Back in the Sunshine Again (Paul solo)

Here we are
Back in the sunshine again
No more worries
And no more pain

We're leaving behind
All our troubles and strife
And that's the way it's gonna' be
For the rest of my life

Can be paired up with theme-wise with Here Comes The Sun .

Copied from the Y-Not thread (a post I made in 2013):

When Ringo sings this from Mystery of the Night

I hear your footsteps coming near.
It's the sound I love to hear.

I thought of this from Don't Pass Me By

I listen for your footsteps
Coming up the drive
Listen for your footsteps
But they don't arrive

When Ringo starts singing the chorus of Mystery of the Night, I melt.
Then you fall right into me,
Mmm, it's Destiny.
You can hear the angels sing --
Something feels so right.
We don't even have to say the words;
I can feel the world around us turn.
Feel our love's alive, living in the mystery of the night.

I just thought about this while listening to When I'm Sixty-Four on the way home.  In the section

You'll be older too
And if you say the word
I could stay with you

could he be referring to the word in "The Word " aka Love.  That would be neat if that actually was an intentional reference.

Does anybody here know when Yesterday and Help were composed? Which was written first? They were composed, if I’m not mistaken, by Paul and John respectively. And I’m given to understand that Help was originally written as kind of a ballad, with a slower tempo. They both talk about the past that’s gone, and the singer’s current pain and longing for that past. I’m wondering to what extent Paul’s writing Yesterday influenced John, or John’s writing Help influenced Paul. Cheers, Oudis.

Help is quite easy to date, @Oudis. The title for the film was decided upon in early April 1965 (replacing the already announced title of Eight Arms to Hold You, and the song was recorded on 13 April. Paul joined John out at Weybridge for a writing session, because John had an idea for the title track, and Paul was there to make sure John got it finished as it was urgent. Looking at what is known of their activities around that time, it seems likely to have been written on Saturday 10 April 1965, following the filming of two largely lost performances for the BBC's Top of the Pops (Ticket To Ride  and Yes It Is ).

Yesterday  is more difficult. It's dated to around May 1965 by Miles in Many Years from Now, with the lyrics finished in June while Paul was staying in Portugal at the villa of one of The Shadows. However, George Martin was adamant that he first heard the tune in Paris in January 1964. Myself, I think the "Scrambled Eggs" version probably floated around for longer in than a few weeks in May. I think it's likely the tune pre-dates Help !, while it's lyric came much later.

If there was an influence between the two songs, and I am not convinced, Help was completed and recorded around two months before Yesterday .

The following lyrics of Do You Want To Know A Secret and All I've Got To Do respectively are very similar:

Closer
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I'm in love with you

and

All I've Got To Do
Is whisper in your ear
The words you long to hear
And I'll be kissing you

Paul in Get Out of My Way on his Off The Ground album:

"I don't need anybody to tell me
How to be right."

Paul in Fixing A Hole

And it really doesn't matter if I'm wrong I'm right

I wonder if this is what he said to his kids when they told him to not marry you-know-who. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

"I've got plenty of time of my own" from Mrs Vanderbilt goes with "I've spent a lot of time on my own" from Friends To Go.

_____________

English garden:
John: sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun to come (I Am The Walrus )

Paul: Miles and miles of English garden / Stretching past the willow tree (English Tea)

Ringo: Barbara and me in our English garden (English Garden)

Does someone from House Harrison know of a Georgle song that mentions an English garden?
