In another pointless interview to keep himself in the news, Sir Paul McCartney today revealed his favourite ten songs.
Pausing merely to make his lawyer another cup of tea, he said: 'I'm only talking now to make this article long enough, you know? OK, here's the top ten songs in my record collection:
- 'Get Back To 1965, Everyone', The Beatles.
- 'The Ballad Of John And That Awful Japanese Woman', The Beatles.
- 'Michelle, Let's Get A Divorce', The Beatles.
- 'Let It Be A Legal Matter', The Beatles.
- 'Mull Of Kintyre With No Heather', Wings
- 'I Don't Want To Hold Your Hand, Clear Off, We're Through', The Beatles.
- 'D-I-V-O-R-C-E Papers', Tammy Wynette.
- 'It's Liverpool Town For Me, In Case I Haven't Mentioned It Before', The Dubliners.
- 'Meat Is Murder, Like Listening To My Songs Is Murder', The Smiths.
- 'It's Yesterday Once More, I Wish!', The Carpenters.
Later this year, Sir Paul intends to open a Beatles' museum in Penny Lane, and the first exhibit will be Ringo Starr. 'Penny Lane is better than Strawberry Fields', McCartney claimed, 'and I'm the only person in the world who thinks so.' George Martin is 312 next month.
