Nobody I Know is a song written by Paul McCartney (attributed to Lennon–McCartney) which Peter and Gordon recorded in an April 1964 Abbey Road Studio session: Peter and Gordon had had a UK/US #1 hit with the McCartney composition "A World Without Love" and McCartney wrote "Nobody I Know" with the specific intent of providing a follow-up hit for the duo. The track reached #10 UK and #12 US.[1][2]

A French rendering entitled "Partir, il nous faut" was recorded by Petula Clark and issued on a 1965 EP headed by her hit "Dans les temps".[3]
