Paul McCartney – “Here, There, and Everywhere” Live
Love Is To Share!
“Here, There and Everywhere” was written by Paul McCartney and released on August 5, 1966 for The Beatles’ seventh studio album “Revolver.” Being mainly inspired by “God Only Knows” performed by Brian Wilson, this track is among McCartney’s personal favorites. He wrote this while he was at Lennon’s house, waiting for him to wake up.
McCartney recalled: “I sat out by the pool on one of the sun chairs with my guitar and started strumming in E. And soon [I] had a few chords, and I think by the time he’d woken up, I had pretty much written the song, so we took it indoors and finished it up.”
Most would describe this as the finest love song composed by McCartney. Lennon also had high praises for this track. Though the band had four takes during the recording, only the last one has been completed and added with vocals. The lead vocals was double-tracked by McCartney.
“The harmonies on that are very simple, just basic triads which the boys hummed behind and found very easy to do. There’s nothing very clever, no counterpoint, just moving block harmonies. Very simple to do… but very effective.” — George Martin
