This song is about John, and I'm always curious, what does he want to say with "What about the night we cried?" I guess it's when John lost his Mom… but I'd like to know. Has Paul said what he means with that line?

I remember reading a quote about that. It was when they were on tour, and they got really drunk one night, (I think to the point they were taking turns in worship of the porcelain god, but I'm not sure) and they were laughing and crying, talking about how great the other was – basically the kind of things they could never say as sober, Northern men.

Edit: Found it! Nothing wrong with my memory.

“We were in Key West in 1964. We were due to fly into
Jacksonville, in Florida, and do a concert there, but we’d been diverted
because of a hurricane. We stayed there for a couple of days, not
knowing what to do except, like, drink. I remember drinking way too
much, and having one of those talking-to-the-toilet bowl evenings. It
was during that night, when we’d all stayed up way too late, and we got
so pissed that we ended up crying – about, you know, how wonderful we
were, and how much we loved each other, even though we’d never said
anything. It was a good one: you never say anything like that.
Especially if you’re a Northern Man.”

Thank you skye!! And yes it's quite funny indeed!!! Actually if you see in the Good Evening New York City video, the song gets him and he gets kind of pissed off for that and hits the guitar at the end quite hard. i mean, not pissed of "I screw it up" but kind of angry when you let something to get you. But it's hard. When I saw the video that part truly got me. a-hard-days-night-paul-5

This song is very touching indeed. I hate it when people say that Paul McCartney truly did die. Only the true Paul would know to write a song like this.

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

Personally, give me All Those Years Ago all the time over Here Today.

I didn't remember I started this topic. Well I put it here because it's a McCartney's song.
