|"I Call Your Name" is a song
recorded by the English rock band the Beatles and credited
to Lennon–McCartney. It was written primarily by John
Lennon, with assistance from Paul McCartney. It was released
in the US on The Beatles' Second Album on 10 April 1964 and
in the UK on the Long Tall Sally EP on 19 June 1964.
Lennon wrote the song prior to the formation of the Beatles.
In 1963, he gave it to Billy J. Kramer of The Dakotas,
another Liverpool band who were signed to Parlophone by
George Martin. Kramer released it as the B-side of the
single "Bad to Me", another Lennon–McCartney composition.
