Beautiful Night was written when Linda was dying of cancer. 

Insanely good song.

It is a good song. 

However, I seem to have gotten the impression that Paul had it kicking around for years before he recorded it. 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

The earliest version of Beautiful Night was first recorded in New York in August 1986, @Beatlebug @sir walter raleigh, so it had definitely been around a while, and so was NOT written in response to Linda's cancer.

The following people thank Ron Nasty for this post:
