Default Their Feminine Parts

1. Speaking of the Beatles records that they officially released between '62 and '70, how many of the songs on those records are fully or mainly composed by a female person?

2. Is there room for speculation in this matter?

1. Ha Ha!

I don't know about those Motown covers they did. Maybe there was some female person credited as well. And then there is of course the Yoko's ideas.

2. You can always speculate.

I don't know if this is a completely false answer but it's certainly not the most exact one.

I can come up with three possibilities. All were credited to both men and women, but the women probably had an equal if not greater part of the writing:

Chains - Carole King co-wrote
Please Mr. Postman - Georgia Dobbins reworked a blues song and gets top writing credit
Money (That's What I Want) - Janie Bradford co-wrote

1. Answer is: One. Chains is mainly if not completely composed by Carole King. (she must have had it hard: coffin-chains)

2. There's plenty of room for speculation as Maggie May the song was composed by the most prolific composer of all time, Mr. Trad. But it could've been Mrs. Trad as well. And at least I don't know how much Yoko did for Revolution 9.
