"Maybe Tomorrow" was the name of a song composed and sung by guitarist Tom Evans of The Iveys, which was released as the group's first worldwide single on Apple Records. It also served as the title track for the album Maybe Tomorrow, and it was also included on the Badfinger album Magic Christian Music released in 1970.

History

The Iveys were seen as a promising young Beatle-esque band by Apple Records, and the first single was chosen carefully. Ultimately, "Maybe Tomorrow" was chosen, in part because of the lush string orchestration added by producer Tony Visconti, and it was designated as Apple 5—the first single released by Apple after its initial, much-publicized release of four nearly-simultaneous singles at its launch. Paul McCartney personally assured The Iveys that the song would be a hit. However, the song flopped in the U.K. and only reached #67 in the Billboard U.S. charts. Despite that, it surprisingly reached #1 in the Netherlands and was a major hit in much of continental Europe and in Japan.

Apple had planned for this song to be the title song of The Iveys' debut album because of its regional success. However, before the album was released, Allan Klein took over as head of Apple Corps. Klein promptly blocked release of the album except in places where "Maybe Tomorrow" had been a hit.

When Apple decided to include older songs on the "first" Badfinger release, the pseudo-soundtrack Magic Christian Music, both of The Iveys' singles were included. Thus, "Maybe Tomorrow" is also included as a Badfinger song, and it appears on both greatest hits albums of Badfinger that were released by Apple.

Notes

In 1971 the Mexican band "El Amor" was covered in his self-titled debut.
