I Couldn't Take My Eyes Off You
What does she think of the song? “I’m very pleased with it. It’s not an out and out ballad and I’m pleased that everybody likes it. It’s very important to me that my friends like it and that it gets good reviews. I like pleasing my friends“.
She tells how Paul came to write the song. “We had decided on a typical type opener for the show. Ringo was coming on and Paul said he would like to write a song for Ringo and I to sing but Paul’s Dad had already thought of a song we could do. So Paul asked if he could write a signature tune. Everybody thought he was daft when he came up with ‘Step Inside Love’. They all said: ‘You can’t open and close a TV show with a quiet number.’” The song’s success has proved Paul right.
Although the number was never intended as a single, it has been released now due to the fantastic demand from viewers. And it may surprise you to know that up to a few weeks ago “Step Inside Love” consisted of only the beginning and end parts heard in the series. Says Cilla: “It was only when we started getting these letters that I said: ‘How about a middle part?’ So Paul wrote it just before he went away.“From New Musical Express, March 23, 1968
