“Hello, Goodbye” – The Beatles
Today’s song is dedicated to Dan Hurwit, who will sadly be leaving One Song Today to focus on a few other endeavours in his life!
Dan has brought great music to us all, but his write ups have been a true pleasure to read as well. Always spirited and hilarious, we will miss Dan’s weekly forays into his adventures with music. I await your guest submissions with baited breath Dan!
“Hello Goodbye” was released as a single in November 1967, and topped the charts in the United States, the United Kingdom, France and Norway. The song also was a number two hit in both Austria and Switzerland. The song was written entirely by Paul McCartney, even though the credit is to McCartney-Lennon.
I don’t have much to say about the song, I’m too sad about losing Dan. We’ll miss you homie!
