Lennon probably got a perverse kick out of Bing's performance. He loathed the song and stormed out of the recording session. He came back in, banged out a few notes on a piano, and shouted, "There's your goddam opening!" And indeed it became the opening.
Lennon first conceived "Please Please Me" as a bluesy, slow tempo song. Lennon recalled: "I remember the day I wrote it, I heard Roy Orbison doing 'Only the Lonely', or something. And I was also always intrigued by the words to a Bing Crosby song that went, 'Please lend a little ear to my pleas'. The double use of the word 'please'. So it was a combination of Roy Orbison and Bing Crosby"
Life is never interesting enough, somehow... You people who come to the movies know that.
These are really fun Bing version songs of The Beatles and are just wonderful here too .
I can only imagine how fascinating this " Jude song " with Bing would have sounded had it been sung along with Danny Kaye instead of Gary Crosby although I did enjoy the " Crosby & Crosby sound " just the same .
Thanks so much teleadm for sharing these with us here too .

"Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' — she always called me Elwood — 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." — James Stewart as Elwood P. Dowd
