Hello Goodbye (Lennon/McCartney)

Hello Goodbye originates from a demonstration by Paul to Alistair Taylor (one of Brian Epstein's assistants) on how Paul went about writing songs. Paul asked Taylor to shout the opposite of whatever he sang as he played a chord on the piano. Weeks later, Paul brought the demo into the studio to record.
