The Beatles, it is safe to say, really hit the jackpot. Comprised of four talented songwriters, the group had a lot of material to work with. Over the course of their career, they fine-tuned their songcraft, constantly introducing new elements into the mix to rejuvenate their approach, leaving we lucky listeners with albums that hum with life.

It would be wrong, however, to suggest that The Beatles always got every song right the first time around. Any songwriter knows that a decent track is a slippery thing and can easily evade one’s grasp. Perhaps that’s why John Lennon and Paul McCartney always ensured that when they sat down to write a song, they got the whole thing laid out in one fell swoop.

As McCartney revealed in a recent interview, “Usually I’ll sit down and I’ll start something I fancy doing, you know, either a key that I fancy playing around in – [on guitar] or on piano – and I see where I go to first, I just see where I go first, just see where it leads me. It’s how we always did it,” he said, before continuing: “I would sit down with John and we just sort of follow this road.”
