Feet in the Clouds

Album: Memory Almost Full (2007)
  • This song is about Paul McCartney's schooldays. He told the Mail on Sunday May 12, 2008 about it: "Because of the retrospective mood of this medley, it then goes back to school and teachers. I had a real motley bunch of teachers at the Liverpool Institute High School for Boys. Some of them were complete maniacs. Whereas I wrote about golden summers in 'You Tell Me,' school was very dark and gloomy. The building itself wasn't the lightest of places - it was built in 1825. This seemed to affect the attitude of the teachers. They were a dark bunch of people. So the song is like a therapy session for me."

  • Christy from Palm Springs, CaHmmmmm. Reminds me of how I feel in school pretty much all the time. That is why I love this guy's music so much. I can relate to so much of it. I think that is why he has touched so many people. His songs are just so relatable. Even the ones that don't make any sense. You just put your imagination into those and they can mean whatever you want them to.
