"You could almost be forgiven for thinking ‘Good Night’ was mine, because it’s so soft and melodic and so un-John. I believe John wrote this as a lullaby for Julian, and it was a very beautiful song that Ringo ended up singing to the accompaniment of a big string orchestra. I think John felt it might not be good for his image for him to sing it but it was fabulous to hear him do it, he sang it great. We heard him sing it in order to teach it to Ringo and he sang it very tenderly. John rarely showed his tender side, but my key memories of John are when he was tender, that’s what has remained with me; those moments where he showed himself to be a very generous, loving person. I always cite that song as an example of the John beneath the surface that we only saw occasionally. I think that was what made us love John, otherwise he could be unbearable and he could be quite cruel. Now that I’m older, I realise that his hostility was a cover-up for the vulnerability that he felt, and if you look at his family history it’s easy to see why. But this is an example of that tender side. I don’t think John’s version was ever recorded." - Paul McCartney
