and I want you, Peggy Sue.

Oh, yes, I love you, girl
and I want you, Peggy Sue.

If you ever change your mind
about leaving, leaving me behind
oh, you'd better bring it to me
bring your sweet lovin'
bring it on home to me.

You know I laughed
laughed when you left
but now I know, I've only hurt myself
oh, you'd better bring it to me
bring your sweet lovin'
bring it on home to me.

Oh, you'd better bring it to me
bring your sweet lovin'
bring it on home to me.

You know I'll always be your slave
until I'm dead and buried in my grave
oh, you'd better bring it to me
bring your sweet lovin'
bring it on home to me.

Send me some lovin'
send it I pray
how can I love you
when you're so far away?

Send me your picture
send it, my dear
so I can hold it
and pretend you are here.

Send me your kisses
I can feel your touch
I need you, I need you so badly
don't you know I miss you so much?

My days are so lonely
my nights are so blue
I'm here and I'm lonely
just waitin' for you.

I got a girl named Bony Moronie
she's as skinny as a stick of macoroni
got to see her rock and roll with her blue jeans on
she's not very fat, just skin and bone.

Well, now I love her and she loves me
oh, how happy now we're gonna be
making love underneath the apple tree, oh!

Well, I told her mama and her papa, too
just exactly what I'm gonna do
we're gonna get married on a night in june
rock and roll by the light of the silvery moon.

Well, now I love her ...

Well, she's my one and only, she's my hearts desire
she's a real upsetter, she's a real live wire
ev'rybody's watching when my baby walks by
she's so good looking, really catches the eye.

Well, now I love her ...

Yeh, yeh, underneath the apple!
Making love, yeh!

Lloyd Price s touto písní bodoval v dubnu 1957.

"Ah, remember this
why, I must have been thirteen when this came out
or was it fourteen
or was it twenty-two
I could have been twelve actually."

Just because you left and said goodbye
do you think that I will sit and cry
even if my heart should tell me so
darling, I would rather let you go.

Just because I want someone who's kind
with a heart as good and pure as mine
but maybe I am asking for too much
darling, please don't ever break my heart.

I know you think you're smart
just runnin' around breaking lovers hearts.

Just because you left ...

"This is doctor Winston o'boggie saying goodnight
from record plant east, New York
we hope you had a swell time
ev'rybody here says "hi"
goodbye."

Just because you left ...

Goodbye!
So long!
Been a long year!
