John and Paul together in Trident Studios, London, photographed by Linda McCartney. (October 1st?, 1968)
What I cherish is that, apart from the venomous period, I know that I sat there and we wrote ‘Love Me Do’. And I sat there and we wrote ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’, and we screwed around with the lyrics. I know he brought in ‘In My Life’, and he had the first verse and the rest of it wasn’t written. And I know he brought in ‘Norwegian Wood’ and we developed the idea of setting the place on fire. I remember sitting there doing ‘Help!’, and then I’d come in with “When I was younger, so much younger than today”, and he’d have the main melody, and I’d do the counter melody. I can remember where we were, how it was and just magic moments where I’d be writing, “It’s getting better all the time,” and John would be sitting there – “It can’t get much worse.” Those moments. That’s what I cherish. No one can take it away from me.
