"Misery" is a original song by The Beatles. It has been released in various forms of media.
"Misery" was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. It was written backstage after the Beatles' performance at the King's Hall, Stoke-on-Trent, on 26 January 1963, and later completed at Paul McCartney's Forthlin Road home. A 1963 single by Kenny Lynch made "Misery" the first Beatles' song to be covered by another artist. Normal studio multi-track tape speed at the time was 15 ips (inches per second), but "Misery" was recorded at 30 ips, as George Martin intended to personally add piano at a later date, and preferred playing this at half-tempo an octave below.
