"Chains" is a cover song by The Beatles. It has been released in various forms of media.


"Chains" is a song by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. It was first a single by the Cookies, later it was a popular cover song for Liverpool bands after its release in November 1962, and was included briefly in The Beatles' live sets. They recorded it on February 11, 1963 for inclusion on their British debut, Please Please Me. Music critic Ian MacDonald criticized The Beatles' performance, writing that it was "slightly out-of-tune" and "lacked spontaneity". The Beatles played the song live on a number of BBC radio shows, including Side by Side, Here We Go and Pop Go the Beatles (though none of these performances were included on the 1994 compilation Live at the BBC).
