On which Donovan song does Paul McCartney whisper in the background?
“Mellow Yellow” is a song written and recorded by Scottish singer-songwriter Donovan. It reached No. 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1966 and No. 8 in the UK in early 1967.
The record had a “Beatlesque” feel to it, and was sometimes mistaken for a Beatles song. Donovan, in fact, was friends with the Beatles.
Paul McCartney can be heard as one of the background revellers on this track, but contrary to popular belief, it is not McCartney whispering the “quite rightly” answering lines in the chorus, but rather Donovan himself.
