Good Day Sunshine

"Good Day Sunshine" is an album track recorded by the Beatles on 8/9 June 1966 and released on their album "Revolver." Paul has said about "Good Day Sunshine":
It was really very much a nod to The Lovin’ Spoonful’s Daydream, the same traditional, almost trad-jazz feel. That was our favourite record of theirs. Good Day Sunshine was me trying to write something similar to Daydream. John and I wrote it together at Kenwood, but it was basically mine, and he helped me with it.
George Martin plays the dominant piano on "Good Day Sunshine," one of his most direct and obvious contributions to the Beatles sound. Martin really deserved more credit for his playing an instrument that was as important to the song as any the Beatles were playing. However, Martin wisely was content to remain in the shadows and simply assist the Beatles as best he could. It's undoubtedly for that reason that the Beatles continued to use him not only while the group was in existence, but individually after it was disbanded, too.

Paul McCartney likes "Good Day Sunshine" well enough to pull it out of his quiver on occasion. For instance, McCartney included it on his "Give My Regards to Broad Street" soundtrack album. Paul also played it on his 2005 US tour, leading to its inclusion on his "The Space Within Us" album the following year. If there was any real fault with "Good Day Sunshine," it was that it was just too short at barely 2 minutes long. However, that was the style in those days and it wasn't until the following year that the Beatles really began lengthening their songs.
