In Hamburg, Germany, the Beatles began a marathon stint at the new Star Club, performing three to four hours per night for 48 days, with only one day off, for a total of 172 hours of performances. During their stay they will record two tracks with Tony Sheridan, “Sweet Georgia Brown” and “Swanee River”, but whether these were the versions of Sheridan’s songs that were eventually released is uncertain.
“Surfin’ USA” by the Beach Boys was released in the US, where it will become the group’s second Billboard chart-maker, reaching #3. The song was a note-for-note copy of Chuck Berry‘s “Sweet Little Sixteen” with new lyrics. After Berry sued, he was granted royalties and all further issues of the song gave him writing credit.

At EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London, the Beatles began recording the Paul McCartney composition “Paperback Writer,” which they completed the following day. McCartney is said to have written it after his aunt asked if he could come up with a song that wasn’t about love. The lyrics are in the form of a letter from an aspiring author addressed to a publisher. The track is also notable because of its boosted bass guitar, which occurred partly in response to John Lennon demanding to know why the bass on a Wilson Pickett record far exceeded the bass on any Beatles record.
