Covered shortly afterwards by Liverpool's the Big Three and the Beatles, the song was a standard in the Merseybeat scene.

"Some Other Guy"

from the album Live at the BBC

The song was part of the Beatles' early repertoire, and film footage of The Beatles performing it live is the only known film with synchronized sound showing the group at the Cavern Club. The grainy footage features John Lennon and Paul McCartney singing the song's melody on 22 August 1962. It is also the first film of Ringo Starr as the Beatles drummer, Pete Best having left the band the week before. At the end of the song, a fan in the audience can be heard shouting "We want Pete!" This footage was featured in Anthology, while a BBC live version was released on the album Live at the BBC in 1994.

McCartney stated: "It is a great song ... It really got us started because that's one of the earliest bits of film of The Beatles. It was the song we sang when Granada Television came to the Cavern. It was also a bit of a muso song..."[3] The Beatles play it in the key of D, with a slow A–C–D intro and second interval I–♭VII–I on every tonic (and the equivalent for IV and V).[jargon explanation needed] The "muso song" reference may relate to it being early example of a rock & roll song topped and tailed by a ♭VII–I cadence.[jargon explanation needed][4]

Pete Best released a cover on his 1965 album, Best of The Beatles. Best's version and The Beatles' version are similar in sound and structure.[5]

In the three-part TV series Cilla featuring Sheridan Smith playing Cilla Black, Smith sings the song as "Some Other Girl", but otherwise her lyrics are the Barrett originals (save for "Some other girl, now, has just thrown water on my hand"). Smith also starts singing the line "Some other girl, now, is sipping up the honey like a yellow dog", but the scene is cut before the line is completed. She sings the line, "is breaking the padlock off my pad" three times.
