"There's a Place" is a original song by The Beatles. It has been released in various forms of media.
"There's a Place" was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The title was inspired by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim's "Somewhere" from West Side Story, which contained the line: "somewhere there's a place for us". McCartney owned the album of the soundtrack at the time of writing "There's a Place" and acknowledges its influence. The "place" in question was "the mind", making its subject matter slightly more cerebral than Britain's kissing and cuddling songs and America's surf music from that period. It says the usual Lennon things: 'In my mind there's no sorrow...' It's all in your mind." Composed at McCartney's Forthlin Road home, it was part of the group's stage repertoire in 1963. The song was recorded on 11 February 1963 in ten takes during the first of three sessions for Please Please Me.
