The Commonwealth inclusion is nice; wished I could’ve thought of any Canadacentric lyric to cite…maybe there’s something in the solo catalogues, of which I’m quite ignorant, especially post-1980…

For the Commonwealth, you could count New Moon Over Jamaica – a McCartney collaboration with Johnny Cash

Ooh thats a good one! Love that song, (particularly the Coasters original), lyrics of which our boys updated a bit to give some more modern detectives (Peter Gunn) a shoutout.

(BTW, thats “…North West Mounted [Police]”, Paul, not “Mountie” paul-mccartney)

12. Honey Pie (She was a working girl, north of England way)

13. Glass Onion (the “bent-backed tulips” of the Parkes restaurant on Beauchamp (pronounced ‘Beecham’) Place, Knightsbridge, London)

Sometimes being a Beatle gave them the edge even over other celebrities. Their favourite restaurant was Parkes on Beauchamp Place. It was very small and very expensive and no matter who you were a table had to be booked weeks in advance because there were only four or five tables. The Beatles, however, knew Tom Benson who ran it and to them it was an outpost of working-class Liverpool where they could always be assured of getting the best table, the one next to the kitchen, whenever they turned up, unannounced.

Tom would bend the petals back on tulips to create a strange organic sculpture for each plate, the stamen and inside colouring of the petals making an almost unrecognisable object. John referred to them in Glass Onion : ‘Looking through the bent back tulips, to see how the other half live.’ The other half being the wealthy Chelsea crowd who patronised the restaurant, as well as, presumably, the parts of a tulip not normally seen.

Paul McCartney : Many Years from Now (1997)

Better than looking in the mirror
