The Songs Lennon and McCartney Gave Away was a conceptual compilation album containing the original artist recordings of songs composed by John Lennon and Paul McCartney in the 1960s that they had elected not to release as Beatles songs. The album was released in the UK in 1979. With the exception of "I'm the Greatest", a Ringo Starr album track written for him by John Lennon in 1973, all songs were recorded and released as singles during the active Beatles years in the 1960s.

That’ll be £50 please. McCartney must have been sniffing around their sisters too, because they get She’s Leaving Home. Not sure what Bernie Cribbins did to get When I’m 64 off of Paul, and perhaps it’s best that we never know. Kenny Lynch fails to inject Misery with anything other than a vague sense of disappointment.

Lennon and McCartney started writing songs together in the late 1950s and by 1963 were prolific composers who wrote songs for the Beatles and also for other artists. Lennon–McCartney songs that the Beatles deemed unsuitable for the group at the outset and did not even attempt to record themselves. Songs that had been intentionally written for other artists. In the earliest days of their songwriting partnership, Lennon and McCartney expressed a desire to emulate the success of composing duos such as Goffin & King and Leiber & Stoller in having their compositions recorded by other artists, so this was an aspect of the songwriting craft that they were interested in pursuing.
