The singer asks his lover how to make him fall in love with the hair manage to. If he knows, he can lash out at her the same trick.
The song was first offered to singer Adam Faith, but who saw nothing in George Martin., the future producer of The Beatles, thought it was a nice number, and tried to persuade The Beatles to record it. The group, who was then outside Liverpool still hardly was known, saw little in. The song seemed too much like the standard repertoire that was usual at that time. The Beatles wanted to come up with something new. On 4 september 1962 they took the number still on in the Abbey Road Studios in London, together with their own number Love Me Do. It was the first recording session where Ringo Starr as drummer.
The occupation of the song was:
- John Lennon, vocals, rhythmguitar
- Paul McCartney– vocals, bass guitar
- George Harrison, backing vocals, lead guitar
- Ringo Starr, drums
George Martin, who was convinced of the hitpotentie of the song, were looking for a new candidate for How Do You Do It? That was Gerry Marsden of Gerry & the pacemakers, also a group from Liverpool and like The Beatles managed by Brian Epstein. On January 22, 1963 the group put the number on the plate and followed it closely the example of The Beatles. Martin had their that recording. The plate, the first of Marsden and his group, came on the market in March 1963 and took out the first place in the UK Singles Chart. The successor of this song, I Like It, which was released in May 1963, was also written by Mitch Murray and reached the first place.
