This is the B-side of the Ticket to Ride single by the Beatles. Most of the vocals are sung in a somewhat strained voice by John, and the song - which clocks in at two minutes and forty-two seconds - also features three-part harmony from John, Paul, and George. Recorded on 16 February 1965 at the Abbey Road studios in London (Ticket to Ride having been recorded the previous day), the single was released on 19 April. It was produced, of course, by George Martin, and the engineer was Norman Smith. The single reached #1 on the U.S. charts. The disc, Capitol Records 5407, is worth approximately $30 today while the picture sleeve might fetch as much as $100. "Yes It Is" also appeared on Past Masters Volume 1 in 1988, and a version with outtakes was included in The Beatles Anthology 2 in 1996.

If you wear red tonight
Remember what I said tonight
For red is the color that my baby wore
And what's more, it's true
Yes it is

Scarlet were the clothes she wore
Everybody knows I'm sure
I would remember all the things we planned
Understand, it's true
Yes it is, it's true
Yes it is

I could be happy with you by my side
If I could forget her, but it's my pride
Yes it is, yes it is
Oh, yes it is, yeah

Please don't wear red tonight
This is what I said tonight
For red is the color that will make me blue
In spite of you, it's true
Yes it is, it's true
Yes it is

I could be happy with you by my side
If I could forget her, but it's my pride
Yes it is, yes it is
Oh, yes it is, yeah

Please don't wear red tonight
This is what I said tonight
For red is the color that will make me blue
In spite of you, it's true
Yes it is, it's true
Yes it is, it's true
