At EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London, the Beatles began recording the Paul McCartney composition “Paperback Writer,” which they completed the following day. McCartney is said to have written it after his aunt asked if he could come up with a song that wasn’t about love. The lyrics are in the form of a letter from an aspiring author addressed to a publisher. The track is also notable because of its boosted bass guitar, which occurred partly in response to John Lennon demanding to know why the bass on a Wilson Pickett record far exceeded the bass on any Beatles record.
