One 45 at 1:45 – “Drive My Car” The Beatles

Facebook.com/rubbersoul

Side 1, track 1 of the Beatles’ Rubber Soul album, you will find this gem.  What a great song.  It was mostly written by Paul, but there are some lyrical contribution by John. 

The song’s male narrator is told by a woman that she is going to be a famous movie star, and she offers him the opportunity to be her chauffeur, adding “and maybe I’ll love you.”

 When he objects that his “prospects are good”, she retorts that “working for peanuts is all very fine/but I can show you a better time.” When he agrees to her proposal, she admits that she does not have a car, “but [she's] found a driver and that’s a start.” 

According to McCartney, “‘Drive my car’ was an old blues euphemism for sex”.

It was recorded on Oct 13, 1965.

McCartney played the lead guitar solo, although Harrison plays the guitar which doubles the bass throughout the song.  Harrison claimed to have also played the 6-string bass part.

I’ll dust off another one for you tomorrow.  Thanks for listening!
