Hello Goodbye - Hello, Goodbye - Netflix

“Hello, Goodbye” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles, written by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon–McCartney. Backed by John Lennon's “I Am the Walrus”, it was issued as a non-album single in November 1967, the group's first release since the death of their manager, Brian Epstein. The single was commercially successful around the world, topping charts in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and several other countries. McCartney later said that the lyrics take duality as their theme. The song originated when, in response to a question from Beatles aide Alistair Taylor about songwriting, McCartney sat down at a harmonium and asked Taylor to say the opposite of whatever he said. The completed song includes a musical coda, which was improvised by the Beatles when they were recording the track in October 1967. Unimpressed with the composition, Lennon pushed for “I Am the Walrus” to be the single's A-side, but McCartney and the band's producer, George Martin, opted for the more commercial-sounding “Hello, Goodbye”. The Beatles produced three promotional films for the song, one of which was shown on The Ed Sullivan Show in America. Due to the regulations against lip-syncing on British television, none of the clips were aired there. “Hello, Goodbye” has traditionally received a varied response from music critics. While some reviewers praise the song for its classic pop qualities, others deem it unadventurous by the Beatles' standards, and inconsequential. The track was included on the expanded US release of the Magical Mystery Tour soundtrack EP, and later appeared on compilation albums such as 1967–1970 and 1. McCartney has often performed “Hello, Goodbye” in concert, beginning with his Driving World Tour in 2002. James Last, Bud Shank, Allen Toussaint, the Cure and the cast of Glee are among the acts who have also recorded the song.

“Hello Goodbye” is in the key of C major and in 4/4 time. MacDonald describes the musical structure as “characteristically scalar” and founded on “a descending sequence in C”, with “a brief touchdown on A flat as its only surprise”. Musicologist Walter Everett writes that the bassline in the chorus is an inverted form of the descending scale, which is accentuated on the Beatles' recording by the lead guitar part. In Everett's estimation, much of “Hello, Goodbye” references previous Lennon–McCartney compositions: over the verses, the parallel thirds in the vocal recall the band's unreleased song “Love of the Loved”, among others; melodically, the chorus is similar to the keyboard part on “For No One”; and the complementary vocal parts in the final verse recall “Help!” Everett also suggests that, early in “Hello, Goodbye”, McCartney appears to be imitating the V–VI chord “ambivalence” of “Strawberry Fields Forever”. Everett describes the composition as “derivative McCartney”, for the most part, “freshened up” primarily through the use of phrase lengths that deviate from a standard eight bars. Consistent with the song title, the lyrics comprise a series of antonyms – such as yes–no, black–white and stay–go. With the narrative perspective alternating between first and second person, the composition also recalls George and Ira Gershwin's “Let's Call the Whole Thing Off”. Following the third chorus, at 2:36 on the released recording, the bassline descends chromatically to mark the start of what musicologist Alan Pollack terms the “first outro” and Everett calls a “codetta”. After this false ending, the song returns with a 45-second coda, which MacDonald identifies as a “Maori finale – a mistake for 'Hawaiian' (aloha)”. The coda consists of a repeated musical phrase over a pedal point in C major, accompanied by the vocal refrain “Helaheba-hello-a”.
