A meditation on loneliness in which a priest buries an unloved woman, "Eleanor Rigby" features a pair of string quartets, arranged by producer George Martin. The Beatles don't actually play a single note on the recording, although John Lennon and George Harrison do provide harmonies for Paul McCartney's lead vocal. McCartney claimed that Eleanor Rigby's fictional name came from an amalgamation of the actress Eleanor Bron (Help!) and a commercial sign for Rigby & Evans Ltd. In the 1980s, a gravestone belonging to an actual Eleanor Rigby was discovered just a stone's throw from where McCartney and Lennon first met. "It was either complete coincidence," said McCartney, "or in my subconscious."
