For Sunday: the Beatles sing “Here, There, and Everywhere”

beatles here there everywhere


Everyone knows the big Beatles songs: “Hey Jude,” “All You Need Is Love,” “Help!”, “I Want To Hold Your Hand.” But there are literally dozens of smaller songs that are really just as good: three-minute masterpieces.

 

 

This, from their album “Revolver,” is one of those three-minute masterpieces. It’s a gentle ballad with a few soft French-horn notes late in the song, just for effect. The lyrics play with the words of the title back and forth: “here,” “there,” “everywhere.”

 

 

The result is one of those love songs that we’re still listening to fifty years later.

 

 

Enjoy.
