“John and I wrote a lot of stuff together, one on one, eyeball to eyeball. Like in 'I Want to Hold Your Hand,' I remember when we got the chord that made the song.

John and I were in Jane Asher's house, downstairs in the cellar playing on the piano at the same time. And we had, Oh you-u-u/ got that something...'

I hit this chord and I turn to John and say, 'That's it!' I said, 'Do that again!'

In those days, we really used to absolutely write like that...

both playing into each other's noses.”

Paul McCartney
