Officially appears on Anthology 1. I'll Cry Instead. I'll Get You. Spread the love! If you like what you are seeing, share it on social networks and let others know about The Paul McCartney Project. By the time they did record it for their fourth LP, the rhythm had changed from a rockabilly shuffle to a gentle cha-cha.
Ringo Starr kept the beat by smacking his palms on his knees. As usual though, the credit goes to the successful songwriting partnership of Lennon-McCartney. I was about Indeed, that recording still exists as a bootleg which has Stuart Sutcliffe on bass.
This recording also has slightly different lyrics. The first verse, like all of them, are a standard eight measures long and features Paul's double-tracked vocals in the first four measures and single-tracked vocals in the last four measures.
The awkward chord pattern used in the first four measures makes it hard to determine the home key, but we comfortably arrive there in the key of C as the fifth measure appears. After the verse concludes with Harrison's guitar riff, a structurally identical second verse follows. The only difference here, other than different lyrics in the first four measures, is the chording in the last two measures, which alter the key chord to a "seventh" as a segue to the bridge.
The bridge is also eight measures long but differs vocally from the verses by the appearance of John's lower harmonies as suggested and written by George Martin. Although both of the melodic phrases in the bridge conclude at the home key, the final measure moves abruptly to an unexpected chord to segue back into the awkward chord pattern of the third verse. This third verse is almost identical to the first verse except for a few words, the first verse beginning with " one day you'll look to see I've gone " and the third verse beginning with " one day you'll find that I have gone.
We then move into another verse which contains the simple eight-note sliding guitar solo from George Harrison in the first four measures. The remainder of the verse brings back the single-tracked vocals from Paul to once again highlight the title of the song.
This verse also ends with a "seventh" chord because of it preceding a repeat of the bridge. This second bridge is followed by a repeat of the third verse, which concludes the song after the finger-picking riff from George Harrison. The emphasis isn't on the musicianship of the group per se, but on the song itself. Nonetheless, all four Beatles play their part with enough skill to convincingly depict the charming sentiments of the song.
Paul's simple bass lines don't do much more than emphasize the chord changes, while his vocals are predictably right on pitch. The higher register singing in the bridge is noteworthy for credit, especially as a counterpoint to Lennon's lower harmonies, which are also executed easily but perfectly.
Lennon's acoustic rhythm guitar work is played somewhat aggressively but is well executed nonetheless. Harrison's sporadic guitar picking throughout the song is well performed, although his overdubbed simple guitar solo could have been improved upon. And, of course, the award goes to Ringo for "best knee slapping in a pop record. Although the acoustic arrangement The Beatles went for on "I'll Follow The Sun" gives the impression of it being inspired by the burgeoning folk music scene of the time, deeper examination shows this to be a false impression.
There are two credible interpretations of the lyrics to "I'll Follow The Sun. Their analyzation of the lyrics shows it to depict the singer leaving his girl for greener pastures. No reasons are given except that " tomorrow may rain ," which may symbolize the stormy trappings of attachment. He knows that the result of his departure is that he will " lose a friend " but, after all, " the time has come " for him to leave.
Someday, you'll know I was the one. And now the time has come, And so, my love, I must go. And though I loose a friend, In the end you will know. One day, you'll find That I have gone. Share lyrics. Premium Classics Fisherton Classic. Target i-Radio.
