Live version so much better than the studio version (which was excellent too). Paul's best solo song.

This was a fave of mine in '75 when I was 9. Perfect pop, fits in with classics like Paperback Writer and Magical Mystery Tour.

Paul's tribute to John has him impersonating Lennon (quite effectively). He also borrows the lead guitar riff from 'Cold Turkey'. A tour de force.

A lovely uptempo ballad in which you can hear some references to John.' What opportunities did we allow to flow by - feeling like the timing wasn't quite right - what kind of magic might have worked if we had stayed calm - couldn't I have given you a better life.'
