|COMMENTS||"Please Mr. Postman" is a song
written by Georgia Dobbins, William Garrett, Freddie Gorman,
Brian Holland and Robert Bateman. It is the debut single by
the Marvelettes for the Tamla (Motown) label, notable as the
first Motown song to reach the number-one position on the
Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart. The single achieved
this position in late 1961; it hit number one on the R&B
chart as well.
The English rock band the Beatles displayed an early interest in the music of girl groups, covering songs by groups like the Shirelles, the Cookies and the Donays. They added "Please Mr. Postman" to their live repertoire in December 1961, their third Tamla song after the Miracles' "Who's Lovin' You" and Barrett Strong's "Money (That's What I Want)".
In 1963, Beatles manager Brian Epstein approached Gordy for the rights to record several Motown songs, including "Please Mr. Postman", "You've Really Got a Hold on Me" and "Money (That's What I Want)".
On 30 July 1963, the band recorded the song for their second UK album, With the Beatles. (from Wikipedia)
