“Do you want to know a secret? Do you promise not to tell? When you’re standing by a wishing well, make a wish into the well, that’s all you have to do, and if you hear it echoing, your wish will soon come true.” Snow White first sang these words on screen in 1938. George Harrison and the Beatles released Do You Want To Know a Secret in 1963, at the heart of “Beatlemania.” The title and the first couple lines of the song were inspired by Snow White’s words from the 1937 classic.
