Ask Me Why is een nummer van The Beatles dat in 1963 werd uitgebracht als B-kant van de single Please Please Me. In datzelfde jaar verscheen het nummer ook op het gelijknamige album. De single met Ask Me Why op de B-kant was succesvol en behaalde in diverse Engelse hitlijsten de eerste plaats.

Op Oudejaarsavond 1962 namen The Beatles het nummer voor het eerst op en wel live in de Star-Club te Hamburg en verscheen het in 1977 op het live-album Live! at the Star-Club in Hamburg, Germany; 1962.

De credits van Ask Me Why vermelden Paul McCartney en John Lennon als schrijvers van het nummer, maar het originele idee voor het lied was afkomstig van Lennon.[1] Het lied werd geschreven in het voorjaar van 1962. Lennon kwam met het idee en met hulp van McCartney werd het nummer afgemaakt.[1]

Op 6 juni 1962 waren The Beatles voor de eerste maal in de Abbey Road Studios in Londen om enkele nummers op te nemen.[2] Die dag speelden ze voor de producer enkele nummers, waaronder Ask Me Why, zodat hij kon beoordelen of hij ze een platencontract aan moest bieden.[3] De opnamen van die dag zijn echter gewist.[4]

Op 26 november waren The Beatles in de studio om de opvolger van Love Me Do, hun eerste single, op te nemen.[5] Dat werd Please Please Me. Die dag namen ze ook in zes takes Ask Me Why op. Ask Me Why was echter niet de enige optie voor de B-kant van de nieuwe single. The Beatles namen die dag ook een onbekend aantal takes van een lied genaamd Tip of My Tongue op.[5] Dit nummer werd echter niet goed genoeg bevonden, maar werd later wel uitgebracht als single van Tommy Quickly, een andere artiest uit de stal van manager Brian Epstein.[5]
