"It was Pet Sounds that blew me out of the water. I love the album so much. I figure no one is educated musically ‘til they’ve heard that album. I love the orchestra, the arrangements; it may be going overboard to say it’s the classic of the century, but to me, it certainly is a total, classic record that is unbeatable in many ways. I’ve often played Pet Sounds and cried. I played it to John so much that it would be difficult for him to escape the influence, it was the record of the time. The thing that really made me sit up and take notice was the bass lines, and also, putting melodies in the bass line. That I think was probably the big influence that set me thinking when we recorded Pepper, it set me off on a period I had then for a couple of years of nearly always writing quite melodic bass lines. ‘God Only Knows’ is a big favorite of mine; very emotional, always a bit of a choker for me, that one. On ‘You Still Believe in Me’, I love that melody - that kills me, that’s my favorite, I think, it’s so beautiful right at the end, comes surging back in these multi-colored harmonies, sends shivers up my spine.” Paul McCartney
