Chris Thomas on "Birthday"

"I said to Paul one Monday, after things had been going quite well, 'The Girl Can't Help It is on TV Wednesday night and I've never seen it.' He said, 'Really? Oh, great. Maybe we should go and see it. We can all go around to my place and watch it.' He came that Wednesday for the song, which was actually 'Birthday.' Everybody rolled up at about 5:00 p.m. I think we got the backing track down by about half past eight, when it was time to whiz around to watch the film. We watched the film, came back, did the vocal on 'Birthday,' and finished it off. We did the whole thing in 12 hours, plus watching the telly."
