For No One
The Beatles
Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney; released on the album "Revolver".

"For No One" is a very fine example of baroque pop, even if it's not as 
widely known as "Yesterday", "Eleanor Rigby" or "Penny Lane". Composed 
entirely by Paul McCartney, it features only two members of the group (Paul 
and Ringo).
The song's strong baroque feel is strengthened by the prominent usage of a 
clavichord and a French horn, the latter played by professional musician Alan 
Civil. Paul's lead vocal was recorded on a slower speed and lower key than 
heard on the record, to produce a "thinner" voice, just like in "Here, There, 
And Everywhere", but to a much lesser extent, hence the unusual key (B) of 
the song. Ringo uses brushes for drumming, and the percussion is hard to hear 
in most of the recording, except for the prominent use of a tambourine in the 
bridges.
The lyrics may be among the saddest ever by the Beatles.
