Penny Lane

Penny Lane” was written primarily by Paul McCartney but credited to the Lennon–McCartney songwriting partnership. The lyrics refer to a real street in Liverpool, England.

Recorded during the Sgt. Pepper album sessions, and intended for inclusion, “Penny Lane” was released in February 1967 as one side of a double A-sided single, along with “Strawberry Fields Forever”, following pressure from EMI, the Beatles record company, after several months absence of new material. The song made its LP debut on the US version of the band’s album, Magical Mystery Tour.

In my opinion, this is one of the Beatles’ best songs from a music perspective. It has some very interesting chord changes as well as changes of key. This makes it very suitable for an instrumental rendering.
