“I Wanna Be Your Man” was written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon and released as the 11th track on the UK album With The Beatles on 22 November, 1963. Lead vocals for the song are performed by Ringo Starr.

The song was first recorded by The Rolling Stones, who released it as a single a couple of weeks prior to the release of With the Beatles. The song is driven by a heavily tremoloed, open E-chord on a guitar played through a Vox AC30 amplifier. Doubletracking is used for the lead vocals, and the hammond organ backing is performed by producer George Martin.
