Hello Goodbye:

--- Quote from: Dcazz on February 09, 2013, 04:02:18 PM ---I like the song but I agree the vocals weren't thought out well. According to The Recording sessions this was originally written for Help but rejected.
Paul plays electric piano...

Take another listen to those vocals, Dave.  They're very well thought out and sung with both John and Paul taking turns singing melody and harmony vocals.  There's a bit of double tracking in there too.

The electric piano Paul plays is the Hohner Pianet C which makes an appearance on the Salisbury Plain...

A gourd and I think the "some other noise making instrument being played at the same time" Todd refers to.

It was done in a very sloppy manner though Barry. That was my point. The song would definitely benefit from some tightening up from a studio standpoint. It just seems like they went in and knocked this one out asap if you get my drift.

Still a very difficult vocal arrangement, Todd, with John and Paul alternating melody and harmony vocals in the verses and singing in unison at an octave in the bridges.  I don't know how long they spent on the song but the result was fine, in my opinion.  But I've always liked this song for its mature love sentiments.

The song was done in 4 takes.

Here's what Paul thought of it-
    I seem to remember it as mine. I would claim it as a 60-40 but it might have been totally me. Not awfully memorable. Not one of the better songs but they did a job, they were very handy for albums or b-sides. You need those kind of sides.

(I'm just busting your chops Barry. The songs just fine and if you like it, thats awesome. I dont hate it and cringe when I hear it, its just that its not one my favorites. Anyways, just poking fun and its all cool as long as you like it so dont be hating on me.)
