The best tune on the album
[O]ne of my favourite songs of the Beatles
- John Lennon
Paul was the primary composer of Here, There and Everywhere, which was written and recorded for the 1966 album, Revolver - widely considered to be among The Beatles' best albums.
Paul, John, and George Martin have all lavished praise on the song as have fans and music critics alike. Paul says it is his favorite composition, and it is almost certainly one of his best love songs.
Paul's lead vocal is double-tracked and also contributed acoustic guitar and bass. John and George provide back-up vocals, and George plays lead guitar, as usual. Ringo does his part on the drums. All four contribute finger snaps.
Here, There and Everywhere is a simple melody with an uncomplicated structure, plain lyrics, and a lush arrangement that depends on the fullness of the backing vocals. Paul himself said he was looking for a "Beach Boys" sound for the harmonies, and his vocal line was something in the style of Marianne Faithfull, whom he also admired.
Paul recalls that he wrote this song sitting out by John Lennon's swimming pool while he was waiting for John to wake up.
