"Glad All Over"

"Glad All Over" is a song written by Aaron Schroeder, Tepper, and Bennett recorded by rockabilly artist Carl Perkins at Sun Records during the 1950s. It was released as a single on January 6, 1958 (b/w "Lend Me Your Comb") and a performance of the song was featured on the 1957 film Jamboree, where Perkins and his band perform the song in a recording studio; the scene is somewhat akin to Elvis Presley's studio performance in Jailhouse Rock along with Scotty Moore and Bill Black.

The Beatles recorded "Glad All Over" on two occasions in 1963 for BBC radio sessions, with George Harrison on lead vocals. The first of these, recorded on 16 July 1963, was released in 1994 on the Live at the BBC collection.
