I'm still jamming tunes from the Fab Four in the 80s. I wanted to jam the title track off "Tug of War" but couldn't find it. I think this is a fine substitute. I'm a big fan of this album, even with the cloying "Ebony and Ivory", and I believe George Martin is to thank for this record's successful sound.   3

"I was kind of crying when I wrote it. It's like a dialogue with John. One of my feelings even when he used to lay into me was that he really didn't mean it. I could always see why he was doing it. There was this spectrum of me, which I understand because he had to clear the decks just like I did. In the song, John would hear me saying that and say, 'Oh, piss off! You don't know me at all. We're worlds apart. You used to know me but I've changed.' But I feel that I still knew him. The song is me trying to talk back to him, but realising the futility of it because he is no longer here, even though that's a fact I can't quite believe, even to this day. The 'I love you' part was hard to say. A part of me said, 'Hold on. Wait a minute. Are you really going to do that?' I finally said, 'Yeah, I've got to. It's true.'" Paul McCartney   4
