‘This Never Happened Before’ is the twelfth song on Paul McCartney’s 13th solo album Chaos And Creation In The Backyard. See more…

I was in America and I was actually getting a massage and I happened to play it and the girl who was doing the massage said, ‘Oh, I love that song, it’s magnificent,’ and she happened to tell me she was getting married. So very quietly I just sort of sent her, a few weeks later, she told me when she was getting married and you know where it would be, so I got her number off her, sent her a little letter saying, ‘Look, if you love it that much, why don’t you play this at your wedding?’ So I said, ‘but this is highly bootleggable,’ I said, ‘so just play it and send it me back. You can’t keep it, but,’ I said, ‘I’ll send you the proper record when we’re done with it.’

And it was great, really lovely. They did do that. They got married to it and it was like their first dance. Highly romantic stuff, this, but it was very nice because she just wrote me a letter, thanks and all that, and told me about the wedding and all that, about her husband but she just put this one little line, she said, ‘You know we had a great time. We laughed. We cried,’ and I thought that sums up that song for me.
