The Beatles - “Don’t Bother Me” - With The Beatles“Don’t Bother Me. The first song that I wrote - as an excercise to see if I could write a song. I wrote it in a hotel in Bournemouth, England, where we were playing a summer season in 1963 - I was sick in bed - maybe that’s why it turned out to be Don’t Bother Me.
I don’t think it’s a particularly good song, it mightn’t even be a song at all but at least it showed me at all I needed to do was keep on writing and then maybe eventually I would write something good. I still feel now ‘I wish I could write something good.’ It’s relativity. It did, however, provide me with an occupation.” - George Harrison, I Me Mine
