Paul McCartney reveals his favorite Beatles song

Paul McCartney is currently promoting his new album “McCartney III” and in an interview with Apple Music he revealed his favorite Beatles song and explained the reason why he likes the track.


Paul McCartney reveals his favorite Beatles song:

“I always say, ‘You Know My Name (Look Up the Number),’ which is a zany, zany little B-side that nobody knows, but we had such fun making it,” he said. “It’s like a little comedy record. And I just remember the joy of making it. … But there’s a lot of songs that I love of the Beatles. I think ‘Strawberry Fields’ is a great song; I think ‘Hey Jude’ worked out great. I’ve got a lot of favorite songs. ‘Blackbird’ I love. ‘Eleanor Rigby’ I love.”

About the Beatles song that he’s listened to the most, McCartney said: “I would say probably ‘Let It Be’ … It’s the most ubiquitous. It sort of got everywhere. Ubiquitous from the Latin, ubi quo, meaning everywhere.”

Paul McCartney released his new album “McCartney III”. The musician recorded the album all alone during quarantine, playing all the instruments. The record is a “sequel” to McCartney and McCartney II, created only by the 78-year-old musician at critical moments in his life, in the 1970s and 1980s, when he was looking for a creative renaissance.

“I was living lockdown life on my farm with my family and I would go to my studio every day. So i had to do a little bit of work on some film music and that turned into the opening track. Then when it was done, I thought, What will I do next? I had some stuff I’d worked on over the years. But sometimes time would run out and it would be left half-finished. So I started thinking about what I had.”

“Each day I’d start recording with the instrument I wrote the song on and then gradually layer it all up. It was a lot of fun. It was about making music for yourself rather than making music that has to do a job. So, I just did stuff I fancied doing. I had no idea this would end up as an album.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
