A cover versionby Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers, produced by Paul McCartney, made the British Top 10 in the summer of 1966. Another cover version by Earth, Wind & Firetopped the US R&B charts and reached #9 on the US pop charts in 1978.
Development of song
Though officially credited to
Lennon-McCartney, McCartney was primarily responsible for the writing of this track, to which he also contributes lead vocals. John Lennonwas said to have been very fond of the song, saying this was, "Paul at his best," according to a 1980 Playboy interview. McCartney attempted to write in the style of American soul musicfor this song, as particularly inspired by the Stax label. The soul revue-style horns are especially allusive to the Stax " Memphis soul" sound. Traces of Motowninfluence are apparent as well. It was recorded at Abbey Road Studiosbetween 7 Apriland 17 June 1966and evolved considerably between the first takes and the final version released on album. The mono and stereoversions of the recording also feature completely different ad libs in the fade-out.
Following the outro
chordsof "I Want to Tell You", the song immediately starts with the horns. McCartney's vocals clock in at 0:07. The predominant instrument playing is the horns, similar to the soul records of the late '50s and early '60s. The chorus of the song appears at 1:04, with the song's title sung. The song switches between a verse and the refrain. The electric guitar solo clocks in at 1:53, and at 2:10 the horns come in, playing the same chordsas the song opened with. The song closes with fading vocals of McCartney, much akin to the soul records of the time. The percussion instrument most predominant is the tambourine, overdubbed onto the standard drum kit.
Although many believed it was a love song that Paul was writing for a girl, he later disclosed the song was about marijuana in
Barry Miles' book "". Many lyricsfrom the song suggested this - "I took a ride I didn't know what I would find there / Another road where maybe I could see some other kind of mind there.", "What can I do, what can I be when I'm with you I want to stay there / If I am true I will never leave and if I do I know the way there."
