I guess we have to add this one to the songs George didn't play lead on!

I'm liking it Moog, I'm liking it...

Finally his lottery ticket comes up with all six numbers... he sees her for the manipulative b**** she always was and with all the girls in the neighbourhood now throwing themselves at him he realises the shy girl who wouldn't take his phone calls and hid behind the curtains when he called around (making him feel like a no-hoper) at the start of the opera was the right one for him all along... so they finally overcome their awkwardness and hook up together with all the other girls looking on in envy...

cue George to close the show!  ;D

Nothing like a happy ending.  ;yes

Yes, totally agree with how this song and WYD pair off very well.

For what's it worth, I think No Reply is easily the best song on the album.

Un under-rated song from an under-rated album.

I remember seeing Yes play this in concert when they only had two albums to their name. They knew it was a good song.

See what you think of their version :

Very well done by Yes.  Here's a live performance from their 35th Anniversary tour in 2004...

They were fans and in their early years were influenced by The Beatles.  It was nice to see them add that extra bit of tribute to The Beatles.

These days I really do like the Yes cover version, but when I first heard it with my Beatles-mad cousin back in the 70s I remember we fell about laughing.

we couldn't believe they'd given it a full two minute build up before the vocals!   ha2ha

It summed up for us the over-inflated pomposity of Prog Rock!!

I think it still does. But things were going to get a lot worse...

I've always loved this song and it's been going around in my head recently. I'd never noticed that it's Macca song with a Lennon vocal. The verse does sound more Lennonesque than the chorus. Could it have been a collaboration?

It seems that John did a small contribution to the song.

JOHN (1980): "'Every Little Thing' is his song. Maybe I threw in something."

PAUL (1994): "'Every Little Thing,' like most of the stuff I did, was my attempt at the next single... but it became an album filler rather than the great almighty single. It didn't have quite what was required."
