#24: Little Child

Written by: John Lennon & Paul McCartney
Released: November 22nd, 1963
Appears on: with the beatles
Lead vocal: John

While there's not much to "Little Child" aside from John's really awesome vocal, it is interesting technically. On Please Please Me, John was never heard singing and playing the harmonica...at the same time. "Little Child" is easily one of the first examples of The Beatles overdubbing, at least in such an obvious way (Please Please Me does include the trick harmony on "A Taste Of Honey", but the work on "Little Child" is much more extensive).
Nevertheless, "Little Child" is obviously a party track...and a fantastic one at that.
