the slightly naughty line in Back In The USSR , something that never, ever crossed my mind. (Maybe not that hard to figure out once you know there’s a naughty line in there.)

  

Okay, just reread the lyrics and I see it now.

I’m not sure if I’m more embarrassed about getting it now or missing it all these years.mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I have a question and it might be a rather silly one: There are two versions of boxsets out there, one with a green blank design and one with the Picture design:

I own the latter one. Is there a difference in content or is it just the design?!

It’s just a different design @KyleKartan. The green cover is for the North American market (and least) and the photograph cover is for the UK/European market (at least).

Why do I have no interest in this? I wonder if I would buy Lennon, The Lyrics?

I have little interest as I’ve heard most of the stories a thousand times before; Paul woke up and sang Scrambled eggs a thousand times to fix a hole. It gets boring hearing the same old things regurgitated. There was a feature on the BBC about it where they looked at 10(? songs) and I knew 90% of what was written before I had even opened it. Maybe their focus was wrong but why pay for that, especially when I struggle to read books as it is?

Same as with ‘Paul at the BBC’. Was looking forward to it but the focus was wrong for me (mostly Beatles covers) so why bother? I don’t care nowadays about seeing Paul sing ‘Lady Madonna ‘ in 2006 or whenever, I’d prefer to see him doing ‘Once Upon A Long Ago’ in 1987 as it’s far more rare a sight. If I want to see ‘LM’ I’ll watch the Beatles promo. There is so much out there but, certainly with Paul, we get the same old things redone in a different way. I haven’t watched it but what’s the bet on Paul telling us about how he wrote ‘Yesterday ‘ before it’s shown on that tv special?

Man (meaning humanity) has walked on the moon, brought the internet into existence and is now getting to see new Beatles footage from January 1969. Surely someone can think of a new question to ask Paul. {Quickly added. Which isn’t banal crap like ‘What type of toothpaste do you use before going on stage?’.}
