Paul McCartney wrote his favourite Beatles song waiting for John Lennon to wake up


The Beatles wrote countless incredible songs, but what is Paul McCartney’s favourite of all the tracks he penned?

Now in the latest podcast episode of McCartney: A Life in Lyrics, the 81-year-old has shared exactly which one.

Macca confessed: “I’m often asked what my favourite song I’ve ever written is, and I don’t ever really want to I can’t answer it, but if pushed, I would go to Here, There, and Everywhere.”

The music legend penned the love ballad credited to Lennon-McCartney for The Beatles’ 1966 album Revolver and it turns out he wrote it just as John Lennon was waking up one morning.

McCartney shared: “I remember writing this song while waiting for John one day. I would go out to his house for a writing session, and he wasn’t always up. So I would often have 20 minutes, half an hour while someone told him I was here, and he would get up. 

“I remember sitting out by his swimming pool in his house in Weybridge, which is a golf suburb of London. I had my guitar because I was ready for the writing session. So we sat out and started something.. it just went quite nice and smoothly. 

“So by the time I came to write with John, by the time he deemed to get up and have his coffee, I would have something to go on.”
