McCartney wrote the song in a music room at the home of Jane Asher, where he was living at the time. He hoped that it would be released as a single, but it “didn’t have quite what was required”, and was released on Beatles for Sale instead.Every Little Thing” is a rare example of a Lennon/McCartney tune in which one member of the partnership was primary composer (here McCartney) but the other sang lead vocal (here John Lennon). McCartney sings harmony, although one can hear him better in the refrain. The song’s composer is not in question: McCartney claimed the song as described above, and Lennon said in an interview with Playboy that McCartney wrote it.Recording The released version was recorded by the Beatles in four takes at EMI Studios on 29 September 1964, and then five more on 30 September.

They were enjoying themselves on the second night, take six was aborted due to McCartney burping his vocals, and take seven was finished but ended in loud laughter. It is one of few early Beatles tracks to feature “exotic” instrumentation: Ringo Starr plays the timpani on the track to add punctuating one-two flourishes to the refrains. This appeared for the first time on the ninth take, along with a guitar intro and piano piece.Reviews Music critic Ian MacDonald praised the song’s “emotional depth” and used this song and others as counter-arguments to the caricature of McCartney as an emotional lightweight. Richie Unterberger of Allmusic also praised the song and its “infectious chorus”. This song was revisited briefly during the stressful rehearsals that were recorded for the Get Back / Let It Be project, with Harrison playing the lick and McCartney joining in.Personnel The Beatles;Paul McCartney _ lead vocal, bass, piano;John Lennon _ lead vocal, twelve-string lead guitar, acoustic guitar;George Harrison _ acoustic guitar, rhythm guitar;Ringo Starr _ drums, timpani;George Martin _ producer;Norman Smith _ engineer;Cover versions In 1969, Yes covered this song on their self-titled debut album.
