This song is a great example of Paul McCartney's songwriting acumen. Seth Swirsky
, who wrote the songs "Tell It To My Heart
" and "Love Is a Beautiful Thing
" and produced the Beatles documentary Beatles Stories
, explained: "He could do so many things, and he could do things that are hard to quantify. Some people might say, 'Well, I like Hall and Oates as songwriters,' let's just say. But they do that 8th note thing where they're just banging on the piano, like 'Kiss On My List,' so you could kind of copy their sound a little bit, or copy their style of writing. Very hard to copy McCartney, because you just don't come out with 'Martha My Dear,' where it changes keys in the middle of it."
