Broccoli Fields Forever ...

Broccoli Fields Forever …

We Can Work It Out was recorded during the Rubber Soul sessions and released in December 1965 on the ground-breaking first ever “double A-sided” single. Apparently Paul wanted We Can Work It Out to be the A-side of a single with Day Tripper as the B-side. Shockingly, John disagreed, preferring the opposite (i.e. Day Tripper on A-side and We Can Work It Out on the B-side). Ah, but necessity is the mother of invention. And just like that the ingenious double A-Sided single was born. The first album We Can Work It Out appeared on was Yesterday And Today, which was released in June 1966 to the American market only.

We Can Work It Out was a collaboration of lyrics and music between McCartney and Lennon, which after their hits of 1963 had become an exceedingly rare occurrence (A Day In The Life was another brilliant example). Generally speaking, the more optimistic parts of We Can Work It Out were McCartney’s creation while the darker, impatient parts were Lennon’s contribution.

We Can Work It Out was wildly successful reaching number one on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and U.K. Singles Chart. We Can Work It Out also holds the distinction of having spawned the most commercially successful cover of a Beatles song when Stevie Wonder’s version reached number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and earned Mr. Wonder a Grammy Award nomination in 1972, for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.
