McCartney Demo Screen Shot

Screen shot from the video

Watching Paul McCartney demo one of his most beautiful compositions for Beatles producer George Martin is like being the proverbial fly on the wall witnessing greatness.

It’s just Macca – er, Sir Paul – on guitar and that gorgeous voice. 54 seconds in, he mimics a French horn and feels obliged to explain that to Martin and the unidentified engineer whom we see briefly from behind.

“For No One” was originally recorded in 1966 and included on Revolver. This version is believed to be McCartney demo-ing songs with Martin circa 1982 for his 1984 movie Give My Regards to Broad Street.

After you watch this Classic Video, check out the final fact below.

McCartney was just 23 when he wrote and originally recorded this song!

    I believe this is an outtake from the early-80s movie “Give My Regards to Broad Street.”
