A lot of People seem to really dislike this song, and i wonder why? It is a Great song that was improved by the Strings and Choir of Phil Spector, that is very memorable and has beautiful lyrics. What about this song do people dislike?

I don't care for the strings or choir. And neither did Paul, but that could be because no one asked him about it before adding it. I like the Naked version.

I hate The Naked version because it isn't the same take as I'm used to and because It has lyrical changes., When I want it sans Strings, I check the Anthology 3 version on YouTube.

I think it's tedious.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

It's Beautiful. I liken it an Operatic performance by Paul McCartney

I'll tell what's beautiful: For No One, Here There And Everywhere, Martha My Dear, I Will, etc. etc. Perfect McCartney compositions, not tedious McCartney boredom trips.

Martha My Dear is a good song about a Dog, Neither are For No One or I Will are Beautiful.

It's just sappy. It's the equivalent of a slice of chocolate cake with chocolate and caramel sauce and fudge ripple ice cream with a pound of sugar dumped on it.

And this is coming from someone who really appreciates Maybe I'm Amazed, I Will, and Here, There, and Everywhere.

I like it because it describes a very poignant moment in my life.

 

So I can't tell if it's sappy or not. It works for me. It was for long, long time my favorite Beatle song. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Finally someone who agrees. Is the poignant moment too personal to share with the BB? I'll give you  Apples apple01apple01apple01apple01apple01apple01apple02apple02apple02apple02apple02apple02apple02apple02apple02apple02apple02apple02apple01apple01apple01apple01apple01apple01

Well I think I have said it before so…
 

I was in love with a guy, we were engaged and he broke up with me for reasons he didn't explain. He just said it was the best for both of us. He was not a jerk at all, the situation was truly terrible for him and his family. When I came back home I was totally heartbroken. I mean it, totally heartbroken. I think I lost like 8 kilos because I didn't feel like eating or even getting up.

Just a few days later, for no special reason, I was listening to this song and when I heard "You left me standing here, long long time ago, don't leave me waiting here lead me to your door" I just broke in tears because that's what I wanted to tell him. And even today, when I hear the "and many times I've cried, anyway you'll never know", I feel tears because I think of him, and also I think of my deceased Mom.

 

So there you go. That's the story.

 

Edit : Something has the same effect on me. And funny enough I heard these 2 songs live with Paul in the concert last May and I didn't feel sad or like crying. I just enjoyed them.

WHAT? How can you not see the beauty in "For No One?" The horn solo, the mournful vocal by Paul, and, of course, the poetic lyrical beauty all make this my second-favorite Paul song. 

"There will be times when all the things she said will fill your head; you won't forget her."

That actually sounds pretty good, minus the pound of sugar and caramel sauce.

I think I was hungry when I was trying to find an analogy. 🙂

I know! Hungry analogies are better than a hot fudge sundae with whipped cream.

SEMI-OFF-TOPIC QUESTION:

Paulrus, what time is it in Australia? In Utah, it's 9:22. In 24 hour time, that's 21:22.
