Wanderlust Report Abuse
From 'Tug of War.' Reputely about a bust on Paul's yacht by authorities. The melody is one of his strongest in years, though it doesn't quite suit the subject matter. Great production by George Martin.

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.
