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.

Quotes

“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
