Paul McCartney wrote this song during a holiday in Greece. It spotlights the depression he suffered after the breakup of The Beatles and is a declaration of his love for Linda. McCartney recalled how the split of The Beatles affected him in Q Magazine December 2007: "You've gotta imagine having your 3 best mates suddenly be against you. And, yeah, I must admit, I hit the bottle, I hit substances. It was a very difficult period for me."
Paula from Laredo, TxIts a great song. The music and the words.
David from Youngstown, OhPaul plays all the instruments in this song. To me, it is one of his best. Believe me, momma.
Jim from Long Beach, CaWait Paul writing dark sons?, now he is John Lennon??...LOL..Great song.
Christy from Palm Springs, CaAfter getting on tbe "Beatle train" if you will (a train that, once you get on you will never get off let me tell you) I began to discover the pure amazingness of Paul's solo work. He is my favorite Beatle to this day (not that I don't adore the others because I do) and this song was one of the first of his that I fell in love with. I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH!!!!!
Steve from Salt Lake City, UtFor me, this song is where it all really started for Paul after the break-up. I knew when I heard it that I was going to like him for a long long time, and I did. It is very raw and unrefined like a lot of his early stuff but it is none the less a grerat song
Doug from Cambridge, OnYou can hear Paul playing an early version of this song on keyboards during the Let It Be sessions, Jan. '69.
