#48: ‘For No One’- another masterpiece from Revolver- written by Paul McCartney- who said he wrote it in the bathroom of a ski resort in the Swiss Alps- after having an argument with his girlfriend at the time Jane Asher. Paul and Ringo are the only Beatles on this recording- but the most memorable part of the recording is performed by an outside- Alan Civil on the french horn. John Lennon who could be critical not only of some of McCartney’s songs- but his own- would call this one of his favorites of Paul’s.

  1. For me, this song has appeared too early on to countdown. It’s my stand out track from Revolver, and that album has a metric tonne of contenders for best track! The Rickie Lee Jones version is fabulous as well.
