The Beatles - I’ve Just Seen a Face
Paul wrote this song at Jane Asher’s parent’s house on Wimpole Street, London. Paul’s aunt, Aunt Jin, liked the song very much, the song had the title “Auntie Jin’s Theme” until the lyrics were completed.
“It was slightly country and western from my point of view. It was faster, though, it was a strange uptempo thing. I was quite pleased with it. The lyric works: it keeps dragging you forward, it keeps pulling you to the next line, there’s an insistent quality to it that I liked.” - Paul McCartney
