Actually, John Lennon wrote it in 1963, but The Beatles never recorded it for release, only a demo. It was given to Billy J. Kramer & the Dakotas who had a hit with it. Says Billy J. Kramer:
  • Billy J. Kramer recalled to the Daily Mail in December 2014: "John came to me on my 20th birthday when I was on tour with them and told me he'd written a song for me."

    "The next time I was recording at Abbey Road, he came and played it for me and we recorded it there and then. That was Bad to Me."
Cool bit of trivia.
Just read up on this one. John recorded
this song as a demo, and was never released
by the Beatles, handing it off to Kramer
instead.
