I think of Pam as young and Mustard as old and their dad had a child with another wife when Mustard was 30

I was thinking something like that could be possible…

So it wasn't his sister originally, but is definitely now?

I guess she is who we want her to be. John left it open for us.

You can see the progression because in the Anthology Mean Mr Mustard's sister is Shirley. I think he changed it to fit in the medley. Maybe Paul said he should? Seems like a Paul thing to do.

Has anyone tried Googling this Mustard guy, to see how old he really is? He can't be that hard to find. Let's see, he sleeps in a hole in the road; that means he could very well live in Blackburn, Lancashire. There are ten thousand holes there, and a few parks, so that narrows our search somewhat. Pam's shop might be located just off the park, so she can keep an eye on her eccentric older brother. And Pam must be fairly young, because she's the "kind of a girl that makes the "News of The World." And surely the "News Of The World" has to compete with the Page 3 models of the Sun. Although, probably none of the Page 3 girls have ever posed in jackboots, a kilt and a polythene bag. That's an unforgettable get-up, so somebody must be familiar with this brother/sister act.

When I heard this in "All Too Much"

Everywhere it's what you make for us to take

My mind jumped to "The End"

And in the end the love you take / Is equal to the love you make

I guess "The Beatles" were just too much for John, Paul, George, and Ringo (collectively) to take.

This is a cool cross-reference that I never noticed before. And I think it goes to show that even George's "lesser" songs had good things about them. I don't know what the deal was; did John and Paul not want to help polish George's tunes, or did George not want any songwriting suggestions? And by the time of the Abbey Road medley, did Paul know he was sort-of borrowing George's line for "The End," or did he not even pay enough attention to the recording session of "It's All Too Much?"

I'd guess it's a coincidence – I don't really see the connection apart from the take/make rhyme. But who knows?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney
