Letter to the Beatles Regarding "Yellow Submarine"

Dear Beatles,

Could you please tell me if you recorded "Yellow Submarine" to see if it would sell because YOU were singing it? Let's face it, it sounds like the Sally Bash Army on a Saturday afternoon. I just don't believe you take this recording seriously because you're usually such perfectionists. Please, please, we want our Beatle music, not a third-rate, amateur tin pot band.

For pity's sake don't give the newspaper's a real chance to tear you to pieces.

Best Wishes,

Aldershot, Hants.

John replies:--
What do you mean "the Sally Bash Army on a Saturday afternoon"? I'll have you know that was our piece-de-resistance written specially for Ringo--we think it's a gas. As for saying we don't take our music seriously . . . . . . . . . . . . . well. The reason we released it as a single with "Eleanor Rigby", was apart from liking them both, we didn't want anyone else to cover them.
