In this snippet from a recent interview, Faul basically admits that he did not write early Beatles' songs:

"Is it true that sometimes you have to relearn the older stuff?" Roker asked.
"Yeah, I have to relearn everything," McCartney said. "I've written an awful lot, so you can't retain them all. We go into rehearsal, and I learn them. 'Oh yeah, that's how it goes.' "
McCartney added his own songs often surprise him.
"Sometimes when you're relearning them, do you kind of look and go, 'You know, this is pretty good?' " Roker wondered.
"I do," McCartney said. "I really do, you know. That's one of the joys of doing some of the old songs. And you say, 'Oh, that's clever. I wouldn't have done that.' “
Faul is constantly making statements against interest(ing)!
