McCartney opted to play his Höfner bass guitar on the song live. On record, he famously also played lead guitar, 1965 being the year which saw Paul starting to really take up the guitar again for group recordings. The original recording was commited to tape in February 1965, and a music video (of sorts) was part of the "Help!" motion picture.

The song was written by Paul while he and his then girlfriend Jane Asher was on holiday in Tunisia. We hope McCartney will keep the song in the set list for a while, allowing us to experience it live when the tour continues. It may not be the most profound of Beatles songs, in fact it sounds almost like a blueprint for a Monkees tune, but it sure is a catchy ditty, and Paul's distinctive lead guitar licks were most unusual for its time.
Meanwhile, Paul has been adding dates to his current tour, and he keeps hopping between Europe and USA so much during his summer stint, he may as well change the name of the tour to the "Here There and Everywhere" tour. Here's a list of upcoming concerts:
