I really like the track Silent Homecoming from Ringo's Beaucoup of Blues album:

The lyrics are quite sad, but whilst listening to it yesterday on Spotify, it occurred to me that the song could perhaps serve as a prequel to the events of Teddy Boy which features the lyrics:

She told him tales about his soldier dad
But it made her sad, then she'd cry, oh my

Had the Beatles stayed together in some alternate universe and included these two songs on their next release, it could've been the start of a really interesting concept album.

We had Rain in 1966. Then, in 2001, we had Driving Rain . By 2005, Paul declared there's Too Much Rain . I guess he got tired of Fixing A Hole where the rain gets in. And there's the problem that his sheepdog kept standing in the rain and tracked water and mud into the house. Add to that, he kept getting tan in the English rain. And, finally to top it off, the banker never would wear a mac in the pouring rain even when Paul offered him a raincoat that he wore in the song Two of Us.

He doesn't mention how much of that precipitation was silver rain falling down upon the dirty ground of London Town .

Brilliant, @Ahhh Girl john-lennon-salute_gif although it would've been John getting a tan in the English rain, no?

^ I think John meant that anyone could get a tan standing in the English rain. John started the Rain falling in '66. That's my explanation anyway. ahdn_paul_02

I heard a Paul song about a week or so ago that had lyrics that matched 'My Love'

And when the cupboard's bare
I'll still find something there with my love
It's understood
It's everywhere with my love 

'Nobody Knows' has similar 

I may go hungry, maybe next week 
Well if I do then I'll still find something to eat 

but it was a different track, possibly 70's, and for the life of me, I cannot remember which it was.

Heath said

Good Day Sunshine

"Then we lie, beneath a shady tree"

Tomorrow

"Find a shady spot beneath the trees"

From that same Wings song, "And run your pretty fingers thro' my hair" goes well with "running my hands through her hair" from Here, There And Everywhere . Let's hope the hair isn't a tangled Beretta. LOL

Let's do a triple using Tomorrow. Paul pleaded "don't you let me down tomorrow" while John just pleaded "Don't let me down".  

On Joe's page for Hey Jude , John thinks Paul wrote Hey Jude (ie Hey John) about him. In that song we have Paul using the phrase "don't let me down". Maybe John was writing/singing back to Paul when he did the song Don't Let Me Down .a-hard-days-night-ringo-7 I think the theory works on some level.

The way Paul sings the words "love of mine" in I Don't Know sounds just like the way he sings those very words in My Valentine .

Yes!!! Totally.

The song also reminds me of "Scared" - the last song on NEW.

Meet you in the falling rain... (from Paul's song That Would Be Something )
Go for a ride in the driving rain...

Paul doesn't run and hide his head when it rains.

Norwegian Wood :

She showed me her room
Isn't it good
Norwegian Wood

I'm Losing You :

Here in some stranger's room
Late in the afternoon*
What am I doing here at all?

*which would make sense, as John and the girl 'talked until two' (2AM)

Paul's Only Love Remains

And if you take your love away from me,
I'm only going to want it back.
I'll probably pretend I didn't see,
But knowing me, I'll want you back again, and again
'Til the word has lost it's meaning,
And love is all that stays. Only love remains.

If you should ever feel that something's wrong,
I'm going to want to put it right,
To bring a happy ending to our song,

Has a lot in common thematically with Tell Me Why

If there's something I have said or done
Tell me what and I'll apologize
If you don't really can't go on
Holding back these tears in my eyes

Well, I beg you on my bended knees
If you'll only listen to my pleas
Is there anything I can do
'Cause I really can't stand it, I'm so in love with you
