Probably mentioned already……

I’ve always felt Paul 100% meant what he was singing when he sang ‘Maybe I’m Amazed

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Absolutely one of the best love songs I’ve ever heard. Macca may have had a penchant for filling the world with Silly Love Songs, but he sure could write some outstanding non-silly love songs too. And I say this as a connoisseur of love songs.

I Will (debatable whether it’s silly or not), HT&E, Maybe I’m Amazed , Every Night , Calico Skies, Somedays, to name a few of my favourites…

Paul has updated his website. I went to the link I have been using for his lyrics, and got this…

Paul often gets talked about as the other side of the coin when it comes to John’s darker love songs. Paul is writing about happy relationships in a major key and is mostly positive. (This isn’t true, ie. Im Looking Through You, For No One , etc.)

Something I recently noticed is how And I Love Her and Ill Follow the Sun are the complete opposite of each other. And I Love Her is moody and dark. Mostly in minor, with images of the night sky, it has a feeling of mystery and conflict. But lyrically it is purely positive. “She gives me everything and tenderly” “A love like ours will never die” Its a brilliant song with a really cool contrast that also exists in Ill Follow the Sun. 

Ill Follow the Sun is in C major, with an upbeat picking pattern and a catchy hook. All the ingredients for a classic Paul love song full of positivity. But the lyrics are negative, pessimistic, and sad. They deal with a lack of commitment to a relationship, feeling like dark times are ahead and so its better to just leave it behind. The exact opposite of And I Love Her in terms of lyrical content, yet Ill Follow the Sun sounds so bright and happy, while And I Love Her does not at all.
