LET IT BE, The Beatles

だから言ったんだ「ちょっと詰めてくれよ 僕もそれに乗るから」って
頼むよ 氷みたいに冷たくしないで

ビートルズが1970年にリリースしたアルバムLET IT BEの9曲目。ジョン・レノンは自分の曲だと主張し、ポール・マッカートニーは自伝"Many Years From Now"で10代の時に共作したものだと書いている。



映画LET IT BEの劇中、ポールがこの曲を含む初期の曲について語るシーンがある。彼はここで「『ワン・アフター909』の歌詞は好きじゃない」と言っていた。

from the movie “LET IT BE" (1970)

…one of the first songs we’ve ever done. We all used to sag off every school day, you know, and go back to my house. And the two of us would just sit there and write, 'Love Me Do’ and 'Too Bad About Sorrows.’ And there’re a lot from then, about 100 songs from then that we never reckoned. 'Cuz they were all very unsophisticated songs, but they’re great, you know. We always hated the words of 'One After 909.’

John Lennon (1980)
That was something I wrote when I was about seventeen. I lived at 9 Newcastle Road. I was born on the ninth of October… the ninth month. It’s just a number that follows me around, but numerologically, apparently I’m a number six or a three or something, but it’s all part of nine.

Paul McCartney (1994)
It was one that we always liked doing, and we rediscovered it. There were a couple of tunes that we wondered why we never put out– either George Martin didn’t like them enough to, or he favored others. It’s not a great song but it’s a great favorite of mine because it has great memories for me of John and I trying to write a bluesy freight-train song. There were alot of those songs at the time, like 'Midnight Special,’ 'Freight Train,’ 'Rock Island Line,’ so this was the 'One After 909.’ She didn’t get the 909, she got the one after it !
