1966-Number 1 single.
Best Bit-At 0.15.It was 1966 and The Beatles were starting to take things to a different level.
None of The Beatles played an instrument on this song.It was a classical string ensemble of studio musicians comprising four violins,two violas and two cellos.McCartney did the vocals with Lennon and Harrison providing harmonies.
McCartney said he came up with the name ‘Eleanor’ from the actress Eleanor Bron who had starred in the film ‘Help!’ ‘Rigby’ came from the name of a store in Bristol,’Rigby & Evans Ltd,Wine & Spirit Shippers,’which he noticed while seeing his girlfriend of the time,Jane Asher.However,it has been pointed out that the graveyard of St Peter’s Church in Liverpool,where Lennon and McCartney first met at the Woolton Village garden fete in the afternoon of 6th July 1957,contains the gravestone of an individual called Eleanor Rigby.
‘All the lonely people where do they all come from.All the lonely people where do they all belong.’
