When I'm Sixty-Four: The song is sung by a young man to his lover, and is about his plans of growing old together with her. Although the theme is ageing, it was one of the first songs McCartney wrote, when he was 16. It was in the Beatles' setlist early on at the Cavern club, but was tucked away until Paul's father turned 64 according to George Martin (their legendary producer) when the Fab Four group was recording the album Sgt.

Fast forward to June 2017 the world is celebrating this event with a re-release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The boxed set has been remixed and presented with additional session recordings, and it is the first Beatles' album to be remixed and expanded since the 2003. To create the new stereo and 5.1 surround audio mixes for ‘Sgt. Pepper,’ producer Giles Martin (son of George) worked with audio restoration specialists at Abbey Road Studios in London. This Anniversary edition includes Martin’s new stereo mix incorporating the original four-track session tapes. Credit: The Beatles website.
