Info about “You Like Me Too Much”

“You Like Me Too Much” is George Harrison’s second composition for the Help! album. The song was recorded on 17 February 1965 for inclusion in the film of the same name, although it was later relegated to the second, non-soundtrack, half.. It was first released on the Help! album in the UK and on Beatles VI in the U.S., both in 1965.

Presumably written about his relationship with Pattie Boyd, ‘You Like Me Too Much’ was Harrison’s third song to be recorded by The Beatles, after ‘Don’t Bother Me’ and ‘I Need You’.

There is an introduction using piano and electric piano, with Paul McCartney and George Martin playing two different piano parts on separate ends of the same Steinway grand piano. The Steinway appears only in the song’s intro and was overdubbed separately, as was McCartney’s bass. The electric piano is a Hohner Pianet, and you can hear the instrument’s tremolo being switched off after the intro.
