I saw someone reference this recently, and I can’t believe I didn’t think of this myself.  John’s last words to Paul were reportedly “Think of me every Now And Then , old friend”.  Kind of spooky, eh?

It deserves one for technical achievement if nothing else.

I think that aspect makes the project important to Paul. It couldn’t help but impact your soul, with those words being with you all those years. I’m glad they ultimately finished the song.

I listen to the song regularly – all four Beatles nailed it, across the generations they made this a reality. I think it fits into the catalogue nicely.

Sometimes Now And Then morphs into Look At Me in my head. Someone should do a mash-up.

So far, this is my favourite Now And Then cover version, performed by IMY2:

I’m also impressed with IMY2’s covers of other Beatle songs, including this version of Blackbird with piano accompaniment:

A few months on and I still think this song is fantastic. The lyrics hold really strongly and the production is very solid.

It could be my favourite of the ‘new’ songs they worked on and released.

I do love Now And Then , but my favourite has got to be Free As A Bird . Simply because you can feel George coursing through the whole track, it feels like the last true collaboration with all 4 Beatles.

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

of days

I like the sound of Ringo’s snare rimshot on this song — nice and solid.  I wonder if he came up with that on his own, or did bossy Paul coach him on what to do…?

Now today I find, you have changed your mind
