Here, There and Everywhere - Take 14

Paul Slows it Down

Here is Paul crooning his beloved "Here, There and Everywhere' from the "Revolver" recording sessions. For true fans, this is Take 14. Paul said in 2018 that "Here, There and Everywhere" is perhaps his favorite composition. John Lennon considered it the "best composition" on "Revolver," which many Beatles fans consider to be the band's best album (though it has a lot of stiff competition).

Some insist that this is the best version of "Here, There and Everywhere," perhaps because it is "all Paul," with the other Beatles barely noticeable. It is just Paul sitting there in his own little world, singing his own song. However, not everybody agrees. Personally, I prefer the album version, which is a bit faster and fuller. But, it's nice to have choices, and to each their own. This was toward the end of The Beatles' period of harmonizing to each others' songs, and it is done subtly and elegantly here (and on the album version as well).

Lots of nice early pictures of Paul accompany the song in the video. Released as track 5 of Revolver on 5 August 1966 after being recorded on 14 June 1966 at EMI Studios, "Here, There and Everywhere" was not released as a single until 1976 by Emmylou Harris. Many consider it among the best of the Beatles' songs, and it certainly is the most soothing. "Here, There and Everywhere" also is one that has grown in appreciation over time while some others, such as "Eleanor Rigby" and "Yesterday," are still revered but perhaps not quite as much as in the 1960s.
