Though the recording sounds like a band, it's all McCartney. The recording started on piano,
followed by drums, and then bass and guitars. The drums featured a Violet Design Flamingo mic
capturing room sound, which was compressed. "I just crushed it and kept moving it around until
I was getting the air I wanted in a room mic while he was warming up. And that sound has a lot to
do with the sound of the mic," Kahne says. "Also, the take wasn't coming together, and we redid it,
and did it, and did it, and it wasn't working. It got a little tense, and then the next take he got it.
But he started goofing around, and he started yelling while he was playing, and that yelling is still
a really cool part of the song."
