Words of Love
From Beatles Wiki - Interviews, Music, Beatles Quotes
|| Finally, John and Paul harmonised on a version of Buddy Holly's 'Words Of Love', the first and only time the Beatles &#$151; Holly lovers to the man performed one of his songs on record, although they had played a number of them on stage before 1963. This was recorded in three takes, only two of which were complete. Take three with overdubs added onto take two was the 'best'.
—Mark Lewisohn, The Beatles Recording Sessions, p.50, 1988
|| There was still one more song to be recorded a cover of Buddy Holly's "Words Of Love," another favorite of mine. They were clearly flagging by the time they got around to it, yet John, Paul, and George sang beautiful three-part harmony, gathered around a single mic. Their vocals really imbued the track with warmth and love. It was a fitting tribute to one of the group's musical idols and the perfect way to end the evening, just short of midnight.
—Geoff Emerick, EMI Recording Engineer, Here, There and Everywhere, p.97, 2006
