Something I feel is honestly a nice confession (if you can class it one) for me to make - and it's Beatley a-hard-days-night-paul-7 Although part of me is afraid now I've publicly posted about it that it might lose that magic or it's simply a phase and I'll probably sound like some cringe-worthy rambling nut, for the most part I feel happy to want to share it and have strong doubt the former two of those three things are possible.

So over the past few months, McCartney has become my favourite Paul album, but certain tracks (That Would Be Something , Every Night , Junk, Man We Was Lonely and obviously Maybe I'm Amazed - basically half the album lol ahdn_paul_06) seem to have really both struck me and stuck with me on some kind of unique personal level. Every now and then, I like putting these songs on and going into a world of my own while I'm staring out the window, thinking about the quaint future I want and it's always gives me this longing but beautiful feeling, it's almost like a natural high. The only other music I can think of close to doing this kind of thing to me is probably Pet Sounds. Idk what else to write or make of this, but there it is. And now I'm in lockdown it'll probably happen more often.ahdn_paul_02ahdn_george_01

Totally understandable, @SgtPeppersBulldog. I like a bit of McCartney myself for a nice domestic daydream about a nice little cottage somewhere pastoral with cats and chickens and a farmhouse sink, though not just that album specifically.

I confess I was trying to cover "Ocean Eyes" by Billie Eilish earlier... AND IT WAS HAAARD a-hard-days-night-paul-7

BRUH. I don't sing that high, like, ever... not since I was 13 in my Sound of Music obsessive phase... it's technically within my range but that part is sooooo rusty... ouch!

That happened to me 2 days ago. I thought I had a much higher range than I did and I was really struggling with a G# - a once easy note. I was really worried.

But yesterday I sang the phrase (which an A) with absolute ease so my worries eased. Give it a day or two of practice and you'll be fine!

Yeah, the solo albums of every Beatle in 1970 were melancholic yet hard-hitting, the Beatles had just broken up! So in response you get all this beautiful mix of creative freedom yet reminiscence of the past. To me it beats Pet Sounds (Pet Sounds was still amazing tho). And of course it is a fantastic natural high, McCartney is a fantastic album to get high to as wella-hard-days-night-george-10a-hard-days-night-george-10

If I were to rank them, Plastic Ono Band and All Things Must Pass would probably still overcome McCartney, but that trilogy of albums is just chillingly beautiful, each one in its own special way.

McCartney carries so much emotional baggage with it and that's what makes it so special and cathartic for me. Paul made this album for himself  (with Linda's ever-present love and support) and that's what makes it such a raw and special experience to listen to it. He made it for himself in order to get out of the harsh depression that he fell into after his world fell apart when the Beatles broke up, to get rid of all the tangled-up, messy feelings of worthlessness that plagued him. I can feel those emotions when I listen to each track, and that's what makes this album so so special. It's something personal that Paul poured himself into, and I feel honored to just listen to that-- that's the kind of high I feel, the high of getting close to someone through space and time and soul just by listening to the music they created up on a farm in Scotland.

I like to take a hard look at each post-breakup solo album that the boys did, because each paints a clear, raw portrait on each one's feelings and psychology during this time period. It's so interesting, looking at these four boys grow up into different people through the looking-glass of music alone. It's beautiful, even, in a way.....

To stay on topic: I confess that I don't regret the Beatles breaking up at all. Does it make me sad? Very much so, but not angry. Not resentful (I mean I do despise Allen Klein but......). It was messy and negative, but it was meant to happen. Without it, we wouldn't have the wonderful 1970 solo albums and most importantly-- the boys wouldn't have been able to grow, on a personal and artistic level. It was really in their best interest in the end, I think.......

Anyhoo, it's 2 am, so I think I'm done rambling for now and will actually go to bed.....john-lennon-salute_gif

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 How could we regret it when we got so much good music out of it? a-hard-days-night-john-6 Seriously, you're right, it had to happen; my only regret would be that it was so acrimonious, I wish it had been less heart-wrenching for all involved, but maybe there was no other way?

Now, if you said you preferred Eric Clapton or Lou Reed to George, I might become upset. But all the Wilburys deserve love and respect.

Seeing as today marks its 50th anniversary (I'm not ruining the main album thread with my personal ramblings, but maybe I'll post about some other things related to the album in that thread later) I thought I'd give an update on my attachment to the songs on McCartney.

I'm happy to say that two weeks on talking about it and after a couple more occasions of losing myself in it since, it hasn't lost any personal magic and I've come to feel certain the album will continue to stick with me on a special level throughout my life. To come to a summary, I think I'm just making a big fuss over my feelings with these posts.ahdn_paul_06 It has that similar effect of closeness on most people, but I've probably listened those songs and absorbed them over and over more than the average listener would.

Don't think I won't be doing a full listen through today, though! a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Here's my confession. My time here is up. I joined these forums a while ago now and as great as it is, I found I wasn't particularly active as the months went on. The Beatles have and will always be my favourite band but I feel much happier somewhere else and that somewhere is the place I feel most at home. I would like everyone to know that I am a brony and have been since almost exactly this time last year. The Beatles have changed my life but My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic has saved it. If you'd like to know exactly why, look at the link below.

I am much happier at the place where I belong and that is with Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie. 'In my life, I love them all.' I feel that I have finally found what I needed in my life after years of soul-searching and coming to terms with what the world around me was doing. My dream here is over but my dream on the MLP Forums has just begun. Farewell, everyone. You can now find me here:

I am in the opinion that "McCartney" represents Paul at his most downtrodden and beaten. This is the work of a man who is fueled by sheer anguish and pain due to the Beatles breaking up, the most important thing (other than Linda, as far as I can tell) to happen to him at this point. The album is one of the most raw, production-wise, which makes sense due to him recording most of the tracks in his Scottish farmyard. It's painful to listen to, because it feels incredibly personal at times.

Being a bit of a sadist myself, I enjoy it quite a bit.
