Run For Your Life has the worst beatle lyrics ever, PS I Love You has some bad lyrics too, I've never been very fond of Hold Me Tight lyrics also...but Yellow Submarine...argh!...really silly lyrics, I know it's a childish song but it stills annoy me very much! Oh! And Yes! I forgot about "Lovely Rita" which has a fantastic melody but has some horrible lyrics in my opinion.

I love The Word, but...

Also, agreed on Run For Your Life and PS I Love You

Couldn't think of anywhere else to put this, and it's hard to qualify as "news":

Paul McCartney On The Top 10 Worst Rock Lyricists of All-Time List?

And in the  ARE YOU KIDDING ME category! Yahoo Music compiled a list of the Top 10 Worst Rock Lyricists of All-Time and Paul McCartney is at number-10. WHAT!

Writer Rob O’Connor argues, “McCartney chooses to be lousy. He’s smart enough to write something decent. But he’s lazy like a pothead.” As evidence, he cites “Live And Let Die” (“In this ever-changing world in which we live in”) and says “Sometimes you get so rich the rules of decent grammar never apply.”

More at the link. Just sounds like another list meant to stir controversy.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

To be fair, most of his lyrics from McCartney II to Off The Ground are pretty bad. Most of the music isn't great either to be honest. I prefer to forget about that period.

Very true (though I was actually referring to everything between and including those two albums, so McCartney II, Pipe of Peace, Press To Play, Flowers In The Dirtand Off The Ground). He also has a few clunkers on his Wings albums and McCartney. Fortunately everything (with minor exceptions) since Flaming Pie has been pretty great. Certainly nothing as bad as "Biker Like An Icon". He definitely isn't a top 10 worst lyricist though.

'Biker Like An Icon' is definitely one of the worst songs Paul has wrote but i can't say i'm that in awed of a lot of what Paul has wrote in years. Nothing in 'New' (that album title really does my head in - i detest it) hit me as memorable (i'm one of the few who didn't do cartwheels when first hearing it after proclaiming it his best work since 'In Spite Of All The Danger') and i can say the same for most of his post-Flaming Pie material (and after recently listening to 'Flaming Pie' even that album has went down in my estimations). I try to get into it but i really do struggle. 'Memory Almost Full' is a horrible album tho nothing reeks more than 'Driving Rain'.

Couple of points on that. 1. I love New. It may be his best solo album, though not really because of the lyrics. I also really like Memory Almost Full, though again, the lyrics are ok, but not great. Chaos and Creation, though, has some absolutely fantastic lyrics, as well as some great music, though it's not quite as musically strong as New. I do agree that Driving Rain is incredibly mediocre.
