"Like Dreamers Do" is a song written by Paul McCartney in 1957 and is one of the earliest written songs credited to Lennon-McCartney. It was recorded by the Beatles in 1962 prior to Ringo Starr joining the band and featured Pete Best on drums. It was most notably performed by the group at their unsuccessful 1962 audition for Decca Records.
In 1964, the track was recorded by Decca Records' band the Applejacks and released as the group's debut single, reaching No. 20 on the UK Singles Chart. The Applejacks worked with Mike Leander from Decca as the musical director.
Bas Muys covered "Like Dreamers Do" on his 1989 album Secret Songs: Lennon & McCartney similarly to The Beatles' original performance. Australian Beatles tribute band The Beatnix also covered it for their 1998 release It's Four You.
