About “Anna (Go To Him)”

Arthur Alexander wrote this, making it one of the world’s great trivia questions: Alexander is the only person to write songs that were recorded by Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles.

This was distributed to US disc jockeys in 1963 on a single with “Ask Me Why.” The promotional disc is a rare collectors item.
John Lennon loved this song, which is why The Beatles recorded it.

He sang lead, and changed the lyric to “go WITH him”.
