The Beatles: Don't Let Me Down

Although credited to Lennon and McCartney, today’s Friday Flipside was a John Lennon composition that was written as a love song to Yoko Ono. Credited on the single to The Beatles with Billy Preston, “Don’t Let Me Down” was the “B” side to “Get Back” – another tune that featured Billy Preston. Preston is playing an electric piano on this cut.

Both songs were recorded on January 28, 1969 with “Get Back” charting at #1 and “Don’t Let Me Down,” which garnered significant airplay, peaked at 35. Two days after recording the studio version, the band re-recorded the on their roof top session that appeared in the film “Let it Be.”
