'Here, There, and Everywhere', written by Paul McCartney, from the 1966 Beatles album 'Revolver'. McCartney, who includes it among his personal favourites of all the songs he has written, cited Brian Wilson's 'God Only Knows' as his main source of inspiration. In 2000, Mojo ranked 'Here, There, and Everywhere' 4th in the magazine's list of the greatest songs of all time.
