For McCartney fans out there, I believe this orchestral extension to Eleanor Rigby, entitled Eleanor's Dream, is Paul's first halfway-serious foray into classical expression (I mean, beyond the use of classical instruments the Beatles always employed).
Eleanor Rigby/Eleanor's Dream is essential for all real McCartney fans, because it marks the point when he stops being a pop icon and ex-Beatle and starts being Sir Paul, the composer.

But in "Eleanor Rigby," Coupland aims not at any cultural distinction, but at the overriding plague of loneliness.
Don't think that means "Rigby" is a downer - Coupland's style is fast and loose, and zany is what he does.
Eventually, "Eleanor Rigby" falls to a depth of being cringingly embarrassing.

 Bookslut | Eleanor Rigby by Douglas Coupland
Even though Eleanor Rigby has the same form as Coupland's previous works -- quirky, flawed narrator in or from the Pacific Northwest searches for God despite or because of a nutty family -- the substance of the novel isn't up to par.
A multiple sclerosis patient has supernatural visions and helps tough but lonely Liz Dunn, the eponymous Eleanor Rigby, get over her deathwish.
But instead of another Microserfs, Eleanor Rigby is just itself, Douglas Coupland's ninth novel, a lightly chewy story about crazy lines of fate.

The double tracking is not brought down fast enough after the end of the second "Ahhh, look at all the lonely people" in the introduction.
It continues until the second syllable of "Eleanor." The bad mixing of the double tracking continues throughout the rest of the song, every time there is a transition from single to double or vice versa.
