  • My favorite Paul McCartney song is:

    The Long And Winding Road (Paul McCartney version)

    The long and winding road that leads to your door
    Will never disappear I've seen that road before
    It alway leads me here
    Lead me to your door

    The wild and windy night that the rain washed away
    Has left a pool of tears crying for the day
    Why leave me standing here
    Let me know the way

    Many times I've been alone, and many times I've cried
    Anyway, you'll never know, the many ways I've tried

    But still they lead me back to the long and winding road
    You left me standing here a long long time ago
    Don't leave me waiting here (don't leave me waiting)
    Lead me to your, door.

    I wrote a story once about this song and had it published. It had to do with returning to my  home after 10 years. Now nearly 10 years since I wrote that piece, I no longer live on my family farm, but I do still live in my hometown. It has truly been a long and winding road that has taken me here. Many tears and many years of trying, always feeling like I'm being led to the door, but not allowed in. I love many of Paul McCartney's songs, but this one is probably my favorite because I so relate to it.

  • I have to go with "Blackbird," his best contribution to "The White Album."  It is short, simple, and to the point.  "Take these broken wings, and learn to fly."  I get the feeling that he is talking to me with those lyrics.

    But all of course have our broken wings.  None of us are perfect.  But all of us need to learn to fly.  

  • Yesterday, it reminds me of how quickly things can change.

  • The Ballad Of I Was Great For Five Years In The Sixties But Then I Became A Self Satisfied Twat.

  • Blackbird. It's just so pretty. :]
  • "Let 'Em In." Catchy to the utmost. :)


  • Definitely have to be Hey Jude. It's my most favorite Beatles song and it was written by Paul McCartney in order to comfort John Lennon's son during his parents' divorce.
