Paul McCartney: “Another Day”
The first single of McCartney’s solo career. Truthfully, I tend to think of all the music The Beatles made after they broke up to be just one big continuation of the White Album sessions.
The bad stuff is just outtakes— I basically disregard it, as if it was never released— and the good stuff just makes up one gigantic Volume Two of The White Album that is never finished.
This song (which was written and previewed during the Let It Be sessions) is as good as anything Paul ever did with The Beatles.
I went to school at Sir Paul’s Liverpool Institute For Performing Arts (LIPA) from 1995-98 and when I graduated he was the one who handed me my pin commemorating being part of that school’s first graduating class.
One other time, he came into the canteen when I was eating beans and chips and everybody else went nuts and screamed and jumped up on the table but I decided I would rather react to him like he was an ordinary human being and not be a maniac about it, but I probably looked like I was the craziest person in the room as I just kept on eating my chips and beans while everyone else jumped and screamed at the sight of Paul McCartney.
