7. McCartney wrote “Here, There and Everywhere” while waiting for Lennon to get out of bed.
Paul McCartney turned up at John Lennon’s Kenwood mansion for a Revolver writing session, only to find his partner still in bed, despite it being the afternoon.
“I sat out by the pool on one of the sun chairs with my guitar,” McCartney says in Barry Miles’ Many Years From Now. Not long after, he produced “Here, There and Everywhere,” which came to be one of Lennon’s favorite Beatles songs.
“John might have helped with a few last words,” McCartney continues. “When I sang it in the studio I remember thinking, I’ll sing it like Marianne Faithfull; something no one would ever know.”
