“Hello, Goodbye” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles, written by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon–McCartney. Backed by John Lennon's “I Am the Walrus”, it was issued as a non-album single in November 1967, the group's first release since the death of their manager, Brian Epstein. The single was commercially successful around the world, topping charts in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and several other countries. McCartney later said that the lyrics take duality as their theme. The song originated when, in response to a question from Beatles aide Alistair Taylor about songwriting, McCartney sat down at a harmonium and asked Taylor to say the opposite of whatever he said. The completed song includes a musical coda, which was improvised by the Beatles when they were recording the track in October 1967. Unimpressed with the composition, Lennon pushed for “I Am the Walrus” to be the single's A-side, but McCartney and the band's producer, George Martin, opted for the more commercial-sounding “Hello, Goodbye”. The Beatles produced three promotional films for the song, one of which was shown on The Ed Sullivan Show in America. Due to the regulations against lip-syncing on British television, none of the clips were aired there. “Hello, Goodbye” has traditionally received a varied response from music critics. While some reviewers praise the song for its classic pop qualities, others deem it unadventurous by the Beatles' standards, and inconsequential. The track was included on the expanded US release of the Magical Mystery Tour soundtrack EP, and later appeared on compilation albums such as 1967–1970 and 1. McCartney has often performed “Hello, Goodbye” in concert, beginning with his Driving World Tour in 2002. James Last, Bud Shank, Allen Toussaint, the Cure and the cast of Glee are among the acts who have also recorded the song.

James Last, the Hollyridge Strings, Bud Shank and the Soulful Strings were all among the artists who covered “Hello, Goodbye” in the year following its release in 1967. Allen Toussaint, with whom McCartney worked briefly on his and Wings' 1975 album Venus and Mars, released a version of the song in 1989. More recent covers include recordings by Dwight Twilley and the band Ash, and a novelty version by Looney Tunes characters credited to “Bugs & Friends”. The cast of the US television show Glee released a recording of “Hello, Goodbye” as the opening track of their 2010 album Glee: The Music, Volume 3 Showstoppers. This version became a hit when issued as a single. In 2014, the Cure recorded the song with McCartney's son James, for inclusion on the multi-artist compilation The Art of McCartney. Classic Rock magazine described it as “Sufficiently clattery and 'Love Cats'-ish to escape comparisons with the original”. Evanescence's co-founder and lead vocalist Amy Lee included a cover of “Hello, Goodbye” on her 2016 children's album “Dream Too Much”, released exclusively on Amazon Music. McCartney has performed “Hello, Goodbye” on many of his tours as a solo artist. These include 2002's Driving World Tour and 2003's Back in the World Tour, when he opened his concerts with the song, and the On the Run Tour in 2011–12. In addition, throughout his 1989–90 world tour, McCartney segued the coda onto the end of “Put It There”. This medley was included on McCartney's 1990 triple album Tripping the Live Fantastic, while a full live rendition of “Hello, Goodbye” appeared on Back in the U.S. in 2002.
