Paul McCartney wrote this song using the pseudonym Bernard Webb. He used this name to see if the public would like the song on its own merits, not knowing that the famous Beatle was behind it. The song was a modest hit, although not nearly as big as "A World Without Love
," which he also wrote for Peter & Gordon. Word did get out that McCartney wrote the song, and he knew his cover was blown when he saw a banner at one of their shows that said "Long Live Bernard Webb."
