Can't resist those obscure McCartney gems. Paul was always more experimental than given credit for. I love McCartney, McCartney II and RAM and his under-the-radar tracks throughout his career.

Don't know if the song has already been mentioned but The Fool On The Hill is such a beautiful one by Paul.
Every week I have a new favourite Beatles' song

Daily trivia: Composer Jerry Goldsmith got the idea for using a recorder in the theme song for the late 60's-early 70's TV drama Room 222 from Fool on the Hill.



Even when I was a kid I always thought that was a really interesting theme song.

Written and produced by McCartney (1969).

Seriously, Paul was/is brilliant. This would have been one of Paul's "granny songs" if he did it with the Beatles, but sung by a women's it's fantastic!

OMG, what I said above:



Just goes to show how much the arrangement can make or break a song.

Curious to see what "establishment" figures like Leonard Bernstein thought of the Beatles back in the day. Bernstein was one of the few back then who recognized how inventive the Beatles were.

I'll never forget that night. I heard the news from Howard Cosell. That was my ultimate "Where were you" moment

I was never much of a fan, but I do remember hearing about it and thinking how sad it was.
