I always wondered how the Beatles came to record a showtune, like ''Till There Was You'' from Meredith Willson's ''The Music Man.''

Turns out that Paul McCartney first heard Peggy Lee's recording and didn't even realize it was from a Broadway musical back then.

Reportedly, ''Till There Was You'' proved important to the Beatles' career; their recording of it is what got them an audition with EMI.
