The title was taken from a letters column that ran in a popular British music newspaper called The New Musical Express
(the NME). The column was called "From You to Us."
When this same newspaper refered to "From Me to You" as "Below-par Beatles," it upset John Lennon, who talked about it in his last print interview before his death when he told Rolling Stone
: "Maybe it wasn't as good as 'Please Please Me
,' but below par? I'll never forget that one. That's when I first realized you've got to keep it up, there's some sort of system where you get on the wheel and you've got to keep going around."
