Rare Beatles Songs: I Fancy Me Chances

A very simple song, interesting in how late, relatively speaking, it appears in the Beatles early catalog (1962) -- not entirely surprising, however, given that their single of choice at the time was "Love Me Do." Recalled by Cavern Club dwellers as possessing a basic premise ("when I'm at the dances, I fancy me chances with you"), the song exists in Beatles recorded history only at the tail end of their career, through a brief run-through during the Get Back sessions during a jam on "Maggie Mae," where, typically, John and Paul forget most of the words.

an early recording may exist but never has been considered for release like all those demos the beatles recorded and gave away to other singers.
