I’ve Just Seen A Face (Lennon/McCartney)

Named earlier as Aunty Gin’s Theme because the song was one which Paul had played for years at family get-togethers, George Martin’s Orchestra later recorded an instrumental version under that same working title.


“It was slightly country and western from my point of view. It was faster, though, it was a strange uptempo thing. I was quite pleased with it. The lyric works: it keeps dragging you forward, it keeps pulling you to the next line, there’s an insistent quality to it that I liked.” – Paul McCartney
