Random fact about song
Vanilla Fudge covered this in a slowed-down, emotional style. They've done this with many songs, including hits by 'N Sync, and The Backstreet Boys. Their version of "You Keep Me Hangin' On" was a #6 US hit in 1968. Says Fudge drummer Carmine Appice: "Most of the songs we did, we tried to take out of the realm they were in and try to put them where they were supposed to be in our eyes. 'Eleanor Rigby' was always a great song by The Beatles. It was done with the orchestra, but the way we did it, we put it into an eerie graveyard setting and made it spooky, the way the lyrics read. Songs like Ticket To Ride, that's a hurtin' song, so we slowed it down so it wouldn't be so happy. We would look at lyrics and the lyrics would dictate if it was feasible to do something with it or not." (Thanks to Carmine for speaking with us about this song. His website is carmineappice.net.)

Eleanor Rigby lyrics:


Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice
in the church
where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window,
wearing the face
that she keeps
in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Father McKenzie writing the words
of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near.
Look at him working,
darning his socks in the night
when there's nobody there
What does he care?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby died in the church
and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father McKenzie
wiping the dirt
from his hands
as he walks
from the grave
No one was saved

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

    I always thought they were saying "lovely people", not "lonely people." Now this song makes much more sense!

    all the lonely people, where do they all come from? all the lonely people, where do they all belong?
