Here, There And Everywhere had to grow on me a bit because it is so sappy, but I would say know it's my favorite song of Paul's, or at least one of my favorites. I get the sense from this that if the Beatles would have come out in the earlier 50's they could have been a pretty great Doo-wop group.

I'm with Joe (and John, and George M.) - I think HT&E is fabulous and not sappy in the least. A song that actually would've made an episode of "Friends" enjoyable had I seen it. Great Beach Boys-influenced vocals, lyrics that Paul obviously put some thought into, guitars, finger snaps. Beautiful!

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

You know, when I was a kid my favorite Beatles was George, later I fell in love with Ringo, and in my teens, I fell in love with John. But I never felt the same for Paul. He was the lesser Beatle. But after watching him live, love struck on me and it's growing and growing. I might never accept some of his songs, (like Obladi Oblada) but the heck I don't like Piggies. So it's not 100% inconditional love.

but one of the songs I refused to love was Here There And Everywhere. I have a zero sentimentalism chip very deep in my soul that makes me roll my eyes every time I listen to something chessy like the chorus of the song. Yeah, they're sweet, yeah they're the Beatles, yeah they're great, but to me, they're chessy.

 

But then I listened to this.

 

 

And then I listened to this. Damn great music.

 

 

And then I listened again to this again…

 

 

And then I take my hands to my heart and I look at the Fab Four pic I have on my board and I say "Guys, I love your music. Do I have to have a massive crush on you four????" and they say "Yes you do".  a-hard-days-night-john-1a-hard-days-night-george-7a-hard-days-night-ringo-4a-hard-days-night-paul-5

 

Damn it.

The problem with the armonies is that I used to have this mental picture in my mind of John and George singing it. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

I love Kermit, and I know about kissing a frog to find your prince,

but my mental picture was too damn funny to keep a straIght face. Now the armonies are growning on me. A lot.

 

And yes, my mind works in strange ways.. I know...

I used to love 'Here, There And Everywhere when I was a kid when 'Revolver' came out in the summer of 1966. But as time has passed, I don't like it as much as I used to. Paul used to be my favorite when I was young but as I got older and music changed especially with FM radio and Underground Radio it just seemed to me that Paul was just a Pop Artist and I wanted more depth in the music I liked. 

I wonder regarding all the Paul fans out there, how many like him because he is still alive. If he had passed away many years ago and John was still alive, would he still be as popular.

Fair enough Von Bontee a-hard-days-night-george-10

So, let's say it's too sentimental. And the thing is, they're good, but I don't like The Beach Boys. As I say, my mind works in weird ways. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Mithveaen? Do you have to be so awesome all the time?

Sure! Why not? 

I STILL think it's too cheesy for me. 

The *9* proves my point.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

They were/are "cheesyheads".

 

But wait, I want to add something: The lyrics are cheesy, the music is heavenly.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

It's a bit of both.
Because John died first, he's seen by the general public as the genius, and also the maverick who took loads of drugs, was horrible to his friends and abandoned his wife and son for an evil hag. Paul, contrastingly, is seen as the lovely one, who wrote sweet love songs, had a devoted relationship with an animal rights activist, and was the only reason John stayed sane, though he isn't thought to be as talented or experimental. McCartney's been able to hush up some of the nastier bits of Beatles history, such as his treatment of George, or Frankie Schwartz, or the bits that put him a bad light, like his request to have Let It Be changed after telling Spector it was fine and clearing it for production. I think if Paul had died first, he'd be remembered as the Beatles who cheated on his girlfriend, brought his new flame into the studio, married a groupie, took loads of drugs, was horrible to his friends and was argumentative and obtuse, but also the first Beatle to embrace the avant-garde and wrote some ground breaking songs. Lennon, contrastingly, would be a devout lover of a peace protestor who wrote shallow songs, and a great father to Sean (though I don't think his treatment of Julian would be overlooked).
