The musician received the ribbon from Prince Charles. “The Beatles have recorded my song” 79-year-old Murray, who wrote songs for artists such as Cliff Richard and Tony Christie, told Press Association (PA) that the prince asked him if he still makes music. He replied that he would like to get back to work soon. For example, Murray revealed that in 1963 he also wrote the song How Do You Do It for The Beatles. “The Beatles have recorded my song. I didn’t like it so I didn’t release it. They thought it was fine, because I think they didn’t want to release it either. It was released by Gerry and the Pacemakers instead.” The British heir to the throne also presented awards to, among others, paralympic volleyball player Netra Rana and golfer Georgia Hall.
