“One of us might think of a song completely, and the other might just add a bit. Or we might write alternate lines. We never argue. If one of us says he doesn’t like a bit, the other agrees. It just doesn’t matter that much. I care about being a song writer, but I don’t care passionately about each song.”

It was at this recording session that two Beatles fans that regularly hung around EMI, 16-year-old Lizzy Bravo and 17-year-old Gayleen Pease, were invited in by Paul McCartney to sing on the track with them. The girls would end up singing the refrain “Nothing’s gonna change my world” several times before being escorted back outside.
