I've Got A Feeling

AUTHORSHIP Lennon (.5) and McCartney (.5)
Just as Paul had an inclusion in the middle of "A Day In The Life", so John had one in the middle of Paul's "I've Got A Feeling". John's part - the "Everybody had a . . ." section - was a quite separately written song fragment, but it had the same tempo and was so well matched that they were able to link them together. John brought his section round to Cavendish Avenue and they finished the song together as an equal 50-50 collaboration. There is a myth that by point in their career, Paul and John were no longer working together; it is true that they no longer got together as they used to for songwriting sessions, but they were certainly very supportive of each other's songs and still checked them with each other. "I've Got A Feeling is a good example of their continuing partnership. Paul McCartney: Many Years from Now
