What the Beatles said about “Dizzy Miss Lizzie”
Paul McCartney has stated that he believes this song to be one of the Beatles best recordings. It features loud, rhythmic instrumentation, and John Lennon giving the vocal his all. The song also appeared in a live solo version by Lennon on the Plastic Ono Band’s Live Peace in Toronto 1969.
The title is playfully misleading. The actual lyric is, "You make me dizzy, Miss Lizzy".
The song was originally thought about by band manager Brian Epstein, and was later introduced to Ringo Starr, the band’s drummer. He made sure that the band recorded it after loving its upbeat rhythm and interesting lyrics.
