Dancing About Architecture reveals how J&P's very first song, "Love Me Do," showcased from the start their individual songwriting fingerprints; how John contributed to the quintessential Paulson, "Yesterday"; what makes a Johnsong a Johnsong and a Paulsong a Paulsong; and, among other things, what such different songs as "She Said She Said" and "Good Day Sunshine" have in common, or "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "She's Leaving Home," or "Martha My Dear" and "I'm So Tired" and "Sexy Sadie."
